Mix of the Week – Stanton Warriors

We go back in time this week with a classics Breaks mix from Stanton Warriors recorded live at Clockstock Festival 2021

Since bursting onto the scene in 2001 with their multi award-winning compilation ‘The Stanton Sessions’, the Stanton Warriors irresistible and inimitable sound has consistently remained the soundtrack to some of the world’s biggest and best parties; from East London warehouses, Miami boat parties and illegal Detroit raves, to smashing up the stages of Coachella, Glastonbury, Burning Man and Ultra, and selling out global tours.

In the studio, Bristol’s Mark Yardley and Dominic Butler have honed a trademark sound that is at once all their own, but also utterly indefinable, leading to high-profile releases on XL Recordings, Fabric, Cheap Thrills, Central Station and Universal, alongside official remixes for everyone from Daft Punk and Fatboy Slim, to MIA, Gorillaz and Danny Byrd. This phenomenal output and remarkable longevity have ensured the Stanton Warriors legendary status amongst not only their fans, but also their peers, as they remain fresh, original and relevant, obstinately dancing to the beat of their own drum, helping to pave the way for new talent, proudly ploughing their own genre for twenty years and as the new album title points to, still continuing to rise.
