King Britt presents Scuba, Chemical Brothers, Lowleaf, TENKO, Power Douglas and more.
FACT mix 322 is by King Britt in his Fhloston Paradigm guise.
The King Britt Presents Fhloston Paradigm EP was released on Hyperdub earlier this year and the project is an outlet for Britt to explore his fascination with the science fiction movies and TV series of his youth, creating imaginary soundtracks on entirely analogue gear – mainly Roland DR110, Korg Mono/Poly, Kork MS20, Roland JX3P, Moog Sonic 6 and SQ1 sequencer.
For his FACT mix, as well as a generous helping of Fhloston Paradigm’s own productions – including the marvellous ‘Chase’ from the Hyperdub EP – there are excerpts from the Logan’s Run and Blade Runner soundtracks, gravely romantic 80s balladry from David Sylvian and Eurhythmics, Alice Coltrane-style astral jazz from Low Leaf, soaring techno from Galaxy 2 Galaxy (UR), precious ambience from Ryuichi Sakamoto and Alva Noto, as well as plenty of unexpected surprises – like Tenko’s bewitching, Fred Frith and Arto Lindsay-featuring ‘Gradual Disappearance’.
