With a little over 24 hours before they’re set to man the decks at our pink album release party, we asked Belgian-Luxembourg DJ duo The Criime to put together an exclusive mix for us. A soulful, sexy and at times even sultry edit of deep house music, the mix sets the tone about right for tomorrow night’s festivities.
Can you describe the mix in a few words?
This mixtape starts with our favourite band Caribou, continues with some deeper and groovy sounds, then there comes the more acid groovy part to get you dancing, and as desert we finish with magnificent song from Kindness, Cyan. It somehow expresses what we are and what we do, in terms of producing and playing music.
Can you tell us about the exclusive track on the mix?
The exclusive track is a track from Andrea’s new solo project, Cleveland – Bruxlyn One, a track he’ll be releasing in October on Batti Batti Music, Owen Jay‘s (Underground Quality) new label. As this is for a magazine from Brussels it fits well (‘Bruxlyn One’).
When and where did you record the mix?
The mixtape was prepared and recorded on Wednesday 5th of September in Brussels at some friend’s appartment.
What’s your favourite track on it?
Smallpeople – Black Ice (such a great bassline!) Can’t get enough of this!
What do you have coming up in the next few weeks?
Fabio now lives in Cologne for studies, which is perfect because the Brussels-Cologne axis could be very useful in terms of musical influence and action. We are working together on our next EP which we hope to release beginning of next year. Andrea’s got some releases with his project Cleveland. And who know’s maybe soon a live show project? But until then, studying, producing, mixing.
