DJ Olive – Let Us Live Mix

September 2nd, 2010 // No Comments // Posted by Lukas

This featured mix from percussionlab has the genre description: Roots & Acid, boards of africa, roof music, dub. I can only say this is one of the best, more chilled, seamlessly mixed eclectic dub and roots mix i´ve heard in a while (after the Black Family crew from good ol Portugal that is). Its interesting to see Burial, Mala and Kode9 mixed with Fat Freddys Drop and Boards of Canada. The extensive tracklist (after the jump) shows how much music is seamlessly squeezed into this great mixtape! Find out more about DJ Olive on his website.
Here´s the original description for the mix:

“Dub is about space. The space where guitars used to be, the space between beats, the space that echos create. DJ Olive absorbed this maxim in the 90’s, when you were still sucking pacifiers on the dancefloors of abandoned warehouses. He invented the term illbient, only to later claim the term was a joke. He’s one of the few dj’s successfully riding the line between in your face artistic expression and dancefloor palatability. from sound installations at Whitney Biennial, the Venice Biennale, and the Centre Pompidou in Paris, to freaking the bins at Dub War over the last few years, he’s both an entertainer and an educator.
This mix is a dub mix from a NYC originator – it’s about space, man. Light one up, lay back, and enjoy.”
