The man Capracara is no stranger to the bumping sounds of house and garage, having recently explored the grey areas between the two genres for Rush Hour and Unknown To The Unknown, not to mention previous releases on respected labels like Soul Jazz and James Murphy’s DFA stable.
With the launch of London’s new house and garage heritage night Special Request this Thursday, Capracara joins a number of UKG heads in the form of Charlie Bennet, Hypercook and residents Semtek and TK to play through all garage-related forms, from classic 4×4, mid-90s speed garage, swing-bound 2-step, the darkened FWD>> years, UK funky and beyond.
For the mix itself, we’ll hand over to Capracara for quick run through: “I guess if it wasn’t for the garage sound of New Jersey, we wouldn’t be having this party on Thursday, hence a couple of nods to DJ Disciple and Mentalinstrum in this mix. A couple of tunes by one of my favourite UK producers, Jeremy Sylvester, are in there plus few current gems like the version of the DJ Pierre classic by Mike Q and MK’s remix of Inner City.”
Special Request: The Launch Party takes place at The Question Mark Bar, 129 Stoke Newington High St, Londonm N16 0PH this Thursday April 5 – click here for the Facebook event.
