MIX DEL DÍA: Luke Hess – RA 368 Podcast

luke-hessPara este inicio de semana, no hay nada mejor que un BUEN mix, nutrido, cálido, sustancial, fino para hacer que el lunes cambie un poco su cara.

En esta ocasión, el artífice de tal misión es el productor de Detroit Luke Hess, quien hace entrega a la plataforma Resident Advisor un podcast realmente flipante. Perfecto para esta hora de la tarde.

”Music styles come and go, but Detroit keeps chugging along. Luke Hess is the perfect example of this. A Motor City lifer, he grew up immersed in its underground music scene. Since the mid-’00s, he’s put that wealth of musical knowledge to work on a steady stream of EPs for labels both international (Kontra-Musik) and homegrown (FXHE, where he’s one of the few regulars who’s not Omar-S). All the while he’s honed a uniquely dubby sound rather than follow trends. It reached its apex last year with Keep On, his FXHE-released, RA-Recommended second full-length. And he leant his studio knowhow to his longtime friend Omar-S by mixing down “I Just Want,” a standout track from Thank You For Letting Me Be Myself.

The sound he favors in the studio is well reflected in his DJ sets, which pair the atmospherics of icy dub techno with buoyant rhythms that are anything but. He puts that style on display with RA.368, which winds its way through all sorts of deep techno textures. As Hess tells us below, the mix is about more than the records played: he’s making a statement about the art of mixing itself”.
