Olivier Daysoul – Slow Drive Mix (Nitecasting #5)

We start the year in fine style with a guest mix by Olivier Daysoul – which we’re told is his first ever podcast apparently – in celebration of the latest Citinite release, the Fast Life EP by Drive Me Home, on which Olivier features in his unmistakable vocal style.

Regular listeners should be familiar with Citinite. They’ve curated two mixes for us before including the popular Spoek Mathambo one last year, and for those of you who aren’t yet acquainted with the label you can start by hitting up their site and feasting on the back catalogue.

Citinite 018 is Drive Me Home’s first release for Citinite following from output on Big Dada most notably and comes complete with featurings by Olivier Daysoul, Spoek Mathambo and remixes from Rhythm Inc favourites Computer Jay and Machinedrum. The ‘official’ blurb follows:

Drive Me Home, based in Dalston, London, has been making music since 2004, and in 2007 produced a hip hop album for the respected label, Big Dada. Following that he evolved and refined his sound and started the production outfit BBQ, releasing the well received mixtape ‘BBQ Season 2010’. It was on the strength of this hybrid of hip hop, R‘n’B and soul that Citinite offered to release a record and provide an
outlet for his new Drive Me Home project.

With a cross-pollination of production influences, ranging not just from masters like Jam & Lewis and Timbaland, but also from indie and post punk records, Drive Me Home’s aim is to let love songs work convincingly on the dancefloor during a time when most club music is solely about rhythm.

You’ll find all the necessary purchase and preview links on the Citinite release page. Unsurprisingly we’re fans but don’t take our word for it, see equally positive reviews and accolades from the likes of The Wire, DJ Magazine and more. We’ll be airing music from the EP on this month’s show as well.

As for the mix it really is the best way to start the year, 30 minutes of smooth and eclectic selections from Olivier Daysoul – no tracklist, just the sweet sweet music from Brazilian grooves to hip hop jams and more.

Should you also need to familiarise yourself with Olivier’s work, check out his recent release alongside Krystal Klear on Eglo Records which we also highly recommend. Olivier’s pictures above was taken by Oddissee.

Much love to Manny at Citinite and Olivier. Enjoy!
