DECKast #20 x TineZ and Alexander

A month or two back I received an email from the very talented, Martijn Tinez Vogelaers, who is the art director and designer at Uber and Kosher over in Antwerp, Belgium. It was to my surprise that someone as great as him would approach a blog like mine, and to that I am ever so grateful. Martijn has been curating mixes and art while pushing the underground electronic sound in Antwerp for the past 10 years now. He was generous enough to take sometime out of his busy lifestyle to fabricate the 20th issue of this DECKast. TineZ has teamed up with partner Alexander to create this mix, which explores some of the finest down-tempo electronica and hip-hop jams in their books. Be sure to check out TineZ's collection of incredible art and mixes over at his personal site. He's truly an inspiration. Here's what TineZ had to say about the mix...

"I only recently picked up mixing digitally and have been mixing strictly vinyl for about 17 years. It's because of blogs like That's Deck that I caved in and started mixing digitally... Not being limited by vinyl releases only changed the atmosphere of my mixes intensely. Where as I mainly used to mix vintage dance music (new wave, electronic boogie, italo disco, proto-house...) I now tend to dig a little more into my hip hop roots and combine that with down tempo electronics. I love to blend different genres. Like Digital Underground used to preach > "Doowutchyalike!"
I teamed up with dj-homie Alexander to make this mix extra special. Alexander and me used to organize underground electronic parties here in Antwerp for over more than 10 years together. We discovered That's Deck simultaneously. So when I told Alexander that Saish asked me to make a DECKast it was obvious that this homage would be a colab.
