When it comes to drum and bass names don’t get bigger than DJ Marky. For the past 20 years or so, the Brazilian artist’s been thrilling crowds from Bangkok to Brisbane with his signature brand of hi-octane rattlers and whooshing bass-heavy rollers.
He’s also been a lovely dinner companion to THUMP in the past so when he offered us an exclusive mix—a tantalizing taste of what anyone spending their NYE at the RAM party at the Brixton Academy, where he’ll be playing alongside Sub Focus, High Contrast and more—we nearly bit his hand off.
We obviously didn’t do that because we have a modicum of restraint and self-respect, so you can enjoy the mix below safe in the knowledge that Marky’s still got both hands. We’re all winners!
Excellently mixed journey from light-footed, high quality liquid to heavy rollers with a sprinkle of forgotten oldies, this one is very well crafted from the top to the very last drop.
