NEEDLE EXCHANGE 125: An Exclusive Mix By … Jan St. Werner

Jan St. Werner

Having recently discovered the highly experimental inclinations of Jan St. Werner’s new “Fiepblatter” series, we asked the Mouse on Mars co-founder if he had a mix of similar mind-mashing music he’d like to share. Here’s what he sent back, including an ‘explanation’ of the whole thing…

Jan St. Werner made a blind DJ mix treating his record collection as if it was a freely associative library of pure sound, just like how he treats the ‘Fiepblatter’ catalogue as an archive where time and processes mix without hierachic intentions. The music comprised in this mix features historic and contemporary experimental and electroacoustic music processed and filtered through Werner’s machines and brain cells.
