It’s b+m’s Raymond alongside his creative compadre Adam as Pruca on the mix duties here. The pair met in Glasgow a while back and have been DJing together since, keep an eye for future club nights from the fellas. Despite now being more spread out across space and time, the two linked up to lay down this mix
For best results turn down the lights and draw the curtains. An hour of moody basslines, jittery rhythms and melodies wrought with bittersweet emotion.
On guest mix duties for the tenth instalment in our mix series is Bristol based producer/DJ Blezard. Originally hailing from Lancaster and now studying music production down in Bristol, he’s really honed in on a deep, dubby and minimal sound of house music championed by the likes of the FUSE London crew. This mix gives a taster of the sort of stuff to expect from Blezard’s future productions and is a shining example of the type of sound mentioned above. It’s 45 minutes filled with a rolling, dubbed out house sound perfectly suited for getting a party in gear.
I had the pleasure of spending my first year at uni with this guy, and it’s great to finally have him on the blog. Expect big things from him in the future too, and no doubt he’ll be featured on here again soon.
Deep house is a genre that comes under much scrutiny from fans of dance music due to the bastardisation of the genre over the years. Especially in the past 3/4 years, many mainstream dance DJs have been throwing out tracks they believe to be ‘deep house’ and it’s given the genre something of a bad name due to being labelled as something completely different to what it is.
Low Life is a beautiful deep/dub house cut from Drain Pipe. A proper looped-out after hours groover, this is one of those tracks to easily get lost in. Close your eyes and ride the wave.
