For the eleventh installment of our Leisure Mix Series, Amsterdam’s Gijs Poortman, better known as G-String, delivers a hard-driving tour through a self-described, “deep outer space techno mix.” Recorded in his personal studio on two SL1200′s, a mixer, and a pair of CDJ’s with some effects, this mix effectively blends two worlds. A balancing act of pounding, funky percussion and bright chords, paired with the menacing depth the M>O>S camp is famous for. Paradise’s Deep Groove’s masterpiece “I Love” guides you with whispers of an unknown future over disintegrating, robotic textures, setting the tone for one of Leisure’s most memorable podcasts.
G-String, Aroy Dee, and Ma Spaventi will release a new EP entitled Black Rain under their R-A-G pseudonym sometime in May on Amsterdam’s MOS Deep imprint. An upcoming full-length from Gij’s Crystal Maze project will surface sometime soon on aDepth Audio. There are also rumours of a forthcoming release for a new sub-label of Rotterdam’s Clone Records. We’ll let you know when we know more.
