For it’s 16th (!!!) release, Dixon Avenue Basement Jams continues to bolster it’s local infantry with fresh, new blood, this time with the addition of a young but well-seasoned individual hailing from the hinterland of greater Glasgow and going by the name of Big Miz. If you happen to live within an 8 mile radius of a Blue Lagoon, the chances are you will have already been acquainted with the bold Miz, most likely through the longstanding and legendary clubnight/crew he’s a resident & founding member of: Offbeat. The length & breadth of Offbeat’s tastes also reflects his flexibility as a producer. Tracks presented here, such as “Good Thing” strike a fine balance between good ol’ Motor City funk and Chi-Town oddities such as Vincent Floyd’s more obscure cuts on D.M, while the velocity increasing “Solange” comes like the result of a three-day Theo studio session fuelled by bad speed. His talent for catering to the dance has clearly paid dividends when it comes to his productions, with the nuance and instinctive touch he presents us with on his debut DABJ 12” clearly marking him from the start line as an already formidable & stand-out force in the heady and increasingly cramped world of house & techno.
