Earmilk Presents: Weekend Selector WKND11 – Meech

Feb 24 2012

Toronto based Meech is a member of the Discobelle Records family and he just dropped the spectacular “I Want EP” on our friendly neighbors in Demento Mori.

Last week he curated the Weekend Selector mix series for premier blog Earmilk, and they also posted this interview.

Here’s how they describe the mix:

“The weekend opens up with jaunty bongos laid atop a casual deep house groove via Jens Bond only to carry on to a moving soul performance by fellow beatniks Prince Club and a tribute to the recently passed Loleatta Holloway. Stacking lines of cultured percussion the entire mix is polished with a lush coat of foreign drum hits and imported one shots. The tape reaches a high note when Meech cues up the original mix of “I Want”, and rightly so. The track pulls out a clean set of piano keys to satiate a thirst for classic house luxury. Elegance is what this gentlemen stands for and as the minutes continue to run down, Meech serves up more enticing dishes like David Keno’s full course bassline in “Wait for More”, an unforgiving spicey remix by Kenny Dope, and the grubby leftovers of the legendary Green Velvet’s collaboration with Kid Sister. Overall it cuts out to be a filling mixtape, with just the right zest to bring out a craving for conversating and of course the mood to get down and boog.”
