Playing tracks by
Three Chairs, Deadboy, Theo Parrish, Martyn, Julio Bashmore and more.
Our first FACT mix of the new year comes from Deadboy, one of our favourite artists to emerge from London’s blossoming house and garage underground and the man behind last year’s stunning ‘U Cheated’ single – a top thirty entry on our Top 100 Tracks of 2009.
Featuring Theo Parrish, Scott Garcia, Julio Bashmore, Martyn and plenty of Deadboy’s own material, it’s a mix that perfectly reflects the blurred crossroads between house, garage, R’n'B and dubstep that the likes of Mosca, Bok Bok, Joy Orbison and more are currently inhibiting, with a sense of longing that runs through the mix – whether that’s for lovers past or the halcyon days of 2step. Bassline house star Burgaboy has rarely sounded as sad as he does on this mix. Interview at http://www.factmag.com/2010/01/04/fact-mix-112-deadboy/2/
