Dub bass, heavy electronic rhythms, minimalist bleep melodies and far-sighted post-industrial futurism: a deep dive into one of Britain's most forward-thinking and influential musical movements of the late '80s and early '90s, bleep and bass. Featuring a mix of little-known cuts, stone cold classics and unheard new edits, Join The Future: Mix 1 contains lesser celebrated tracks and remixes from many of the original scene's Yorkshire pioneers and unheralded heroes, as well as those on a similar wavelength elsewhere in the UK and beyond.
This is the first mix in a series tied-in to the Join The Future project, which documents a fertile period in UK dance music while questioning the often-repeated myths and lazy media narrative. The mix was recorded in August 2018 and was one of FACT's "Mixes of the Month" in September 2018.
