We close this week with a guest mix from Ireland courtesy of Hsuan Records. The label’s owner, Graeme who releases on the label under a variety of names including Sight, Kuei and Arianna, delivered a mix of influences to show the foundations of both his productions and A&R for the label.
As always with us, after Graeme got in touch last month to share some music we invited him to deliver a mix for our on going guest series and after turning it around a lot quicker than originally thought, here’s what he had to share about the mix’s intent:
This mix is a snapshot of current and past influences which, have shaped my current Dj’ing and production style. From early ’00 hip hop to the granulated works of Fennesz, Tim Hecker and James Holden to more current influences. Ranging from the sprawling London sound of UK funky which I first heard in late 2008 to the recent influx of Juke and footwork inspired productions of which I’ve included one of my own works under the Arianna alias. Enjoy
And there you have it, an hour long journey into what makes Hsuan records tick, including plenty of our own favourites and some interesting, diverse linking from UK Funky to juke and footwork.
For more on Hsuan Records you should head over to their Soundcloud page where you can peruse most of their back catalogue. Or if (shock, horror) you feel like buying some music check their Boomkat catalogue.
