Afrofuturism, throwback club music and 6-train bangers: The week’s best free mixes

by John Twells And Chris Kelly

Extended Family is a new mix series that looks to “chronicle the vibe” of Washington, DC’s house, techno and experimental electronic world, a scene repped by local labels Future Times, Peoples Potential Unlimited and 1432 R. First up in the series is Mike Petillo, one half of both Future Times and Protect-U. Frog In The Coffee Pot is the type of cosmic crate-digging journey that we’ve come to expect from Petillo and company, as he meanders through New Agey synthscapes, lo-fi detritus, and dubbed-out reggae, pop and freestyle before settling on a handful of timeless grooves that traverse house, garage, techno and beyond.
