There’s always something coming out the speakers in the Ticket Arena office, so we thought we’d share some of the sonic splendours that soundtrack all of our hard work. Now a weekly feature that brings a different artist to the fore each Thursday, the TA Mix Of The Week scours the vaults for some of our favourite sets of old and keeps a beady eye out for the classics of the future, serving up a taste of the artists that make us happy to do what we do.
This one’s not just fresh, it’s still warm out of the oven. A big entry into our Mix Of The Week series, this Slimzee exclusive for 1Forty today sees the light of day for the very first time, as do some of the dubplates used in the half hour mix. Compiled from dubs of old garage, grime and bassline tracks that will probably never see a proper release, the mix is packed with secret weapons that the legendary bass don has been keeping for just the right occasion. Founder of Rinse FM, member of Pay As U Go Cartel and a veteran of UK bass in all of its forms, Slimzee knows when its time to drop bombs, and he’s dropped a biggun today.
Slimzee plays at MiNT Club in Leeds on Friday 5th May as part of the third episode of 1Forty. Joined in getting the Funktion-One sound system rocking by Holy Goof, Darkzy and more, Slimzee will no doubt be excited for a spectacular night of some of the heaviest UK bass going.
