After introducing the world to the beauty of The Weeknd, Drake’s blog is again operating on a high-quality level. His forthcoming collaboration with Jamie xx results in love for his Benji B mix and the I’ll Take Care Of U video.
But he also featured Valentine and the brilliant Novacane tune of Odd Future’s own little Drake: Frank Ocean.
Jamie xx Newsnight remix
Speaking of a Fantastic Mr Fox mix:
this one is from the Tiger Beer x Get Me! event (with already mentioned mixes from Pariah and Julio Bashmore) and contains only good music + a new (updated) Jamie xx tune at the end: Beat For.
Download the whole thing here.
Beats from Thom.
On Valentine’s Day. How sweet.

Out of his Vice mix. Details are rare.
Finally a new Bleep+Sonic Router podcast.
Always high quality music and decent commentary. This time with recent work from Lunice, Jacques Greene, Shackleton, Jamie xx and many more.
Raise your arms, for I’ve collected my 15 favorite tracks of January in one single youtube playlist. They were all dropped on the internet in full this month - apart from that Dark Sky tune (and even James Blake and XXXY, but where do you draw the line).
Jamie xx, Nicki Minaj and (who else) James Blake are the big winners. Seems fair to me.
