Okay so I didn’t actually get round to making a mix last month but I’ve been listening to quite a few.
The first one I searched out is a Steppas & Dubstep mix, nice heavy bass & some big tunes in it as well. One for any time of day, be the sun shining down or in a dark cave somewhere.
Next was a couple of mixes from the much more professional & on top of it online mag called inhabit - http://www.inhabitonline.co.uk/ . It’s a seriously good read & look & listen, if you want info about anything that’s cool or will be cool in the future head over there.
So to the mixes, the first is from Reuben G who I interviewed a while back about his soundsystem that’s part of Liquid Steel Sounds. This time he’s on a housey vibe & bring tunes from here & there with tight claps & a smooth mix through out. A good one for a lazy afternoon, sit back & soak up the bleeps & bloops.
Next is a mix from the previous interviewee who is making moves around the scene, Kidnap Kid come with this mix bringing all his knowledge of garage & house to the table & creating a sublime mix of bassy bits & nice noises.
Here’s a mix from 2-DP, a Sheffield boy originally but now based in Winchester. Still pumping out the good stuff though. This ones for those weirdos that like house like me, a spattering of that future garage stuff again & just general goodness. Also featuring a track by Sheffield bad boy, now based in Leeds, Kidnap Kid. Check out his Facebook page - http://on.fb.me/juHoN3 - for links to his soundcloud & stuff where his sounds are, some good stuff on there.
Finally there’s a mix from Sheffield soundboy Akid, one of the founding members of <20hz Sound System, if your looking for some conscious sound with real heavy bass and nasty noises that will make you wanna bang your head against the wall, or just to make you pull that bass-induced grimace check this mix out.
That’s all for now, keep on sending me stuff to listen to & keep on making those big mixes!
Welcome to the first bumper edition of Mix Fix, a somewhat regular look at some mixes i’m currently enjoying & liking.
So it briefly felt like the summer was here & I felt a craving for some Hip Hop, especially as I do alot of driving these days for work & Hip Hop is generally good driving music. After searching around a bit I found this little beut, to be honest most of what I found was agreeable but this one was the one I liked best. Hip Hop grove goodness, enjoy!
On the idea of summer tunes check out Reuben G Spring 2011 Dancehall Mix if your enjoying the sun & want something to shake your body bits to. Featuring old & new tunes, bangers one & all, get some shaking done!
I recently felt myself craving for some “Future Garage”, to be honest i’m not quite sure I knew what that genre actually meant at the time but after searching soundcloud for it I found the below mix. Bass with a difference, the difference being the bass is the same but the bleeps & bloops are a bit different. I especially like the last couple of songs. Enjoy!
I know I might have said that the summer could be here but I just can’t get this mix out of my mind & everytime I listen to it I feel better & enjoy it the same as before. Been really feeling MJ Cole’s productions & I think this mix still works even in the summer. Enjoy!
Hope you liked the first Mix Fix, if you have a mix you’d like me to listen to & potentially put in the next edition please link or send it to me at email@example.com .
Here’s the second Q&A this ones more centred around a sound system, I’m hoping to interview someone from all the sounds in Sheffield & beyond so if you know of anyone that’s be interested drop me a line.
