SertOne – #lightbox Mix

We return to our #lightbox series – an introduction to which is here if you’re new to it or have forgotten – with SertOne, a young Irish producer who some of you might remember from the two compilations Laurent curated last year, Nihon Kizuna and Finest Ego.

Sert is definitely one of the nicest young producers we’ve come across in a while, someone who is not only talented and quite clearly working at their art but who is also – as we discovered once we met back in February – deeply interested in the history of the music, its past, present and potential futures. Being that he’s also quite young, we really do think that the future might be bright for this lad.

As he was also part of the Lightbox tour we asked him for a mix. He was slowest to answer but we’ll forgive him considering what he’s delivered for us. See below for tracklist and link. The mix is by his own admittance an attempt to combine various influences and music he loves, from folk to hip hop, and after two failed attempts the mix he’s come out with, based on the tracklist alone, is a corker – including plenty of classics that we’ve been bumping for years alongside dope new rap, electronic music and friends of ours.

Sert’s latest EP, Shapes In The Sky, is out now on Melted Music – disclaimer: Laurent wrote the one sheet for it so we’re obviously totally biased. It’s a great four tracker that showcases the producer’s evolving sound, his definite inspiration from the past – hints of Dabrye are quite clear in some of the music – and his intention to try and shape a future for what he’s doing. We recommend you cop that, as well as his previous releases. This EP will be followed by one from Monto, another Lightbox artist we featured a few months back.

This mix marks the end of our Lightbox series for now. All that remains now is to find more new Irish talent to showcase I guess – don’t worry there’s a few people we want to hit up already. Thanks to all the artists who took part for their time and generosity, in case you missed any of it, here they all are: Tenaka – Collected, Bantum – #lightbox Mix, and Monto – #lightbox Mix. Also word on the street is look out for Monto’s forthcoming nose flute album… seriously.
