Hyp 245: Slimzee

It is with great pleasure (and beaming smiles) that we present the latest contribution to our mix series from the legendary DJ Slimzee. Most readers of this website will be well aware of his contribution to UK underground music and don’t need us to go in detail on what he has already achieved as a DJ, radio host and label owner over the past 15 years or so. 2014 -15 is considered to be a period of renaissance for Slimzee, explored in detail within this great FACT interview by Tomas Fraser earlier in the year. What resonated most from this piece was his unquenchable thirst for new music, undiscovered artists and fresh dubs; this the man who contributed heavily to the emergence of VIP/bootleg/specials culture within the Grime scene. His essential NTS show and the recent revival of his Slimzos label are further evidence of this forwarding facing mentality.

In the run up to Halloween this weekend, where Slimzee plays b2b with Joker for Born & Bred at Building Six on Friday night, check out this (insert lame Halloween pun) good mix from the man himself – featuring the standard abundance of rare club ammunition, expertly constructed by one of the best to ever do it.

If anything, a snapshot of where Slimzee is at right now and where he’s going next.
