5 minutes with Whole Sick

This saturday we are joined by Whole Sick at the Meter. So in preparation we asked him for five minutes of his time to get to know the fast rising DJ a little more.
Whole Sick Press shot
The tunes you have been working on recently with Tomb Crew, Breathe and I Go Sick in particular, have dancehall influences. What’s your favourite dancehall tune?

Hard to pin one down, but I’ll say Sizzla – Scream, love how raw it sounds, like a call to arms.

You have djed at countless festivals and parties from Snowbombing to your residencies at Kool Kids Klub and My City. What is your ultimate floor filler?

When I’m up against it, Mr. Oizo – Flatbeat always comes through for me, everybody knows it and as that bassline just thunders through the room, you can’t help moving.

What is the tune you think is under-rated and you wish more people would appreciate?

I don’t know if it’s underrated, or if I just didn’t hear it played out much, but I absolutely love Roisin Murphy – Momma’s Place (Heavyfeet Remix). Heavyfeet productions are always on point and this is an absolutely killer tune for starting a party.

What can we expect from your HDD set on Saturday?

Really hyped to come down and play after hearing amazing things from your previous guests. You’ll get my usual frantic tune selection, house and garage are always on the cards, it’s music to make you dance, not think to hard.

What else can we expect from you in the future?

Out next is Drums of Death – Venice Beach (Whole Sick Remix) on 9th April, after that I’ve just wrapped up my ‘Do The Do’ EP for Sounds of Sumo which should be out in May. There’s an EP to come on Four40 Records, and some new collaborations with Tomb Crew and Morcee in the pipeline. I’ll be out at Snowbombing next week and in Ibiza this summer, other than that just keeping busy writing new music and playing UK shows.

World Carnival #2

Hipsters Dont Dance World Carnival #2 Mix

7 months after our first World Carnival mix we are back with the sequel. This mix spans not only our musical influences but represents the sound of our heritage. The music that this generation of diasporas (Trinidad and Nigeria in particular) are making. So we have music from countries as diverse as Ghana, Trinidad, UK, France, Nigeria, Portugal and Germany amongst others. For us combing genres such as Soca, Azonto, House and Tropical Bass is natural and something that we have nurtured through our club night. We wanted to replicate the sounds we know are orignating from carnivals in Port of Spain, Calabar and London. We hope that you enjoy this mix, this is what we believe is our World Carnival.
