Podcast 165: Bok Bok

Of all the figures in the post-dubstep diaspora, few have been as instrumental as Bok Bok. As most readers of XLR8R probably know, the London-based producer/DJ is also the co-founder of the Night Slugs imprint, which has quickly established itself at the top of the heap when it comes to the forward-thinking house and bass music that continues to spring forth from the UK's long-running hardcore continuum. His place in the canon of UK dance music aside, it's worth mentioning that Bok Bok (a.k.a. Alex Sushon) is also a highly skilled DJ who is just as likely to pull out a classic house or grime tune as he is a futuristic dubplate. As such, we've been hounding him for the past year to put together an exclusive mix for the XLR8R podcast, and he's come through in fine style, littering his mix with unheard gems from Night Slugs brethren (Girl Unit, Jam City, Optimum), fellow UK heavy hitters (Geeneus, Ikonika, Untold, Terror Danjah), and a few unexpected jams that still go down smooth—after all, it's hard to argue with kwaito, Dam-Funk, or Azari & III in any mix.

01 DJ Gazzeto "Cruel 22"
02 Egyptrixx "Liberation Front" (Night Slugs)
03 FaltyDL "St. Marks (Cosmin TRG Remix)" (Rush Hour)

06 Jam City "Magic Drops" (Night Slugs)

11 Fis-T x Wookie "Down On My Night Hunter (Martelo Edit)"
12 D1 "ET"
13 Girl Unit "IRL (Bok Bok Remix)" (Night Slugs)
14 Terror Danjah "Minimal Dub" (Hyperdub)
15 Jam City "Aqua Box" (Night Slugs)
16 Optimum "Broken Embrace" (Night Slugs)
17 Slimzee vs. Geeneus "Log Off" (Dumpvalve)
18 Azari & III "Indigo Dub" (Turbo)
