Although Henry Krinkle stands some 4,000 miles away from what is considered to be the epicenter of UK Bass music, his sound has defied the distance, oozing a Post-Dubstep vibe very reminiscent of early pioneers James Blake and Mount Kimbie. When asked to describe his music he calls it “an eclectic balance of headphone storytelling and dance floor sweat“, citing 1997 -Homework and Vegas as his biggest Electronic influence. Back in February we found his Future-RnB track Back To Me, and ever since our ears have stayed glued. The 2-Step/Garage tribute to Whitney Houston and the bootleg of Lucky Paul’s Thought We Were Alone (which we featured back in June) are two highlights, which we urge you to check out.
Our sixth mix is a fluorescent voyage through lush beats and arcane frequencies, teeming with post-night-club fervour. When asked what influenced the composition of the mix, Mr Krinkle put it down to “a combination of my friends and the amazing community on Soundcloud. Also, in a more general sense, the whole UK Post-Dubstep/Garage/Bass situation has really been a big part of my life the last couple years“. The mix flows meticulously from start to finish, and we’re not exaggerating when we say every track is an outright banger. Highlights for us have to be Henry’s remix of James Blake’s bedroom-anthem CMYK and Owsey’s remix of Birdy’s Skinny Love. To top it off the mix is sprinkled with snippets of film samples, one from Taxi Driver (Henry Krinkle being an alias for the iconic vigilante-loner Travis Bickle from the cult classic). Future plans for Henry consist of an album of original tracks slated for a summer release, in the mean time he’s put out a free EP of remixes on his Bandcamp that you’ve gotta check out. Enjoy the mix!
