Sam Interface’s contribution to Bleep’s mix series sees the R&S Records signee letting loose and running through a variety of bass-driven polyrhythmic productions. Across 78 minutes here the London-based DJ and producer brings together gqom, hard drum, UK funky, drum techno and various other styles from the global clubsphere’s cutting edge. The tracklist features artists who deliver both stylistic innovation and pure dancefloor magic - productions from Anz, Roska, DJ Plead and Cadenza all feature alongside a few tunes from Sam Interface himself - and Sam Interface finds a similar balance in his blends, letting the beats do the work while also using effects to inject further impetus into his mixing.
"I tried not to think about this mix too much, I put a bunch of my fav current tracks in a folder, added some older stuff that I always enjoy to play + some new bits from me, got in a room at Pirate Studios and pressed record. It's very percussive and drum focussed music, from all over the world, interesting grooves and naughty basslines! It took me a couple of goes to record something I was reasonably happy with and it's far from a perfect mix! But I think in this modern era of highly curated, perfect content, I prefer to listen to a mix where I can hear the DJ is just having fun. This mix is just me improvising, catching blends and tweaking FX on the fly, some of them work better than others but it was really fun to record and hopefully fun for you to listen to!" - Sam Interface
