Listen: High Contrast – Summer 2015 mix

high contrast

It feels like it’s been forever since we last enjoyed a High Contrast studio mix. Two years ago to be precise (for Plastician’s Rinse show in case you’re wondering)

Anyway, last night he marked the return of forever (not sorry) with a slick, savvy and – at points – pretty savage blend to highlight his appearances at a whole slew of European festivals including Glastonbury, Creamfields, Liquicity, Let It Roll and Electric Daisy Carnival UK.

With the selection fine-tuned for festivals, it’s a cool blend of emotional hand wavers, rushy synths, dreamy vocals, chop-walloping amens and occasional bassline grit. No surprises with that type of remit, then, that there’s a fair few UKF faves in the mix… And at least one exclusive we can spot: Camo & Krooked’s remix of High Contrast, Marcus Intalex and ST File’s 2002 classic 3am. Nice.
