Origin One in 3 for Mimm Radio

Live on Mimm Radio tonight is Notts music producer, studio owner and Confetti lecturer Origin One.

Kevin started by producing Garage, Dubstep and Jungle but over the last 6-7 years his attention has turned towards Dancehall and Dub, playing at most major UK festivals and various international festivals. Just last year he released his debut album Deeply Rooted with Nice Up! Records in London.

Kevin's passion is grounded in old-school roots Reggae, all the way up to modern dancehall and bashment which is reflected in his productions and sets.

 The set he has created for Mimm Radio is a showcase of his roots where Origin One was conceptualised. There are some special variations of unreleased tracks and ones which have been lost over the years.

Ahead of his mix, we've asked Kevin for his 3 top tunes that have influenced the creative he is today. 

1. Mungo's Hifi - Go Lassie Go
Sunday Listening
This one is a re-jig of a classic Scottish and Irish folk tune sang by Cian Finn, in a Reggae Style. With both my parents being Scottish, and their parents Irish, this one really resonates with me and I fell in love with this when I first heard it. I was in Glasgow DJing last year and popped into the Mungo's lock up with Escape Roots and they passed me a copy - it's never left my record bag since!
2. General Levy - Incredible (Wrongtom Remix)
Set Starter
This track here is always a go to and a party starter. Having a massive jungle influence since a very young teen this is a great remix to include in sets and still provides something slightly different. It sounds great on a sound system and blends the Jungle and Reggae boundaries seamlessly. 
3. Think Tonk - How We Do It Tonight
Something different


This final track is from Manchester producer - Think Tonk. This was completely refreshing for me, keeping those bashment and dancehall rhythms, but having progressive atmospherical instrumentation was something I hadn't heard before. Not to mention the vocals are great too - it's one of a kind and I have started to sneak this into sets at times. People should go and check out more of Think Tonks back catalogue!
