Dummy Mix 555 // Miley Serious

Boasting a DJ name that we can all get behind, Paris-based Miley Serious is a woman of a multitude of talents. Label head of 99cts Records and a host on Rinse France, she also throws regular parties at Parisian club La Java as well as other hotspots in the French capital.

Miley’s musical universe is varied: her sets can weave through acid house, ghetto house, industrial and electronic, and her Dummy Mix is no different. Veering through snarling fragments of techno, dusty breaks and sprightly, pointillist beats, it’s a darkly fun ride. “It feels like a long time since I did something with a lot of textures like that,” Miley says, adding: “feels good though.”

“That’s my favourite type of sound – lofi,” she continues, “It’s full of new and unreleased stuff from my favourite labels: TRAM Planet, BRKN, low income $quad.”

Dummy Mix 554 // Coco Bryce

Dutch DJ, producer and Myor label head Coco Bryce recently handed in a masterpiece of an album with ‘Night On Earth’, comprising eight cuts of classy AF jungle that doesn’t mean ‘revival’ in a pejorative sense. Toeing the line between chill and hype is some skill, but Bryce manages it with aplomb on the album, providing a manual that all jungle producers worth their salt should have a leaf through.

Having DJed since 1995, Coco Bryce has been firmly in the hardcore, breakbeat, D&B, gabber and jungle world for some time, and his Dummy Mix certainly mines those zones but is “a bit different from what I usually play,” he told us. “Normally most of my DJ sets and mixes are around 160bpm, mainly jungle, lots of new releases blended with a solid dose of 94/95 stuff… for this one, though, I went and picked some of my personal 1992 favourites, with a couple of newer bits thrown in for good measure (including an as-of-yet unreleased one by myself which I made just a couple of weeks ago).

“Even though I don’t play these tunes out all that much, it’s hands down one of my favourite eras, especially when it comes to breakbeat hardcore. It’s just before the split between jungle and (happy) hardcore: the drums aren’t super choppy yet, but you can already kinda hear where things were headed, yet it still has that rave-y feel to it, without sounding corny or being too bouncy, you know… I just love how spontaneous those tunes sound.”

Tune in to Coco Bryce’s bone-rattling, ’92-centred Dummy Mix now:

Existence – In My Dreams
2 Bad Mice – No Respect
Desired State – Duckin And Divin
Vanilla Essence – Vanilla Essence

Dummy Mix 553 // Goro

Bulgaria-born, Berlin-based Goro is a producer who eyes club music on a global scale. He makes music with the ethos of ‘counterbalancing westernisation with easternisation’ (according to his Soundcloud bio), channeling his Balkan heritage through his eclectic, explosive sound.

Having recently appeared on Merci Jitter’s ‘Riddled Form‘ compilation, Goro is gearing up to release his debut album next month – ‘Unbound Forever’, a document that draws inspiration from far-flung and as-yet-undiscovered genres including Romanian “Instrumentala Criminala”, older forms of Turkish Bubbling and classical Bulgarian-Roma Kiuchek.

A no-holds-barred blend of Eastern dance slotted next to Goro’s flips of the Ying Yang Twins and Bollywood tracks, Goro’s Dummy Mix is an essential listen. “The mix was fun to do!” Goro says. “I threw in a varied selection of the most typical tracks that I usually play from me and my friends, as well as some undiscovered Balkan gold.

“I am also premiering here for the first time a good number of the now-mastered tracks from my album 🙂 Btw you can hear Daniel [Dummy’s New Music Editor]’s voice message when I asked him to change the cover photo (as he was boarding a flight) as the first thing in the intro hahaha.”

Dummy Mix 552 // Konx-Om-Pax

Konx-Om-Pax’s first LP in three years, ‘Ways Of Seeing‘ is a refreshing switch-up of sounds. Having recently upped sticks from Glasgow to Berlin, Tom Schofield’s album is almost a reaction against the dark, gritty noise emanating from the German capital – opting instead for warm electronica, recalling fellow Glaswegians Rustie and Hudson Mohawke (and first cut ‘LA Melody’ came from staying with Ross Birchard in LA).

The multimedia artist is returning to Planet Mu for the technicolour album, which is being billed as “a panacea to the darkness and disorientation all around in 2019,” and takes in more accessible sounds taken from trap, techno and hip-hop.

That said, Konx-Om-Pax’s Dummy Mix has both eyes firmly on the rave. A punishing hour-and-20 that slots bleeding-edge dancefloor freshness next to classic anthems, his mix tessellates fragments of techno next to stomping warehouse sounds. Opening with his Nightwave collaboration, ‘I’m For Real’, from the album, it quickly delves into both confrontational and euphoric soundscapes before crashing into some breakbeat madness towards the end.

Konx-om-Pax – I’m For Real (ft. Nightwave)

Skee Mask – Muk FM
Chevel – Harsh Times (Happa Remix)
Special Request – SP4NN3R3D

Konx-Om-Pax’s ‘Ways Of Seeing’ album is out June 14th 2019 via Planet Mu.

Dummy Mix 551 // India Jordan

Doncaster-born, East London-based India Jordan runs New Atlantis, a bi-monthly ambient Sunday social at Peckham’s Rye Wax. From this information you might expect her to be all about beat-less cuts, but her background is in full-throttle 4×4 music, with a love of classic hardcore and jungle coursing through her veins.

Ahead of new EP, ‘DNT STP MY LV‘ that promises ‘four absolute rockets for the club’ currently being spun by Teki Latex and Finn, arriving shortly on Local Action, she’s pieced together a slamming mix packed full of hardcore club belters from past to present.

“Recorded in Manchester, this mix features new and old classics that I love,” Jordan says. “It is a reflection of the type of set I’d play in a club: lots of breaks and high energy tunes. I’ve included a few tracks from my new EP, some forthcoming bits from 2 B REAL, Insert, Bandcloud and the Local Action family.”

Dummy Mix 550 // Bambii

Tired of not finding the sort of space she wanted to go out and dance in, Toronto-based DJ/producer Bambii decided to create her own. Six years ago, she started her JERK party in her native city – in order to offer a more inclusive array of genres as well as a space where people of colour and of the LGBTQ+ community are welcome.

“It started out in a tiny DIY venue with me giving away free chicken wings. I spent the whole day cooking for attendees and now it has grown into a giant rave,” Bambii says. Having hosted DJs including Mike Q, Full Crate, Venus X and Manara, JERK’s sounds are very much of the no-borders global club scene, as well as embodying Bambii’s own Caribbean heritage and the diversity she was exposed to growing up in Toronto.

“I realised through my own touring that the problems Toronto nightlife has is not unlike the problems that many other cities face, so touring JERK across North America seems so necessary right now,” she explains. “JERK sounds like the Caribbean underbelly of Toronto but extends out to the global club music that has an infinite amount of cultural connections. This year JERK will be hitting Halifax, Los Angeles, New York, Montreal and of course Toronto. We have DJ/producers like Asmara, TygaPaw, Foreignerrr and many more that will be featured on the tour.”

Mykki Blanco described her as “one of the most talented DJs I know period,” and Bambii’s Dummy Mix is a wild, no-holds-barred array of club sounds, from old skool jungle to Omarion remixes to early 2000s UK garage. “This mix captures the sounds of JERK and all the communities that support it,” Bambii says – and you can press play below.

Dummy Mix 549 // Xzavier Stone

Occupying the same musical space as artists like Sega Bodega, Sinjin Hawke and Martyn Bootyspoon, Switzerland DJ/producer Xzavier Stone has a knack for polishing underground club sounds until they gleam.

Following a slot on Fractal Fantasy’s ‘Visceral Minds 2’ compilation in 2017, the Zurich-based artist’s 11-track debut album ‘Thirst’ arrived last year on the label – tapping into dancefloor-minded R&B, dancehall and bass-driven sounds. Lead single ‘Give Me Sum’ took slow-slung beatwork to new heights, with a pitched-down vocal that begged for club play.

Chopping up euphoric rap edits with crystalline melodies, Xzavier Stone’s Dummy Mix is what the club should sound like in 2019: a heady blend of sugar-rush melodies in the slickest of stylings.

Dummy Mix 548 // Joe Hertz

Brixton-based DJ/producer Joe Hertz is in the business of fusing earworm R&B melodies with hyper-textural production. Having DJed since the age of 15, Joe has music in his blood – he’s the son of Pete Tong, but has made a name for himself over the course of a few years in the industry without needing to reference that family connection.

Previously elusive, Hertz has come to collaborate with some select talent, including Amber-Simone, and earlier this year dropped his ‘Møøn’ single with Nonô. Currently working on an album, Joe has recently come off a tour around Asia, and has taken a moment out of knuckling down for the LP to record the latest Dummy Mix.

A blend of midnight-hued, jazzy sounds, Joe’s mix is an eclectic one – and definitely one to crack on in the early hours. “This mix is for those nights when you have too much on your mind and you just wish you could escape to a place you’ve been dreaming of,” Joe says. “Some songs that have lifted me from the haze and the struggles of living in a big city. Stay positive, keep your head up…”

Dummy Mix 547 // DJ Haram

DJ Haram’s mixes and productions are typically off-piste in the best way possible: a fierce blend of sonics from the Middle Eastern sounds of her heritage all the way through to Jersey club. From her noise band 700 Bliss with Moor Mother, to her own fired-up productions, she’s someone who’s consistently pushing things forward musically.

She’s just been playing out in Egypt and is involved in a forthcoming ‘Cairo Concepts’ compilation, that scoops together dance, bass, tambourine and autotune-soaked sounds of Mahraganat and club artists – where the Discwoman affiliate, producer and DJ has contributed ‘Blessed’ (which you can check out exclusively in her mix below).

“This mix is a reminder to embrace evolution, influenced by my recent residency in Cairo and themes from a couple of my forthcoming EPs,” DJ Haram says. “My musical journey inspires me to centre learning in all of life. These sounds are tried wisdom and fresh lessons.”

Ever-forward-thinking, DJ Haram’s Dummy Mix spins some of the freshest iterations of club music as well as those from further-flung climes – and it’ll leave you clutching your jaw.

Dummy Mix 546 // Noga Erez

Tel Aviv-based singer, songwriter and composer Noga Erez blew us away with 2017 album ‘Off The Radar’ and its disjointed, politically-infused pop. Holding experimentalism at the core of everything she does, she recently reimagined that LP into ‘RADAR Reworked’ using her native country’s Camerata Orchestra, reaching into the space between contemporary and classical.

We invited the renegade Israeli artist to helm the latest Dummy Mix, where she’s scooped together a sharply-curated blend of hip-hop and thumping electronics,  playing like a mixtape of some of the most exciting and forward-thinking music going.

Dummy Mix 545 // Know V.A.

Amsterdam-based production duo Know V.A. are in the business of fashioning dystopian club sounds, stripping back the brutalism of harder electronic genres to find the fragility at the heart of these sounds. The Red Light Radio mainstays have an economical but hugely exciting back catalogue, becoming a favourite with DJs who spin club sounds at their most futuristic.

Inspired by hard dance and Dutch early gabber, forthcoming six-track release ‘Strange Days’ is set to drop on Finnish label Signal Life, and touches on the current global political climate, according to the pair. Going by the same name as their series of ‘Strange Days’ club nights in Amsterdam that showcase contemporary hardcore with cutting edge sonics underpinned by an impending sense of doom.

“With this mix we explored the sonic world of ‘Strange Days’, using our upcoming release as the backbone,” they say. “It’s filled with all that inspired us, from the music that was around when we were younger and more recent stuff that has caught our ears. This will give you a good idea on what you’ll hear when you’re stuck with us for an evening.”

Drawing for some bullet-riddled Dutch hardcore, Korn remixes and concluding with an Angerfist track, Know V.A.’s Dummy Mix is an example of boundary-pushing experimentalism done right. Press play below, and peep the tracklist after the jump.

Dummy Mix 544 // Swan Meat

Currently based in Cologne, Germany, but hailing from Washington D.C., Reba Fay is Swan Meat – poet, audio engineer and producer, among other talents.

Newly-announced as a Rinse FM resident, she’s also dropped tracks on Bala Club and PERMALINK – her latest being ‘Throat‘.

Taking the wheel for the latest Dummy Mix, she told us: “Though it’s hard to say this without sounding a bit, I dunno, cringe, when I compose and subsequently produce music my workflow is narrative rather than modular; i.e. I can’t work with loops or write from a foundation-of-repetition, though I know I’m supposed to and should. Wait, there’s an easier way to say this: I get bored easily!

“Maybe it’s because I’m also a writer, but when I make music I always find myself making these big, fantastical sonic-narrative-what-have-you leaps, ‘cuz why can’t one song actually be five, ten, 1000? Anyway I sort of did the same thing with this mix – it’s the soundtrack to some sort of demented adventure, maybe: I’m wearing a gigantic raccoon suit (idk how it’s on, though) and I’m trapped in this haunted house in the basement of a hotel in Las Vegas, running through all these rooms trying to escape. The light at the end of the nightmare is my music.”

She continues: “This mix skates from genre to genre with lots of fast cuts and mixing, and features quite a bit of music I like to play when I’m DJing live (or on my Rinse show) as well as my own stuff. It starts out hyperactive circa 170BPM and sort of starts breaking down, deteriorating with the entrance of this Children of Bodom track through ’til the end.”

A super-fast blend of trance, drum ‘n’ bass, heavy metal, video game dialogues and poetry readings, Swan Meat’s Dummy Mix is a wild ride.
