It’s Mixtape Day here at the EB offices! We’re always hungry for audio to shriek and yell about like brutes, and today we’re definitely having plenty of auralgasms thanks to four new mixtapes. Kingdom‘s is perhaps the most surprising: it’s for a video game. The Fade To Mind head was chosen to curate a mix of dark, cutting-edge club music by the makers of upcoming game The Darkness II, and naturally features killer selections like Nguzunguzu and Fatima al Qadiri. Download it here. Teen Witch‘s mixtape is not surprising it all; we already knew we were gonna love it. The Chicago CULTist (who just released the first issue of his reconceptualized-culture magazine….buy it!) has put out a special compilation for Opening Ceremony that’s full to the brim with the sort of mutated pop madness we expect from him, including a few choice edits.

Meanwhile, Dom (of Mount Kimbie fame) made a mix for the radio show NST. It can be streamed here about an hour in and features EB faves like Death Grips, MikeQ and The Bug. If all of this bass is making you too hyper, cool down with Com Truise‘s Check Yo Ponytail mix below, which features plenty of ’80s minimal wave nostalgia.

Here’s the seventh edition of our weekly music video update called V I D E O D R O M E. Enjoy!
1. Rikslyd – All in Love? (dir.?)
Rikslyd is the Paris-via-Norway project of Diis Paradiis. She describes her music as "Champagne Electro" – which sounds pretty fitting.
2. Jealov – DCW (directed by Jealov)
Dreamy hip hop is the best described Jealov. At first listen the ambient ‘DCW’ suddenly becomes a true hip hop beat without much realization.
3. Death Grips – Culture Shock (directed by Jesse Hegney)
4. Dom – Living In America (dir.?)
Above is the latest video for DOM‘s single ‘Living in America’ off of last years Sun Bronzed Greek Gods EP.
5. Frank Ocean – Novacane (directed by Nabil Elderkin)
Frank Ocean drops his newest visual for his song ‘Novacane’, and the thick slowness of the title’s namesake fits the video perfectly.
6. IE – Dungeon of Drunk Girls (footage of So Cal Party Crews)
7. Jonti – Firework Spraying Moon (directed by Henry DeMaio)
8. Diva – Glow Worm (directed by Lily X. Wahrman)
Digging the new Diva video. Her new album The Glitter End drops in August via Critical Heights.
9. Vybz Kartel – Go Go Wine (directed by Patrick Fraser)
‘Go Go Wine’ is the first official single off the highly-anticipated Vybz Kartel album Kingston Story. Video is based around a strippers as the song title suggests. Neat.
10. DAVIDA – My Rubber Room (directed by ?)
Part Time frontman Davida Loca just posted this video on his facebook, and it’s on heavy rotation here. Check it out!
