Physical Therapy’s This Mix Is 4 U for Dazed & Confused
GITNB’s Acts To Catch at CMJ 2012: Physical Therapy
This is one mix that I throughly enjoyed from start to finish. It’s not everyday you get a ‘drum n’ space’ take on Shyne, a severely screwed Backstreet Boys edit alongside The Knife, Common and Supreme Cuts, plus Evy Jane, new versions of PT’s own tracks and a slew of other yacked up tracks that will conjure up this kind of ‘fuck yes, this is exactly what I needed’ kind of nostalgia.
I can’t say I absolutely loved Physical Therapy’s Safety Net EP, but I can say I love the way he samples and then samples again, turning familiar jemz inside out with a signature garage-heavy, fast tempo fury that makes me want to turn that shit up a little louder. Plus ‘Drone On’ is such a catchy five minute wonderment.
Also, extremely interested in catching Daniel Fisher’s live set, after seeing him on the Boiler Room. He brings an energy, that unlike most of the recent guests on BR, armed with Kanye’s “Mercy” (RL Grime/Salva remix of course) and plenty of Aalyiah/Beyonce/Whitney edits, I have a hunch Fisher will bring a less ubiquitious, more purposeful and musically exploratory set to CMJ 2012. Then again, at 2am maybe all we want is over-sampled Beyonce edits. Fuck me.
