DLT Mix 003: Sentinels

Summer, summer, summer time. North London production duo Sentinels drop our third Days Like That mix - a nostalgic 45 minute smash of sweet summer bangers, cheeky bass badness and classic two-step anthems. We'll have a full interview with the Sentinels boys, currently causing a rave ruckus with their future classic 'Love Rhythm', up on site next week too. For now download this badboy, slap it in your stereo and get the summer vibes flowing.

"I did the mix using 2 CDJs and a Technic 1210 but all of the tunes were vinyl uploads or vinyl from our collection of UK Garage that we started a decade ago (I feel old saying that!) It starts with bumpy vocal two-step and goes a bit darker towards the end and ends up with the dark garage that preceeded the grime and dubstep era. Highlights for me are two of my favourite garage tunes of all time the MAW MJ Cole mix of 'To Be In Love' and Cleptomatics' 'All I Do', also I pulled out the old trick of mixing 'Flybi' into 'Dooms Night' which we always used to do back in the day haha! Wookie's remix of Sia's 'Little Man' is also a highlight. I really enjoyed it and I think it gave me a reminder of how decently produced most of the classic tunes are, the songcraft and sequencing of the tunes are sick. They may not be louder than say a modern fidget house tune, but there is a much greater dynamic in the mixes and everything on vinyl is generally much better mastered than most modern digital mp3s that float about. Truly days like that. Bring 'em back!"
