Fake Blood - Essential Mix 14.03.09

Fake Blood aka Touche visited Warsaw just a week ago at the Sorry, Ghettoblaster party series and totally destroyed the dancefloor in 55 Club located in the old Stalinist-era Palace of Culture and Science (actually the symbol of Warsaw). The club was packed uber-full, and only thanks to the thick walls and high ceilings the entire venue survived the beats and hundreds of people dancing, or rather jumping, to the tunes played by extremely crafted artist. Fake Blood served banger after banger, while mixing the music from two decks and two laptops! His mixing, toonz selection and control over the dancing crowd was absolutely amazing. He made me sweat, he made me laugh, he made it worth waiting in a f.....king queue for over an hour.

And now he dropped a 2-part mix set for BBC 1 Essential Mix. 1st hour of the mix presents more or less what he plays at the parties and the 2nd part is more free-style, deeper and not necesserily banger-like. Although I definitely prefer listening to Dj's of Fake Blood's type at the parties, when I need an adrenalin kick and can forget about repetititious patterns and dull rhythm which are the trademarks of this music, the Essential Mix is still worth listening.
