WICKEDDDD!!! Awesome mix!
Grimey beats hovering around the 140 bpm mark, dashed with Nepali lok pop and 8-bit mentalism
Chris Wood from the goodie-packed Word the Cat blog recently dropped us a line about the splendid new mix he's concocted. It brought to mind Hanuman's and El Kano's playlists (two of our fave DJs here at Spannered) — a slew of moods from the grime and dubstep worlds, liberally sprinkled with flavas stretching from bassline house, bumpy ragga and old skool to 8-bit dub, Nepali lok pop, frosty minimalism and chiptune breakcore; he's even managed to slide in a few words of hillwalking wisdom from the late, great Alfred Wainwright.
Chris has kindly let us host the mix here in Spannered's radio archive. He asked it we'd link listeners up to the 8bitcollective site — 'the first completely open chiptune-related media repository and file sharing community'. The electronicMESS track is available there for use under a Creative Commons License, along with a stack of other great 8-bit jams. Go check it.
