Normally FACT mixes go up every Monday and Friday.
This week, however, we’re making an exception. Trust us, it’s worth it.
FACT mix 239 is a recording of the headline set at last Friday’s FACT and Young Turks party, a back-to-back session between Jamie Smith, percussionist in the xx and renowned producer in his own right, and South London’s Oneman, one of the city’s most reliably brilliant DJs, with a revered show on Rinse FM (not to mention a Rinse CD) and a promising label in 502 (home of Jay Weed, TEETH and Fis-T).
Every track is pretty much a highlight here, but some idea of what to expect, Boddika & Joy Orbison’s new collaboration ‘Swims’, DJ Zinc, Dizzee Rascal, Ruff Sqwad, Shed, Armand Van Helden, Girl Unit and ‘Ring my Bell’ all feature.
If you want to watch video footage of the set, head over to the Boiler Room, who were kind enough to come down and stream the night – which also featured sets from Hyetal, DJ Rashad and more – to the world. It was a pleasure, to put it lightly, and the first of a series of ‘live’ FACT x Boiler Room mix sessions – more to come soon.
(Available for three weeks)
