A new Asta Hiroki Remix for Tristan de Liege – Mbali (feat. Selina Carrera) is out now via the manchester based electronic label – first light.
Utilising the glorious strings and lush textures of the original the remix turns it into a leftfield hip hop beat which mutates into glitch inspired downtempo IDM.
Premiered online by the wonderful Stereofox blog and now available on all reputable stores and platforms.
You can listen to it on Spotify here:
Recently Rook Records requested a video DJ mix for their new YouTube channel and I saw it as an opportunity to test out some AV ideas I’ve been working on.
The visuals were made using a combination of video footage run through my own custom coded Cycling ’74 MAX/MSP patches, Tachyons + analogue hardware, and an old CRT TV.
The music tracks span electronica, hip hop and glitch, combining newer discoveries alongside more well known artists. Some highlights imo are: my new remix for Tristan de Liège, and awesome tunes from Shrimpnose, K.Raydio, Kenny Segal and s.maharba
Hope you like it!
