70s French Jazz Mix by Magical Mystery Mix

Just over an hour of underground 70s French jazz from the likes of Michel Sardaby, Brigitte Fontaine, Jean Luc Ponty, and Henri Texier. I’ll dive into anything jazz related, especially when it’s prefixed with a country. Japanese jazz is a particular favourite and Magical Mystery Mix have given us a few mixes of that variety. Now it’s the turn of France and 63 minutes of…

JAE – Don’t Be My Valentine (Freestyle)

Seeing as JAE didn’t want you to be his Valentine, we haven’t published this on Valentine’s Day. Sometimes you’ve gotta keep it real and be honest. Especially when it comes to love and romance. That’s exactly what JAE did on his freestyle, Don’t Be My Valentine. The LA-based rapper-producer gave a heartfelt speech on what you could expect from him on Valentine’s Day and it…

Flamingosis – “Pleasant Pink” (DJ Guest Mix)

Jersey’s Flamingosis got together with Magical Mystery Mix to create a special DJ mix called Pleasant Pink. We love Flamingosis and we love Magical Mystery Mix. So when we heard there was a collaboration between the two, we didn’t need telling twice. The Jersey-based musician put together a collection of tunes that inspired him, culminating in a sub-40 minute mix titled “Pleasant Pink” featuring the…

Aminé – hunnybee remix

When he snaps, he’s like an alligator. Aminé’s huneybee remix is a great way to start the year. Very few artists spark my interest with the hint of a new album, besides the greats. That’s not to say they aren’t worthy of my time but there are so many to keep track of. But I always find time for Aminé and his video teaser for…

AC3Beats – Nostalgia

Lo-fi boom bap with Zelda and Mario samples? AC3Beats’ Nostalgia lives up to its name. I didn’t get my first games console until 1998 but I played on a few in the preceding years. Whether you were like me or you had them growing up, you’ll appreciate the subject matter on AC3Beats’s new album. Nostalgia has been described as “the musical equivalent of a big, warm…

Madlib, The Afro-Modernist​

Modernism might have a white visage but Madlib’s brand of afro-modernism shouldn’t be overlooked. Film director James Cameron once said, “People call me a perfectionist, but I’m not. I’m a rightist. I do something until it’s right, and then I move on to the next thing.” Fans of Madlib – and Dilla – will be familiar with this ideal. Perfection fuels many creatives in how they…

Samples from Jaylib’s Champion Sound Played by VinRican

Power 106 Los Angeles got DJ VinRican to mix tracks from Champion Sound with the samples they used. It’s officially dope. Say what you want about WhoSampled but I’m sure many of us have searched through and marvelled at the samples used in our favourite tracks. I’ve done it with Jaylib before but there’s always a slight disconnect between the track and the sample when…

Magical Mystery Mix – 70s Japanese Jazz Mix Vol.2

A whole hour of Japanese jazz from the 70’s including rare groove, jazz fusion, drum breaks, and more. Samplefiends rejoice! Magical Mystery Mix have uploaded the second volume of their 70s Japanese Jazz Mix on YouTube and it’s a stonker. There are only 10 tracks on this but each one is packed with jazz goodness from a great transition period in jazz. What’s more, it comes from…
