Valance Drakes – Rhythm Incursions guest mix

As you know we like to bring you guest mixes from people we think are dope, and with whom we have some sort of relationship. In the ever expanding world of online music, filtering and quality is as important as ever and while we may not be a world famous force to contend with we like to think we do what we do well and that’s why we’ve gained a faithful and growing amount of listeners over the years who know we bring the good shit to the table.

This new guest mix from Valance Drakes is no exception. Valance used to go by the name MusSck, a name you might remember if you’re a regular listener/follower – he was featured on the Nihon Kizuna compilation I helped put together earlier this year and he released on Mochipet’s Daly City label a few years back. Two weeks ago I went to do a guest lecture at London’s CM music academy to a group of young students as part of a module on the Roots of Contemporary Music. The lecture was based on the work and mix I’ve done around the Boom Bap Continuum a few years back. The biggest surprise on the day though was to find a guy in the audience who was really up on a lot of what I was discussing, the artists and history of the new school of hip hop producers. We got chatting at the end of the lecture and I asked him to send me some of his music. My surprise upon realising he was MusSck and I’d released his track earlier that year was pretty big. We laughed about it and I asked him to do a guest mix as I felt that was really the next logical step considering how we’d ended up meeting in such strange circumstances.

And the man delivered in fine style with a 40 mins mix of his own productions, all of which are unreleased material that’s mostly never been heard before! As such there is no tracklist for it, though don’t let that detract you from the enjoyment of what is a great sonic journey into the mind of a talented young producer who twists and turns the so called glitch style into his own and makes it sound just as interesting and fresh as a certain young producer by the name of edIT did years ago.

For more on Valance Drakes you can check his Soundcloud and Facebook pages. He’s already had releases on Daly City as I mentioned and forthcoming ones will be dropping on Schematic, Bedroom Research and Alkalinear Recordings.
