Mixes I’m digging

Written by: 23 March 2011 4 Comments

Nothing special today, just a few mixes I’ve picked up over the past few weeks.

Kicking off in house territories, little white earbuds has an interesting interview and mix from Tin Man. I’d heard a little of Tin Man’s stuff, being aware of him from the start of Tama Sumo’s Panorama Bar Cd from a few years back. He has an interesting production style, and this is an enjoyable wee mix. Check it out.

Moving into somewhat heavier realms, new producer Blawan has been making some waves. Recommended by Mick, I’m digging on this one.

The labyrinth aside, the best gig I went to in Japan last year was Kode 9 and Martyn. I was looking forward more to Martyn’s set but was surprised by how much I enjoyed Kode 9’s mix of dubstep, grime, and loads of Uk funky, all mixed up in between blasts on the vuvuzela (it was during the world cup). He recently did the essential mix, your enjoyment of which probably will correlate with your enjoyment of uk funky. I quite like it.

Finally, a couple of things from further leftfield. I like eclectic mixes, they’re a great way to discover new artists you may not normally check.

Don’t know much about Roll The Dice, but here’s an interesting eclectic mix I found – the tracklisting should give you some idea of whether it’ll be your cup of tea or not.

Blackest Ever Black venture into the darkness with their mix “she died with her eyes open”. It’s dark and different, and as we move into autumn I look forward to more from them.

    man I wish you could subscribe to the fact mixes via itunes… seems so old fashioned to have to visit their site 🙂

    She Died With her Eyes Opened is quite strange, can’t decide if I think its awesome or horrid – good sign imo

    I told you Bob, become a goth! It’s what I’m doing this winter.

    Was listening to that Tin Man mix just before – I quite enjoyed it as well.

    Will check the rest, although I don’t think I’m in season for goth just yet.

    Loving the Tin Man and that eclectic mix was a great listen too – don’t go to the dark side Benny!
