WE FORFEIT (Mix 3) :: Mulled wine, scented pine and yuletide electro

There have been some cracking electro records in the last twelve months, although the same could be said for the last sixty or one hundred and one months. Chris & Robbie sieved through some of their favs from past and present to add some sonic bite to that slab of turkey you’re gnawing on.

It’s Christmas. Mince pies and black eyes. Chris and myself are celebrating with a six pack of special brew washed down with lashing and lashings of Lambert&Butler. To help this feast of mental ecstasy and physical excess we’ve put together a mix centered on the supposed style of 2017, electro, with a few other sonorous sprigs.

Chris starts us out on this journey with a hero of dutch techno, Stefan Robbers (aka Florence.) He works his way into the enchanted forrest of Djax-Up-Beats before coming across the tin mechanics of Das Muster and the London Modular Alliance. The voyage ends in the emerald city with the wizard, I-F, doling out some bubbling bass before firing us back to Kansas; or not.

The idea of bookending with some machine magicians is followed by me. Aphex Twin and the recently reissued D’Arcangelo finish my selection with generous helpings of acid tainted machine funk set off by thoughtful electronics. A personal favorite of the year is in here, “Aurore Boréale” from Franck Kartell’s superb Alaska album, alongside nods to past crackers from Junq as well as E.R.P.. Shout outs to Cultivated Electronics, De:Tuned, Shipwrec and Suction who have put out superb music throughout 2017.

As ever, an all vinyl mix lovingly blended with care and carelessness. Recorded in Madrid but brought to you from the grey clouded purgatory of the Irish midlands and the heady heights of Glasgow’s high rises, WE FORFEIT wish you a year of lottery wins and broken promises.
