Swede:art – Handclap Violins

German beatsmith Swede:art takes all the ingredients of a modern garage tune, but puts them together like a hip hop beat.

Easily the best I’ve heard from the man, I’m excited to find out what he’s up to with this. Also fits in quite well in today’s Actress selection, don’t you think?

Volume 03 – mixed by Paul Pre

Actually a designer, Paul Pre is best known as DJ behind countless mixtapes. Following contributions to Mondayjazz, Moovmnt and Musique Large, Paul has put together his latest mixtape for nutriot. While he is know to put together instrumental hip-hop mixes, this one is actually the first dubstep/garage mix from him – and it’s just as good as his others!

When he isn’t working on quality mixtapes, Paul Pre is also playing at parties. His new club night Vast will kick off this February, starting with special guest fLako.

Volume 01 – mixed by Swede:art

Ever since I started this blog, I have been thinking about adding a podcast. I first aimed for a launch around the first anniversary back in August, but there was simply no time. Today, I’m proud to present you its first edition, which was put together by German producer Swede:art. In addition to that, you should read an interview with the man, or listen to some of his music.
