Earlier this week, DJ Barely Legal posted her recent mix from BBC Radio1’s Diplo & Friends show. It’s a fucking banger and you need to listen to the whole thing as she seamlessly blends a lot of high quality bass genres. Just click the link below to be taken to the BBC page for a listen. Absolutely worth an hour of your time.
Now there’s lots of magic in the mix, but the thing that *really* stood out to me was the addition of DJ Assault’s 2011 track “Raccoon” at the 29:20 mark.
What a fascinating bit of Detroit Bass from a legend in the game. It takes a 911 call from some woman that’s been chased into her car by an aggressive raccoon and that aggressive Assault boom ting to form a fantastic track.
I love new music discovery.
