ASC :: Isolatedmix 45 // May 2014

“[...] ASC’s ‘Time Heals All’, released on Silent Season, cemented the label as one of the best out there for the year, and firmly assured ASC as a class act – not only under his more familiar drum’n bass guise, but with these new ventures into deep, atmospheric ambient soundscapes.

2014 sees James Clements revisit this approach. ‘Truth Be Told’ has already sold-out in physical formats, with a digital release set for June 1st [available here] – something most ambient artists can only dream of in today’s industry. But, if you’ve laid ears on this release already, or indeed any of his previous on Silent Season, this success won’t come as a surprise.

‘Truth Be Told’ is James’ third full-ambient release and his third on Canadian based label Silent Season. An extension of his previous sound, it’s another dream-like album packed full of textures, sound design and vivid journeys. An extension of ‘Time Heals All’ (2013), the album is tailored for the ethereal escapist, diving deep, and shimmering beautifully across nine tracks.”

Kaito aka Hiroshi Watanabe :: Isolatedmix 44 // Mar. 2014

Hiroshi Watanabe has been releasing records since 1996, with styles ranging from deep house to his more recognized ambient/electronica works on Kompakt under the guise of Kaito. A stalwart for the label for the past twelve years, Hiroshi has clocked up no less than eight albums and recently released the rather brilliant “Less Time Until The End”.

His passion for introspective electronic music is clearly visible in his latest release and his Kaito moniker is seemingly dedicated to this emotional side. Named after his son and translating as “the one that is able to explain the universe”, Kaito’s music is warm, analogue and immersive electronica, riddled with a million stories. Hiroshi’s a big believer in communicating through his music and opens up to the many ways a track can be perceived- he’s a storyteller, a painter of the night sky and the magician behind the soundtrack which accompanies them.

Hiroshi’s isolatedmix stems from this approach and takes us on a night-flight through some of his inspirations that span the spectrum of the ambient electronic genre – a perfect introduction to the newbie or an expertly curated accompaniment for the veteran. Hiroshi will be the guide, but you’ll make your own way there…”

Kid Drama :: Hyp Mix 165 // February 2014

“Damon Kirkham likes an alias, that much is clear. Formerly one half of Instra:mental (along with Al ‘Boddika’ Green), he operated as Kid Drama , before employing the Jon Convex moniker around the time the duo split around 2011. Details of the split remain sparse to this day, but what is apparent is that the sepration hasn’t stopped the flow of quality music being released by Kirkham. Always operating with a sonic pallete that took note from, but didn’t exclusively sitck to, Drum n Bass, he’s now focusing on his output as Kid Drama, teaming up with former Autonomic collaborator d-Bridge as Heart Drive for a series of podcasts and some new material. With the podcasts focusing on a glitchy half-step and synth heavy electronica, it would appear Heart Drive is a new exciting chapter in Kirkham’s perennially forward facing musical career.

Tracklist free, Hyp 165 takes in all facets of Kirkham’s career, travelling from his Autonomic days to the present day revival of Kid Drama. Jungle, Footwork, Half-Step and DnB all fit in seamlessly as Kirkham keeps the quality throughout for an hour’s worth of music that refuses to sit still for a single second.”

Synkro :: Thump Mix // December 2013

“The genre-resistant minimalist Synkro is a craftsman when it comes to scrambling pre-existing patterns, rearranging codes until new messages emerge [...]

Synkro’s kept his grip on the dubwise tendencies towards obsessive sound design and dramatic negative space, but his recent work has delivered in a wide range of tempos, taking us from clicky drum & bass to digital R&B and instrumental hip-hop. One moment he’s sounding like a stone-faced Metalheadz lifer, and the next he’s serving Shlohmo realness.”

His new EP “Lost Here” came out this month on Apollo Records • Synkro Mix for Thump – December 2013.

todos :: Kilchurn Session X – Isolatedmix 42 // Dec 2013

Spanning multiple genres, creative, unique, meticulously crafted and above all epic, todos spends months at a time putting these journeys together. Upon listening you’ll hear the blood, sweat and tears that have gone into each one.

He is a pioneer of todays shift to digital mixing, but he doesn’t use it for lack of laziness. Amongst the 47+ channels of audio and midi lie a multitude of custom samples, tempo blends and effects – something of a trademark since todos’ very first Kilchurn Session.

“Five years have passed since I completed the first Kilchurn Session mix. A mix inspired by my partner, and our Winter’s walk at Loch Awe in Scotland; a place of outstanding landscape and beauty. The challenge for me was to create a mix using tracks with extreme differences in tempo, something I would not have been able to do using a set of 1210′s and mixer.

It would comprise of a collection of personal favourite tracks, old and new, laced with soundscapes, samples and spoken word, yet not following a set genre throughout. What was supposed to be a one off, gained surprising feedback and support from Nick Warren and ASIP which catapulted it into places I never thought it would reach. The demand for another soon followed and now, 5 years on, it is with great pleasure I can bring you the tenth instalment as an Isolatedmix, and a first that incorporates original compositions by Devoted Enemies, in which I am involved” – todos.
