Final Mixes, Mixes

Guest Mix: Lerosa

leeoo

And so we move on to the next of our Final mixes. Lerosa has been a good friend and mix contributor for us here since the early days. In fact the first time I ever met him was to do this interview around 5 years ago (!). He’s not only given us mixes but also a free track (check the interview) and both myself and Tom have since gone on to release his music. So it goes without saying that he would pop up again on this page before we closed it.

He’s provided us with a party mix of (mainly) Italo, which can be viewed as a follow up to this mix for Six Axle, and I think the connection is quite fitting. One of the reasons we are shutting down ISM is that we simply don’t have the hunger to be constantly posting week in/week out any more. We still have the hunger for the music but the upkeep of the blog is something we just don’t focus our energies on anymore. The Six Axle guys are constant, informative and do have that hunger and is a site I can’t recommend enough if you enjoyed what we did here.

Anyways, huge thanks to Lerosa for this mix and all the rest he’s done for us over the years.

Using sounds and rhythmic structures that are influenced by Hi-NRG history, he twists and upends the genre to great success with productions that I’m always impressed by. I…

Kan You Kick It?

I first heard KanKick on the classic DJ Babu (Beat Junkies, Dilated Peoples) “Comprehension” mixtape (dubbed Maxell cassette, photocopied j-card and handwritten labels.) After laying down one of the hardest sessions of beatjuggling and cutting ever documented, the turntablist Babu graciously opened up the full B-side for his LA underground friends to get on with…
