Mitekiss – Crate Six Seven [Hospital]

We first came across Mitekiss here at DNB Dojo back in 2014, when he released a crisp little single for now defunct Leeds imprint Sub:mission Audio. From there the young producer moved on to running his own label Goldfat, before catching the attention of first Shogun Audio and now Hospital Records. Now he lands on Tony Colman’s legendary liquid imprint for his debut album, and we’re pleased to say it’s everything we’d hoped it would be.

Naturally there’s plenty of that emotive liquid that we’ve come to know and love over the years, with higlights coming via Goolab and it’s effortless cascades of piano, the sultry licks of Body Move and the crispy breaks of Hutan. There are also tasty outings into different stylistic territory to enjoy though; rumbling tech aptly vocalised by frequent collaborator Mr Porter on Lenz and a nod to classic jungle on Human being the highlights.

At first glance Crate Six Seven could be dismissed as just another selection of D&B rollers, well-produced but forgettable, but there’s a lot of depth hidden away in these compositions; give it a few listens and we’re sure that the album will get under your skin, just as it has for us here at Dojo HQ. Check out the clips below and hit up the Hospital Store to grab a copy on vinyl, CD or digital now.

Premiere: Karma Kingdom: I’ll Be Waiting

Bay 6 drop a stunning new LP from Karma Kingdom at the end of the week, and we’re hyped to present the premiere of sublime drumfunk workout I’ll Be Waiting. Blending soft strings and melancholy piano with a frenetic breakbeat assault reminiscent of the work of producers like Paradox & DJ Trax, this one is a masterwork in percussive precision; future jazz at 170 beats per minute. Look out for the LP coming Dec 7th at all good digital stores!
