So not only did SKisM grace us with arguably one of the best mixes of all time for NSD100, he seems to have done it, again, in the same year with NSD Vol 5 Mix. We tip our hat to the guys over at Never Say Die – they certainly know how to build up hype and excitement.
One thing we love about the mixes is the meticulously constructed introductions that seem to have a deeper meaning. SKisM had this to say about the mix:
“Out of all the mixes I’ve done this one feels the most like a musical journey to me – peaks, troughs, breathing space and moments that will make you want to punch a baby in the face.”
Punch a baby in the face indeed! I nearly volleyed my laptop about 41 times in just the first 3 minutes of the mix. What makes SKisM so good? The fact he practically invented the modern dubstep scene in the UK. When you’ve been curating music for this long – you should have a good indication of what’s good.
We’re looking forward to seeing what the tracklist for the actual compilation is, but for now we’ll just have to hit repeat on the mix until we figure out what all those IDs are…
