squeaky bleeps and whatnot

bendubs

just recently i finished a sort of mix battle thing with a young lad from london by the name of ben white. you know, mix some tracks together, send them to him, he’ll mix on a few afterwards and so forth. we did one in june, and then another last month. well really it was september but i only finished it last week. my bad. i thought it turned out pretty well. i was really taken aback by how fresh his tracks were – apart from one or two i had never heard of most of the artists he used, let alone the tracks themselves. he’s also one of the guys behind the squeaky bleeps blog – so he knows his stuff.

a couple of months ago he had a grimey dubstep remix of asher roth’s risible i love college featured on the mad decent blog, and his productions have only come on since then. waves is a chilled out garage track in the old mj cole vein, and while i don’t really think there’s any point in remixing pon de floor (and the winner of the mad decent comp there was pretty dreadful) ben’s effort takes it into a whole new territory – the aforementioned old school garage – and gives it a new lease of life. he’s also put together a mix which is bursting with vibrant energy – everything i listen to at the moment is good, but this is just explosive.
