Here’s a mix taken from ABC’s Triple J mix show in Australia that Goldie did in September while on tour. Enjoy!!!

If this site wasn’t named ‘A Strangely Isolated Place’, it would probably be called, “76.14″. Without a doubt, the legends behind one of my favourite ambient/electronic albums of all time, Global Communication are an elusive pair nowadays. I had to pass up on a a rare gig not too long ago at the British Library because it was my girlfriends birthday (priorities eh?!) and these sets from Hayhook make it just that little bit worse – once again reminding me just how talented Tom Middleton and Mark Pritchard are.

From the sublime ambient take on Slowdive, to the balearic Beloved remix and the Jedi Knights jams, these mixes have every corner of Tom and Mark’s epic journey covered.

Thanks to m:cast for originally finding and posting the mixes. You can also get all of Hayhook’s mixes over on Percussion Lab.

RA.286 Xhin


Techno meets IDM in Singapore.

While you’d hesitate to give it a name, the type of techno Xhin and Stroboscopic Artefacts have been pushing of late does feel somehow removed from what’s gone before. That could be part of the reason that despite being involved in electronic music since 1997, we felt it appropriate to feature him in our Breaking Through series late last year. Even as recently as last year the Singaporean producer was releasing solid—but in no way ground-breaking—house and techno. And then this happened. While it’s unclear whether recording with a new imprint, Stroboscopic Artefacts, simply gave him a new lease of life, the Fixing The Error / Link EP just felt that much more weighty than previous material. He then followed it up with a string of equally intriguing music for SA and his former stomping ground Meerestief, which has just culminated with Sword, Xhin’s sophomore album that brings his love for classic IDM and ambient triumphantly to the fore.

The sound of Sword informs much of Xhin’s 60 minute mix for us with—as we’ve come to expect from him—some additional WTF moments thrown in for good measure.
