We’ve harped on before about the Donky Pitch crew from Brighton, their party friends and general life outlook - we even dedicated one of our installments of theQuietus column to their homie Boss Kite. And recntly we got wind of their first label offering, a split release between two of their parties residents: Slugabed and Ghost Mutt. With Sluga contributing his emphatic ‘Donky Stomp’ (which gets a remix from Spanish beat merchant Mweslee too), Mr Mutt is owning a whole side of wax with the tracks, ‘Platinum Skull’ and ‘Thoroughbred.’ Given the swagger, raw bass and creepily erratic approaches he deploys across the former (and the slinky vibes he wheels out on the latter) we knew he was someone we wanted to task to handle one of our mixes from the first listen.
‘Bringing something different’ is an incredibly overworked cliché even in our world, where we consciously try and avoid that type of rent-o-chump fodder, but it definitely works to grab attention, and it’s something the DP guys are doing brilliantly. So, to commemorate the inaugural release on the DP imprint we holed up at our keyboard and bashed out some correspondence with Ghost Mutt and he kindly serviced us our 57th mix in return.
