Skweee! That’s what this mix is all about. If you’re not from the Scandinavian skweee homeland there’s a good chance you haven’t heard of it, which is a shame because it rocks. Think glitchy synth-funk cuts with melodies scrawled in bright neon colours, wonky chiptune made for the dancefloor, poppy miniatures designed for collectable sevens.

Skweee’s obviously not just for the Finns anymore, because this week’s guest DJ, RPG-H8R (AKA Mr Hayden Thomson) is about as far from the Arctic as you can get, being a Kiwi currently residing in Melbourne, Australia. Almost singlehandedly championing the skweee sound down under, we reckon Hayden is on his way to superstar skweeelebrity status. Check out his skills in his exclusive WEPLAYMUSIC mix, where you can hear him drop his own seriously tasty productions alongside some choice tunes from the deepest underground, all expertly mixed together in a slice and dice stylee.

…So while we’re doing skweee we’ve got a couple of cheeky plugs. Check track 11 to see what Mattie Twentythree has been up to under his Ixvo-Exvo alias. And don’t forget to go download the free Dee Vee Skweee MP3 compilation for more…
