Podcast 141: Matt Shadetek

XLR8R has an unofficial rule that we never let artists do our podcast twice. The way we see it, there are just too many fine DJs, producers, and artists out there for us to start running repeats. Yet we're willing to make an exception for Matt Shadetek, not just because we love his Brooklyn-based blends of gully beats and bass-loaded riddims from around the globe, but also because last year's excellent Full Hundred mixtape with Jahdan Blakkamoore was more of a showcase of the latter's talents—Shadetek was simply the guy stringing the beats together while Blakkamoore's dancehall croon shined through. Now that Shadetek has an album of his own on the way—Flowers, which drops next week on the Dutty Artz imprint he runs with DJ /rupture—we figured that it was time for the limelight to shine directly on him. Luckily for everyone, he comes correct with a banging mix that perfectly captures the Dutty Artz spirit; there's dancehall, UK funky, grime, unreleased gems, and plenty of Shadetek's own productions too. Tune in and get dutty.

Basically DRT sampled/remixes ratatat and then Boogaloo Crew remixed them which is what I played. Unfortunately I am not able to identify each sample in each tune so I just use the credit given on the track I played. Thanks for listening closely!
