DUMMY just released this terrific mixtape which I can’t stop listening to. If you don’t know about DUMMY all you have to do is like them on Facebook and they’ll keep you up-to-date with la creme-de-la-creme of all things music. Their latest mix (their 85th to be precise) is in conjunction with Field Day happening today in London (the sold-out, 20,000-capacity city-centre one-day festival will run from midday to 10.30 in the evening and has a world-class lineup). The following is a breakdown of their Field Day mix:
JJ’s cover/homage to Dr. Dre starts off the mix as a choice cut from the Bloggers and Lanzarote crew that curated the very stage this mix is dedicated to. We then touch upon some of this past year’s most exciting artists: from Oneohtrix Point Never’s otherworldly take on new age music for the new era to Actress’ dark and atmospheric post-dubstep-almost-techno. Ducktails keep things well vibey, contrary to the title of their track, with guitars and sunny vocals whilst Darkstar remind us to still be a bit moody, but in a shuffling groovy sort of way. SBTRKT gives us the sexiness and our DJs offer up some old choice house cuts from the likes of Dee Dee Brave, whose piano sample is also used on Flora Cruz’s hopeful sun anthem Let The Sun Shine Out … definitely on repeat until Saturday. Lastly Anika will either make you reach out and hold onto your lover, or rue the day the treacherous wrong’un that shredded your heart first played this for you. Download and slam this mix, ASAP.
