Whilst the previous mix from Outboxx is still on heavy rotation it has had to be juggled with this next one from the up-and-coming Swedish badman Bleak. We like to switch things up and that's exactly what's on the agenda here. Prepare yourself for another quality piece of aural amusement.
Late Night - Bleak [unreleased]
Bleak's productions so far have gained praise from up and down the spectrum. Most notably DJ Deep whose Deeply Rooted House label has played a large part in recognising the talent. DRH aims to release "true to it's roots" house and techno which is exactly why two out four of this man's EPs have been given the boss' approval. He sits alongside artists such as Kerri Chandler, DJ Gregory and Ben Klock to name a few.
Teaser - Bleak [unreleased]
Our attention was first drawn when we clocked the sturdy, bumping 'Ekko' towards the end of last year. Since then we've been eagerly awaiting some more material whilst in the process of rinsing the first two EPs which were out on Sudden Drop. Suddenly 6 month wait was rewarded and two releases drop in quick succession. First came an effort on Traut Muzik featuring a beefy, if a little simple, Skudge remix - then the Disfunktion EP, a nails 4 track outing which you can currently pick up on repress at Juno.
Unknown - Bleak [unreleased]
We asked what else is lined up and here's the answer...
"Next releases will be on DRH again and Skudge, remixes for Markus Suckut's label SCKT, Pfirter, Deep Moves and Cinematic Records for the moment. A few releases that are not really confirmed yet so I can´t tell them for now"
This mix gets another very high rating from us. Ups and downs, melodies, rawness, it's all there. Best listened to at night in some decent headphones on a train/tube/coach/car. Somewhere where you can watch streetlights playing in your retinae.
