Mix Of The Day: Ian Blevins
When Shindig announced that they’d be returning to Newcastle Quayside site Spillers Wharf for a second ‘By Day, By Night’ event it’s fair to say it caused a fair amount of excitement here at DT HQ (we’re an excitable bunch, we know…) and gave us good reason to plan a jaunt up North.
Taking place over the Bank Holiday Weekend attracting a combined capacity of 15,000 on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd May we literally cannot wait to cut some shapes at the festivals various venues including two additional “BYNIGHT” club events at Shindig’s regular pop up home, Warehouse 34 on Hoults Yard.
Building upon the huge success of the last year 2015 sees Shindig incorporate a second day into the programming along with a series of affiliated satellite events across the city and the airwaves as the likes of Richie Hawtin, Annie Mac, Andhim, Hannah Wants, Andrea Oliva, Dubfire, Maceo Plex, Pete Tong and today’s Mix Of The Day contributor Ian Blevins roll into town.
If you made the annual pilgrimage to Ibiza last summer then you’re probably already familiar with the author of today’s mix of the day Ian Blevins, who is now ramping up his production game for 2015 by following up on his previous release on Keep It Zen Records with new EP for Future Boogie. His debut on the label, the Flapjacks EP sees Blevins hook up with Phil Moody under his Al Gobi alias for four melodic cuts we’re sure you’ll be hearing plenty of as the temperature begins to rise.
