Danny Drive Thru – The Story of Our Lives

Our next guest mix for February comes from Manchester’s Danny Drive Thru, a producer/DJ/tablist I first became aware of a year or so ago thanks to the genius of his Virtua Rap bootlegs which saw him redo classic rap bangers in 8bit style with all the rhymes done in text to speech software. If you ain’t heard them yet, here’s Ante Up – definitely one of the funniest.

That Ante Up remix was included in Fat City’s Producer series, and since then Danny’s also done some remix work for fellow Mancunian Sneaky (he of Fingathing fame) – which we aired a while back – and had his music pushed by people including Fulgeance, Kutmah and the Hoya Hoya crew. He’s definitely one of the more interesting producers to come out of the UK in recent years, and the recent stuff he sent us at the tail end of last year should hopefully mean you hear more from him this year. We certainly hope so anyways as there’s some tasty stuff in there.

All of which obviously led us to inquire about a guest mix, which Danny duly delivered over the holidays in the shape of The Story of Our Lives – recorded on two turntables with some effects. The mix encompasses influences you can hear in some of Danny’s work as well as being another cinematic, sonic ride – just what we like then.

As I said you can expect to hear more from Danny this year. I believe the Sneaky remix is getting an official release soon on Sneaky’s remix album and I’d be willing to bet that his name will be appearing on at least a couple of releases before the year is over. We’ll be airing a few more bits of his in coming months too.

For now though head over to the soundcloud page for more music and bump the mix loud – it includes quite a few old Rhythm Inc favourites like Birdy Nam Nam, the 2tall Beautiful Mindz project, Kelpe and Fulgeance. As always you can download and/or stream below or simply subscribe to the RSS/iTunes/newsletter to receive automatic updates and all the shows directly to your computer.

Massive thanks to Danny for taking the time to do this mix. Enjoy!
