My boy Black Dominoes is over killin' it in London, channeling the magic from the land of the misty, and made a sick March mix for the pleasantries of our ears, and you're welcome for bestowing it upon your mind and soul. NOT ONLY does he open up with one of my favorites by Damarzo x Kolumbo, but he ends it with one of his own and it just soothes you to the core. Mmmm mmm.
Let's get this out of the way first:
Most DJ mixes that make their way onto YouTube are cheesy.
New Jersey fist-pumping, cheap-cologne wearing, fake-tan levels of fromage.
One of our buddies is here to change that.
Atlanta-bred Kellen Crosby, aka Black Dominoes:
He has one foot in ethereal, abstract music and the other in driving,
minimal, Chicago-style club tracks. If DJs like Heroes and Villains
are Atlanta's Flosstradamus (trap rap with big-room dubstep) and
Distal is the Southern USA's version of DJ Rashad (footwork, juke,
techno) then Black Dominoes is the Four Tet, the Dixon, the Ame of the American South.
Think clean and classy house and techno.
"When I had the idea for the London Workshop mix series, it was just to make something small, something easily digestible but still amazing", said Crosby. "Normally I go from slower and deeper tracks to faster and more percussive stuff over the course of hours, not minutes!" The speed at which the mix changes tempos is quick, but the tracks are quality. "All the tunes are new, that's the other thing. I want the mix series to be only newer songs, and hopefully at least one original track a month."
If you've outgrown EDM brostep or ''dirty electro'' (or maybe you're just of legal drinking age) but still like electronic tracks with a decent helping of bass, give this mix a listen.
It'll be easy to find on YouTube... it's one of the only mixes without a picture of an airbrushed, surgically enhanced girl in a bikini on the cover
