We start off our Mixer series with two regulars in the Harley. Al Zanders (aka Lodger), a Banana Hill regular, now has a string of releases under his belt on Stamp Records. They've received some serious support from big names in the scene. By our predictions 2016 will be a big year for this guy. Thrillhouse curator Smorsli is now a regular fixed name on line ups all over Sheffield partly thanks to the reliability in forward thinking bookings from Thrillhouse. Often playing together in a live setting they've collaborated here to bring just over an hour of smooth house rollers. We sat down with them to talk about their mix.
"We recorded this mix last month at Alex’s, it’s a collection of records we’ve enjoyed playing out together. Starting quite happy and soulful, and eventually we brought up the tempo and finished on the sort of techno we’d play at somewhere like Hope Works. Recently, we’d been given the opportunity to do a few back-to-back sets, which has been pretty fun, so tried to incorporate that as well.
"We’re involved in a few gigs coming up in Sheffield that we wanted to mention. The next Thrillhouse on February 20th is with Tessela at The Harley, and Sam will be playing some stuff there. Alex also has a few gigs coming up across the UK in Oxford, Bristol, and Edinburgh, so that’s exciting. Alex has a lot of forthcoming tracks ready for 2016, it’s a bit early to say much more than that but keep an eye out! Lastly, we’ve got another Radar Radio show being aired in the next few weeks, with a killer Tall Black Guy mix!"
