Mixtape #56 by Colin Stetson


The compositions of Michigan-born, Montreal-based sax magician Colin Stetson are staggering and intense, like nothing we've heard before. On stage, his extraordinary songwriting is distilled into powerful, physical and raw performances where he layers sounds relying solely on his saxophone and breathtaking circular breathing skills. Needless to say he quickly became our favourite undercover super-hero, so we're ecstatic to present to you the tracks that Colin Stetson has handpicked for us this month. Get ready for a journey through a bonkers vortex of references and genres, from Ivo Papasov and Mobb Deep, to Liturgy and Jimi Hendrix!
