International Tribe is a weekly mix series hosted by Thris Tian.
This week’s International Tribe mix comes from Entity London.
Entity London is the London born imprint run by Shai Spooner. Aiming to champion the music they believe in and never compromise in any way, the imprint is truly London bred, taking strong influences from the UK. Recent releases have leaned towards old school Garage, House and Breakbeat influences. They host regular parties with the help of resident DJs Mulshaw and JJ Beteta.
Growing up in Africa and then moving to London, Shai developed as an MC on Pirate Radio during Grime’s earliest days and these experiences have shaped the style of the label with the strong percussive timbres. With releases from the likes Alec Falconer, Lost Act, Henry Hyde, Fabe & Julian Alexander. and more, Entity’s releases have been supported by the likes of Four Tet.
“This special mix is a blend of 2step, break step and UKG and explores a secret stash of rare records that I’ve been waiting for the right occasion to play. There’s also a load of new forthcoming music from the Entity family, and friends of the label, played for the first time here.”
