Summer anthems are generally released well in advance of the hottest months, but Bristol-based label Crazylegs recently dropped arguably the biggest underground hit of the season – dJJ’s ‘Just a lil’. Hailing from the west coast of Wales – and one half of ISLAND, who released ‘Nokia’ in April – dJJ has gained a reputation for offering some of the most rugged and straight up fun House-centric mixes in the past year. FACT even coined the term ‘outsider Ibiza’ upon hearing his jaw-dropping mix for Crazylegs’ Radar Radio takeover in February. His first single, ‘Just a lil’ is out now, accompanied by an amusing home movie style video which features dJJ and friends at a Welsh theme park.
Following on from a slew of monthly mixes dJJ steps up for another blistering dance floor journey for Hyp 240. Entitled ‘September Mix’, this one is dedicated to dJJ’s unborn baby; his girlfriend is due on September 23. Speaking on his approach, the Welsh producer says: ‘The mixes I make are the closest I’ve come to releasing albums, this mix is compiled of original tracks and edits’. It’s an intoxicating assemblage of heady House grooves and lo-fi R&B sample chops, get in to this special celebratory mix below in preparation for dJJ’s baby…
