Mixtape #42

When we first posted about the imaginative and enchantingly talented British composer and musician Poppy Ackroyd, we never dreamt she would one day get involved with our monthly mixtape. Since then, she released an outstanding debut album, Escapement, where she explores and experiments with the piano and the violin, mirroring her intricate relationship with the two instruments. Also, our dream came true and this month she picked and mixed seventeen stunning tracks, for your ears to indulge on.


First taste from Philip Glass remix project by Tyondai Braxton

Philip Glass, one of the world’s most celebrated composers, turns 75 this year and to commemorate it, the most impressive group of talented musicians contributed to Rework: Philip Glass Remixed, a collection of Glass’s original compositions that have been reworked and remixed.

According to the press release, the idea first come about after conversations between Glass and Beck, who then “recruited producer Hector Castillo (David Bowie, Björk, Lou Reed) to help assemble a collection of remixes of Glass’ works by a list of critically acclaimed artists.”
Other than Beck, Rework: Philip Glass Remixed features remixes from Tyondai Braxton, Cornelius, Dan Deacon, Amon Tobin, Peter Broderick and more.

The album will be available as a double LP and double CD and is slated for a October 23rd release via Orange Mountain Music / Ernest Jenning Record Co. and The Kora Records. You can pre-order it now.

We have just been graced with the first cut from the forthcoming album, a remix of ‘Rubric’, which comes from the hands of prodigious composer and musician Tyondai Braxton. It is amazing beyond belief and you’ll be hitting play again the second it ends. Here it is.
