FMB MIXTAPE 45 | BRAME & HAMO

brame&hamo

Irish boys currently residing in Berlin: Brame & Hamo have just been announced for the Boiler Room at AVA Festival, ahead of that they have turned in a mix for our podcast series. Check the AVA Festival Boiler Room Line up here and get your tickets here.  As usual we fired some questions over to them:

“Lots of gigs recently, we played in Colombia a couple of weeks ago. That was nuts, Tiarnan got really sick though after eating a sketchy burger. that put studio time on hold for a while haha.

We recorded it in Hamo’s bedroom on two technics and some borrowed Cdj’s (for the youtube rips).

We wanted to share some of the records that we listen to at home as well as some records that we have been playing out recently. Lots of new stuff from friends too.

At the minute we are working on our album, hopefully that should come out later this year. Also we are doing Boiler room at AVA Festival in Belfast in June, cant wait for that!”

FMB MIXTAPE 44 | DAVE HARVEY

dave harvey

Dave Harvey is a bit of a behind the scenes don.  Outside of heading up Futureboogie, he programs Love Saves The Day in Bristol, Glastonbury Wow Stage (expect an exciting announcement in the coming weeks) and having been a central part of Garden Festival in Croatia he’s now set up Love International , where lots of our favourites will be spinning this summer. We play the hand over Barbarella’s party on Wednesday 1st July tickets for that specific party here.

There are still some festival tickets available here and you can see the whole line up here.

We caught up with him to hear what he’s been up to:

“Just got back from a site visit to the Garden Tisno, the site of Love International  -working out the new Olive Grove stage set up and how we get a bigger rig into the woods for the sunrise sessions!

The mix was recorded at home, with a single skinner and some beer –  on my E&S 400 – can I still say I’ve got a rotary or is that not the done thing nowadays, I can’t keep up.

It’s a Love International inspired mix so I had lots of ideas about what to do – something clever and Balearic/Adriatic, something with all the artists playing – lots of ideas – but ended up being a load of tunes I am playing at the moment with a few oldies chucked in for good measure. It’s a bit loose at points but then I am I guess.”

Up next…

“Alongside a whole host of releases for Futureboogie, we are ramping up for all the summer madness – Love Saves The Day, The new look Wow at Glastonbury, Love International of course, and putting together a new and very  exciting event in Bristol in late summer, watch this space as that one is gonna be interesting.”

FMB MIXTAPE 43 | SHINRA

shinra

Shinra came onto our radar last year with his Ball & Chain Ep. Excellent well rounded release and we cant wait to hear what he has got coming up next. As usual we got in touch and fired some questions.

“Late last year I was proud to release a 12” EP on Null+Void recordings, which got a great reception. It caught the attention of some fantastic DJs and producers, including Bicep – I’ve been really inspired by the feedback it got. I’ve also had a track out on InFine Music and just had a remix released for Chevron on Balkan Recordings which has gone down well.

The mix was recorded at my studio in North London using Ableton Live, pretty standard setup.

The main themes of the mix are braindance, acid, and electro – the kind of music I love to listen to and produce. I wanted a mix that starts off fairly laidback and melodic, which then moves through the gears to some faster paced dancefloor electro (the kind I’d play in a club DJ set). Lots of analogue wonky synths and snappy drums. I’ve finished off the mix with a track from Dwaalicht (aka Wisp) off his recent EP on Analogical Force – it’s my favourite release of the last few months.”

Up next…

“I’m putting the finishing touches to an EP of braindance/acid for a really great label which got in touch a couple of months ago. I haven’t submitted it yet so it’s not ready to announce, but I’m excited about it. After that I’m intending to work on a potential follow-up release for Null+Void. I’ll probably squeeze a couple of remixes in too. Lots to look forward to!”

FMB MIXTAPE 42 | RON BACARDI

Ron bacardi

Ron Bacardi (aka Ben Sims) came and saved the day, filling in for Omar Souleyman at our XOYO residency last Summer. It was a slamming set so we were excited for him to grace our podcast series. As usual we hit him up to find out what has been going on.

“Trying to get my head down in the studio, finish off some solo and collaborative projects plus a few remixes that should be out soonish.
Also, a nice mix of gigs lately, lots of new spots alongside old faves plus fun b2b sessions with Truncate and ROD. My first Ron Bacardi set of the year @ Claydrum in Holland went really well too, so definitely fired up for more.

The mix was recorded at my East London studio in February on 3 CDJ2000’s and a Pioneer 900 mixer.

It’s a mix of new and old, rough-edged raw house and mutant disco with some unreleased cuts and a few surprises.
It was done while digging out beats for my RB set in Maastricht so it’s essentially a one-take practice set and pretty much sums up what the project is about musically. Obviously there’s links to my techno sets (I was never going to be playing micro house) but it’s definitely got its own vibe going on and I’m about as pleased with it as a harsh self critic can be with one of his own mixes ;-)”

Up next..

“There’s quite a few Ron Bacardi sets coming up including some festival action and one at Concrete in Paris plus Kabuki returns to Dance Tunnel in Dalston with Rolando and me going b2b all night.
Machine celebrates its 5th year with a bunch of nice events as well as hosting an area at my favourite UK fest, the eclectic and pint sized, super friendly Field Manoeuvres.
My remixes for Shinedoe, Cassy and Luke Slater are all due out this half of the year, as is a new Ron Bacardi Hardgroove release. Plus, there’s some under the radar, labour of love projects like a hip hop mash up 7″ and some deep digging disco edits.”
