We’re pleased to announce our new category: the monthly DJ charts. First up is Lady Bee, who took the time amidst her very bzzzy European tour to send us her current top 5. Enjoy this hard-hitting, in-your-face selection after the jump
Insalata mista is Italian and means mixed salad. But we’re sure all you gourmets out there already knew that. It is the perfect example of how a mix doesn’t always have to be extravagant to be enjoyable. Salad and a few raw vegetables are all there really is to it. The insalata mista should be a standard dish on any decent menu, just as a mix of basic bass and a few additional raw sounds should be part of any DJs set. What happens, when you serve just that to an audience with taste, can be seen in this footage of various Drunken Masters live gigs of 2013. And yes: you can eat your insalata mista con pollo, too.
You know that amazing feeling of two seemingly uncombinable dishes forming the perfect epiphany in your mouth? ESKEI83 is known for achieving just that effect in your ears. Just listen to this sweet Jammin’ bootleg, and how it effortlessly opens up into Skrillex‘ and Damian Marleys Dub-Step-Reggae banger of 2012: Make It Bun Dem. How does the food related saying go? The apple never falls far from the tree. Maybe one Marley will always sound good on another Marley’s song, who knows. ESKEI83 surely makes it look like it is the case. Enjoy!
From the very start, the Drunken Masters showed a unique talent for making seemingly foreign genres blend as smoothly as whipped cream melts into hot chocolate. They have been living up to this reputation with a series of highly entertaining mixtapes, of which The Hour Of Power 1 & 2 are the latest. Here you have two chefs cooking up the hottest ish of 2013/2014, and serving it in style, which in the case of the Drunken Masters means: massy, sassy and always bassy.
