Detroit’s DeeJay Beige has dropped their new ‘Amen! Vol. 1’ mixtape.
Out now, the mixtape acts as a succinct blend of the styles Beige places to the forefront of their sets – heavy duty breaks, house, and beyond – while also taking on an autobiographical resonance.
Pieced together with expert care and attention, ‘Amen! Vol. 1’ digs into gospel house, a refection of their heritage.
A mix that truly takes you on a journey, the new release is designed to end on a transgressive, uplifting note, structure around an imaginary ‘gospel rave’.
Out now on Eris Drew and Octo Octa T4T LUV NRG imprint, ‘Amen! Vol. 1’ soundtracked the bulk of our Easter weekend.
DeeJay Beige comments…
For this project, I wanted to challenge myself to imagine going beyond just using a little soulful house to end the night or the mix on an uplifting note, and instead program a fantasy ‘gospel rave’ for a thousand of my closest friends dancing in a field on a moonless night. How would I do my best to deliver a powerful, meaningful, salvatory collective experience from midnight until sunrise? Amen Vol. 1 is a snapshot of that imaginary night.
Tune in now.
