Impey
It's an all-vinyl selection from the Astral Black guru...

Impey has been a key figure in underground music for some time now, a DJ who can move from grime to hip-hop, from left-leaning beats all the way to commercial party-starters.

Through his associations with Astral Black and his own Ghost Notes label the producer has built a slim but potent catalogue, fixating on the more future-facing end of the digital spectral.

Always up for working with new talent, Impey's sets are often a gateway of sorts, matching all-out bangers to sounds you simply haven't heard before.

Set to play the Clash x Astral Black party in London's Ace Hotel tonight (July 25th) we asked the DJ if he'd compile a mix for us, something different to the norm.

"Compiled with vinyl from bargain bins across the country... alongside my mum's record collection" this is a biting selection of 80s funk and soul, including some stone cold classics from Donald Byrd, 52nd Street, SOS Band, and Bootsy Collins.

As ever there's a few left field diversions along the way, including a mystery track... no prize for figuring it out, mind you, but we would be impressed.
