This summer we’ve been planning a one-off party in aid of Action Mental Health alongside good friends ONØ (Conor) and Dan Ó. In the lead up we’re all putting together mixes to give a flavour of the night.
Ours sees a mixture of bassy and breaky techno with more euphoric dancefloor diesel as well. Listen to ONØ’s here.

The abbreviation of TST reads as Teste, food for thought.
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.
I first heard this mix over five years ago after being put onto Max Cooper by deadmau5 surprisingly enough and instantly I fell in love with the glitched up melodies. Every once in a while I give this mix a whirl and it never ceases to impress me. The last half hour especially is absolutely excellent.
For our second guest mix, we’ve got a very special hour of music from Belfast based producer Conor Doherty, or Just Doc. as he’s better known. He’s very kindly provided us with a sizzling hour of original and fresh unreleased productions that traverse the house, techno and progressive spectrums providing deep grooves, melancholic pianos and euphoric synths. At times the mixes flows in a beautiful fashion as tracks seamlessly blend and bleed into one another with an impeccable ease.
Expect big things from Conor in the future then. He recently had a deep, dubby groover released on Tronic Records which you can purchase here. Don’t forget to catch him over on his Facebook and Soundcloud accounts too.
