The Polypunk mixtapes. "selected in Tokyo, designed in London, posted from Brooklyn, hopefully enjoyed around the world." From digi nikki. via.

I haven't dug through all these yet (there are 25!) but there are some real gems buried in the mixes. The "By This River" (Eno) remix on the first one for example. And the J.J. Cale jam starting about 17 minutes into # 24.

It's amazing, yacht rock's influence is overreaching. Hipsters now consider smooth music part of their elite knowledge.

Digiki's semi-regular PolyPunk mixes are by far my favorite thing to listen these days. Always top notch eclectic taste and choices from a whole spread of sub-cultural to pop-cultural.

Do go taste them all.

Sadly discontinued but still available, go check out the OK Fred podcasts as well:
