We're excited to share another banger with you, from none other than Alexander Nut.
As well as being a legendary dj and selector, Alex is one of the founders of Eglo records, home to some of the most exciting music coming out of the UK. Alex's early career in the UK's music scene saw him cut his teeth as resident at London's Plastic People and broadcasting on Rinse FM.
These days you can find Alex hosting his show on NTS radio and playing parties at Spiritland and many other club nights and festivals across the globe. Alex is a legend in the game and we're thrilled to present this mix to you...
In his words "I’m calling this one the Midnight Mediation Mix, as it was midnight when I finished recording it. It’s 90 minutes of escapism, It’s really a journey. Sometimes making a mix can put me into a mediative type of state, when you focus less on the functionality of the mixing and more on the vibe and tone of the songs. Theres no genre or era, its just styles that resonate with the mind, body and soul. I really wanted to put together an OG style mix tape, like the type you pass on to a friend at school, or make for a road trip. I didn’t want to be restricted by tempo or quantisation. It’s all vinyl with a dub echo unit, to bring you that tripped out touch."
