Now Playing : FACT mix 587: Seekersinternational
FACT's latest mix is so good! Now Playing at DNO Records, and shared on the DNO Soundcloud
Here's the full write-up from FACT:
Seeker than your average.
Based in Richmond, British Colombia and emerging from the ‘90s Filipino mobile DJ crew explosion, Seekersinternational (or SKRS, or SKRSINTL) appeared on our radar in 2012 after they released their debut album proper, The Call From Below, on the now-mythical Digitalis label.
The LP was a revelation, highlighting the collective’s ability to refract dub reggae through a cracked, rose-tinted lens, offering a more ambient take on Pole’s glitchy dubwise experiments or Rhythm & Sound’s hallowed versions. Since then they’ve charted rougher territory, last year attacking ragga and jungle with the outstanding RaggaPreservationSociety (one of FACT’s favorite albums of 2016) and rewiring the often-maligned lovers’ rock genre on LoversDedicationStation.
Seekersinternational’s debut FACT mix is equally as wide-reaching, blending original dubs with essential snippets of dancehall, pop, reggae, hardcore, dub, disco, house and Skepta’s ‘That’s Not Me’. More than just a mix, this feels like an archaeological dig through Seekersinternational’s bottomless cave of influences, pulling us through their world in a flurry of edits, blends and original tracks. Phew.
