As club nights and dance re-open in Bristol, Mista Trick celebrates the highly anticipated release of his debut album, You, with a special launch party including a 9-piece big band for a full Swing & Bass experience.Bristol native Mista Trick has made a reputation for himself as a DJ on the festival and club circuit with his Drum & Bass remixes. Mista Trick was instrumental in developing the popular Swing & Bass label, which now hold its own club nights at Hootananny, Brixton, London, as well as being the creator and artistic director of his own festival, Under The Hill.
Mista Trick began to mix live elements into his remixes, introducing musicians, rappers, and vintage swing vocalists, Elle & The Pocket Belles. This soon developed into Mista Trick Live, the on-stage performance of this renowned Swing & Bass DJ’s finest tracks, with a full live band. This musical fusion is in a league of its own, taking Swing & Bass to the next level. Mixing vintage, vaudeville vibes with distinctly down and dirty Drum & Bass, the resulting sound is like the lovechild of a wartime knees-up and a 90s rave!
‘You’ is the long-awaited debut album from Mista Trick Live. After huge success mixing vintage classics, Mista Trick took on the challenge of creating his own original tracks and adding his now trademark Swing & Bass sound. The resulting album is energetic, eclectic, unique, and a perfect homage to the sounds of the 40s and 50s big band jazz vocal. We have already seen three massive tracks released from the album; Do What You Do featuring Kathika (AKA Kathika Rabbit) from Slamboree, About to Blow featuring guest vocal performances from Tenisha Edwards and Blackout JA, and Drive featuring long-time collaborators Elle & The Pocket Belles.
“A musical explosion pitting vintage against urban with a spectacular result”
