For those residing in the British Isles (hiya), you may have noticed a yellow, shiny thing in the sky this past week or two. Do not be alarmed – instead, queue up this mix from emerging Bristolian, Jack Priest. The 43rd in SlothBoogie’s Guestmix series, this set comes off the back of some funner-than-fun edits on Wolf + Lamb’s imprint (‘Don’t You Want Me’, anyone?) and it’s the perfect soundtrack to that overly-optimistic day party you’ve organised this weekend. Everyone will get really into it just as you’re transferring the sodden jerk chicken from the barbecue to the oven. 👌
Anyway, Mr Priest says his taste ‘leans towards slower burning, genre sidestepping electronic music’ and his sets contain ‘abstruse pop records, melodic voyages and stories for the heartsore.’ But this time he has largely eschewed the introspection in favour of wall-to-wall summer vibes. And who can blame the man?
