#MixMonday: Richy Ahmed Live at Coco Maya Beach Club, Playa Del Carmen, Mexico

By  | 

The recent Stateside cold snaps have had the nation feeling like summer is forever out of reach, so indulge yourself in this week’s #MixMonday and let Richy Ahmed’s set from last month’s BPM Festival take you on a tropical getaway.

Taken from Ahmed’s performance at Jamie Jones’ first Paradise party of 2014, the hour-long set is filled with funked-out techy thumpers. An early appearance of Richy’s latest release “The Drums”—heavy on accentuated hi-hats and glitchy sub-bass—lays solid bedrock for the spoken-word vocals, and sets the tone for the majority of the set.

Around 20-minutes in, Shonky’s remix of “Allez Ally” takes the vibe into a more techy direction. Forty minutes later, right at the hour mark, Ahmed amps up the energy level, packing in a groovy retro aesthetic to close things out with Bass It Up’s mix of Mario Diaz’s “Can You Feel It.”
