Numero 15 in the State Mix Series comes from Galway mashup artist and bootlegger PhilRetrospector. Phil specialises in twisting original songs into much more than dancefloor fodder, often going for the jugular of raw emotion with a heavy dose of melancholy. He often matches these rich sonic cut and paste palettes with self-made evocative videos.
With this mix, titled the Melancholics Anonymous mix, PhilRetrospector stretches the fabric of popular music in new and interesting ways taking in contributions from Johnny Cash, Muse, Nina Simone, David Lynch, Angelo Badalamenti, This Mortal Coil and Sigur Ros.
