By all accounts 2013 was not only a great year for us, but for the AboutToBlow Guest Mix Series as it re-emerged triumphantly with a number of memorable mixes topping off what was undoubtedly a brilliant year for bass music. So starting like we mean to go on, for the first edition of 2014 we’re delighted to invite one of our favourite producer’s from last year to show us all exactly what he can do.
At the age of just 19, Dan Goadsby otherwise known Taneli first caught our attention with the ridiculously infectious ‘You’re The One’. Expertly deviating an SWV sample into a sublime summer anthem, It’s no coincidence that the Preston based producers ascent to recognition has run in conjunction with a year of great releases including the sumptuous ‘You’ EP that encapsulates the soulful echelons of House music perfectly.
Having dropped a series of records that showcased a effortless knack for producing breezy, groovy yet quality low-slung house, Taneli has opted to dip his toes between the more progressive side of house & techno for this guest mix. Whilst patience may initially be required, Taneli has curated a mix that not only offers plenty of quality tunes, but also reinforces the idea that perhaps techno’s boundaries aren’t so rigid after all.
Packed with tunes rife with nuance & subtlety, we’re expecting this man to be joining the big league very soon. For now you can enjoy the sounds below.
