Who is Tom Whatmore?
We could tell you that he founded and ran Edinburgh's long-running and much-revered dubstep night, Syncopate. We could mention that over the years he's often been found lurking on the fringes of Dissensus and Dubstep Forum under the alias '4linehaiku'. But that isn't why we asked him to do a Wifey mix. Really he's a mate of ours who regularly shows what a great DJ he is at tiny afterparties but, oddly, never really plays out.
And Tom hasn't let us down at all. This mix is comfortably as good as any we've put out recently. There's no exclusive unreleased dubs, just a bunch of great tracks you might not have heard before, drawn from Tom's enviable vinyl collection. Stylistically the mix covers plenty of ground, but there's a definite rough-edged aesthetic and a love of techno linking the tracks.
You can see Tom (alongside residents and a secret special guest) at the next Wifey on 13th September. Tickets here: http://is.gd/ixPLaR
