Wilki’s ‘Into The Deep’ mix

Through one of the music forums I frequent I came across this gem from Wilki, and who better than he to introduce his mix:

This mix pretty much sums up what I have been listening to in the electronic music world featuring some incredibly talented producers. Its deep, thought provoking, cerebral electronic music that skips from one genre to another. The first few tunes are dubby and bass driven which will work best on the very finest sound system you can play them on. I could have filled out the whole mix with tunes like these such is the continual overwhelming quality of releases that labels such as Hotflush, Hessle Audio, Hyperdub et al are releasing.

It’s definitely an exciting time for fresh, innovative dance music which is replacing the generic run of the mill dance floor fodder. Anyway, I decided to pick things up with the middle section of the mix which features some half time D+B which is a sound that I am definitely feeling right now. Dancefloor D+B this is definitely not. It’s, superbly produced, intelligent and detailed drum & bass that hooks you into a groove. The drum programming on the Rockwell tune is just insanely good. Definitely a producer to watch out for. The mix moves back into dubby stuff and an ambient tune from Shed which basically sounds like an old Aphex tune. The mix finishes on some lovely dub techno and a proper old classic rmx of Model 500 by Dave Angel which is ageing like a fine wine. It sounds dated, but still fits into most mixes nicely. The last tune is a from a young Scottish producer called Wireman. On first listen it will probably scare the pants off of you as it is incredibly dark, eerie and industrial. However, stick with it and wait for the chords to drop. It then all makes sense. As does the rest of the mix I hope. Enjoy!
