Celebration of Curation 2013


Mixcloud’s Celebration of Curation is a two week fiesta of collaborations with key Cloudcasters across ten different locations. This year they asked some of the biggest editorial voices around to show us what their cities sound like. The list of partners includes Paul Kalkbrenner, Richie Hawtin, DJ Kentaro, Breach, Miss Kittin, Matthew Dear, Urb Mag, Rex Club, Womb Tokyo, Mixmag France and many more.

Stretch & Bobbito’s show on WKCR was THE independent late-night radio show hosted everyone who was anyone in rap throughout the 90s, and has been described as “The show that launched 1000 careers”.

Another stand out cloudcast: Ahead of his video set at The Doctor’s Orders on 19th October @ Scala, London, Stones Throw head honcho Peanut Butter Wolf has put together this exclusive mix of Stones Throw classics including unreleased gems and loads more by the likes of Madlib, MED, Oh No and loads more this is a real treat for all heads!
