Advent Day 13 – Dovetail: Beats from the Roots Mix
Sam Warren is someone lots of people know in the breakbeat scene and beyond. She DJs under the Dovetail name and we approached her to do something for us for the advent days of xmas and she responded by supplying a mix of her two passions. On the one hand a lot of the tunes she has chosen are women producers which is a project she works a lot on – being a professor at Portsmouth University and running a project there called In The Key Of She which looks at the lack of gender diversity among electronic music producers in conjunction with her Songs in the Key of She Radio shows on Thread Radio.
The other side of the mix is her love for small independent record labels hence the title Beats from the Roots (as in grassroots) and has a whole heap of LSM’s favourite producers. The whole mix is chunky, funky and as fit as a monkey. Put it in your stocking for Xmas and be dancing until New Year.
