(click on image for full size) is proud to present: Xol - promomix february 2013

Xol is a French expat DJ based in Madrid (Spain) for the past decade. He's 36 years old and has been DJing for half his life now! Xol's musical influences include a wide array of genres, from jazz and classical music to hip hop and reggae, which clearly transpire on the brand of drum & bass he plays. Even though 'mainstream dnb' and his musical tastes are heading increasingly into separate directions, the sheer diversity of drum & bass as a music form is the reason why he's still not getting bored of it after all those years! Thanks to technology (which allows us to cram gigabytes of music into a small laptop) Xol virtually plays all styles of drum & bass and he even started getting involved in other electronic genres such as breaks and bass music in general. He always use Serato, a Macbook and either SLs or CDJ's (whatever's available), plus a controller to create loops and throw in some discrete effects.

Xol's had a show on for the past 4 years, and this is the second promomix he has the honor to record for the station: as with the first one, he decided to offer his take on the Jungletrain sound: raw, bass-heavy and dub-infused, only this time he wanted to go back the roots of jungle dnb with clear references to dub and reggae. It is thus a dubwize mixtape you're about to listen to, building up from a stoned, head-nodding vibe to an avalanche of intense, amen-break-driven tunes towards the end. As always Xol focused on the homogeneity and the logical progression of the set, therefore picking up timeless tracks that blend in nicely together instead of cramming only new and unreleased tunes with less coherence. He hopes you will enjoy listening this mixtape as much as he did putting it together for you!
