So far, 2016 has been pretty serious about not letting us get too distracted from our mortality. Here to remind us all about the joy of being alive: a foursome of tribute mixes full of classics plucked from the #RIP2016 stream that's been flooding our days.
Prince Tribute Mixes
Every Prince selection is bound to trigger debate, so I'll give you two:
one with mainly lesser known cuts, mixed a few years ago for Red Bull Music Academy by DJ U-Tern ...
... and one focused more on classics by Raji Rags for NTS
Phife Dawg Tribute Mix by Gilles Peterson
Let it be known: Phife is missed. Even if you're not familiar with his music/legend, this mix is a sure shot.
Focusing on the funky stuff from the 1974-1984 period of David Bowie's legacy.
