Generic Mix #07: Greetings From Agent J

image

We’re proud to present the 7th instalment of Generic Mix series! The previous six episodes of have showcased selections from all the DJs that are part of the collective: Mørk, Big War, Szajna, FREnchfire and Kernon.

Generic Mix #07: Greetings From Agent J by GENERIC MIXES

For our first mix from a guest selector there was only one person we could ask. DJ, journalist, founder of In The Loop, Groovement, Label Groovement and all round good egg Agent J has supported Generic Greeting from the very start. We had Jamie down to play at our 3rd birthday party in October and were blown away by his set. For his Generic Mix, however, he digs deeper. The tracks ranging from up-front party starters from Machinedrum, Flatbush Zombies and The Clash to OST cuts from Captain Scarlett, Transformers and Miami Vice. The the whole piece together though by atmospheric, beat driven tracks from GG favourites such as Daisuke Tanabe, Om Unit and Com Truise, alongside GG’s very own FREnchfire. The mix also features two tracks from Jamie’s own Label Groovement, Tehbis’ stunning Bristol Way from his Lockdaw EP and J-Felix’s Lady-T from Groovement Volume One.

The mix is as consistent as it is eclectic, as coherent as it is esoteric - the entire mix is a trip. 

The artwork this month is by GG illustrator, designer and producer Dan Kimber. Check out his work here: www.genericgreeting.co.uk/dankimber
