Some quality tracks in this one from Eelke Kleijn including some vocals from Jennifer Lawrence and Ezra Koenig.
“For this mix I wanted to keep a nice vibe going between underground house music and some more recognisable records and classics,” Kleijn tells THUMP. “I also used my brand-new bootleg of “The Hanging Tree” by James Newton Howard ft. Jennifer Lawrence.” The mix maintains an air of underground moodiness throughout and gives all the tracks a chance to breathe. The control of vibe is masterful and the patience of his selections is noteworthy.
Really nice laid back set by Egypt’s Hisham Zahran for Bespoke Musik Radio. I’m not too keen on the first track but the set doesn’t take too long to get going.
Guy Mantzur always gets the balance right between deep and melodic. Well worth a listen.
Can you tell us about the days when you met Guy J and Sahar. The 3 of you have been close friends for a long time now, was it the music that got you guys together not just as friends but also a mutual respect and admiration that made the 3 of you collaborate in your careers too?
Yes we are really close friends. I know Sahar for more than 15 years, from the Tel Aviv scene. I always loved him as a Dj and one day we decided we should try doing something together and we just couldn’t stop. I met Guy J through Sahar and getting to know Guy brought out the same feelings. The feeling you have with someone whose going to stay a close friend for the rest of my life. Same as Sahar.
