The Bristol-born producer hops on his UK garage foot to share a no holds barred inspiration mix that's sure to take you back in time to Sun City's early '00s raves.
It'd take a lot to top the sort of 2016 that Bristol born and London based producer Conducta has experienced, from starting the year collaborating with Notion to dropping Still You last month, which featured the talents of iconic garage vocalist Lifford (best know for his appearance on the Artful Dodger track Please Don’t Turn Me On). It'd be criminal not to mention his insane slew of remixes this year, including his garage-y licks of Cadenza's huge summer roller People and Tayá's club ballad, Sweet Waste Of Time.
A self-proclaimed die-hard fan of the '90s, Conducta dropped in at the start of the year to share 10 of his favourite samples from the decade with us. Fast forwarding a few years into the turn of the millennium, this time he returns to whip together an inspirations mix for our series, that spans a selection of gems from a genre that's held a lot of influence on this sound – UK garage. Moving from reworks of eternal dancefloor smash hits Freed From Desire and Ultra Nate's Free, it's like a trip back in time to a golden age of club classics, and you don't even need your passport.
In Conducta's own words: “I approached this mix with a time machine that placed me at a Sun City rave in 2001. Expect lots of both familiar and forgotten garage jams.”
Listen to the no holds barred mix below, and let us know how that time machine feels.
