519 – GotSome
GotSome is UK producer and DJ extraordinaire Adam Gorsky, a man who has been on an upward trajectory since his arrival on the international circuit in 2014. In an amazingly short space of time, he has clocked up a series of achievements and career highlights that place himone step ahead of most of his peers and affirm his position as the leader of a new generation of talented British producers.
Adam’s skills have already spawned a slew of bass-heavy, dance floor destroyers including ‘Bassline’, championed by Radio 1’s B.Traits and Annie Mac. He recently collaborated with the ‘Godfather of grime’ Wiley to produce ‘Vibe Out’, which was signed to Chase & Status’ inimitable label MTA Records. The ‘Tell You Why’ EP came out through Monki’s label Zoo Records and his track ‘Colours’ appeared on UKF’s ‘Bass House’ compilation. He has also dropped a succession of equally lauded, bombastic productions including; ‘If You Wanna’ (with Tazer), ‘Move It Back’ (with AC Slater) and ‘Run Di Dance’, and a plethora of remixes for big-name talent including Basement Jaxx, Róisín Murphy and the likes of Craig David with many more to come.
GotSome is a force to be reckoned with whose sharp rise shows no signs of letting up, we’ve asked him to put together this years Christmas Day Special Mix for you and wow did he deliver! So for all those that with new tech in your Christmas Presents, here’s a brand new banging mix to blast out, for all those that are stuffed full of turkey and need to try out those new headphones, this is for you too! and for those that just need some time away from the family already, shame on you…. but here’s an hour of bliss for you too.
Happy Christmas from all of us at Data Transmission!
Sum up this podcast in 10 words…
Live tribal drums & bass hailing from Bristol with an African and Brazilian twist.
What’s your personal favourite track on it?
I have two favourite tunes in this mix
1. is called Boeke – ‘Favala’ which is a new project from myself & Gav (Loadstar)
2. is a track from new producer Arma called ‘Jungle Drums’.
Both massive tunes that are doing damage on the dance floor right now.
What’s the special ingredient in this mix?
The special ingredients in my mix are pure NRG & Vibes. Its a perfect mix to put on after Christmas Lunch and dance around the house like a nutter or before you head out to party on NYE!!
What’s the best gig you’ve played recently?
I’ve had so many great gigs this year. Maybe the best of my recent gigs was playing the End of term party at The Tuesday Club in Sheffield. I played alongside The Jungle (The Band) & garage genius Zed Bais & my host Inja. The show was off the chain had a full house right till the very last tune. The ravers didn’t seem to care about the 9am Wednesday lecture.
What have you got coming up?
I’ve got loads of things coming up for next year. I’m bringing a new single out on Danny Howard’s label at the start of the year which features one of Basement Jaxx’s singers called Lisa Kekaula. The tune is called ‘ I dont know who you think you are’ hold tight for more information on that.
Im also putting an EP out on Mark Knight’s new label called Love & Others. Again this should be coming in the first couple of months on the year. So keep your ears to the ground…
And finally, do you have a special message for our readers?
2016 has been a crazy year…. Stay positive & rave as one family <3
