For #002 we have Ray, aka Riddim Delivery. Originally from London but now living in Southampton, we asked him a bit about the mix and what he's done to date...
"The mix starts off slow, building the energy. Casual blending in and out of the tunes. The energy is increased about a 1/3 of the way in with some classic old school garage tracks thrown in. The final 1/3 the tunes get a bit darker and the mixing a bit more experimental; look out for the MJ accapella thrown in for good measure!"
"I started off mixing at about 15 with some absolutely awful belt drives. Back then I was as good at mixing as I was with women (spoiler - I failed to pull off a decent mix or woman). I was completely in love with UKG though, and I still to this day protest that it is a genre like no other. Want a steady warm up - play garage. Want something for the ladies with vocals - play garage. Want an MC to spit of a dirty beat - play garage. There's a tune for every occasion.
Around age 21, life and a career got in the way and the vinyl went in the garage (no pun intended).
Fast forward to about 2 and a half years ago. I got the itch again - some will call it a mid-life crisis. It was different world now though. It was no longer 2 turntables and a mixer. It was controllers, media players, CDJ’s, DVS systems, samplers, FX packs the lot. I started the scary journey into the digital age and I’ve never looked back. I have a decent set up now and half decent abilities to match.
I’m still yet to play to a crowd of more than about 12 people….something I’m hoping to change very soon."
