Been a while since I posted an Essential Mix! What better way to break the “essential mix” silence than with this one from the talented (or some might call him crazy) The Gaslamp Killer. His own music is what we call experimental electro these days, but you clearly hear in his records that he uses a lot of real/live recorded instruments (check out his debut album Breakthrough), so not only beats and bleeps. Anyway, a 2hour mix packed with lot’s of dope experimental tracks ranging from Flying lotus to Mr. Oizo and of course including some of his own work.
For me personally SBTRKT was the biggest and most interesting revelation of 2011, quality music wise at least! I’m still frustrated that I couldn’t make his show last week and I’m hoping I’ll get the chance too see him live in the future. Amazing music and even more amazing vocal work by Sampha on most of the tracks. The SBRKT essential mix was aired friday night on BBC one radio and for those who missed it, grab it below, it’s as most essential mixes: brilliant!
