Soft Boi classics – Mixed by Soft Boi

House Funk

As Pessimist, Bristol producer Kristian Jabs is one of the finest purveyors of brooding drum’n’bass, releasing on the likes of Blackest Ever Black, Osiris Music and UVB-76. For his latest album though he has resurfaced as Soft Boi, shedding the fiendish fog of his bread and butter for a tongue-in-cheek exploration of his inner softness.

This mix delves deeper into the character, looking to Jabs’ own past as well as the music of Bristol club The Dug Out and his mother’s memories of its fabled existence. Funk-driven steppers of that era and more soft classics inside.
