This mix explores the idea of slow/fast which I've been fascinated by in the last year. It was originally put together and recorded - with a slightly different tracklist - for the Tempo Clash party I played at in September but then a lot of the tunes weren't out yet so I held onto it and thought it'd be the perfect mix for ASG and Jay, seeing as how he's always pushing that new shit. I guess the idea for slow/fast came up with the explosion of interest around juke/footwork, the return of jungle in many people's sets/interest (thanks to juke/footwork partly) and a lot of the new music coming out which floats between 75 and 85 bpm and works at double or half time. All of a sudden it's never been easier to do mixes that fluctuate in speed, from hyperactive to low-slung, and once you throw in a lot of the beat stuff from the last few years you've got something really interesting I think. So this mix is an exploration of that within a club context but it also works nicely in the headphones, llow the laptop speakers though you need some bass. If you enjoy what you hear check out the artists featured, most of them are doing truly interesting stuff today that's deserving of your attention. Much love.
