Bogdan Raczynski

in , Mix of the Day by Louise Brailey about

Bogdan Raczynski‘s background transcends global and cultural boundaries: born in Poland, he moved with his family to the US before eventually travelling to Japan to study. Likewise, his music is difficult to fix in place—there’s a restlessness at play that’s been present since the ’90s when he was first signed to Rephlex. It’s certainly readable in the frenzied drum programming and the yen for genre mutation (Raczynski sometimes sings in Japanese over his breakbeats), as well as his artistic dovetailing into computer game music and filmmaking. We expected something a little different from his Mix of the Day, and he didn’t disappoint. Expect a stylistically brisk, fast-paced mix—there’s over 50 tracks in less than an hour—that’s a little cerebral, frequently beautiful and sometimes faintly ridiculous. Want Lil Wayne on the same tracklist as Aphex Twin, Untold, and Erik Satie? You’re in luck. You can follow Bogdan Raczynski on Twitter.
