'THE GREENROOM' Guest Mix from SKYWEEP: July 30, 2014
On JULY 30, 2014, STUNNA closes out the month with yet another special edition of 'THE GREENROOM' on BASSDRIVE radio. For this session, we welcome back truly one of our favorite artists for another special mix. As he readies his 'CONTRADICTIONS' album for CELSIUS RECORDINGS, settles into his new home in MOSCOW, RUSSIA, and celebrates his birthday this very day, SKYWEEP makes his third appearance armed with an exclusive guest mix.
Hailing originally from MOLDOVA, SKYWEEP has recently relocated to the thriving hub of DRUM+BASS that is MOSCOW and has become immersed in its network of creativity and nightlife. Here are a few words about these new experiences told by the man himself.......
"It started at the end of 2013. I was booked from MOLDOVA to RUSSIA for a big party in MOSCOW at the 16 TONS CLUB on DECEMBER 28th. It was a great party: big crowd and a very powerful sound system. I was introduced to many nice people there (DJ GROOVE - the father of D+B in MOSCOW; ENEI from CRITICAL; IMPISH and CUTWORKS from MOSCOW's own OCCULTI MUSIC label). It was a really amazing night and I decided to spend more time in the city. After a couple of months, I became a resident at OCCULTI MUSIC's monthly party named the 'BURNING SERIES.' It's a small, local underground DRUM+BASS event that's made a name for itself due to the welcoming atmosphere and warm, analogue vinyl sound. It's here where you are able to meet the label's artists, resident DJs, and the rest of the friendly music supporters. It's also where I met my friend from MOLDOVA, RON M, and the lovely DJ KRIZZZ. They are also residents at the 'BURNING SERIES' and we've had good times together. I now have upcoming releases coming on the OCCULTI MUSIC imprint and during my time in MOSCOW, I've also completed my forthcoming 'CONTRADICTIONS' album for CELSIUS RECORDINGS (landing this AUGUST). I have a track called "SELFISH" which I wrote here in RUSSIA that is included on a vinyl compilation for FOKUZ RECORDINGS titled 'FOKUZ BOX - SOURCE OF LIFE: EXPRESSIONS OF A SOUL' and is backed by a cut called "FURIA" by the producer HANDRA. This mix I've prepared for 'THE GREENROOM' is all about supporting my favorite labels: FOKUZ, CELSIUS, OCCULTI MUSIC, VANDAL, DIGITAL BLUS, JAZZSTICKS, TEXTURES MUSIC GROUP, FUTURE THINKIN, and more. You'll hear dubplates from these labels as well as brand-new music from myself as well. Have a listen!"
