We have a big mix coming at you today from Bristol bad man Guido. Done for Fact Magazine, this mix is packed full of exclusives from the likes of Joker, Baobinga, and Gemmy. The mix is nothing short of absolutely sick. Guido really showcases his skills at mixing throughout. As a producer, dj, and now record label boss, Guido’s made a name for himself across the bass music world. From his brilliant debut album, Anidea, to his recently started label State of Joy, Guido has consistently raised the bar. We highlighted the first release on State of Joy a few weeks back titled ‘Micro X/Vessel Dogs’ by none other than the big boss himself, and are excited to see further tunes released on this imprint. Make sure to listen for the After Light >>> Get Out My Head (Joker Remix) mix, it’s wicked.

Along with the mix here are a few tunes Guido’s been giving away for free. We really appreciate the eclectic style he brings to the table. His music is outside the boundaries of being labeled within just one genre. It’s creative, unique, well composed, and displays his fundamental skills as a songwriter. The first tune titled ‘U Neeq’, is unique no doubt. The tune has a really chilled out vibe, but is super danceable as well. The melodies put you into an almost trance like state. I’d imagine it’d be a sick tune to have jamming while on a nice drive. Grab it, it’s free!
The next tune is more upbeat, incorporating a combination of fast hitting snares and juggling drum beats. Of course in spot on Guido style, synths are layered throughout making the tune harmonious to listen to. What a jolly good fella to give it away for free.
The last freebie is one that he incorparted into his Fact mix above. The tune, titled ‘Ice Black’, is a collaboration with Baobinga. The tune definitely takes you on a journey, with beats constantly changing. It’s a worthwhile 3:40 of listening pleasure.
Always big up the artists. We bring this to you because we love what they do.
