Trust In Bass Podcast 20 - Gyu

Beautiful Crissy – Energised mix


End-of-summer mix of some of the best electronica and deep house this summer. Tigerskin, Killer Klowns, Pezzner and more. Artwork and title inspired by an underwater excursion to a kettle pond on Cape Cod, where the water is warm under the canopy of lilipads and carnivorous plants, and mercury content from coal-fired powerplants upwind makes the water too toxic to drink. Purity of new energy mixed with the aftermath of ours. peace~

Track list:
H&S (France), Superslut – On Deadly Ground
Sav Manganaro – Way To The Funk
Stojche – Dilligent
Tigerskin – Searching
Steve Froggatt – Shoulder Droppin
Pezzner, Gryffyn – Try It Again feat. Gryffyn
Killer Klownz – ICL
Ketel Juan – I Got
Dmitry Sereda – Jazz For Helen
Ro Madrid – Deep grounder mirage
Keira – Sguitara

Act Now No.20


This is the first show for a while where I’ve gone pretty much dancefloor all the way. I think it’s also the first show ever to include two guest mixes! The first guest mix is from rising tech dubstep star Gravity. You can check out some of his productions over at The second comes from Data whose minimal approach to Drum & Bass has brought him lots of fans including Goldie.

Back again with a great funky breaks guest mix from Watoo and plenty of funk, soul & hip hop from myself.
