Five DJ mixes for self-isolation

We’re delighted to share five mixes from some of the most liveliest musicians and producers currently walking the earth.

We assume that when you see the words ‘DJ mix’ you probably think we’re going to recommend you some cringeworthy David Guetta or Calvin Harris sets from circa 2010.

However, as always, we’re here to enlighten you, and this time we’re delighted to share five mixes from some of the most liveliest musicians and producers currently walking the earth.

Floating Points @ NTS Radio (16 March 2020)

Full of deep soul cuts, as well as some spicy Latin American tunes, which slowly descend/ascend (however you want to look at it) into more electronic beats. It’s a ride.

Perfect for: Kicking off your day, coffee in-hand.

Jessy Lanza @ The Lot Radio (31 May 2019)

80s synth textures that morph into high-octane, futuristic afro-beat rhythms.

Perfect for: Nailing that final spreadsheet, eradicating that post-lunch slump or for smashing out a hefty run.

Boards of Canada @ NTS Radio (23 June 2019)

We guarantee that you’ve never heard any of this music before. It’s experimental, yet expertly curated, all for the legendary electronic music label Warp’s 30th anniversary.

Perfect for: The inquisitive ears who want to go on a spiritual journey.

Floating Points, Four Tet & Caribou @ NTS Radio (23 March 2015)

These three gentlemen, Floating Points, Four Tet and Caribou are to electronic music as Beethoven, Brahms and Bach are to classical music. Their extensive record collections will take you from deep Asia to the east end of London and everywhere in between.

Perfect for: Getting your groove on in your living room.

Organic Music Tokyo @ NTS Radio (8 April 2020)

Once a month, Chee Shimizu delivers a two-hour show of the smooviest (smooth + groovy) music from the extensive collection from his record store.
