Premiere: Fis' production mix for Tropical Waste

Fresh from releasing his new 'Iterations' EP for Tri Angle, New Zealand producer Fis is hitting Europe for the very first time, including a stopover in sunny Blighty.

Fis will be hitting the Dummy stage at The Jazz Café in Camden, London on Friday June 20th for this year's Camden Crawl, where he'll be joining Larry Gus, Puzzle, SOPHIE, Kuedo, and Laurel Halo. Before that, he'll be playing at The Waiting Room in Stoke Newington, London on Thursday (June 12th) for Tropical Waste, a new party started by the NTS Radio show and music blog of the same name.

Fis put together a short mix for Tropical Waste's most recent radio show. It ain't long, but for the uninitiated, it acts as a neat introduction to Fis' weird, wild sounds. While Drum Rain from his 'Iterations' EP and a remix of Perera Elsewhere's Carousel are both featured, the mix is mostly made up of unreleased dubs. Those new sounds are deep and heavy ("deep", in that it sounds submerged at the bottom of a lake, and "heavy", in that it makes you feel like there are breezeblocks around your feet) but often emotive and strangely groovy.

We're premiering the mix below. If you want to hear the full, two-hour radio show – which, besides Fis' mix, also features tunes selected by Debonair, IYDES, and Seb, all playing at the Tropical Waste party – then head over here.
