Eclectic DJ Mix Monday

While the UK-based FACT magazine surveys a broad range of popular music content, its regular mix series tends to focus on electronic and hip-hop. Since January, however, the website has featured three distinctive mixes that buck this general trend: Peanut Butter Wolf's 24-hour soul music mix for Valentine's day; the Wild Beasts's eclectic, short-and-sweet mix of classical, black metal, poetry, rock, and folk in support of their new album Present Tense; and Slowdive's rock-and-shoegaze mix compiling many of their inspirations in celebration of the band's reunion. posted by Going To Maine (6 comments total) 43 users marked this as a favorite
One of my favorite mixes, that MeFi user yeahwhatever showed me, is the Ryan Hemsworth FACT mix.

While I mentioned it in a comment on a different, post, I feel that it's worth a second mention here: David Harrington of Darkside recorded a podcast for Modular People that fits snugly alongside these mixes (or at least the Wild Beasts one) in terms of being an eclectic blend of disparate genres and odd edits.

I love Peanut Butter Wolf. He's one of those behind the scenes guys who will probably never get the credit he fully deserves and he seems fine with that.

Patten's mix from 2011 which ranges from The Pixies and My Bloody Valentine to Fleetwood Mac to Madlib to Oval and Autechre. It's not what you'd expect. I don't love it, but there are a few brilliant moments.

I'm going to shamelessly cross-link to myself by pointing to this new-ish post by me, which goes into more detail about Wild Beasts and their new album.
