New Drum & Bass mix: Kongkast # 184 – feat. KEEN (Label head of Demand Records / Zurich, Switzerland)
Happy Year of the Snake!
First off, we at Kongkretebass would like to say “Kung Hei Fat Choy” to all of our listeners in Asia! We just had our Lunar New Year a couple of days ago, and this year, we welcome the Year of the Snake! So may this year be filled with Happiness, Good Health, Plenty of Wealth and Loads of Great Music!
To start things off the Year of the Snake, we are very excited to bring you this rolling mix by one of my personal favoriate Drum & Bass Labels in the last couple of years – KEEN (Label head of Demand Records / Zurich, Switzerland).
Having picked up on their first release featuring previous Kongkast guests, BTK “Things I do” with SpectraSoul remix on the flip, it was only natural progression for us to keep an eye out on a newly founded label. Our regular listeners would know that we are supporters of another previous Kongkast guest from Japan – HEAVY1 (Tokyo, Japan) who emerged through Demand Records excellent release – Xiphactinus.
Don’t forget to check out Demand Records’ latest release featuring Andy Pain & Z Connection – Outsider b/w Persistence Of Memory.
Many thanks to Keen and Demand Records for this exclusive mix! We look forward to more great music from the label!
