Our first mix of the new year is brought to us by Portugese originator, London resident and ManMakeMusic artist, Trikk.
With only a couple of tight releases under his belt, Trikk has gained a solid reputation on the London circuit, bringing his own take on House music to the table via a quality over quantity approach. Last year was a good one for Trikk, with his Jointly release landing on George Fitzgerald’s ManMakeMusic label and receiving a lot of due attention, as well as a release on Con+ainer Music. This year will see this young talent drop a highly anticipated follow up EP on ManMakeMusic as he aims to really push his sound into new territories.
This mix is a great insight into his taste, flowing from percussive house with soft chord melodies to stripped back, swung rhythms as well as his new found passion for Jungle influenced House music. It’s a great mix to get you in the mood for the weekend. Be warned, it has a quiet intro, so don’t go pumping those speakers straight away or you’ll get a shock later on.
Keep an ear to the ground for Trikk’s forthcoming ManMakeMusic EP, followed by a release on Hypercolour’s hype_ltd sister label and Pets Recordings. It’s a busy year for this one. In the mean time, stream the mix below.
