After this blog post, earlier in the week, you lot have gone world music crazy with some brilliant playlists. But we think this one, dedicated to Brazilian music, from bossa nova to samba classics, is a particularly good weekend mixtape. Guatzup? is the SMP user behind this little cracker.
Next a playlist full of boozy bangers, beer bombs and, er, largery large ones ... It's the act new playlist from agent3613, simply entitled BEER.

Long live the mixtape!
