About this item

After his acclaimed Beach Diggin’ series, renowned French-DJ/producer/ digger Guts is back with a new compilation! The finest selection of “classics” from his famous DJ sets, those tried and tested tunes he reaches for time and time again. 17 tracks of Latin, soul, boogie, Afrobeat and zouk from Cape Verde, Brazil, Equatorial Guinea, France, Portugal and beyond!

“The process of compiling started six or seven years ago, an itch that I scratched by putting out the Beach Diggin compilations. Exploring dusty crates for hours, unearthing those pearls and gluing them together with others of their kind. Bits of this, bits of that, looking back it’s what made me want to return to DJing, and so return to it I did. More recently, if I’m not on stage or in the studio, I spend my time crossing the world behind two turntables and a mixer, often dancing as much as those in the crowd. For most of my sets I’ll have around a hundred records with me, I’ll draw from them depending on the state of mind in that particular moment. Call it my immediate stock of music if you like. Things in my bag may only remain in there a short period of time before getting swapped out for something else. Others may make an appearances a little more often, then of course there are the loyal favourites that may stay in my bag for months on end and feature in all my sets. So for this compilation, “Straight From The Decks”, there are seventeen tunes that constitute the true essence of my DJ sets. To listen at home, or to remind you of the atmosphere you may have experienced at one of them. Or, perhaps to entice you to attend the next one...” - Guts
