Bonus: This weekend Europe enjoys an extra hour as the clocks rewind an hour and set the winter’s temporal template.
Sure, it officially marks the end of any decent weather for the next six months but it has major benefits… Especially if you’re in a club at 2am and suddenly find another hour in which to party.
Whether you plan on investing that hour in the club, in bed or anywhere else, a free hour is a free hour. And we’ve selected five awesome ways to soundtrack that hour if you don’t find yourself knee deep in the dance on Saturday night.
Five killer mixes – each one an hour, or near-about… We’re not going to fuss over mere minutes here – between them they cover every single genre, flavour and style we love at UKF. D&B, dubstep, deep bass, house, electro, trap, beats, classics and more. In fact don’t wait for the extra hour to arrive tomorrow, check them all out now – they’re all excellent for their own unique and sonically satisfying reasons.
US crew: We’ll be reminding you of this next weekend when your clocks rewind, too!
UKF Podcast #59: Koven
Hey, we had to include one of our many great podcasts in this round-up! Koven have flipped the switch a bit on this series addition as Katie reps the broadcaster delivery vibes while Max digs deep with utter classics such as Rusko’s Jahova, Massive Attack’s Unfinished Sympathy and Liquid’s Sweet Harmony. Old school!
Jaguar Skills: 60 Minutes Of Ram
Oh gosh! This is the best label retrospective ever. Any Ram retrospective is going to be epic – the label has over 20 years of releases in its ever-expanding vaults – but the fact it’s mixed by one of the most technically adept and creatively spirited turntablists of our time ensures the label’s story is told with proper character and humour. Immense!
What So Not: Flying To Europe Mix
Genre smeltation of the highest order, Flume & Emoh’s What So Not project has already established a matchless pedigree for line-blurring, but this selection adventure is another level. All shades and dynamics flow fluidly, taking in the works of acts as disparate as Slum Village and Caribou along the way. If only the word journey wasn’t so cliché; we’d probably use it to describe this…
Stanton Warriors: Basement Beats Mixtape Volume 2
Slick, sexy and subbed out, UK bass duo Stanton Warriors explore the deeper quarters of their repertoire with this stunning Basement Beats mix. Littered with their own edits and reversions, the whole blend rumbles with a slick consistency that smacks with attention to detail and can be hard to find in a free mix. File under: Unique.
Zeros: Inspirations Mix
What a way to introduce yourself! No one knew who Zeros was until a few months back. Just weeks prior to his album release he unleashed this incredible mix that explained exactly what he’s all about and what beats push his buttons. Complete with cuts from artists as disparate as deadmau5 and Royksopp, Ferry Corsten and Cassius this really is phenomenal.
