MIDWEEK MIXXXTAPES: DUBBLE8, MIKKAEL, ROYAL-T

This week: Religious roots n bass from DJ Dubble8, chunky house from Mikkaël and grimey garage from Royal-T

DJ Dubble8

Interesting and fun little mix here from Dubble8 via Mobtown, exploring religious influences on reggae, afrobeat, electro & more…

In this mix I have brought together Islamic, Christian, and Jewish musical traditions, as well as modern musical forms which either sample the sounds of these traditions or carry on their spiritual legacy. Taking a cue from Osvaldo Golijov’s song cycle Ayre, my aim was to explore the common connections between some of the music of these great religions, rooted in a shared heritage in the Middle East. While Golijov’s work focuses on the diaspora of these traditions in the direction of Europe, this mix also explores the transmission of these Middle Eastern religious traditions through Africa.

Mikkaël

Here at GB we’re obsessed with new genres, new combinations of sounds and styles from all over the globe, and something as pedestrian as just plain house barely gets a look in. But for me house is a genre that, despite barely having changed for years, just keeps on giving. Especially in these summer months, it’s perfect outdoor sunshine morning free party music. Chunky, spacious and generous, it embodies that freedom (free as in speech, not as in beer) in the phrase ‘free party’.

Royal-T

Garagey/Grimey mix from Royal-T opening with his own ‘Sax on the Beach’ which – let’s not mince words – is HELLA CHEESY, but also brilliant. I could do without the Katy B remix, that vocal is terrible (am I going out on a limb here? Katy on a Mission was amazing but people seem to be lapping up everything she’s done since then without noticing that it’s almost uniformly terrible), and in my opinion he crunches one or two of these mixes with some completely clashing basslines – with such grimey music you could argue it kinda works, just ups the tension even more, but if you ask me dude needs to get on those eq panels… anyway overall this is full of UK fyah, check it…
