What up 2011? For the first installment of the year, it’s mostly new stuff, including some dope new artists and projects you must be aware of this year. I’ve added tunes from two names you should be familiar with if you’ve listened to my mixes from last year: Jamie Woon and James Blake. Somewhere in the middle, there’s a triplet featuring Glasgow artist Koreless, presenting a short history of his public work, including a phenomenal remix of Jacques Green’s “The Look” (also, look out for Jacques Green). There’s another triplet showcasing some Detroit’s finest emcees: Magestik Legend, Guilty Simpson, Marv Won, Nametag, and Danny Brown. Elsewhere, be on the lookout for Gang Colors, Fantastic Mr. Fox, and Arp 101. I had to include Jamie XX’s remix of “NY Is Killing Me,” because, like, damn. And to close things out, a smooth joint from Chicago’s The Primeridian into one from Knxwldge, the dope beatmaker from the Klipmode crew.
