Midweek Mantra Mix 024: DRRTYWULVZ releases first all-original mix
Wednesday is humpday, which not only marks the halfway point between the work week and the coveted weekend, but also Conscious Electronic’s Midweek Mantra Mix (M3). We’ve been scouring the web’s most enlightening bass music mixes that align with our vision, to provide “a conscious way to consume dance music.” M3 spotlights both veteran and up-and-coming bass music artists whose music seeks to raise the vibrations of their collective listener base.
Austin-based producer Levi Witt has something special to offer the world of music. Known around town as DRRTYWULVZ, he’s gain a reputation for fusing an enormous swath of styles together, blending together everything from dubstep, halftime, neuro, drum and bass, and many more genres in his captivating sets. Seen performing at conscious gatherings like Oregon Eclipse and Envision Festival, Witt has left his mark on many a dusty dance floor with no sign of slowing down.
One of the important facets of a Midweek Mantra feature is a mixtape’s ability to bring something original to the table. Those music creators who spend their time boldly innovating and sharing it with the world deserve recognition for what can be an intensely illuminating listening experience. Accessing the vulnerability necessary to open the heart of your creation up to an audience is a powerful, and yet difficult, thing to do.
In this mix, simply titled “Mixtape 002,” DRRTYWULVZ does exactly that. It’s an hour packed with completely original music, spanning multipliticous genres, while calling up a singularly unique voice to light the entire pathway. Psychedelic bass music blends with downtempo, ramping back up into more intense styles like glitch hop, neurofunk, and more experimental bass.
It’s the spirit of originality and experimentation that is at the heart of this mix series. Any music that allows space for the mind to be free and the body to be present deserves to be praised. Witt’s selection of all-original tunes certainly lives up to that standard. Exploring new trails, playing with new and unheard sounds, while guiding listeners on a “deep adventure through sound,” DRRTYWULVZ is this week’s Midweek Mantra Mix.
