We like weird at Data Transmission; the out-there and the off-kilter has always appealed to us, as it’s… well, different! So when we heard about Taylor Barrow and his oddball approach to mashed up dance music, it peaked our interest, and we thought our Spotlight series was the perfect platform for Taylor to strut his stuff.

Taylor first came to our attention through his new 1161 release, a collection of 6 tracks that not only blurs genre boundaries, but rubs them out entirely. The debut release from Phone Home Records – a new imprint from Tape Club, curated by Hairy Hands – 1161 sticks everything from hip hop and funk to jungle and electro in a blender, and somehow ends up with a palatable outcome.

Although he now works with Ableton, Taylor’s combination of classical training and a history experimenting on his Dad’s old Roland EP-9, has landed him with both a natural musicality and an unnatural sound. Showcasing this in his Spotlight Mix, the Toronto producer brings together the likes of Jacques Greene, BADBADNOTGOOD, Mr. Oizo, Flying Lotus, Lapalux, Shlohmo and Deadmau5.
