New mix for Sprechen

I made a mix for Sprechen — a sonic journey through left-field electronica, from ambient to experimental to techno. Thank you Chris Massey who called the mix “without a doubt one of the most unique and original curations we’ve had in a long time”. Listen to the mix here and see the tracklist below.

My latest mix for alto radio is now available here.

Expect an eerie blend of vocals, found sounds from my sister’s friend’s hard drive from over 10 years ago, random song selections around the same BPM, merging folk, jazz, left-field electronica, trip hop and noise in an explorative and adventurous fashion.

These are the tracks played:

Angst4: In Gefahr (Industries Remix)

I made my first official remix for the great German post-punk band Angst4 and their song ‘In Gefahr’. I dissected all their stems and transformed them into an electromagnetic whirlwind of gloomy dangerous sounds. Enjoy the trip. Headphones recommended. Listen here. X

Soundpaths

Soundpaths is a project by Manchester based music charity Brighter Sound as part of SICK Festival‘s MINDSCAPES programme. It is a digital soundmap in the form of a running and walking app for residents of Moston and Harpurhey. Greater Manchester artists were invited to contribute site specific sounds to the soundtrack of the app which was composed by composer Yoni Collier. I sonically represented the Blue Bell pub through combining field recordings of the surrounding areas and a sound recording of an old Facebook video that shows guests of the pub singing together, merging the sonic present and past, evoking a sense of nostalgia.
