In the wee hours of yesterday Julio Bashmore became the latest artist to feature on Pete Tong‘s legendary Essential Mix show. Hailing from Bristol, Matthew Walker’s been kicking up a lot of heat over the past 18 months for both his unique brand of funky-infused house music as Julio Bashmore, and his bassier Velour sideproject on Night Slugs with Hyetal.
It was his sublime Everybody Needs A Theme Tune EP on London upstart PMR at the beginning of this year that catapulted him into the underground spotlight, with A-side ‘Battle For Middle You’ receiving widespread chart support by everyone from Modeselektor, Brodinski and Sound Pellegrino Thermal Team, to Wolf+Lamb, Alex Niggemann and Maya Jane Coles.
This latest Essential Mix is a great journey through the record bag belonging to Bristol’s freshest export, and one of the most versatile EM’s we’ve heard all year:
Julio Bashmore – Essential Mix [September 24, 2011]
Track list after the jump… Continue Reading
The redhead/househead from Bristol, Julio Bashmore, has been on my radar for a hot second now, mostly because any artist signed to dirtybird automatically makes my ears perk up, but this guy has been banging out some absolutely fantastic house tracks in the past couple years. Just this month, Julio has already released two original tracks on dirtybird’s BASS compilation as well as his ‘Everyone Needs A Theme Tune EP’ on PMR, and now he is currently working on a remix for Delphic, some kind of collaboration/remix with Mary Anne Hobbes, and of course, more choons for the bossman Claude VonStroke over at DB. I think it’s safe to say that we’ll be hearing a fair amount from this guy in 2011. Grab a preview of two of Mr. Bashmore’s tracks below, and make sure to head on over to Beatport and buy EVERYTHING.
