Guest MixTAPE: Hearbeat (Dement3d, Paris)

Oi oi ladies and gentlemen, I do hope you're well.

Now, you should know by now that we encourage you to send us any music that you make, promote or have put together in a mix (see the sidebar for postal/e-mail details), and that we'll post it or talk about it if we like what we hear. Well, I'm going to do both in the present case, 'cos Heartbeat, who is based in Paris and runs a night there called Dement3d, has put together a fantastic mix for us which not only sounds suitably fat, deep and dancefloor-primed, but journeys (tastefully) through different styles, eras and genres in what we like to think of as a quintessentially TAPEish manner...

So, A Tribe Called Quest (the timeless, immaculately-produced 'Electric Relaxation') rub shoulders with The Mole (his last Wagon Repair joint), Seu Jorge makes nice with Moodymann, and Rinder & Lewis pass the baton to Derrick May (who dutifully performs techno surgery on its disco DNA). Sporting a whole host of our favourite producers - Mat Jonson, Todd Terje, Carl Craig and Franck Roger - on a whole host of labels we love, this mix is really nicely put together and worth burning as a house party lifesaver par excellence.

Really nice selection of tracks here, perhaps a little too random for a mere hour long set. But still, they guy obviously has taste. Standouts for me were ATCQ, Carl Craig (can he do no wrong?), The Mole (I need to own this awesome bassline) and some classic Derrick May at the end. I think that track is actually 'The Beginning' though, not 'It Is What It Is'. One of my all time faves, cheers. I'll be sending one of my own in soon, although I think Richard already grabbed it on Soulseek.

It was a short and sweet 25 minute mix called PretentiousCosmicSpaceFunkPartOne. Part two is not yet even planned so if you like it and wanna stick it up, let me know and I'll send over the album art and a tracklist.
