Producer & DJ Effluvia stepping up for his first Gangstercast - Effluvia had a hand in the production & writing of Magnetic's new single "Raynas" by "Destrada" for which he also produced the remix. His DJ mix is full of new tunes from labels like Dirtybird & Pots n Kettles - as well as a few classics from Strictly Rhythm and our own IAHG. Follow Effluvia on instragram @effluvia_
Effluvia describes this mix as a tribute to the musical journey
that himself and studio partner Destrada have been on over the past
year. With some of their original productions along with new song
from "Raynas" that is about to be released on Sneak's 'Magnetic'
imprint as well as are some selections from the new "Pots n'
Kettles" label imprint as well.
To Effluvia I’M A HOUSE GANGSTER is all about massive flavor on the dancefloor-
“Pumping sounds that are Soulful & Funky & give no
damn to their Soulfulness or Funkiness. Which in my opinion can be
the best kind of Soul & Funk; like a soul that doesn't give a
shit or like unpretentious Funk that is walking the line with Punk;
“House music has been the beat to my heart for many years now. I've been fortunate to have traveled the world thanks to House music. House has been my plane ticket, my meal ticket, and its always made me feel like I'm holding a winning lottery ticket”
For this mix Effluvia has focused on some new tracks from people he respects as well as some of his all-time favourite tracks that he’s edited-up so as to create a certain vibe.
“I like the juxtaposition of classics with new material; if the new material 'works' just as well as the classics, that's when you know you're dancing to quality”
