So here is the first part of a four week Metalheadz X Do Androids Dance Platinum Breakz 4 residency- a mix by two of the brightest hopes for drum & bass’s future, Blocks & Escher. The pair feature on the PB4 project with a track entitled Madness which has garnered support from artists as diverse as Zomby all the way across to Loxy. Keep your eyes on doandroidsdance.com for more exclusive content across the month of Platinum Breakz 4.
Here are some words from Blocks and Escher regarding the mix:
“Our intention with the mix was to embrace the essence of what we feel Headz is about, the idea of conveying emotion through timeless music. Music brimming with character and nuance.Mixing for us has never been about simply pounding the dancefloor to the ground or creating trite lulls by throwing in a token ‘minimal’ track; Drum and Bass’ past and present gives us a potent pallette to really create and express the varied emotions and moods often ascribed to traditional music. It’s an injustice not to utilise such a palette.In the mix we have dipped into tracks almost twenty years old alongside more recent music and stuff completely exclusive to the set. The omission of a tracklist offers no preconceptions to the listener, no preconceived ideas of tracks and of their ages. There’s no need to spoon-feed people with this music, listeners just need to listen and be proud of the music they love”
