Yep, that name is totally not as catchy. I’m definitely posting on Wednesday next week. Anyway today we got: DJ Prez with some real African hip hop, Jazzcat with some afrobeat / afro funk and Harley Quinn with a swingin tribute to MCA.

DJ Prez

Mostly Francophone Afro Hip Hop via Nomadic Wax.

This mix is a call to the discovery of another Africa, far from the media clichés: a young continent, connected with the world, which claims and assumes its difference with pride.

Harley Quinn

Electro swing & Beastie Boys mashups – two things that have undoubtedly been done to death. But for some reason the combination of the two just keeps on giving. In tribute to the late great MCA Harley Quinn has put together this mixtape combining classic Beastie vocals with electro swingin sounds… Grab the download for individual tracks.
