I’ve finally had the time to give a solid listen to a few different mixtapes that I have been meaning to give my full ear attention to. First up is Oops It’s 4am from Ryan Hemsworth who is a producer and DJ that I have owed a post to for some time now after he sent two singles that I honestly just haven’t had the time to write about. However this mix helps to showcase his skills in both fields offering a great selection of tracks from a varied group of artists as well as a closing track by himself. Clocking in at just under an hour this mix is a smooth ride through spaced out hazy Hip-Hop and House that is perfect for getting your party started or winding it down right. You can download the entire mix through this Soundcloud and be sure to check out the rest of his productions here featuring work with Shady Blaze, that closing track from his mix and a great remix of All Of The Lights.

Next in line is Daniel Klag who had this mix premiere through Stadiums & Shrines at the beginning of last month in order to treat listeners to the sort of flowing ambient sounds that will be found on his upcoming AMDISCS release Weird Fiction. This is the perfect mix for exploring your inner self and allowing yourself to daydream while being taken away by a seamless sweeping mix of minimal electronic sounds. The mix features work from some very talented ambient artists as well as two new tracks from his upcoming album. You can find the mix through that Stadiums link through Mediafire so fire up those headphones and prepare yourself for a subtle ride through a world of sound.
