Exclusive Mix :: Floria for The Mixing Bowl [[April Mix]]
April 11th 2014
Much like his production, this mix sees Floria blending techno’s raw aggression with the warmth of RnB.
After the absolute thumper of a mix that Floria put together for us in March, his return in April is a more gentle and seductive affair. With the addition of the above photo, the whole situation is just begging for some saucy adjectives. You will not be disappointed.
Starting off with a tribute to the late Frankie Knuckles, godfather of house music, Floria’s mix keeps the balance between soulful and jacking that the big man would surely have approved of. Pearson Sound gives way to Makam and Boston Bun melts into Tinashe, all before some soul spillage from Canada’s most emotionally vulnerable rapper.
Floria’s got one more mix in him before he finishes up his moist (one adjective too many?) autumn residency on The Mixing Bowl. It’s due the first week of May, but there’ll be plenty more tunes from his co-residents in the meantime, namely Tink, Terace and Platform 19, spinning trap, bassline house, and garage respectively.
