LWE reached out to find out where Acid Test label owner Oliver Bristow is coming from and where he’s aiming to go. Acid Test’s most frequent artist (and LWE fave) Tin Man returns to add a killer exclusive DJ mix, as well — Talking Shopcast 21.
In a long conversation with LWE, a passionate Ashley Beedle talked about working with Horace Andy, the similarities between house music made in the 90s and the recent revival house sound, and why he’s enjoying his new residency at London’s Notting Hill Arts Club.
Phillip Sollmann’s work in computer music and drone under his birth name has long been distinct from his career as a DJ called Efdemin, but with his latest album, Decay, the two worlds are becoming ever closer. LWE talked to him recently about the merging of these two worlds, the Internet, and the history of electronic music.
LWE interviewed Francis Harris via email to find out more about the thought process behind his complex sound design, which influences poked through on the album, and the ethos of his Scissor & Thread label.
Always outspoken about her experiences and processes, Thaemlitz spoke with LWE via Skype in advance of a tour for Francis Harris’ album release, and more immediately before her gig at Oval Space on October 25th.
In anticipation of his appearances at Output for The Bunker on Friday, September 13th and Smart Bar for Oktave on Saturday the 14th, LWE sat down with Slater recently for a quick chat about his new album, techno’s multicultural roots, and getting billed under his birth name.
In advance of his appearance at the Stop Making Sense festival, LWE were granted to the opportunity to converse with Matt Edwards via email. Might we suggest keeping a second tab open to Discogs while reading this interview, for reference sake.
