Mix of the Month

I’m so happy that the School of Electronic Music has chosen mix as their Mix Of The Month. My mix will take you on a journey through distorted sounds, experimental field recordings and cutting-edge beats, drowned in an eerie, dark atmosphere. It contains tracks by left-field electronica producers who inspire me, four of which are from Manchester. They are very idiosyncratic in their approach, open and adventurous in their experimentation. Enjoy the sonic trip! The mix can be found here. Hope you enjoy!

Reform Radio Takeover

I am grateful that Reform Radio let me take over their station last night.

You can listen to my takeover on Refom Radio’s website and on Mixcloud.

I presented my first two singles Air and Reform. Air uses field recordings of Manchester’s rain and comes with a windy instrumentation, whereas Reform contains field recordings of Manchester’s construction sites and comes with industrial drums and broken beats echoing urban spaces.

The other tracks were of producers that inspire me, mostly left-field electronica. These artists are all very idiosyncratic and think beyond genre. They are driven by passion for sound and a sense of adventure. I hope you will find them inspiring, too.

Limbo Radio Mix #004

Thank you Limbo Radio for letting me play my first radio show of the year. This mix simply contains all the tracks that turned me on recently. Due to personal circumstances, it ended up having loads of weird melancholic dissonant electronica and eerie almost humorous elements in it. I was also thinking of my dear music friends who suffered a mutual personal loss today. Even though I did not know Alex I feel deeply sorry that such a passionate soul had to leave us early. I would like to dedicate this mix to him.
