FirstSecond Label - Dublins Future Sounds

This all encompassing label is doing some pretty big things, with a couple of top notch releases thus far and the forthcoming compilation album the future looks bright for this young label. Taking in everything from the world of electronic music and some quality hip hop for good measure, all they have put out so far is well worth your time, here are some of my personal favourites : 

Lecs Luther - Luther by FirstSecond Label

Luke B. - Drive U Home (clip) (Forthcoming on First Second Label) by FirstSecond Label

Street Tropic (clip) by Boya

_Dilemma by A_T_L_A_S

Teishi-1 Primal by Teishi-1

03 TWENTY by Rosbeg

Nexx Guest Mix 001 : Deletia

The first installment in the Nexx Guest Mix series is here!

Liam Griffin is a man from Galway who looks like a boy. A hyper sensitivity to low frequencies and access to Atlantic 252 when he was even younger-looking resulted in a permanent obsession with strange electronic music. When he isn't writing for Stomp Mag Liam can usually be found in the corners of badly lit night-clubs mumbling to himself about the socio-political importance of dance culture while spilling other people's drinks on himself. More of his mixes can be found here: deletia.

Liam has also been experimenting with production lately, check the results below..

So here it is, the first of the mix series, I could ramble on about track selection, mixing etc. but I think it's better if you just listen.... Full tracklist on the Nexx Soundcloud, also any followers are appreciated!
