OEJ Mixtape V - selected by Infestus a.k.a. DJ Downrock
Infestus a.k.a. DJ Downrock or, as his mum calls him, Luís Pinto is the man behind the wheel on this thrilling new addition to the OEJ mixtape series. This Setúbal-based beatsmith, originally from Lisbon, made a hectic and varied path of his own that includes electronic hip hop instrumentals, a deep love for drum & bass raves, his deep house debut record, countless productions that explore the grey area between Dubstep and Garage and, in recent ears, the passionate discovery of early UK Hardcore, Breakbeat Rave and his own messing around with the more stripped-down and direct rhythm structures of Grime.
With this mixtape he shows that his own continuous search for new influences isn't at all slowing down, as he mixes up acidic Rave, early Trance, EBM and the dance-side of Industrial and Post-Punk into a continuous discharge of compulsive, entrancing dance music.
His new release "Lost Bangers" dropped very recently on our label One Eyed Jacks and was described by legendary writer and passionate thinker of Rave culture Simon Reynolds as being "like a mash-up of Todd Terry and Human Resource with a smidge of 93-Reinforced". Another key scribe of everything dance-music, Philip Sherburne, picked up "Dopamine Rush", from "Lost Bangers", as one of his Dance Tracks of The Week for SPIN's website, presenting it with a great enthusiastic review.
