Mix Roundup: Zed’s Dead, Circus Records, Revolvr, Dynamik, Headshotboyz

Zeds Dead live on BBC

The insane duo from Toronto has done it again – this 20 minute mix showcases a newer, and very much electro, sound for them. They still bring some roughneck bass towards the end, but more than half these tracks have some ravey vocals – normally that’s a dealbreaker for me,  but they pull it off.

Circus Records Winter Mixtape

You’re gonna be hearing these bangers all year, may as well get to know them now. Superbad, in particular, makes me really, really happy – fuckin great to hear what Flux Pavillion can do with live drums and real guitars. These guys are puttin the fun(k) back in dubstep.

Revolvr – The Chamber Mix Show

Straight electro fire. I don’t know much about Revolvr except that he sent me a track on soundcloud and got an instant follow. And ever since then, it’s one burner after another from this dude. This mix is everything I love about electro – chunky synth lines, big fat fucking kicks, vocals that know their place in the mix and aren’t cheesy, and maximum jackage.

From the Old School to the Newschool Mix by Dynamik

Found this mix on the ENK blog, where Wompblog fav flatline also hangs his hat. A really nice garage history lesson. It’s not a genre I’m super familiar with, so maybe this will seem facile to the heads, I dunno, but I enjoyed it from start to finish. This mix does a great job of joining the dots between a sound many people think of as “90s”, but is responsible for a lot of what’s awesome about bass music these days .

The Hungarian Beat Mix by headshotboyz

A whole fuck ton of awesome spacey futurist beats from producers you’ve never heard of, most of whom come from the mean streets of Budapest. Brainfeeder fans, apply within. I had the opportunity to kick it in Budapest a few weeks this summer before Outlook, and since returning I’ve been consistently impressed by the quality output of the beat scene over there. Fine Cut Bodies, iamyank, and now headshotboys are a few of my favorite dj/producers from that city, and I can’t wait to go back.
