GUEST MIX: Borai
For close to a decade now, Boris English (aka Borai) has been behind the scenes crafting his trade and soaking up knowledge of the culture like a sponge. DJ’ing for over 10 years, apprenticing at a mastering house, and collaborating multiple times with the acclaimed, DJ October - Borai has finally come around to putting out his own solo work, ‘Moonlight on the Malago’. Released just a few weeks ago on the new Chicago-based imprint, Tasteful Nudes, the EP is one of astounding maturity and knowledge. It is extremely humbling and bewildering that such a talent would lend his time to us to cater the 24th installment to our Guest Mix series. Packed with personal favorites, and unreleased tracks that are soon to be highly renowned, Borai’s mix is a flawless and refined piece of work. Take the time to listen all the way through, you won’t regret it.

T_A_M & Zubuntu - Power Cologne
Forthcoming to Sabacan Records of Japan, two Tuffwax affiliates have banded together to produce an EP of an intriguing nature. Mystic sounding almost, but also rife with juke sentiments. Power Cologne is a piece that even if you don’t understand a single element involved, you’ll still catch yourself bobbing your head sporadically. It’s a different sound to say the least, and in a scene where similarities are all to consistent, it’s refreshing and encouraging to see that other sounds and ideas are being explored so confidently. Keep tabs on the two of them, via Soundcloud.
Wilroy - Everybody Copes With
Another solid submission from a talented, Liverpool-based, producer - Wilroy. Heavily focused on stuttering percussion, vocal R&B samples, and a garage-sound seemingly veteran, “Everybody Copes With” is a tune worthy of repeats. Starting off a bit choppy, it begins to make sense as the song progresses, becoming a discerningly coherent production. We’d highly suggest you pay attention to what this up-and-comer does in the near future. Stream more, and download this bit for free, via Soundlcoud.
