The Digital Connection’s Equinox Mixtape (All Original)
To witness an artist from their humble beginnings mature their sound over the years is always a treat. I remember joining Afromonk’s Turntable.fm room back in 2011 and hearing Ricky Shine, AKA The Digital Connection playing a few tracks that he was working on at the time. Since then Ricky’s spent countless hours dialing in his sound design, trying to differentiate himself from his peers, and I believe this mixtape showcases his efforts extremely well. The mix starts off chilled out and on the ambient side, slowly working its way toward some heavier sounds that, in my opinion, rival productions of the bigger names in modern dubstep. So lie down on your bed right now, throw some cans on, and listen to this mix.
