I’m not really sure what you call this kind of stuff. It’s garage and house based, but isn’t tilted at the dance floor in that typical sloggy style.
It’s a little too up to be ambient, but it’s got that deep, laid back vibe to it. There’s quite a few vocals in there, but some of these are pure instrumental grooves.
What ever you call it, I’m loving this stuff at the moment. Music that uplifts and makes you smile and dance about the house.
Big ups to Dusky (who I’m a bit late picking up on) and Martyn who LPs feature pretty heavily, and to Andrew Bayer who’s Anjunadeep label is well worth checking out if you’re feeling this vibe.
This is the perfect Summer mix for you lucky buggers in the northern hemisphere who aren’t freezing like I am at the bottom of the planet.
Get out side and play it loud.

You got to love it when a set rolls out smooth as silk, and is totally effortless. This was one of those, I just put on the first track and drifted into mix mode only to wake up an hour or so later with this tidy little number.
Once again I’ve given it a good testing in Low Profile mobile and it bumps along nicely. Again leaning toward four four territory rather than broken beats. This is totally unintentional, it’s just the house/techno side of things seem to be far stronger than the broken beats at the moment.
I’m sure the breaks will make a come back (they always do) but until then try this out for size.
