FRESH JUICE: DG - 'The Comeback' (@wriggledublin)
We kickstart our new series FRESH JUICE, highlighting some of our favorite new releases from artists and labels that we have come to admire.
Words by Oisín Campbell/ Design by Michael Savage
The mixtape is free to download and listen on Bandcamp: wriggledublin.bandcamp.com/album/the-comeback
Our first edition features the recent drop from @dg_353 (DG) on Dublin bass label Wriggle. DG shares his insights with us into the process of making this mixtape, the art of sampling, and his views on the current/ future state of Irish night life.
'The Comeback' is a concept mixtape about an imaginary group of hungover musicians playing a set in a pub in the sticks after a night of heavy boozing and passing out in ditches! It is a move away from the usual dubstep and bass sounds that we have received from past DG and Wriggle releases.
Smooth hip-hop and jazzy riddims on this one, doused in a Dilla-esque dressing of smart sampling and sharp percussion and instrumentals. It's ideal listening for those lazy hot summer afternoons where you crave music to lounge to.
@inspectorcampbellbap will also be previewing the EP in full on his @itsnotradio show this Friday night.
