Bonobo’s own tracks and remixes show up alongside those from Jungle, Sharon Von Etten, Dark Sky, Jimpster, Will Arcane, Kelis, Martyn, Leatherette, and Vangelis.

James Murphy & Pat MahoneyFabriclive 36

We end this week with a classic mix from 2007 posted yesterday by DFA Records. James Murphy & Pat Mahoney, formerly of LCD Soundsystem, offer up an hour of fantastic tracks including those from Instant Funk, GQ, Lenny Williams, Baby Talk, Love Committee, Junior Bryon, City of Women, and LCD Soundsystem. James and Pat offered up a primer for this mix:

“We’re pretty excited. We find doing mix CDs horrifying to a certain degree because there’s nobody there, so it’s just like, “What are we doing?!” It’s like you’re just yelling into the air. We bought an old Bozak for this – the first DJ mixer ever built, hand-built. It sounds incredible. Everything sounds nicer and bigger and smoother and beautiful. The mix itself will have a little bit of stuff that isn’t necessarily what we’d play in a club. But we’d like it to be fun. So we’ll just do it a bunch of times live. Do it until you like it, that’s actually our motto.”
