Episode 012 takes us to the ragged end of 2007, when GB provided Slye with a stack of records. "Make a mix with them," he said, so DJ Slye did. Moving through the icy terrain of abstract hip hop and skewed electronica, the selection here takes in the offbeat hip hop of Daedalus and the weary synth pop of James Figurine, mixing in vintage materials from the likes of Bloodrock and Silver Apples, with a handful of vignettes from the Sneakmove compilations. The result is a perfect companion piece to the fall of winter, when the clouds roll in and the breeze turns cold.
