For the second in our monthly mix series, we asked Proper Songs label boss Ben Smith, if he would be up for creating something a bit different to our usual mixes. We’ve seen him DJ a couple of times, and the man is a proper selector.
Seamlessly mixed with a brilliant track selection, this has got to be one of our favourite mixtapes from the last 12 months.
1. Benge - 1977 Yamaha CS30
2. Scientist - Plague Of Zombies
3. Kerri Chandler - Ladbroke Grove
4. Teengirl Fantasy - Cheaters
5. Fela Kuti - Roforofo Fight
6. Talking Heads - Born Under Punches (The Heat Goes On) [Live]
7. New Order - Bizarre Love Triangle
8. Special Benny - Sine And Step
9. Tweet - Oops (Oh My)
10. CFCF - You Hear Colours
11. Smith & Mighty - Wishing On A Star
12. Flying Lotus - Glendale Gallereria
13. Danny Williams - Moon River
Special mention needs to go to Aysha Chaudary (illustrator/amasian) who designed the really fucking cool artwork for this project. Whilst listening to the mix, I highly recommend you click here to check out her fascinating portfolio. Thankyou Aysha!
