LWE Podcast 168: Spatial

LWE connected with Spatial to discuss mathematics, his new project Primitives, remixing techno legend Kirk Degiorgio, and to find out what’s in store for his Infrasonics label. He also put together an absurdly fine mix for our 168th exclusive podcast, ranging from early 90s hallucinatory electronics to roughened bass and techno maneuvers, peppered with a few of his own select dubs.

S-Max & Spatial, Schmorgasbord 002

S-Max plays the strait-laced straight face to Spatial’s loopy and skewed maniac on the second platter from Bristol’s collaboration-centered Schmorgasbord imprint.

Spatial, Infra001-4

Infra001-4 is a remarkable charting of not only Spatial’s output, but also of the mutating sounds of dance music over the past couple years as well.

Erik XVI, Stern-Gerlachs Versioner

Erik XVI’s Stern-Gerlachs Versioner, released in January on Highpoint Lowlife, compiles seven remixes of tracks from last year’s Stern-Gerlachs Försök EP. The collection is a veritable stylistic melting pot; the dystopian aura of the originals pervades but is filtered through everything from Dissident-style arpeggiator disco to dark garage. This sort of variety is a potential weakness: in pre-download days you might end up paying full price for a single quality track in a sea of duds. Luckily, the curatorial work here is impeccable, rewarding the versatile modern DJ with its diversity.

Spatial, Infra002 EP

We humans typically deal with space in terms of the three dimensions most readily apparent to our senses– length, width, and height. If theoretical physicists like Brian Greene and Lisa Randal — whose respective bestsellers The Elegant Universe and Warped Passages helped usher the wacky nomenclature of superstring theory into the late night stoner blather of an entire generation — are to be believed, the universe might actually require something like eleven to function properly. You can’t really blame the sizable demographic of dubsteppers, each competing tooth and nail to get their bass jams out of a DJs distended record bag before the other dude’s, for ignoring the extra dimensions we remain more or less oblivious to in favor of amping up the big three. Aptly-named twostepper Spatial, however, has not forgotten those knotted-up pockets wherein only the most esoteric matter tingles.
