Ryan Hemsworth Contributes The FADER Mix
Fader mixes have become synonymous with “the jump” in recent years, from LOL Boys’ sound/year defining effort to the major www introduction to Samo Sound Boy and Body High, many a DJ has separated themselves from the aspiring masses. Ryan Hemsworth is the latest and greatest to contribute to the series and threw together a much talked about tracklist that includes Broken Social Scene (edited with Flocka) seamlessly tied in with Boys II Men and the latest hip hop inspired electronic music (or the other way around if you prefer). It’s eclectic to say the least, but we’ve come to expect that from the Wedidit prankster and most importantly, it works. Shlohmo’s “Out Of hand” (off of the upcoming Laid Out EP) is mashed up with Spaceghostpurrp’s “Osiris Of The East” and then transitioned perfectly into a slowed take on Nosaj Thing’s “Snap”. The last half of the mix appears to be comprised of the tactful pop Hemsworth is either listening to at the moment or has derived some of his sensibilities from. Contemporary acts Chrome Sparks and RAJA appear, as do classique acts like Bjork and Depeche Mode. We can’t predict when (because it’s definitely a when) Hemsworth will emerge from the internet cocoon and into full-blown stardom, but it might just be one or two more mixes like this.
