All Your Bass 3: Montreal Sunset Mix by Son Raw on Mixcloud

While Jeff supplicates the Gods of coffee and cannabis in a heroic attempt to track down Stoney Jackson, I’m slinking around Montreal’s Mutek festival as Resident Advisor’s newest Canadian correspondent.  For those who don’t know, Mutek is North-America’s premier experimental Electronic Music Festival specializing in arty-techno, audio-visual installations and what I can only assume is Minimal or MNML or whatever it is Germans listen to. Yeah, I don’t know how I ended up here either but in any case, I got a press pass and the balls to ask King Midas Sound the tough questions. Hopefully I can maintain my composure if I run into Ikonika as well. In any case, expect detailed reports both at RA and of course, around these parts.

As for now dear readers, your cups runneth over with mixes. But in the words of Glen Quagmire: room for one more? All Your Bass 3: Montreal Sunset Mix is my latest and some would say greatest. I’m once again sheepish in the face of self-promotion but I will say that I’m exceptionally proud of the fact that this one is 100% all the way live on a traditional 2 deck set up. An MP3 aided one yes, but UK vinyl is expensive. So what kind of tunes am I packin’ here? The latest and greatest from Martyn, James Blake, Guido, Ramadanman, Rusko, Nero and a whole bunch of other names you’ve heard kicked around these parts along with some newcomers who’re sure to impress. The set is intended to replicate the kind of material and styles I bust out at live shows, so expect plenty of progression from meditative material all the way into party-starting tear out tunes and stoned ragga for the comedown. This is the part where I’d joke about playing Lady Gaga songs at Bat Mitzvahs, but everyone knows I never compromise: your daughters better like hardcore grime.
