Greek producers Lex & Locke have combined to deliver a sumptuous four track EP via Delusions of Grandeur. Lex brings his intricate knowledge of house music garnered from a life in music which has seen him become one of the key figures in the Athens Underground where he is behind well loved record store Radical Soundz. Locke meanwhile is well seasoned traveler which has taken him from South American Jungle parties to burning hot African Desert Raves to the underground clubs of Berlin. All of these experiences have been infused into the delectable 7 Day Path EP which also features LV regular DJ Rocca on the remix of title track delivering some sun soaked psychedelic boogie.
To celebrate the release Lex & Locke have put together a very tasty mix for us showing the many sides of the their house music prowess. A collection of some their favourite play out tracks it’s a great insight into their musical loves from Jazzy edges to electro boogie and heavy percussive funk it’s a great combination.

We have a full interview with Lex & Locke incoming. In the meantime we had a quick chat with them about the mix.
Lex & Locke Mix Q&A
Q1: What can you tell us about the theme of the mix and what are some of the key tracks for you?
To be honest playing without seeing the reaction of the crowd can be a nightmare sometimes. Thats why we decided not to go too sophisticated and just play some of the tracks that we have been playing recently in our DJ sets. So you could say all the tracks are key tracks for us 🙂
Q2: How does the style of mix here compare to how you would approach a live DJ set?
Actually there’s not much difference. Usually we play a little deeper on our mixes but we felt like playing some of our peak-time favorite tracks. So you will find plenty of stuff that we play in our main dj sets.
Q3: Which other artists DJ mixes do you find yourself coming back to time and again and do you have a favourite that you gravitate towards?
We really like most of Antal’s dj mixes and this one reflects our more Balearic point of view.
