Mixtape #112

March is upon us and what better way to set the mood than with our monthly mixtape, this time round kindly curated by the amazingly talented drummer and composer Anton Eger. Whether you know his work with Phronesis or Marius Neset, or his many collaborations with artists like Django Bates, Daniel Heløy Davidsen or Ivo Neame, Eger is one of the most extraordinary drummers around. His eponymous debut album, Æ, released last year, has completely enthralled and enraptured us, merging retro influences with electronica and contemporary beats. Showcasing his incredible creativity and technical virtuosity, it's no surprise Æ made it our Album Picks of the Year. Needless to say, we're ecstatic to unveil his mix. Enjoy!

Mixtape #53

The Berlin based duo Oy, made up of Swiss-Ghanian multi-instrumentalist Joy Frempong and drummer / producer Lleluja-Ha, are a treat of a band and we've been hooked on their sounds ever since we first heard them. Oy offer a rich and intoxicating blend of music genres, from electronic and soul to jazz and African music, laced with Joy's engaging and quirky storytelling. So we've asked them to take us on an tour of the sounds that have inspired them and the resulting mixtape below is further evidence of just how versatile they are with genres.

Just last week, Swedish quartet Little Dragon got us salivating with a teaser trailer for their much-anticipated fourth album Nabuma Rubberband. The trailer featured a short snippet of one of the songs from the album, ‘Klapp Klapp’. The full track has just been unveiled and if it is anything to go by, Little Dragon’s upcoming album will be refreshingly excellent. Give ‘Klapp Klapp’ a listen now.
