Clear was a short lived UK label specializing in future electro and jazzish IDM that just about blew my mind in 1995. harboring early works from luminaries such as Global Communications, μ-Ziq, Autechre, Matthew Herbert, Acen, Kirk Degiorgio, Morgan Geist, etc. made Clear a mecca for fans of electronic music. here is a 20th anniversary mix to pay homage to one of my favorite labels. long live Clear.

For Those Who Miss Mo Wax

this is an ode to one of my favorite labels from the 1990s, one that opened my ears to some new and fucked up sounds. this mix weaves in and out of DJ Shadow‘s epic soundscape ‘In/Flux’, my introduction to the nether worlds of sonic exploration, beat craftsmanship and Planet Of The Apes samples. it’s some scientific abstract type shit, and it’s for those who miss Mo Wax.
