Andrew Weatherall + Timothy J. Fairplay + Friendly Fires Boiler Room Radio
This atypical Boiler Room session sees the ever-charismatic Andrew Weatherall and his partner in the Asphodells, Timothy J. Fairplay, joined by energetic dance-rock outfit Friendly Fires, who, it so happens, have also been spending some time in the studio with Weatherall and Fairplay. We recently previewed this glorious collaboration, and this two-hour excursion showcases this delightful congregation's shared musical interests which ranges from cosmic oddities to krautrock to the slo-mo dance. Playing out as a rotation of back-to-back selections from each gent in the room, it's more selector style than DJ mix, but the gems on display and the witty banter make for an engrossing listen.

Jamie xx + John Talabot Beats in Space #723
So painfully epic it had to be split out into two segments, the prolific pairing of John Talabot and Jamie xx for this episode of Tim Sweeney's Beats in Space may very well go down as one of the best mixes we've featured in our DJ Mix Essentials content series. Tripped out, spacey, and infectiously deep, the mix is a trading-twos set from balearic maestro Talabot and left field dance guru Jamie xx. The two are a match made for this blog. Be prepared to set on repeat.
