Next up on the FMB Mixtape Series is a mix from Dublin native Dart. As usual, we fired some questions over to find out a bit about the selection & what he’s been up to recently…
I bought my first car recently and have dedicated a lot of my time to learning how to drive. While having all this time during lockdown I thought I’d put it to use, as well as writing lots of new music. It’s been a breath of fresh air making music with no intent!
I don’t have a DJ set up at home, just a turntable for sampling, so I had to record in a friends house. I would spend most of my time writing music mid-week at home and DJing in clubs on the weekends before the pandemic, so there was no need for a home set up. Although now I have an urge to get some CDJs lol.
Recently I’ve been on a huge 90s trance/house buzz. I went through my old vinyl one night out of boredom and fell in love all over again. Keeping that energy, I wanted to make this mix feel like the sound of a late night journey to an afterparty.
Over the past year I’ve built up a good collection of new material, so maybe there’s enough to put together a nice body of music one day, who knows? :)
