After announcing the launch of new label, 2Sox, earlier this year, Debukas is preparing for the release of his latest EP ‘Transparent Living’. The four-tracker which arrives next week has been a mainstay on our playlists over the last few months, boasting a handful of deep-grooving cuts which have also found favour with the likes of Jasper James. To accompany the EP’s release, Debukas has contributed the first mix in a new series entitled ‘Down The Stairs’ which came about after discovering a hidden room in label mate, Aldo’s flat.
Debukas takes up the story (lifted from 2Sox tumblr):
“Just over a year ago, we couldn’t find the boiler in Aldo’s new flat. Whilst searching, we found and opened a hatch under a loose piece of carpet in the box room. We went Down The Stairs. We found a venue. Ok, a small basement, but it’s our venue. The place was a riot but after a year of rather slow progress, it’s hospitable.
We recently had a 2Sox staff night out, drank some Tennents Lager and spun some vinyl. Debukas manned the decks for a while and we’re bringing you the evidence. No digital set up in sight, he’s delved deep for a mix of old and new. Expect to hear the likes of Titonton Duvante & Fabrice Lig, Analogue Fingerprints, Voltaic, Gnork and The Nuclear Family amongst others. It’s rough round the edges, as we were the following day.
Over the coming months we’ll be inviting some friends to play Down The Stairs, bringing you the recordings. You might even get to see the party in action online, in a genuine boiler room. However, it was only right that we started the series with a recording of Debukas from the staff party. Do enjoy.”
