Tropical heat

MISTA MEN are three guys from the sub-tropics of Doncaster that make tropical house, funky and garage riddims. Going through their three pages of productions on soundcloud to pick tunes to showcase is no easy feet. First there's their release on New York based label Bass Tourist comprised of Lengthy riddim and a KILLER Hackman remix. Then there's Automatic Groove and Watermelon, released on Car Crash Set back in august. And finally there's their super limited white label release: RVRSE/Ashanting on NSA. Among their various unreleased productions I found Goin' on, a summery funky anthem made for playing as the sun's going down in July. Another favourite is their rerub of Drake's Light it up; Dischordant piano loops and snatches of Drake's vocals ride a skippy garage beat and a roller coaster of a sub bassline. Check the tracks, and if you want more you can catch Mella Dee (one of the trio) on Radio Frequency FM every friday evening 6 till 8.
