WE FORFEIT (Mix 2) :: It’s cold at the bus stop

Ooft. Fierce nip the air these days. Madrid’s temperatures have plummeted and Chris and myself have knocked together some music to reflect those wintery moods as well as tracks to warm your cockles to.

There’s a ‘bitta chat outa me in the mix but some extra bobs here. Everything is from Aleksi Perälä and Gifted & Blessed. I been listening to Perälä since his Ovuca days but his work under his own name is undoubtedly some of his best. The Finn’s Colundi Sequence material is frigid, trippy and seriously addictive, the albums have definitely put a dent in my finances but they’re well worth the corn flakes dinners. Definite desert island discs stuff for me, some of the best electronic music in recent years. The rest of the tracks are by Gabriel Reyes-Whittaker aka Gifted and Blessed. He’s an artist I came to far late in the day but one who has a real something to his sound and style, a musician I’ll be keeping an ear on.

Chris treats us to a range of cracking tracks from here in Spain and abroad. Veteran Jordan Fields, Barcelona’s Polybius Trax with a special shout out to Frak’s Cromo Fraction released on one of Madrid’s premier imprints Femur (if you’re about in the new year we’ll be at this) Chris finishes with the Ian Martin, an artist more versatile than cellotape, with a the title piece from his excellent Future City LP released on a personal fav of a label, Bio Rhythm.

Right, more matter with less art. WE FORFEIT.
