Playing tracks by
Boards Of Canada, Air, Burial, King Tubby, Melodians and more.
Making this mix to showcase influences from my new album Form of Release, I automatically started to mentally archive where the source of some of musical inspiration comes from.
What got me wanting to do electronic music, first and foremost, is Boards of Canada. When I used to tour in a punk band around 7-10 months out of the year, Boards of Canada was my salvation, I would turn my headphones as loud as possible and automatically the scenery turned into a beautiful movie, whether we were driving through the Swiss mountains or waiting in rush hour traffic for hours in some major metropolis.
On this mixtape I tried to combine as many of my favorite songs that relate to the sounds on Form of Release. From an outside perspective, the mix of genres may seem random but to me they are all home. Enjoy!
