Mixtape #108

With a unique and innovative approach to the guitar, Patrick Higgins is an incredibly forward-thinking and versatile musician and visionary composer and producer who, over the last decade, has made his mark on contemporary music. Relentlessly prolific, Higgins has an impressive list of recording projects to his name, both as a solo artist and collaborator, and has also composed for renowned ensembles and soloists. One of Le Guess Who?’s guest curators this year, Higgins offers an utterly sublime curated program including his own projects Dossier X and AEAEA. Ahead of the forthcoming 13th edition of Le Guess Who?, we are ecstatic to unveil this special mixtape he put together for us, serving as an extraordinary taster of what to expect from each of the phenomenal artists he has invited.

Mixtape #66

This month mixtape has been hand-picked by the inventive and inspiring artist and music producer Zahed Sultan. Here are a few words about the mix from Zahed himself:

"As a multimedia artist, I find myself inspired by places and spaces. This inspiration has, fortunately, allowed me the opportunity to explore various parts of our world – all the while digging and immersing myself into sub-cultures. And, in turn, sharing a piece of my own expression with said people(s).
This is a collection of songs that have recently been the soundtrack to my late night walks down empty streets in various cities - while on tour with the ‘eyeamsound experience’."
