Getting into the Christmas spirit over here at RnR we have an early present for your ears: Rhythm & Roots Volume XI. The mix is a 36 minute veritable Christmas dinner of music with trifle to boot. Volume XI sits comfortably at 100 BPM, weaving together a multitude of genres, tempos and locations. It is filled with mash-ups, remixes and exclusives (tracklist and links after the jump). I like to think of it as patchwork music or a Christmas dinner with all the trimmings (whichever metaphor you prefer…)
There are a couple of tracks in there from the mysterious but captivating Manchester based producer Holy Other. If you haven’t got your hands on his With U EP released via Tri Angle Records, go out and grab it now. In the words of Boomkat: ” five sumptuous jams occupying the spooked space between R&B, techno and dark ambient.” There are also a couple of exclusive El Buho tracks in the mix, watch this space for more on that.
So, without further ado, from RnR to you: Merry Christmas!
