Stepping up for SHUFMIX005, we've got Brooklyn-based producer and DJ Tony G tickling your eardrums with an eclectic hour of uplifting, genre-traversing jams. Breaking the mix down for us in his own words:
"A lot of the songs in this mix were made by myself or by friends that I’ve met and worked with in New York and China. Most of the music leans towards house and techno, with a lot of hip-hop and vocal stuff going on too. Blended a Higher Brothers classic into some breakbeat techno, and closed the mix off with a long lost Bohan Phoenix deep cut."
Lock in and keep an ear out for teasers of his upcoming release on NY's own Sorry Records, out 6th April. Titled Onto and One Off, here Tony G's vision is one laid firmly on the dancefloor, peppered with tight rhythms, wonky synths and staple house vocal samples which add another playful dimension to the label's ever-evolving catalogue. Nick Boyd, who runs Sorry with his partners Carina Geraci and Alia Raheem, tells us how it began:
"I used to live with Tony in 2015 and his rock band at the time made a record in our apartment and I started the label to put it out. These days we put out pop music and dance music and throw parties. We put out all kinds of music though. We’ve got upcoming remixes for Lanlord Lance and Basside coming out soon, this House single from Tony G, a straight up pop single with Chauncey, a Techno project and some Reggaeton singles from Flor."
