KYLE HALL - OATS B SO DEEP / FACT 55 MIX
Our ears here at the Ghetto Disco are always open to all kinds of music (I'm a big House, Techno & Electro fan, Joe is one of the deadliest Reggae selectors I know!) & we love anything as long as it's got that Funk & is saying something, in that spirit we'll be checking out stuff of that nature on this blog too - I.E. - Great music of ALL genres.
Recently I had the good fortune of stumbling across 18 year old Kyle Hall, Detroit's new star DJ / Producer who is currently making waves, as you are probably aware much is made of the Motor City's musical output & these days the city is bang on the money with some serious talent new & old. I know Hall has been around for a little while now & has some dope releases under his belt already on his own "Wild Oats" label & the Omar.S owned "FXHE" imprint as well as jamming with a certain mr Theo Parrish regularly, but like I said before .. I recently stumbled upon him. So excuse me if i'm a little late to the party!
Today I wanted to highlight a couple of wicked mixes by Kyle that I found while trawling the web, one from a blog "Cathode Radiance", called "Oats B so deep" & it's a killer, you can grab it HERE. Make sure you pass through & check out the rest of the blog & give 'em some props too!! The 2nd mix he did is on London based FACT magazine's website - both are pure quality!! Kyle keeps it moving with some seriously deep, soulful tracks on the mixes with selections from some of "The D"s premier talent (Moodymann, Omar.S, Carl Craig, Theo Parrish, Mike Clark, 3 Chairs & Andres (DJ Dez) all show up), in short, they're blinding mixes from one of the best DJ's i've heard in a long time ... go get em!!
I've also included some Youtube action which ain't too shabby either of Kyle jammin' in the hallways of Detroit's School of Arts & the studio with his keyboard, killing it on the Lo-Fi freestyle tip (bear in mind, he's 18 years old!)!!
