• Luke Abbott – Clash Mix

    Stressful week? Us too, so forget it all and drift away into another – far more pleasant – world entirely, via Luke Abbott’s psychedelic, sedated Clash mix.

    A long-established part of the family at Border Community – James Holden’s experimental electro label – synth-obsessive Luke Abbott has been quietly releasing various slices of lo-fi electronic gold over the years. After colourful, woozy 2010 debut album ‘Holkham Drones’ introduced us to his analogue ways, Abbott is back with his second album. Titled ‘Wysing Forest’ – named after the arts centre in Cambridgeshire where the album was recorded and where Abbott became the first musician-in-residence – it’s a heady, otherworldly affair that mixes soundscaping with electro-acoustic production, showcasing the producer’s capacity for crafting vast, engulfing electronic tapestries.

  • Clash Debuts New DJ Mix From Emika


    A kaleidoscopic mix put together for Clash Magazine:

    Continually pushing ahead, the producer recently pieced together a mix for Clash to demonstrate where her head is at. Frequently collaborating with The Bomb Squad producer Hank Shocklee, Emika has also completed a salute to David Bowie – in the form of a neat deconstruction of ‘Let’s Dance’.

    All pieced together with a rare sense of exactness and detail, this is a fascinating catch up.
