Do you like techno, Frank Sinatra, Ibiza or Blade Runner? You do?! Point those peepers south for the week's Sunday mixtape...

Techno For The Smart & Sinful

Why end the weekend with a whimper. Reggie Prim has put together this superb collection of deep, dark and driving techno tunes to see Sunday out with a bang. "You already know what to do," he says. "I don't even need to teach you. You're so smart." Click shuffle and turn it up, in case you were wondering. 

When Frank Was Blue

"When Frank had the blues," prolific playlist maker Reggie Prim says, "the world was tinted grey." A brilliant playlist, perfect Sunday listening, that takes in 36 tracks – that's over three hours – of Ol' Blue Eyes at his bluest. Top, top mixtape. 

Ibiza @ Ushuaia Playlist

We're dreaming of the Bealarics, next, as SamA hits us with a playlist full of "Real house music." This collection of deep house and techno is the soundtrack to the summer in Ibiza, particularly Playa d'en Bossa's super-venue Ushuaia Beach Hotel. Superb. 

Blade Runner - 30th anniversary

We round things off with a playlist marking the 30th anniversary of the release of Blade Runner. The seminal film had an equally unforgettable soundtrack by the amazing Vangelis. Worth a listen for the absolutely gorgeous Love Theme alone. magnificent

Long live the mixtape!
