barry fell - swan soul beatdown

Thanks to Andre and Leidra for playing this in the car on the way to our hiking trip at Whipp's Ledges and the Icebox Cave. This mix shows a mastery of slowed down Detroit soul and house grooves layered and looped to create funky textures and moods perfect for driving a car or cutting a rug. It's official: Barry Fell has out-Moodyman-ed Mr. Kenny Dixon, Jr., in my opinion. The only other DJ that I know of that can mix house so sublimely at such a slowed down tempo is Miles Maeda when he's in one of his "Hovering at 7 a.m." moods. Brilliant.
