Even though it's still early on in 2011 I'm pretty certain that a number of the mixes and radio sets that have happen already and are currently floating around the web will still stand out as some of the best even when December comes along and everyone starts reminiscing about the year gone by.
The past week in particular has had its fair share of eclectic and outstanding mixes of which I have chosen my top 3.
To kick off the top 3 I have chosen the '2011 Valentines Mix' from DJ Cable.
This mix features a little bit of something for everyone with tracks ranging from Three 6 Mafia - "Put Cha D. In Her Mouth," to Tinie Tempah - "Wifey," and from Necro - "Get on Your Knees," to Dizzee Rascal "Jezebel."
Watch out for the Ginuwine Vs. L Wiz bootleg!

My second selection for this week's Top 3 mixes comes from DJ Chef and his exceptional "FWD / BIG APPLE pre dubstep mix."
Here's Chef's description from Mixcloud which sums things up perfectly:
"It's the year 2003 in Chef's bedroom. Exclusive short mix done for the Big Apple Records website that never got uploaded! At the time all the tunes were fresh dubplates I cut or white labels Hatcha and John sorted me out early in advance."

And finally number 3 of my top mixes of the week comes from Oil Gang with his promotional mix for Wifey which is tonight @ Alibi (See "Events" section for flyer!)
All I have seen on twitter, grime forum and facebook are endless positive comments about this mix and once you have listened to it you can definitely understand why.
The mix features a vast amount of dubs of up and coming producers and mc's along with a selection of tracks that are currently available for purchase on MP3 and vinyl.
There are too many sick tracks to mention, an absolute MUST for the iPod!
