Friends, Music

Digeum Mix Session 04L

It was Jay‘s turn to drop a Digeum Mix. He pinged me by email to let me know he was throwing it down. This time, he wandered, for the first time in Volume 04, into house territory. He calls it “Lazy Saturday Afternoon”, but it’s anything but that.

This mix stomps hard, a street-hardened set of tech house that delivers a drubbing that never softens for a second. When Jay Def wants to spin house music, it’s always gritty, tough, and punches you right in the chest. It feels like three in the morning in a warehouse, where everyone’s sweaty and screaming, the DJ pulls out another record with a bassline that comes from nowhere, and the weak have left the dancefloor for the committed.

Don’t believe me. Go listen to it. And close your eyes and picture every underground party you’ve ever been to — every time it’s getting to that hour when you’ve passed the point where you’re worried about getting up and doing stuff tomorrow.

Digeum Mix Sessions – Volume 04, Session Lima — Lazy Saturday Afternoon. Mixed by Jay Def in Meridian, Idaho, USA, on Saturday, May 08, 2010. Running time: 2:03:33.
