Next up the mix we got some dark slo-mo business from the extended Throne of Blood family, Remain. I think we can safely say the Frenchmen/women are leading the way with this sound, dark analog basslines, new wave industrial/italo influence with a definite techno undertones. Pioneered by the likes of blog fav Ivan Smagghe, it really has carved its own niche sound and following. Last year saw him join the team with a great remix of, the 50% Parisian, Populette on Lazers are Forever. You can catch him next month with the bossman James Friedman playing before Moodymann at Social Club Paris. A few words from the man himself…
“This mix has been recorded in live conditions during the last “MEANT night” at Showcase club in Paris a few weeks ago, where I opened the night before my guests : Rework and Magda. This club gets packed really early, which allows the warm-ups to evolve very fastly from slow-mo house & techno to more heavy records! This mix includes a few exclusives such as the next MEANT recs and Remain releases (out in the forthcoming months)…” enjoy!
