[Music] glič – Propr Gangst – The Remixes

I wasn’t quite sure what to make of glič, a DJ out of Manchester, England.  Within a moment, any concerns were immediately allayed with his really funky groove.  His music and the music of the artists he’s remixing covers R&B, electro and delves a bit into dubstep. glič reaches back to Manchester’s venerable tradition of electronic […]

He’s also a DJ for Basso Radio, and this podcast gives a good demonstration […]
