Mix the Belt Episode 017: Hostile – Guest Mix

Mix the Belt Episode 017 Cover Art


Our very own Bite the Belt reprobate and resident Lemon DJ, Hostile, is up for the Mix the Belt challenge this week and he’s bringing absolute fire.

Fresh Astrophonica noise from modern junglist Sully, forthcoming pieces of delight from Cosmic Bridge and a plethora of chart topping UTR tracks from every dark corner of the circuit. Too often are we in search of the next best sound on the scene, mixes packed exclusively with only the very latest releases. Whereas here we find a breath of fresh air that sheds thundering ushers of respect to incredible pieces that belong firmly outside of the ‘crate diggers’ vaults – in a digital decade where music is painfully throwaway it’s a delight to see someone celebrating the very best of what dnb has to offer without any regard for release date.

Pull-ups from the past 3 years of Om Unit, Machinedrum, Ivy Lab, Break & Moresounds with resounding nods to an even further (though I cringe when I use the word) past: Alix Perez’s Contradictions, the True Romance VIP and two absolute diamond tracks from someone who wasn’t always about making Gold Dust – original Bad Company member DJ Fresh dropping Heavyweight and The Gatekeeper back in ’09 and 2011, almost like a final sign-off before the commercial storm – and I really appreciate the nod of respect here by including them in the mix.

As vibrant as the punch it packs; fidgety, jungly, rolling with breaks and here for your free listening pleasure.
