FACT mix 325 is by Battles.
The trio of John Stanier, Ian Williams and Dave Konopka are currently at the height of their considerable powers. A lesser group might have capsized at the loss of a frontman as a visible and voluble as Tyondai Braxton, but the departure of that generously ‘fro’d fellow back in August 2010 instead precipitated a creative purple patch for the band, one which shows no sign of ending any time soon.
To mark the release of Dross Glop, a spooneristic remix companion to their sophomore record Gloss Drop, and to herald their live appearance at Belgium’s Dour festival, we invited Battles to record a little something for our FACT mix series. John Stanier stepped up, and has turned out a tasty selection of the kind of tunes the band have been devouring of late, focussing primarily on artists who appeared as remixers on Dross Glop; intriguingly, it features no less than three previously unreleased tracks by Hud Mo.
