‘Degrees of Provenance’ is a Spotify playlist originally made for my label, Provenance, featuring curios from the last four decades – music that has inspired me in one form or another whilst building the label. Including: Einsturzende Neubauten, Suicide, Steve Reich, Laurie Anderson, Rhythm & Sound, PiL, Oneohtrix Point Never, Damo Suzuki and more. Listen & follow via player below. (Cover: Tricky)
A new collaborative project from Arabstazy, who explore connections between heritage, identity, culture and digital arts. Under Frustration is the first of a planned three-part compilation series which surveys the contemporary Arabic electronic music scene. Most of the work here is abstract and mercurial, with a few cross-referential touch points – if electronic music has ceased to surprise you, this will reawaken your senses.
Episode 2 of Freak Wave ventures into experimental, underground and leftfield music from Dominican Republic, Niger, South Africa, Norway, Japan, Ecuador and Greece.
