For the first of our relaunch exclusives we have this killer mix from UK bassline bad man, Gella. Stacked full of dubplates and forthcoming material, he takes us on a one hour 20 minutes ride of the freshest breaks, garage, 2 step, D&B and all places in between.
Gella has been a long time favourite of mine and many others for his very unique take on the electronic music he produces. His early releases and remixes on Fat Records secured him as one to watch and he didn’t disappoint with massive tracks on Bassrock, Valium and Sub Slayers. Whilst being known as a breaks producer, his music takes in all kinds of bass heavy influences that just happens to be glued together with the sickest broken beats you’re ever going to hear.

1. Thanks for taking the time to answer our questions, for those that don’t know, who are you, what do you do and what style(s) of music do you play?
Hello, my name is Andy Gella and I make noisy, bassy and kind of weird electronic music, usually featuring a breakbeat or two.
