May I present my favourite podcasts dealing with dj mixes in the last months.
1. Resident Advisor
Every week a new mix and everyone is of high quality. The genres are diverse from heavier Berghain techno (Dettmann, Fengler) to Experimental (Surgeon), Discoish (Brothers Bouaziz), straigt club (Carl Craig) or dubby and steppy (Applebim).
Here is an example by Scuba ak SCB

2. Ninja Tunes Solid Steel
Ninja Tunes used to be and is one of my favourite labels, with their Solid Steel radio show they always manage to surprise and show the diversity of their taste. Bass filled music, rare funk tunes, club bangers come together in this always very well selected and presented mixes. Here is an example of Clubb Rock’s Darren Judge & Mikee Lazy with tracks from Lady Chann, Seiji and MJ Cole, Untold, Joy Orbison and Ramadanman.

Holding up the Drum’n’Bass flag for the German scene, J-Cut and Kolt Siewerts unregularly present fresh tunes from the drum and bass universe, pretty straight, with J-Cut leaning more to the liquid, said easy and dense, side of the range, Siewerts with more jumpy and wobbly stuff. With a very entertaining style of presenting their show they soon hit the German podcast charts. Here is one of their own production, also a hit last year, the “Flute Tune” to get an idea.

4. Fabric London
Despite the tragic fact that London’s probably best club has gone into administration their podcast is one of the podcast pearls at the electronic music’s heaven. Great mixes and music presentations by people like Four Tet, Surgeon, Vadim and Jazzanova. Absolutely listenable.
Update No.2 (thanks to Kay)
6. Also very awesome and for all the dubby dubstep lovers (just like me) around here is the Wax Treatment Podcast. The regular sunday dubstep night at Horst Berlin features DJs like Pete and Surgeon. Dubstep from its nonwobbly, but atmospheric and complex side.
