NE156: An Exclusive Mix By… HOLOVR

September 02, 2014 Needle Exchange

Words JIMMY BILLINGHAM

This is a mix of unreleased/forthcoming material from me and a few of the lads and guises, some of which will be out on a new label I’m launching in a couple of weeks: Indole Records. Not sure how you really define a lot of this stuff—I always struggle when people push for descriptions. The ‘outsider’ tag never really sits right; for me, these guys are getting right inside of the forms and fully engaged with the substance of the sound and styles, and not for the sake of blending but of getting lost in it, beyond function and use and deep into micro zones of texture, rhythm and sensation…

Tracklist:
Morkebla – Heal my Wounds with Resin
Basic House – A Swing
WANDA GROUP – BLOOD CARRIER
Tihkal – Haywain
DIVAN – DAMAGE
SKIN STATUE – MTD
Aniello & OOBE – 2016
Pearl River Sound – Music please, make me happy
HOLOVR – Live at Home, 13-7-14
SILF – TOT-O (HOLOVR NYE remix)
Ex Geo – Memex
