Mix Of The Week (end): Ripperton- Defected In The House
The latest Defected In The House podcast series featured the legendary Ripperton on the decks for an exclusive mix. It seems only fitting that a House music staple like this gentleman should team up with one of the genre’s best and oldest labels. Much like the names implies, Ripperton rips, well sort of. The word “rip” seems a bit too abrasive to describe his style. It’s a lot more surgical and precise, perhaps “methodical” would be suit him better. His latest hour of beats cut nice and deep and take the time to sink in. That’s his whole shtick: Instead of bashing your head against the wall with an overzealous bass line, he likes to shake your hand, and let you settle in before taking off. The Ripperton portion of the broadcast starts around one hour into the mix. Enjoy yourselves.
