New mixes this week from a legend who left us this week, the latest from Them Jeans, and a showcase of rap in 2014.

The interview that accompanies this mix is definitely worth a read. Check it out here.

DJ YodaRap is Good 2014

Our final mix this week is from UK turntablist DJ Yoda showcasing rap and hip hop in 2014. Yoda says: “I wanted to do a mix to show fans of “classic” or “golden era” rap that there’s still plenty of incredible hip-hop coming out in 2014 – you just have to look at bit deeper than most of the commercial pop stuff!” The mix features tracks from Danny Brown, Kendrick Lamar, Jay Electronica, Action Bronson, Evidence, Roc Marciano, Step Brothers, Q-Tip, Busta Rhymes, and Kanye West. Enjoy!
