Okay people. This one’s long overdue and a day late for a midweek mix, but trust me it’s worth the wait.

This week’s mix is a chilled out affair. Some nice downtempo trip hoppy goodness. I remember first listening to this stuff in the late 90s. I was introduced to the likes of DJs Food, Shadow, Cam and Krush, Mr Scruff and Roots Manuva by my buddy’s Big Nick and Rod Burgos. I can recall many late Saturday nights on Long Street in Cape Town at the now non-existent Cafe Miam and Orchard Bank. Good times.

A Multi-Coloured Escape Pod by United States of Audio features a great selection of some of the finest music on the iconic Ninja Tune label.

Sit back and tune out folks. And big ups Nicky and Rodney.

Love never felt so good | A less creepy homage to the King of Pop.

MICHAEL-JACKSON

I’m not a huge fan of the witchcraft that brought Michael Jackson back from the grave for the Billboard Awards last week.

And though I’m more than a little torn about this whole posthumous Xscape album business, I feel that the video for the Justin Timberlake duet, Love never felt so good, pays fitting homage to the King of Pop, with references to some of his most iconic moments. The song is pretty catchy too.

Action Bronson talks food in delicious new show

Potty mouth, Rap Genius and Foodie, Action Bronson, recently debuted his new food show, Fuck, That’s Delicious. In this first episode, Bronson discusses his world tour with Eminem and the food he got to sample on his travels. I particularly enjoyed him talking about visiting Mzoli’s Place, a fantastic spot for good times and excellent barbecued meat, in my hometown, Cape Town.
