So, for the 37th installment of the Strictly 140 Guest Mix series we have decided to involve an artist that bridges the small gap between grime and dubstep perfectly. We welcome Nights to the guest mix roster.
Nights is definitely someone who has impressed me countless times with release after release. His production style is the perfect concoction of both gritty industrial grime & hard hitting, sub-heavy dubstep.
He tends to mainly release his own productions on wax (with a few, rare exceptions). His most recent release which came out on his own imprint NSX was "Black Market Anthems Vol 1" and featured 4 absolute bangers. A particular favorite of mine on the release was the track "License to Kill," a very clever adaptation of a famous James Bond theme tune. He completely flipped it on its head into a beautiful piece of 140 BPM music. It is one of my favorite tracks from the past year if I'm being honest.
Nights guest mix was a very special one. He's really dug deep and brought to the table a lot of exclusive dubs & specials that he owns. Take the time to sit and listen through the full mix.
