Upon sending me this, Charlottetown DJ SirReal said he didn’t know if “I was into mixes.” That’s actually a valid line of inquiry – there’s only so many hours in the day and when DJs make up half your social network, you’ve got to pick your battles. You may be into the same stuff as I am but that’s sort of the problem: if I’ve already got the tunes, it’s unlikely that I can afford to spare an hour of listening time. On the other hand, I occasionally get sent absolutely random material, which while occasionally enlightening, rarely gets my heart pumping: the odds that I’ll learn how to Dougie much less Vogue, are slim.

So the cop-out answer is that I’m  into SOME mixes – ideally those which achieve the quasi-zen feat of highlighting material that I haven’t yet heard but instantly wish I’d gotten a hold of first. And what do you know? This fits the bill perfectly. The truth is I’m sort of insanely jealous of this selection: apart from a few anthems from Starkey, Doshy and Royal-T, this is all new to me but it all feels like stuff I SHOULD know. That means fast paced, rhythmically complex instrumental Grime, Coki-style bassline madness and the occasional high-speed rap vocal. So well done SirReal, this is EXACTLY how you get me to post a mix to this site…but you know I’m going straight to Juno to cop some of these, right?
