PS Selected: Sinjin Hawke + Zora Jones, sega bodega, Fresh Hex & more
Welcome back to our weekly segment where we pluck the best mixes from all over the web and the world, bundle em together and call it PS Selected. Whether it was whipped up last week or last year, if it’s worth listening to it’s bound to be featured as Holly O’Neill takes you through the hours and hours of quality mixes uploaded across the net by big and small selectors alike.
This week I’ve sourced a post-Valentine’s special featuring some of the loviest mixes that celebrate creative relationships and love of music. With the help of PANTEROS666 + INES ALPHA, SEGA BODEGA, BIANCA OBLIVION, SINJIN HAWKE + ZORA JONES and FRESH HEX, let’s go through these huge mixes inspired by the big L word
Cinematic club producer sega bodega has crafted a journey of a mix for Crack Magazine to celebrate the day of lurve. Filled with cheesy love songs, lowkey compositions and v-day memes, the mix also features a snippets of TV and movie characters professing love and heartbreak in their most special moments of intensity. Blended up into an emotive half hour, sega bodega has pieced together a collage of melodramatic romance that covers and inspires every approach to the feeling of love.
In his latest mix for Switch on FBi Radio, Melbourne producer Fresh Hex pens a love letter to the club experience. Hit play for a mix of wonky basslines, joyful breakdowns and unpredictable beats all blended to perfection in a highly curated mix. It’s a fantastical blend of rubbery club sounds that stretch and warp familiar rhythms of trap, house, and pop all the way to their extremes.
Panteros666 is a forward thinking producer and Ines Alpha is a forward thinking designer, and their collaborative project Hyperalliance brings their love of the futuristic (and each other) together. Their mix for Seoul Community Radio is chock full of hyperactive house, new millennium club sounds and trance inspired dance beats. It’s a huge party packed into an hour that highlights the creative strength of the duo, drawing from the best of the past in a way that carves the future of music and design.
London party Love Carnival loves the sounds of global bass, dancehall and tropical rhythms, and so does their recent headliner Bianca Oblivion. In her mix for the party the LA selector brings her best picks of baile funk, soca, reggaeton pop flips and hip moving carnival anthems building the energy over a half hour. Go from wining up on your new boo to tearing up the dance floor to spite your ex as the bpm inches up and up.
Club kid power couple Zora Jones and Sinjin Hawke show off the strength in their collaboration in their recent mix for Paper Mag. Together they shape their slick club odyssey featuring plenty of their own production, their own releases via joint imprint Fractal Fantasy and a pastiche of jersey, trap and grime. It’s a mind bending forty five minutes that proves couples that craft club music’s future together, stay together!
