Halftime Mix Jan’19

Halftime simply refers to 85bpm (half of 170) and strictly speaking doesn’t mean a style or type of dnb.
However, a lot of 85bpm tracks, probably more so in the earlier days had a somewhat minimal sound, primal and often tribalistic rhythms. So a lot of ppl in dnb including myself, use the halftime term to refer to this style of dnb, tracks being 85bpm is irrelevant, just so there’s no confusion!!
I’ve watched this mix more times than most, not because its a great mix or anything, just simply because a few of my favourite tracks (in this style) are in it.

Ezor – Storm by Lifestyle Music
Stumbled upon this freebie this morning from the Lifestyle Music label. Techy sounds, check it yourself.

Before I joined BC several years ago I was probably only familiar with the more well known labels/artists. It had never occurred to me to look a bit deeper. So many. And not just quantity, quality too. At first I didn’t recognise any of Lifestyle’s artists and almost ignored the whole label. What a mistake that would have been because some of them, such as Revaux, Klinical and Objectiv to name a few, are now amongst my favourites.

It’s bassline heaviness from start to finish. A lot of their other mixes and shows are more full-on jump-up style. Really like this one though, more of a vibey jungly flow to their mixing, which is always top quality imo.

(This was a friday night guest mix on Kiss FM (London) ).
