100th Post! – Rhythm ‘n’ Roots Volume X

This is our 100th post on Rhythm ‘n’ Roots since the transition to WordPress, so I’d just like to say thanks to everyone who reads and supports the blog. To celebrate I have put together a Rhythm ‘n’ Roots Mix which also happens to be mix number 10: double celebration!

Rhythm ‘n’ Roots Volume X is full of fresh beats from across the world with songs in new contexts, remixes, mashups and new material. No genre or BPM restrictions. Tracklist and links after the break.

Rhythm ‘n’ Roots Volume IX

Rhythm ‘n’ Roots presents RnR Volume IX, a mix of brilliant music released over the past few months around the world, including remixes, mash-ups, re-edits and original material. It is a celebration of musical diversity in the twenty-first century, highlighting how scenes and styles have come together, exchanging ideas and pushing in new directions. Just one example from the mix: A Tribe Called Red, a Native American DJ crew based in Ottawa, Canada remixing Caetano Veloso, a key figure in the 1960s Brazilian Tropicalista counter-culture, in a style itself invented by mashing up two genres from two sides of the world: Moombahton. Listen to the mix for free via Mixcloud or DL here. Tracklist with links and information after the jump, enjoy!
