Mweslee – Donky Pitch mix

Been looking forward to this one for a while now. Ladies and gents I am very happy and honoured to bring you a guest mix from the one and only Mweslee, courtesy of the Donky Pitch family.

All the way from Vigo, in Northern Spain, Mweslee is undoubtedly one of the more interesting and sonically fascinating producers to have emerged of the 00s worldwide hip hop renaissance. I first heard him thanks to the homie Javier from Serie B, who sent me Mweslee’s contribution to All City Records’ 7×7 series while I was living in Japan. Then it was the turn of Dom and Martyn from LuckyMe to mention the man, during our interview back in ’08. A little after that we met on Twitter and I was asked by the Nod Navigators label to do some work for the one sheet of his latest release, the Eurocarne EP – which dropped earlier this year and is still one of our favourite joints from 2010 (here bits from it here).

Internet is all good and well but it’s always nicer when you can meet people in person. Which is what happened when Om Unit and I popped down to CAMP in London in Spring to see Mweslee and The Blessings in action for a Nod Navigators showcase. Not only did we get to meet Mwes and the LuckyMe head honchos, but also the lovely gents from Donky Pitch – who are once more responsible for bringing you this killer guest mix. It has to be said Mweslee’s live showcase that night stays with me as one of the hypest performances I’ve seen this year. If he comes to a town near you, don’t even think twice about reaching.

As for the mix, it’s in celebration of Donky Pitch’s label launch which happens next week, October 23rd in Brighton – home of the donkies. Mweslee is flying over, alongside Alex Nut, Slugabed, Ghost Mutt and Donky DJs. Once more a line up worth making the trip down south for, or if you live in the area getting off your couch for. Trust us it’s bound to be memorable. Tickets are available for £5 here.

EDIT: Bflecha, labelmate to Mweslee on the Arkestra label, has now been added to the line up for the launch party!

The Donky Pitch label kicks off with the appropriately titled ‘Donky Stomp’ EP a split release between Donky family members Slugabed and Ghost Mutt, featuring a remix of the title cut by Mweslee. Regular listeners will have heard the track on recent shows from both myself and RIRS. And if you didn’t then Soundcloud is your friend.

The EP drops October 25 in all good record and online shops worldwide. If you know what’s good for you then you’ll go and grab on sight. Expect more from the Brighton boys, especially with a debut release setting the bar so high.

For more on all things Donky check the Facebook page. Mweslee lives on Myspace but also over at the excellent Arkestra collective, which he co-runs.

The party is next Saturday, and release following Monday. For more Donky sounds check Soundcloud as well as our first guest mix from the collective, courtesy of the mighty French MPC don Fulgeance.

As always mix is below to download and/or stream. On the request of Mweslee we will not be releasing the tracklist until the mix reaches 1000 downloads – so you know what to do. Trust us it’s worth the download, the time and the attention. I can’t remember the last time a guest mix didn’t go well over 1000 so I expect you all to do the right thing. The mix features quite a few exclusives and quite frankly some killer styles. Check back to see the tracklist as and when the limit is reached.

For now just sit back, and get your donky on. Much love and thanks to Mwes and the Donky family for thinking of us once more.
