OK so enough of the wierdy leftfield oddities. Check this banging 20 minute mix from the Broken Hookers. It is without a doubt the best mix I've heard in ageeeeeeeeeeeeees. Properly banging. Some nice old school references. Donna Summer and Curtis McClaine thrown in. And lots and lots of bass.

I ripped the mix from ArePeopleReal 21. I put a post up about the Broken Hookers APR podcast before. They put together an incredible fortnightly podcast with a mix from themselves and a guest together with loads of other gems.

If you prefer your beats a bit more on the minimal side check this mix from Allez Allez curator Steve Nolan. Allez Allez are responsible for the Wednesday Kompakt nights at Plastic People, who have seen, among others, Gui Boratto (I was there!!) and SuperMayer grace the decks/plug in their laptops. This mix was done for french blog site Get The Curse which puts out regular podcasts.

Get into this minimally groove driven mix. Edgy, dark and anx-ridden. Lush, warm and accommodating. It breaks down really nicely towards the end.
