This mix sees a slight tweaking of the paradigm, in that, while retaining the tech and the ambient and a good dose of the dub, it pushes the textures and atmospheres towards the shoegaze and dreampop side, the mnml sometimes ceding to stretched swathes of shoesy-wooze for more of a lazy hazy crazy shoegazey daze of a dub-techno mix.
Incidentally, watch out for a bloke called Jesse Somfay
, two of whose tracks find their way onto here. Now I reckon this guy knows (better than try-hards The Field, Nathan Fake, et al.) how to capture a distillate of the essence of guitar-gaze and synth-wooze (MBV through to BoC) for effective infusion into a technoid template.
