I.D. - Exclusive September Promo Mix


I.D.I just got sent this mix this morning from Manchester-based DJ I.D. (Earwax, Enchufada, Heavy Artillery) and I’ve been rinsing it all day.  It’s exclusive to the site for the time being and heading to more places soon.  I.D.’s releases recently (especially the Earwax one) have been stellar, take note.

Back to the mix - it’s got forthcoming tunes from Gemmy, TRG, DJ Madd, Toasty, and more.  What REALLY got me was the Baobinga & I.D. remix of the kuduro artist DJ Znobia out on the Portuguese label Enchufada which broke the kuduro legends Buraka Som Sistema.  I am such a fan of kuduro it’s irrational, here’s a mix or two to check out the style.  It’s basically Angolan music fused with Portuguese urban rhythms and it’s one of the most danceable genres of music that exists.  This mix from I.D. has a section in the middle that’s heavily influenced by kuduro that starts with the DJ Znobia remix and is the highlight of the mix for me.  Big respect on this sound, I really need to hear more.

The mix starts with futuristic off-key or wonky sounds, moves into some deeper vibes with a touch of wobble, the kuduro segment, and maintains intensity to the end.  Solid mixing, solid selections, put it on your mp3 player now.

San Franciscans need to check track 3 in this mix titled “Rainbow Road” by Gemmy and then come see him along with Mary Anne Hobbs, Akira Kiteshi, and loads more tomorrow night.
