PIRI PIRI: AN INTRODUCTION by J. ZOOMBA
This mix is the outcome of a beautiful email (below) sent to DRUMZ from a young man called J. ZOOMBA. Hailing from Spain and recently transported to South London, he wrote to tell us that amongst other things, he believes we have similar taste in music…he wasn’t wrong.
Noteably, the tracklist features artists such as Canblaster, Jamie George, French Fries & Riffs and is riddled with earworms, that I for one, have had the pleasure of feeling at some brilliant Youngunz, Club Cheval & Night Slugs nights here in Paris where D.O.T.S is currently based.
As well as being a sonic postcard of current Friday & Saturday bass orientated dancefloors, this mix is also an exciting indication of what to expect from J Zoomba’s new audio-visual night of the same name - PIRI PIRI, set to hit South London’s Amersham Arm’s on April 2. Expect great things.
Here’s the original email from J Zoomba :
I’m 22, London born, but was brought up in Spain where I started the first international Dubstep/Bass Culture nights about 4 years ago. Back then they didn’t have a clue how to take it (like most), but we kept on pushing and now its one of the main urban nights in the country.
We’ve managed to bring all types of bass heads, from Martelo and Redlight through to The Heatwave, Congo Natty, Foreign Beggars, Baobinga……… most of them for the first time in the south of Spain (we were based in Granada).
I’ve just moved back to south London a few months ago and have been working on a fresh take on the UK bass scene with a few like minded producers, trying to incorporate the Latin influence as much as we can.
