Oh Boy, this mix from DJ Hype for Radio 1’s Essential Mix might be too much for you to handle. Really I suggest you go back to your Kelly Clarkson or Tiesto. This will give you nightmares and make you wet your bed. You have been warned.
Pendulum â€“ Tarantula [Original Proto Version] (Dub)
Noisia – Deception (Dub)
Original Sin And Taxman â€“ Casino (Ganja Dub)
Shy FX – Everyday [Chase N Status Remix] (Digital Soundboy)
My first introduction to John B can be blamed on my nemisis Melissa S who had his Visions album/compilation way back in 1998. That album is rediculous and if you can find it I suggest you buy it. If you have it please send me a copy.
Since then he has gone considerably left and slightly diagonal with the whole electrostep fusion of 80’s synths and the dnb breakbeat. His podcast involves a bit of talking but seems to be a bit kinder to the listener.
When I was in England for my Junior year of Uni a good friend, Mat Brown, turned me onto the weekly Essential Mix. We would jam out pre saturday evening and the artists involved were usually pretty sick. Once you get past the uber jockey Pete Tong its a conucopia of audible delights.
This mix is from Noisia whom I have only recently become knowledgable of from a name perspective. One side effect of over consumption in my 20’s is a lack of names to go with events and places. Oh well, if you like eclectic, dark, and challenging music have a listen.
