New logo! Ooh!

I’ve spent the majority of my 26 years on earth making unsolicited and often unwanted mixtapes for friends and loved ones. So the thought that I now get to make one every month of all the best new music out there, that might recieve more than just one cursory, disgruntled skim-listen is quite exciting…

Here is then, the latest in Radar’s series of monthly mixtapes. True to form it’s a mixed bag. Unsurprisingly there’s loads from the ever fertile en vogue lo-fi turf, just as predictably there’s nods to dubstep’s latest and greatest evolutions. But did many predict a crunk/folk hybrid (JJ) or the team-up between Radar favs Salem and Gucci Mane? Or even the arrival of East New York’s Cerebral Ballzy. Perhaps less so…

Anyways, after a good few listens I can testify to this being a killer compilation. It’s chock-full of exclusives and hits-in-the-making. So download and enjoy.
