Next up on the mixtape series we have Dutch supremo De Sluwe Vos. We have been big fans of his since he first popped up on the radar with the huge OG Anthem back in 2013 and have been lucky enough to catch his energetic live set a few times since. We Caught up with him ahead of this mix to see what he is up to now and next…
“I’ve been living in my studio and playing around mainly. Working with 10 different (and my favorite) artists for my debut album ‘Kontra’ got me a little isolated from the world around me. Before the long studio sessions in Amsterdam started, I went to a cottage alone to finish drafts for this album. I’m really excited about the whole project as it involves a live tour as well. That basically means we have to rehearse with percussionists, a guitar player, different singers, rappers, vj’s, engineers on location. We’re even shooting my second singles’ video clip at the moment now. But working on new material, mixing the album and touring all at the same time can result in ruff times. But hey, I’m living my own dream at the moment! And it never felt like work to me!
After eating a lot of chicken I recorded the mix in my studio.I wanted to show the different sides of dance/electronic music that I dig at the moment and also wanted to give you guys a little preview of some of the album tracks.”
What are you up to next?
“I recently played London (Eastsunrise) and it’s a delight to play London again in April at Plan B. Also looking forward to Outbreak Festival during bank holiday (Derby, Leicestershire, Castle Donington) and more than 30 festivals are confirmed. Proud to say I’m closing at Awakenings Festival (NL), DGTL (NL) and love to be part of Pollerwiesen (DE) this summer. ”
