Years ago, a friend of mine hipped me to the vocal and electronics based album Raj by Derek Piotr and it became part of my daily routine in rotation with Samuel Kerridge, Haxan Cloak, Demdike Stare, and other dark outliers that soundtracked my bus commute. Since then, Piotr and I have become friendly and have sent tracks back and forth for advice and remixing interest. He has also, since Raj, released a number of cassettes and CDs, either on his own, or on labels such as Line. This mix comes to me with perfect timing as he is set to play a live set in my hometown of Philadelphia along with LXV and the 1694 collective on April 20th. A short but sweet and inventive mix from my friend Derek. Have a listen!
