Dummy Mix 476 // The Busy Twist

One of the stand-out staples of the vibrant South London club scene has served up the perfect antidote to 2016 with the first Dummy Mix of the year. Having produced tracks in Ghana, Columbia and London for the mix, The Busy Twist's selection and influences are just as far-reaching. From the Baile Funk scene in Brazil through to UK Garage, Funky and Bass soundscapes, the mix brings together the most colourful and exciting new club music from all over the world.

As Ollie from the group said over email “We want to bring people of different cultures, from other sides of the world, together – and dancing to the same beat.” That message was clear when, before sending off the mix to us, the boys packed the mix with some forthcoming exclusive heat from themselves, alongside enlisting group member and vocalist/percussionist Zongo Abongo to add hypercharged vocals over from Ghana.

With a live show featuring Zongo Abongo on the horizon and a slew of releases forged from Columbia due out later this year, The Busy Twist's 2017 is set to be as rowdy as this mix.
