After their set at Synergy, I noticed Kevin from Mix n Blend was parked right behind and we ended up chatting. He let me know about this EP that they have just released. This is the first of a 2 series EP from the guys at Mix n Blend with some very cool collaborations with other local artists. The first EP is called “Joy”.
The first EP features two SICK tracks, which have absolutely blown my mind at both RTD 2010 and Synergy last weekend. Funnily enough, a mate of mine told me about 2 weeks ago that Mix n Blend made a track called Narona featuring Bosko (Bosko is the guy that runs Narona, one of the greatest restaurants in Gardens – CT) and I thought he was joking. I know Bosko has been in a band previously but then you could only imagine my excitement when I saw the track on this EP titled Narona featuring Bosko. It was no joke. This is one seriously sick track. Mix n Blend throw down their trademark, high energy drum n bass along with Bosko playing the guitar through out the track. The sound of the guitar blends so nicely into the fast paced driving drum n bass riffs by Mix n Blend. This is a very nice collaboration! The second track on the EP is another high energised, fast paced drum n bass banger with vocals by Gugulethu’s one and only Crosby. Mix n Blend call this a ‘feel good’ track and I can understand why. I played this song 3 times in a row… Enough of what I think, take a listen for yourself and enjoy!

OH MY GOODNESS – That line up is an exact replica of Synergy’s Drum n Bass DJs on Friday night. Every single one of the DJ’s excluding Mix n Blend (who killed Saturday) were apart of the mayhem that ensued on that Friday evening. Oh man, this is going to get very crazy.
If you haven’t heard it and feel like getting amped, take a listen to Mix n Blend’s set from Rocking The Daisies 2010
