“It’s Boom Monk Ben with his first mix of the year and it’s a snap shot of what currently resides in his digital record box. Kicking off with Roach Gigz and the Bassbin Twins and hitting double time with Seiji and Hint. The tempo stays high and energy bubbling with big 2011 tracks from Dark Sky, Blawan, Mosca and the excellent Mia Dora remix for Roots Manuva, before ending in more soulful notes from Womack & Womack and HaHaHa & Raksha.
We start with Parker in hour 2 with his ‘Behind the bookcase’ mix. Bristol’s very own beat n’ bass head delivers music from Tipper, SPY and Julio Bashmore, alongside his own remixes of Bjork and Kate Bush. There’s also an exclusive play of Parker’s first single ‘Nowhere to hide’ on his own label Monkey Butler out next month. It’s all cut and fused together with the finesse and quirky soundbites we’ve become accustomed to.
We close the show with Grahmzilla, the Toronto based producer behind various projects including Thunderheist on Big Dada, Bassanovva and Nautiluss on Hemlock Records. Music on offer includes Purity Ring, Zomby, Lunice and Rustie, closing with Araabmusik and Drake.”
