Groove Principles

Tuesday, 29 November 2011 at 23:57
Asil Alptekin is back on the mix tip with a lesson on four-to-the-floor groove.

Non-stop classy, melodic house jams are interwoven with more vogue, focussed minimal cuts to give the mix a massive scope of appeal - it is as fitting soundtracking island sunsets as hazy 7am after after-parties. And all is done with a proportioned sense of momentum; not tearaway and not coasting.

Highly recommended.

Quick Mix Fix

Quick and easy, 2 mixes to sink your teeth into. 1st up is YourDigitalFriend. Easily one of the best mixes I've heard this year and that's no understatement. Atmospheric, hard and rhythmic as hell. How techno should be! Just press download (down arrow on the right)

Next up is dubstep and grime DJ Stark. The mix is full of interesting, distorted and (crazy) sounds. Loud

Oscillate Wildly

Aite Sheffield heads its been a while. Thought I would resurface by informing you (in case you didn't already know) about Oscillate Wildly. Born and bred in Chelmsford, Essex its broadening its horizons and has chosen Sheffield as the next launch city. A night of forward thinking music who have previously booked artists such as Riva Starr, Rusko, Drop the Lime, Roska, Jack Beats & Tomb Crew. The list is huge and stretches wide across the electronic music spectrum.

Tonight they kick things off with the man in form atm James Blake. This guys stock is constantly on the rise and his latest offering Limit to your love is Zane Lowe's single of the week.

Oscillate Wildly kicks off at DQ from 10:30 and runs till 4. Entry is £3 before 11:30, £5 after. Drinks are cheap as chips and the music is good. Come down for a good time.

Here's some James Blake for ya:

after dabbling with some more techno / progressive sounds with Keatch (prime example here) it seems Felix has some electro left in him that needs output.

And here it is:
