S.Maharba – “Banu” mix for Error Broadcast
Was beyond stoked to hear last week from superb net label Error Broadcast that they were getting back up on their podcast game! This haunting mix comes from S.maharba, a relatively new producer on the scene who’s been making huge waves after his ASTOUNDING “Twin Sisters” mix for BTS Radio. The BTS radio mix is one of LGD’s favorite mixes of 2010 so far, and this one seems to be living up to it’s predecessor after the first listen.
For the fourth installation of our mixtape series, we are glad to welcome UK producer S.Maharba. The name is notoriously surrounded with fuzzy images of pin-up girls, however not much is known of the person behind this masquerade of 1970’s sex idols. His self titled debut was released in 2008 and turned a lot of heads worldwide, eventually being re-issued on vinyl byOcular Science.
S.Maharba’s tape for EB compiles the most adventurous beat music you can find to date. Dirty L.A. is featured with Juj, Kutmah, Durlin Lurt and Leaving Records boss MatthewDavid. AEED, ichiro_ and OL from our team make another appearance, as well as EB future wunderkind iL. UK stands tall with Kato, Young Montana? and shooting stars Forest Swords. Most tracks are condensed to the very essence, looped and blurred into each other while S.Maharba lavishly embraces everything from Progressive Rock to reverb-laden Ambient: this is what makes this mix one of the best we had in a long, long while.
Hit up Error Broadcast to stream on mixcloud and download the mix, and be sure to subscribe to their iTunes podcast while you’re at it!
