New Mix: In Country

deemo-incountry

Post-Polaris, I’ve been pretty occupied with some family stuff, so the writing is naturally sparse. As is the listening, I must confess – aside from a few standouts, my year-end list will be tilted towards the beginning of the year I think. But! Mixing is always a bit of relief from what ails, hence this one. Turn it up and enjoy.

New mix: Inside Out

folder

Polaris is done! No word of a lie, being on the grand jury this year was one of the best things that has ever happened to me in my music critic career. I’m still floating. I am also way behind in any semblance of being up on new music, so consider this mix remedial singles listening. Grime seems to surge in fits and starts, but no other electronic genre sets the neurons firing like it does, even if Wiley is revisiting past glories. Plenty of heat to go around. Ipman! That is all.

Mix: Buss it!

deemo - buss it

This is a fun one. Lots of bouncy grime and du… okay, we don’t call it that anymore. But some lively non-4/4 beats and hot bars from the likes of Novelist and Redders (on the Sam Binga cut). Something to put a spring in your step. It’ll be a lot more fun than the server shenanigans I endured getting it online. I digress. Enjoy this and keep your eyes peeled for more record reviews soon.

Mix: War Games

Expedition 21 Docking

Rough and rugged, rugged and raw – is anyone else feeling like grime is having a moment? There’s plenty beyond that realm in this ruffneck bizness mix, but I do have to say that the Boxed Vol. 1 comp feels like the actual resurgence of that sound that the Grime 2.0 comp was trying to manufacture (not that Ninja Tune’s set was unwelcome). Lock into this sound like you’re sitting in a beat-up Ford Fiesta trying to pull in some bashment pirate radio…

Mix: Dark Days

dark-days-web

You may wonder why I only post reviews of albums on here and not singles. Or you may not. Anyways I’m explaining here, so STFU for a minute. I don’t review singles because, if I like them, odds are they end up in a mix like this. Thus I feel compelled to point out how totally fucking bananas-awesome Wesley Matsell and Gerry Read’s latest singles are, which is obviously why I included them. Also the Recondite track, which isn’t new. Did I mention you should listen to this? You should listen to this.

Mix: On Road

folder

Scrub down your NYE-sozzled livers and get back out dancing. I feel like Tom Skerritt in Top Gun telling Maverick to get back in the cockpit and go shoot down some MiGs. It’s the only way, people. Throw on this brackish, dancehall/garage/grime-inspired batch of tunes beforehand, it’ll make your antennae twitch. Two opposable thumbs up.
