Guest Mix: Tellus

We’ve been watching Tellus for a while and we’re big fans of the projects he’s involved in, whether as a solo artist, co-founder of the Locked Concept imprint or one part of the recent 3VS project alongside Akuratyde and Monika. Naturally then we were really pleased when he agreed to record us a Dojo guest mix!

The mix is packed full of deepness new and old, taking in Tellus’s own work alongside beats from Stray, Moresounds, DJrum, Sorse and lots more, plus some unreleased dubs. It’s a lush musical journey through many styles of 170, and a thoroughly enjoyable ride.

As always you can check out the mix via Soundcloud below or head to Youtube or iTunes to stream. You can also grab a download from Google Drive.
