Rumours are running up and down the UK’s girls dorm rooms that Mr. Debonair aka C.Bev aka Debenhams is making a return to these shores soon! And to help the mostly female welcoming party begin their preparations Papi Bevan has done a rather lush and dead sexy guestmix for the Kolour Recordings team… Jive on to it below, read an interview on the Kolour site and peep the tracklist after the jump:
Yup its another best of 2012 mix! Like you’ve had enough?!
Anyways… its been a wicked year partying with the boys from the Tapped crew and to celebrate we’re looking back at trax that revved our collective engine. Looking forward to it all kicking off again next year boys! :)
“2012 was a great year for everyone here at Tapped. We welcomed Patrick Perring aka Slothboogie into the fold on a permanent basis, witnessed Debonair release his debut 12″ on Kolour Records… played host to Bill Brewster, John Dasilva, Yam Who?, C90s, Alphabet City and Cottam… travelled to Belfast to provide a sound track for the Nite Jams people to shake down ‘Taps Aff’ style… supported Todd Terje and Lindstrom, as well as bumping the OBL tent at the 1-2-3-4 festival.
So instead of just wapping a bunch of bangorz together we’ve got everyone (KMG, Timmy, Debonair and Slothboogie) to select what they thought were ‘best track from an emerging artist’, ‘best produced track of 2012’ and which ‘track they’ve enjoyed playing at Tapped the most’…
Happy listening, and see you all again in 2013…”

Debonair’s trip down south is obviously rubbing off on his style which is no bad thing if its sounding like this! Time spent in the sun and warmth sipping loads of cocktails has given him extra vibes that no English weather sufferer can be capable of. Catch his very own debut Rhodes To Nowhere EP on Kolour Mothership which will be out on September 5th.
Well done Conor!
Another of our bezzies, Debonair, has dropped off his new mix too. Having officially emigrated our shores to mix it with the best of the flaming drongos down south he’s been really busy throwing shrimps on barbies and giving an overload of envy inspiring Instagram updates like the above (What a cunt). But amidst the amazing time he’s been having he’s managed to squeeze out this new very soulful mix.
