upsammy’s bumper mix for Bleep is as playful and adventurous as her studio productions. The rhythms of this ninety-minute set vary, particularly in the first half. One minute upsammy is running the kind of bright, glistening IDM that was heard on her recent Zoom LP, the next a downtempo break or dembow has shaken things up still further. No matter what speed the tracks are a charmingly excitable air runs through everything here, one that’s not dissimilar to the aesthetic of D. Tiffany or Reptant. Things heat up in the second half, with proceedings almost verging on junglism at points before an increased number of half-time tunes bring the mix in for a smooth landing.
"I wanted the mix to be an homage to all the types of music that inspire me at the moment, steering away from the mix becoming about one particular genre, but more focussing on elements I appreciate in music like rhythms that tickle my ears or intricate and quirky melodies. Music that’s light and bassy at the same time and also has a dynamic element to it. The beginning is a bit more trippy and delicate, continuing to a more fast clubby sound and then it kind of zones out into a deep but bright part.”
