To kick off the new year, here’s a mix to soothe the soul.
Coming from mysterious producer Grant – whose album The Acrobat last year on The Lauren Bacall imprint was a low-key favorite over here – the blend of deep house, abstract electronics and jazz fusion (honestly) should be all you need to wrestle yourself back to normality after the NYE excess. Fans of Moodymann or Galcher Lustwerk should take note immediately.
Grant assures us that the mix was produced in the studio in December after an period of extreme creativity. Desperate to avoid the perfection of modern mixing and get back to the “super naive, exciting feeling” when you first start mixing, Grant has put together a very personal selection of favorites. There’s no tracklist, but we can tell you there’s a little DJ Sprinkles, Floating Points and Nuyorican Soul among other things. Diggers: it’s time to get hunting.
