FACT mix 290 is one we’ve been waiting on for a long time.
Appleblim has been one of this magazine’s favourite artists since 2005, when he and Sam Shackleton started up a record label called Skull Disco.
More recently, Appleblim's main focus has been Applepips, his record label that has released music from some of contemporary dance music’s biggest names as well as rising talent from the UK; his own productions, which have also gone from strength to strength; and his illuminating DJ skills – one of the reasons we’ve been after this mix for so long.
His sporadic Rinse FM sessions in 2008 were real treats – John Peel-esque guides through both the best in contemporary and classic dance music, and personal favourites from Appleblim’s past – and his FACT mix, which clocks in at 1 hour 35 minutes in length, is along the same lines, featuring records by Gas, Model 500, Aphex Twin, Cocteau Twins, David Sylvian, Loose Ends, Paul Woolford, Wedge, October and many more.
