Listening to Duke Raoul's mix of experimental guitar music
(see post below) has led me to think about how important artist
mixes have become to me in the past year. Mixes are a great way to
discover new music and find out more about the tastes of artists
you already know about.
is undoubtedly the best
place to find this stuff, as they present two mixes per
week. I've uploaded three of my favourite FACT mixes from
2010, which you can stream or download from this page.
LHF are a London collective of producers, jointing releasing
deep, percussive bass music. They've created lots of mixes to
showcase their tunes, many of which are available on
. Their 'Keepers of the Light' series is
definitely worth checking out, but my favourite mix remains this
hypnotic and compelling set for FACT.
Four Tet is one of the biggest crossover names that FACT
roped in last year, and his mix is full of cutting edge electronic
artists like Ramadanman, Oni Ayhun and Mount Kimbie.
Glasser's mix is actually a collaboration with her
co-producers The Romantic Three. This makes for a more varied
listen, with two remixes of Glasser tracks, ambient moments,
contemporary electronic and even a foray into vintage techno.
