Mix, mix, mix

Without further ado, a Ronseal-style post containing three of the week's best offers in the free mix department. Does exactly what it says on the tin.

Alex Incyde has mixed up a storm for the latest in Dub War's ongoing series of podcasts, pulling together an impressive roster of none-deeper dubs including new material from Scuba, FaltyDL and Al Tourettes, plus an appearance from Bath boy Asusu's mighty 'No Kya'. Well worth the bandwidth theft for the few minutes it'll take to steal a bit of your hard drive. Download it here.


CB/OB's got a lot of love for Cooly G - even amongst her peer group she seems almost criminally overlooked at times, perhaps because a huge quantity of her best material is only available on the Dub Organizer EPs from Blackmarket Records. Seriously -- take the time to investigate the fourth volume in the series, which shifts from the canned brass stabs and frosty glow of opener 'Weak' to the glorious percussive whirlwind that is 'Vs Perry'. It also happens to include her finest track to date, the softly yearning 'Him Da Biz', which has been rightly rinsed by Kode9 in his sets over the last six months or so. Following on from her tough-as contribution to FACT's podcast series, she's just recorded the first of a promised 'pair' of new mixes for XLR8R. Featuring material from herself, DVA, Martyn & DJ Gregory, it continues to skirt her distinctive line between downtempo atmosphere and dancefloor pace.


Oh, and did someone mention a new free mix from Rinse FM's top man Geeneus? Arriving sometime in advance of his eagerly awaited Volumes Two compilation (hopefully featuring his incendiary collab with Ms. Dynamite, 'Get Low'), it flicks between hard-edged UKF stylings and his recent deeper house and techno excursions. It's good.

  1. Really not keen about the live bongos on the Cooly G mix. Great blog by the way - keep up the good work.
