FACT mix 306 is by West Norwood Cassette Library.
The South London resident has been recording music since the mid-‘90s, under various guises, but it’s in the last two years that he’s really come into his own, releasing some of the most distinctive UK house music around; warm and rough (by West Norwood’s own admission, barely any of the equipment in his studio works properly at this point), and constantly looking to the skip of mid-’90s garage and the bounce of classic hip-hop for inspiration.
His FACT mix is in a similar vein to West Norwood’s productions: groove is everything here, with not one track slowing down the overall flow, and it’s recorded off vinyl and acetate (yes, he still cuts dubplates) with a healthy touch of looseness to it. Unreleased material from West Norwood’s own label features, as well as forthcoming cuts by Blawan, Midland, Pariah, Brackles and more.
