Get Your Hump On With The Death Set Mixtape

From the lovely folks over at Mishka:

Those wacky Australian, now Brooklyn based funbags, The Death Set (changed spacing), have really gone and done it now.  This is an amazing 43-track party mix that will make for a great party but I wouldn’t put this on at a house party because it will turn into a whirling tornado of humping and grinding, bumping and jiving, slamming and sliding.

Don’t play this at a house party!? Puh-lease! I want to extend a special thanks to The Death Set kids for releasing the soundtrack to my birthday party just in time.

And if you want to get your hump on, swing by The Cove tonight to celebrate the release of Artificially Sweetened with open bars, a live performance, and DJ sets galore! Details after the jump…

Mishka Presents A Trillwave Mixtape; Unifies Hip Hop and Hipster

As the rain poured down outside my window, I started to get super bummed. I know the hot weather is lame too and we’ve all been complaining, but summer time is designed specifically to make you sweat. So as my melodramatic depression sunk in, along came Mishka with this “trillwave” mixtape to get me through.

The Hood Internet may be putting the hip hop in hipster, hitting all the spots that Girl Talk just can’t reach, by mixing some unexpected tracks– Ice Cube x CFCF, Birdman x Washed Out, Jay Electronica x Toro y Moi, what!? It’ll definitely get you ready to shake your ass in a lo-fi kind of way… whatever that means.

Download: Live Recording of Keepaway at FREEwilly Northside Fest Showcase

Our beloved headliners from Sunday night’s Northside showcase at Brooklyn Bowl, Keepaway, are the first full set recording to be released by NYC Taper, who happened to be in attendance. As the trio took the stage, they gave shout outs to Kobe Bryant, Lil’ B, as well as the man responsible for Intro to Based 101 before diving head first into a set filled with rhythmic keys reminiscent of the Rugrats theme song. Basically, really fucking rad.

So if you have fond memories of the show, or you couldn’t make it because you’re lame, relive the whole thing right here. We’ll keep you posted on recordings from the rest of Sunday’s artists.
