The Hot Chip Mixtape
Psychedelic rock innovators Hot Chip delve into the world of vintage soul teamed with pioneering techno for a climactic mix session.
Since forming back in Putney years ago, Hot Chip have been propelled to the forefront of the UK electropop scene with a string of releases through EMI. Their latest record, One Life Stand, recently landed to positive critical acclaim and sets out to be warmer, deeper and more stripped back than their previous record. A nod towards their influences subtly hidden in this ace mix, methinks.

A smart move; he’s since dropped music on a number of great labels including Warp, Ninja Tune and his most recent folly We Hear You on Planet Mu. Open your ears for this one.
