Take a listen to this fresh new mix from DJ Rizzla released exclusively for DISCOBELLE earlier this week. Don’t miss him live in Hartford on October 1st at Mad Dawg’s . Here’s what Discobelle has to say about the mix!
Big, big things are in the works from Rizzla, who provided us with an unbelievably hot mix to start the week. Kicking off with what sounds like a dial up internet connection that you might hear dissonantly playing in the background of a David Lynch movie, things only get more frenetic from there.
Amidst the chaos, you can find a plentiful helping of Ha beats influenced by everything from New Orleans bounce to apocalyptic military reincarnations of the classic Masters At Work “HA Dance” track, each providing enough of a variation on the original theme to sound jarringly different every time.
There are also plentiful original productions from Rizzla here, further showcasing a dancefloor versatility that’s positioned itself somewhere hazily in between house, intensely homoerotic rave, techno, garage, bass, soca, dancehall and vogue, all mixed with maybe a little side of scathing political critique. I mean, when you name a track “Battyboy bleeding in the dark”, there’s gotta be some politics at work. Regardless of how you choose to characterize it, some of these gems may be finding a home on a certain fantastic soon-to-be-revealed label later on this year.
As if that’s not enough, the mix is also stuffed to the seams with exclusives from Mikeq, Dubbel Dutch, Kingdom and previously featured dance music disemboweler blk.adonis. Grab it now, you won’t regret it.
