A THGXTMID Mix: Mattic – Cloverfield Mansion [Act 1] X A Madlib Invasion (Dilla & Mattic Mixtape)

Next, on the Two Hungry Ghosts X Tell Me I’m Dreaming mixtape series we have American born, MC and sound explorer, Mattic AKA Dr Outer AKA The Ghost In The Machine, who now lives in the hills of Le Harve, France.

Mattic and I first met online in 2012 after the release of his debut solo album “The Abstract Convention”, since then he has released music under various aliases and guises with numerous appearances and collaborations as well as a second LP on Phonosauras titled “The Adventures Of Doctor Outer”.

What has always struck me about Mattic is how prolific and humble he is. A quick glance at Discogs will lead you to think he hasn’t released much music and a Google search won’t reveal much either. He will pop up on social media for a few weeks then disappear deleting any content. Our conversations often revolve around a shared vision of the world, a rejection of the importance of social media stats and sharing nerdy music knowledge, soundbites and sample sources. I’m privileged to be part of a small trusted crew who are allowed into his unreleased music vaults, covering countless full albums, mixtapes with bespoke lyrics, demos, collaborations and even a vocal reinterpretation of Madlibs “Rock Koducta” LP.

Fuelled by a strong passion to create and a desire to be “close to a few rather than part of the zoo” its rare these projects see the light of day, locked down to personal Dropbox folders with rare WeTransfer shares via DM’s and email exchanges. It’s with great pleasure I can bring you this mixtape of Dilla and Madlib beats complete with original rhymes, skits and vocal sound design crafted by Mattic. Made purely for pleasure, not for profit and out of deep love and respect for the producers enjoy this rare glimpse into the creative world of Doctor Outer…

THG Mix Series Volume 3: Yorobi – Tales Of An Onna-Bugeisha

The THG Mix Series continues with this selection titled “Tales Of An Onna-Bugeisha” by Yorobi. Sixty minutes of intricate, eclectic and emotive drum and bass featuring new and unreleased music by Om Unit, Ricky Force and Sun People.

A resident DJ on Jungletrain, Yorobi meticulously blends new styles of modern jungle. Yorobi is also a producer, with forthcoming releases on Parallax and Disc World, alongside Tim Reaper.

This mix is more of a drum and bass selection than what she would normally play, taking an opportunity to craft a set that people may not expect from her.

You can catch Yorobi playing at Rupture when the iconic club night visits Amsterdam on 27th December performing alongside Loxy, Sully, Mantra, Double O and Coco Bryce.

Featuring in the mix is “Drum Tree” by Tim Reaper and Yorobi, an exclusive vinyl release, only available as a reward to backers of the Disc World crowdfunding project on Kickstarter. The campaign is the brainchild of Lewis “Sicknote” and Chris “Dexta”, aiming to raise funds to open a record store and Dubplate cutting studio in Lewisham, London.

A THGXTMID Mix: Daniel Venom Maunick – Foundations (Broken Beat Mixtape)

Daniel Maunick presents “Foundations”, key and influential bruk tracks selected and mixed by Far Out’s in-house producer. Daniel, aka Venom, has been a key part of recent albums by legends Azymuth and Marcos Valle, as well as producing broken sounds under the name Viper Squad.

Fuelled by artists like IG Culture, Afronaught, Phil Asher and a wealth of drum and bass pioneers at the helm, this new culture fused jungle, house, soul, boogie, latin and jazz resulting in some of the most exciting and futuristic music to come out of London.

This selection features music from drum and bass protagonist’s 4hero (both Marc Mac and Dego in a variety of guises) and Sonar Circle (Domu) as well some of the scenes most important artists including IG, Jazzanova, Kaidi Tatham and the Bugz In The Attic crew.
