Mixes Of The Week: 5/6/17

This week’s top mixes include Teki Latex’s Impressions, Aphex Twin at Field Day, Fabric’s tribute to Marcus Intalex and Joey Anderson’s Otherworldly Selections.

Teki Latex’s Impressions. “Pauses make way for dramatic moments. Motifs are layered on top of each other then peeled off to unravel touches of colour.” Parisian DJ, co-founder of Sound Pellegrino and curator of Overdrive Infinity, Teki Latex proves that he’s the kind of blends in his latest mix.

Aphex Twin at Field Day. The mighty Aphex Twin performs live from Field Day Festival in London. The two-hour set is a weird and wonderful, high-velocity drama, featuring acidic squelches and rampaging breakbeats, joined by live rhythmic glitches and ultra-modern, mix-tearing sound design effects. Watch with visuals in full above.
