The MakeItGood x FatKidOnFire feature series is going from strength to strength at the moment – having seemingly overtaken the other content you’ll find here on FKOF (for the time being). I’m finalising the #100.2 brand feature (which will hopefully awesome enough to make the wait worthwhile!) at the moment and it looks like it’ll all be ready in the next 10 days or so. So sit tight and please stay patient!
Today’s MIG x FKOF feature is with south London’s Mutated Mindz; a trifecta of DJs, producers, MCs and singer-songwriters. If you’ve not heard of these guys, check them on Facebook, Mixcloud and Twitter. The MIG x FKOF series has been built on the foundations of the deeper and darker sounds – but today we’re going down a slightly different road with 45m of tearout to go with the words you’ll find below…
Who are Mutated Mindz? We are 3 DJs/ producers/ singers/ songwriters/ MCs from south London. We like to look at it like we’re all related (like one big family)! We’re 3 blokes (Sadam, Point and Murfy) from the same universe and our love for music brought us all together to form Mutated Mindz.
What got you into producing dubstep? All three of us have always had love for music; we’ve all been brought up around it and influenced by our parents love for it! Our mates around us got us into dubstep and we have all influenced one
another over the years.
What software do you use to produce your tracks?
Turntables or CDJs? We stick to CDJs these days but we all come from the vinyl days and spending pocket money on tunes so we would never turn down a spin on the wheels of steel!
What’s been your best gig and if you could DJ alongside anyone, who would it be?
Our best gig so far has to be digital alloutdubstep Brighton; a sell out event and an absolute madness! We enjoyed playing that one but have got a few gigs coming up abroad like Belgium and Holland so we’re looking forward to those.
We would all agree that if I we could DJ with anyone it would have to be Eric Morillo. We have the upmost respect for him and his music an what he does!
Who are your top 5 dubstep producers at the moment; and why? Our top five would have to include:
- Hizzle Guy and
But there’s too many to mention!
What’s the future of dubstep – where do you see the genre going? We think it’s strong right now – in all aspects of the genre. There’s the high frequency electro stuff that’s big right now and the low end deeper, darker stuff is pretty strong as well! There’s a lot of other sounds popping up inside the genre too but then there always has been.
Any forthcoming releases we can look forward to? We’ve got the ‘Freak Train EP‘ on Bassclash Recs which is out now (in most digital stores) and also our ‘Brown Sugar EP‘ will be dropping on Subfreq Recs this month.
Have you got any advice to upcoming DJs/Producers? We would say be true to yourself and always believe in yourself/ what you’re doing. Set yourself goals to achieve and don’t stop till you reach them and then set new goals! Always look for the positive side of things; work hard; put in the hours and have fun. Haha!
Our families and close friends.
The Mutated Mindz mix features a solid selection of the most recent tunes from the trio and has been doing the rounds on Facebook and Twitter since I uploaded it at the start of the week. It’s a bit different from the sounds that usually feature in the MIG x FKOF series, but you can’t beat a bit of tearout every now and again!
