Mix n Blend are no strangers to the streets of Cape Town nor the music landscape of South Africa. Known both for their corporate swing sets and bass-y festival mash up sets, Mix n Blend are kicking off 2012 with a belated Xmas gift for your nearest sound system.
Ben Lewis (one of Mix n Blend’s founding members) is still on Team Mix n Blend, albeit from a far, and has created a mix for the new year! Expect nu disco, funk, hip hop and soul sounds to keep you clinging to the holiday feeling in 2012.
The set list includes artists such as Nas, Prince, Fleetwood Mac, Chicago and Stevie Wonder but this isn’t a hiccup from your Dad’s record collection because the mix also includes work from the Artful Dodger, edits from Psychemagik (Summer of Love), Underdog (Darkchild / Babyface) and Leo Zero (remixed Imogen Heap / Florence + the Machine) and remixes from MJ Coles (BBC Radio 1 Essential Mixes) and Deekline & Ed Solo (Fabric Live) to name a few! Ja, expect to have a permanent smile, head nod and foot tap (at least!) through this set.
