TDS Mix 004: Boogaloo Crew

Mixtape 004 is brought to us by London duo Boogaloo Crew. Having smashed their way through the Dubstep and UK Funky scenes with killer remix after killer remix over the last year and a rather original sound, they have firmly established themselves as a force to be recognised.

Bringing a sound that fuses Dubstep with old UK Garage and new UK Funky/Underground House, it’s a refreshing sound that is smashing clubs at the moment. These guys also know how to rock a crowd on the 1’s & 2’s … I’ve seen it with my own eyes and it’s non-stop dancing. This mixtape is proof of their mixing talent and I would go as far as to say that the first mix is one of the best, most thought out mixes I’ve ever heard on a mixtape (It does help that the second tune is one of my favourites at the moment). The rest of the mix doesn’t disappoint either, spanning across a pretty large list of styles and sounds, including artists from Ramadanman to Burial to Massive Attack. As varied as the tracklist may look, it flows from track to track fluently, leaving you at the end questioning how 45 minutes went so fast. Overall a very enjoyable listen and a welcome addition to the series!

1. Girl Unit – Temple Keys
2. Ramadanman – Work Them
3. S-X – Woooo Riddim (Instramental)
4. Ramadanman – Don’t Change For Me
5. Sebastian Tellier – L’Armour Et La Violence (Floating Points Remix)
6. Jose Gonzalez – Crosses (Boogaloo Crew Bootleg)
7. The Boogaloo Crew – Vitamins
8. Lorcan Mak – 4 The Love (Dark Sky Remix)
9. Pariah – The Slump
10. Burial – Archangel
11. Photomachine – Technicolour
12. Massive Attack – Paradise Circus
13. Blue Daisy – Blood Petal Roses

    HA! i’ve seen these guys live, they can’t beatmatch to save their lives… all these mixes they make are done on ableton, don’t see how that relates to abilities as a live DJ act? although to be fair, their productions are awesome.

  • Mr Solid Gold

    @anon, mix was definitely done live… can hear it is.

  • john

    i agree they can’t beatmatch live but their tunes are good.

    a dj lesson needed?

    this sounds like ableton to me, maybe not perfectly warped

  • Xtravagant

    Dear Mr Anon,
    Beatmatch? Beatmatch? isn’t that something from a discoteque back in the 80’s? Me thinks you are showing your age perhaps you should stay in a little more with a nice checked wooly blanket and a cup o’ cocoa – ahh bless beatmatch…..

  • Synamatix

    Guys, let’s try and keep the discussion to the music please.

    PS. “Beatmatch” is still the official term used in DJing for making two records the same tempo ;-). OG, but it’s still used.

    this was done on two turntables and two cd decks. we will be sure to post photographic evidence for the next mix we do…

  • Xtravagant

    Dear Boogaloo,
    to keep Mr Anon happy (pst..child of the 80’s) perhaps your photographic evidence could see you posing clad in lycra, wearing matching day-glo headband and legwarmers, all whilst wearing a fetching pair of roller-skates. Oh and don’t forget to beatmatch for christ sake else he may return…

  • pasteypaste

    just cause you’ve seen an act once doesn’t mean they cant mix – monitor couldve been terrible, equipment mightve been playing up, or maybe even hit the beers too hard pre-set. Happens to the best of us! Anyway, big mix and you can definitely hear its a live recording and not put together on a programme.

  • Colak

    been keeping an eye on these guys for a while, and this mix is dope! any idea when The Xx mix is coming out though? NEED.

    Can’t beat match??? Wuuuut……?! They amazing DJs, if you’ve seen clashy mixes it more than likely that the monitoring was bad in the venue……
