Generic Mix #18: Greetings From Heads Up!

Generic Mix #18: Greetings From Heads Up!

Our friends at Generic Greeting have teamed up with our other friends at Heads Up! to bring us a hot new mix!

With previous mixes provided by Swedish techno hero Martin Ace, Berlin-based DJ duo Black Loops, Groovement’s Agent J, Bay Area rapper ISSUE, Eastern Bloc employee Kerrie, Norfolk crate-diggers Tropico and Norwegian-based Swede Oskar E (amongst quite a few others, this new mix makes #18), Generic Mix selectors Mørk and Big War have curated quite a list of contributors for the series over the past year!

This is what GG had to say about the new mix:

“This marathon 140 minute session from heroic crate digging collective and club night Heads Up! demonstrates how awe-inspiring and inspiring such mixes can be. Put together by residents Cutwerk, Jon Bevan, Adam Seed and Paul Owen the mixes spans an esoteric mix of eras, genres and sounds with a masterful flair that allows the music to flow in a meaningful and lucid way. There are forays into the dreamy states created by the likes of Eno & Hassell, Miles Davis and John Klemer balanced with soulful cuts from Zernell & Goodking and upfront party tracks from the Stones Throw label. The mix is an absolute pleasure from start to finish so indulge yourself in 2 hours of music from one of Manchester’s best club nights.”

As Heads Up! prepare for their next event, which will see them join foces with Flyin’ Easy Soul Club to bring NTS Radio’s Launette and Mi-Soul radio’s Patrick Forget to the basement of Manchester’s Whiskey Jar, this eclectic mix of vinyl gems has whet our appetite very nicely indeed!

With previous bookings including Matthew Halsall, Charlie Bones, David Barbarossa and Chris Read, I have personally been in attendance at a few Heads Up! jams and will personally vouch for their excellence! The next event on April 17th will feature sets from both lots of residents and looks to be a proper good one. Tickets start at £4 – check the Facebook event page for more info and pick up tickets over here.

The brilliant artwork has been created by a very talented friend of Generic Greeting, Jack McConnell. Influenced by altered states of consciousness, cave art and comics, follow more of his work on Twitter and Tumblr.
