Guest Mix

Guest Mix #28: TITEKNOTS (Tru Thoughts, UK)

House / Techno

This great addition to our Guest Mixes series just landed in the inbox and we’re very excited to share this mix from one of our favourite new producers. Titeknots just sort of came out of nowhere and has been killing it these past 12 months. At this time last year we had just discovered his brilliant “Wordy” track which sampled Rene Conty’s “Scrabble” of Dilla “F**k the Police” fame. And since then, the Brighton (UK) based producer has lined up 4 very solid EP’s for Tru Thoughts, who just have the golden touch when it comes to signing new talent.

His tracks have been played by all of big deep house DJ’s in the past year, including yours truly. Titeknots, along with guys like Max Graef, Cuthead, Leon Vynehall are putting out some of the best deep house out there. Or just plain proper house, whatever you call it. As he says his approach is “bringing back the sounds of live instruments, chord movement, harmonies and multi-layered drums with a bit of grit around the edges”

I’ve been playing tracks from the new upcoming “All Talk” EP (upcoming on Auguest 4th) and just like his previous releases, people always come up to me and ask for ID’s. (Always tempted to lie and say it’s me heheh)

So enjoy this dope new mix from Titeknots! “A brand new mix for the summer. Bump it in your car on a long drive. Rock it in your earbuds on a long country walk. Blast it out your boombox at a barbecue. You get the idea…”
