DJ Contakt – Pool Bar Reminiscence Mix

Here’s a little mix my pal Wayne AKA DJ Contakt did. He used to run a night at the Pool Bar in Shoreditch that I used to go to many years back and would play all sorts of wicked hip hop down there. Here’s a mix of tunes he did as a little retrospective of the night.

Logic – Jazzy Hip Hop Instrumentals Mix

My old mate Logic made a little mix of mainly MF Doom and A Tribe Called Quest hip hop instrumentals for, believe it or not, a wedding he was at recently. I wish they played that sort of things at the weddings I go to, I’d much rather hear that than the Village People.

Anyway, I loved it so thought I’d share it with you here.

Haste – Live at Off The Record – 28/9/2013

I played a vinyl only jungle set on the 28th September at one of my favourite bars in London, Camden’s Lockside Lounge, for Off The Record. I generally play with a laptop now when I’m out and about (it’s been a while since I’ve played old skool anywhere) so it was nice to play some proper records. I definitely didn’t miss the transportation side of things, though.

The crowd were just a Saturday night bar crown so I wasn’t able to dig too deep, hence a few anthems in here amongst a few others that I thought might work well. The first tune was actually Seiji‘s last one, he played a wicked set of various bits and bobs including some lovely classic house and garage.

Serum Studio Mix July 2013

I don’t listen to much D&B any more but it’s nice to dip in and out every now & then and check a few mixes. Of all the more recent producers who make tracks that some might call jump up I’ve always liked Serum’s tunes and I’ve heard a few mixes of his as well in the past which have all been good stuff. He’s also a good lad and posts nice sample sources on the RDB forums every now & then.

This mix is unashamedly about self-promotion and features mainly his or Bladerunner’s tracks but I’ll forgive him as there is a fair mix of styles in there alongside the standard steppers. We had a nice little armchair bop to this in the office today and you should like it if 175 BPM is your thing.

  1. Dee Bo General – The Specialist (Serum Remix)

  2. Serum & Coda – Witchcraft

  3. BTK – Try

  4. Serum & Coda – Hindsight

  5. Serum – Snapback

  11. Serum – Energy

  12. Level 2 – Bass Reverse

  13. Serum & Bladerunner – Wu Tang 2013

  14. Coda – Untitled

  15. Bladerunner – Spartan Law VIP

  16. Serum – Deep Inside

  17. BTK – Bandits

  18. Hazard – Air Guitar

  19. Bad Company – Hornet

  20. Dillinja – Leather

  21. Dillinja – All Aboard

  22. Frankee – Harlequin
