New mix: Wait For Me

folder

Lyfe, LOL amirite? Big changes lately for me, hence the lengthy gap between mixes. But you don’t care about that, you just want beatzzzzzzz. (As you should.) This one was prepped a while ago but is finally ready now, for your hooptie’s 5-disc CD changer with the windows down. And keep your eyes peeled for the next mix, it’s a scorcher.

Mix: Massive 2: Metal Plates

folder

Drum and bass was my first dance-music love (unless you count a flirtation with C&C Music Factory in grade school); I think it was a direct route from seeing Prodigy’s “Firestarter” video on MuchMusic to getting hold of MTV’s first Amp compilation and just playing and replaying Goldie’s “Inner City Life” over and over and over. I was all about the breaks, aside from a lingering fondness for Roni Size (firmly wiped out by paying UK import prices at the Eaton Centre HMV to get hold of the Breakbeat Era album… yurgh). I lapped up anything Goldie-related, discovered Alex Reece, Remarc, Plug, Wax Doctor, goggled a bit at Aphex Twin, Alec Empire and Squarepusher’s cuckoo-bananas contributions to the genre, and even made my poor mother turn the car radio to CIUT to catch a ragga jungle show that aired at 6am while we were on our way to school. (Sorry, mom.)

Tech-step pretty much killed the sound off for me, at which point I was deep into IDM anyway – anyone want to buy some Team Doyobi vinyl, not even slightly used, hit me on my beeper. Don’t all call at once. Anyways, the resurgence of Metalheadz, in the form of a flurry of new releases, is plenty of reason to make a sequel to the original Massive mix I did a while back. But all this grime and footwork business goes rather well with it, I must say…
