Guestbook :: Cassius Select and Deadboy on Low Motion
April 17th 2014
Recently Cassius Select and Deadboy dropped in for guest mixes on Low Motion on Sunset, Tuesdays from 6pm. Their sets are well worth a (re)listen.
Sydney producer Cassius Select has just dropped a new Split 12” with Marcus Whale on The Finer Things and has another on the way through Plastic World with Tuff Sherm that has become a recent favourite on FBi.
Lots of brand new material in this mix, check it out…
- Sunset Guest Mix :: Cassius Select
Over the last 10 years South London’s Deadboy has released some of the finest club music to come out of the UK, a blend of 2-step rhythms and r’n’b sample flips .Through a string of releases on the Numbers label, Deadboy has always kept us guessing. He’s constantly developing his sound, recent material touches on warehouse techno and jungle re-imaginings.
With so much current house and garage resorting to the same formula – re-pitched r’n’b vocals here, a detuned chord there, a jungle break to add momentum – it’s uncanny how long ago Deadboy was adopting these tropes. He always seems to be one step beyond. As Julio Bashmore put it in a recent interview, “Deadboy really pioneered that chopped-up r’n’b vocal over nice chords thing. He absolutely smacked it, it’s never been done better than that.”
Listen back to the mix….
