The Tombs vs. Kat Fyte October Mix!

Tombs and Kat Fyte, both born and raised in and around Boston, Mass., have been collaborating in various experimental sound projects since the formation of a now defunct noise-thrash hardcore four-piece that mashed-up suburban basements and high-school auditoriums.

The October mix, hopefully the first in a long line of collaborative efforts between these two young DJs, is a mashed-up, irreverent, yet focused work of sonic surrealist pop art that attempts to chart the continuities between seemingly disparate genres, locations, subcultures, and decades. It is a showcase of all of the divergent styles of bass-music that have influenced the duo as DJs, producers, cultural critics, and consumers, including anthemic roots-reggae gems, brash, heavy "dubblestep," and unruly dancehall bangers from the UK, the United States, and the Carribean. Engaging with diverse cultural references from the vast constellation of contemporary party music, the duo keeps both bedroom and dancefloor listeners on their toes with selections that seem to come out of nowhere but fit like a glove in the mix.
