broken mixtape

I’m back with another global mixxxtape selection, this week I invite you to get warm & sweaty with DJ WastePicker, get filthy with Dieselboy, and relax with a post-filth smoke & Dibiase…

DJ WastePicker

dj wastepicker africa

An excellent mix here in which the DJs ego takes a back seat to allow the amazing music within to speak for itself. That’s not to say there’s no skill on show here from WastePicker: first and foremost it’s an awesome selection, which is the main skill of any DJ, whilst the mixing itself is not overly flashy, creating extended blends or mashups, but rather goes for subtle understated transitions. WastePicker warms us up with some afrobeat & hip hop, ramping up into globalhaus as the mix goes on. The Nkasei tune is amazing, as is the super mellow finish from Pacific Steppaz.

If you’re around Edinburgh then check Wastepicker out at Departure Lounge

Dieselboy - Unleashed

I was stoked to stumble across this mix from Dieselboy… I used to be well into my d&b towards the end of the 90s, and when my brother went to live in America for a while in 2000 or so he sent me back a Dieselboy mix CD which blew me away with its intensity, the beats collapsing over themselves with apocalyptic precision, always on the verge of self destruction. It represented the sound of the USA taking a British electronic genre and not only understanding it (which was rare enough at the time) but building on it and expanding it. This mix continues in that vein, although by now these styles have infused around the world so it’s not quite the revelation that mix was ten years ago. There’s some EPIC dubstep / drumstep in here… Check the build from 22.20 to the drop at 22.40, but try not to break anything. IT’S TIME TO GET FUCKING GRIMEY. 40:45 is UGLY. It will leave you feeling VIOLATED. (I think it’s Zardonic + Numbernin6 feat Messinian – End Of Days (Dieselboy VIP) which I can’t find anywhere online… I guess I’m not enough of a VIP). After about 45 minutes he slows the pace down for straight up dubstep until the end, which is a constant ugly violation. It actually got a bit too much for me after a while

Well I think we need to pull it back a little after all that ugliness, and MondayJazz‘s weekly mix series can always be relied upon to deliver on the mellowness. This week’s mix from Dibiase is ‘a journey into ever vibrant Californian beats phenomena’, a blissed out smoker’s delight full of wonky, soulful hip hop beats.
