Radioslave to Helm 23rd Balance Mix Compilation
We love Matt ‘Radio Slave’ Edwards here at DT. One of electronic music’s true experimentalists; a man rooted in house and techno whose influences draw from across the musical spectrum. From his releases on his own label Rekids to his work on other imprints the variety and poise of Radio Slave have always been something that have sought to push boundaries and advance the scene.
Thus we were excited to hear of his appointment to one of our favorite long running series in helming the latest Balance compilation with a lot promised in his two part incarnation of the series which looks set to starkly differ from his aggressively stripped back Fabric 48 Mix. As Matt explains himself:
“The idea of a double disc is something that totally suits me down to the ground as I’m interested in so many types of music. So with the Balance compilation I knew I’d have to take one mix in a clubbier direction and then the second disc would be all about showcasing tracks from my favourite producers and creating an environment for home listening that isn’t just wallpaper.”
He cites Future Sound Of London’s Kiss FM sessions and DJ Harvey’s Sarcastic as inspirational DJ mixes, both visionaries in their own way and getting us suitably hyped for what he’s going to produce!
To give you a hint of sounds to come check out his latest work on his own imprint with Mr. G and Prins Thomas!
