Today’s mix is a classic from the EB vaults by Warp and Planet Mu affiliated producer Tim Exile. Something of a polymath—he also writes music software—Tim’s recently been making waves (no pun intended) as one fifth of the Native Instruments-curated supergroup Mostly Robot. Indeed, you may have caught the collaborative live project at EB Festival Budapest last summer (if not, no biggie, you can watch the video here). This mix from 2008 conjures up a vivid world that’s at once medieval and futuristic. With gothic sounds and coded lyrics that create shadowy illusions, he has always used an intimidating amount of machinery and layers upon layers of programmed algorithms to manipulate his songs onto a new and exciting plane. This is him at his finest—enjoy!
