Playing tracks by
Space Machine, KK Null, Black Dice, Ash Ra Tempel, Subway and more.
Subway released their terrific sophomore album last week via Soul Jazz Records. The follow-up to Empty Head, their debut for Sunday Best, Subway II finds the London-based duo of Michael Kirkman and Alan James further exploring their vision of "post-dance" music, drawing on influences from the worlds of 70s krautrock, Detroit techno and European disco.
The mix that Subway have recorded for FACT, the 59th in our ongoing series, is an enlightening thumb through electronic music’s back pages, and features tracks from acts as diverse as Black Dice, Ash Ra Tempel, Stereolab and Basic Channel, not to mention an edit of a previously unreleased Subway track, ‘Theera’.
