Well, we thought it would only be fair and right to mix it up a bit during the course of this here ‘mix’ series (see what I did?), so here for you all is a fine taste of hip hop from French sibling trio DSL. Why? Simply because we can.
Kicking off with an absolute classic funk cut from Maceo and the Macks, the mix goes on to explore all things beatified, from urban crunky flavours to synth-heavy electro hop, with plenty of electro-tinged goodness along the way. Highlights include the wonderfully wonky coke-hop of N.E.R.D, some twisted hi-NRG shenanigans from Armand Van Helden and some solid gold brilliance from Maceo and the Macks. Sorry, had to mention it twice what with it being so darn good.
The mix finishes off with that broken disco-house (courtesy of DJ Edjotronic) that only French acts can truly pull off. Who knows why, but who cares – it works superbly.
Signed to French electronic label Ed Banger Records, owned by none other than Busy P, DSL are labelmates to the likes of Mr Oizo, DJ Mehdi and Justice, which should give you an idea of the fine things to expect from them and their marvellous mix for us.
