A new decade, a new mix series, why not?! Just at the end of last year you had a tease of what's to come with the 'Label Mix Series'. Here we have the start of an exciting project which we're calling the 'Leeds Locals Mix Series'. Having recently moved to Leeds, (for those that don't know, Leeds is probably one of the top three cities in the UK for underground music) we thought it would be a good idea to push the local talent, exposing the many resident DJs around the various clubs, pushing their nights/labels etc. Hopefully we can build a community of sort, maybe even get a little competition going for 'Best Mix'...?!
First one to drop is Gscratch who has recently been part of the launch of Smudge Music. He brings us a wobbly blend of American influenced beats with an end result of a nice Hip-Hop/Dubstep smoothie, guaranteed to get the crowd moving. Here's what he had to say:
"People can catch me at Vagabondz and Bigger Than Barry line-ups over the next few months as well as Rippa DJ sets with co-producer Wancho at 'A Nation Of Shopkeepers' supporting Mumdance on 28th of January and 18th February with Darkstar. Keep an eye on the Facebook pages for added dates coming sooooon.
At the moment I am working on music for fashion projects and shows, arranging and performing bespoke DJ sets for designers. With the label launched we are signing distribution and preparing for our first wave of releases from each artist commencing end of Febuary with free digital EP available for download from the end of January. There'll also be more mixes coming soon from the label and solo production work."
