...an insight into their musical mindset

Hypnotic house duo 6th Borough Project demand some dancefloor action with a taste of their ideal club set.

Both heralded as top-class solo producers in their own right, it’s hard to think that the collaborative efforts of deep disco and house warrior Graeme Clark (better known as The Revenge) and UK club veteran and respected selector Craig Smith could have been anything other than a sizzling success. Luckily for all, that’s exactly what happened. After their 2011 debut, ‘One Night in the Borough’, the duo have managed to find time amongst busy solo schedules to make another, equally enticing full-length, ‘Borough 2 Borough’, teeming with soulful house jams and sweaty disco grooves.

To get us all in the mood, 6BP have kindly put together a stellar DJ mix that offers an insight into their musical mindset when playing a show. The mix works through a free-flowing selection of low-slung grooves, tribal house cuts, spooky jazz-house jams and a few blissed-out, mellow moments to ease you back into the real world.

Here’s 6th Borough Project themselves to explain a little more about their selection.

“We wanted to take a snapshot of what we’d play in a set. Normally we like to play for as long as possible, starting slow and building it up. It doesn’t always work out that way depending on the line-up, venue, time constraints, etc. This mix gives a flavour of some of the stuff we’ve been playing out recently, amongst others. We cut up and extend lots of the stuff we play for our own use. The mix was recorded using our standard club setup, which is an E&S DJR400 mixer, Moog delay unit and three CDJs.”
