3 For 3 B2B W/ DJ NoFace & Floyd
We get sent a lot of mixes, and while the majority are a joy to listen to, you often wonder how many have been simply sequenced in Ableton to run smoothly without ever showing the cracks. Given that every over-enthusiastic kid with a laptop and a copy of Traktor is a DJ now means that setting yourself apart can often take you back to basics or trying something entirely new. That’s why it was so refreshing to hear Electrikal’s Floyd and Mixed Bizness resident NoFace going in back to back for this Sub Thursday promo mix.
Recorded live on two decks and a mixer, ‘3 For 3’ strips back the technology and simply lets the music do the talking. Beginning with the delicate chords of Maribou State before melting into Jamie XX’s recent Number’s smash ‘Far Nearer’, you are taken on a definitive journey through the sound of modern UK Bass. Garage shuffle, menacing Dubstep and skank-ready Grime all come together to create a truly diverse experience. Knowing that it was recorded live in the heat of the moment makes it even sweeter – aspiring DJs take note.
You can catch Floyd and NoFace at Sub Thursday this week at the Sub Club where you can expect even more back to back madness. In the meantime check out the mix below!
