When we asked Chrissy to provide a mix for our series, there was no guessing to what it would sound like. Chrissy’s knowledge of music goes above and beyond what I could ever dream of having tapped into the world of house, ghettotech, footwork, jungle, hardcore, disco and more. He is credited for organising one of the first international tours for footwork dancers and founded the juke/footwork label Loose Squares. Through this mix, Chrissy looks back to those days, powering through an insane amount of tracks in one hour.

“I wanted to go back to my roots, and the juke/ghettotech scene I ran in back in the ’00s,” Chrissy says. “The DJ style in that world was always so distinctive: high BPMs, lots of sped-up records, a mix of new and old, a free-wheeling approach to genre, and really rapid-fire mixing, with a new track coming in every minute or two. It’s been a long time since I’ve regularly played out in this style, and it felt good to record a mix getting back into this vibe”
