hexahedral part one by jesse somfay (202.00mb, 127:17mins)

canadian dj and producer jesse somfay has been releasing music on various labels, including traum and archipel (they will be releasing his forthcoming album next year) since 2004. the 22 year old was turned on to electronic music through online radio shows in the mid nineties. this lead him, as it has so many others, down the path to dj-ing.

after a couple of years of playing hard techno jesse began to reach back to the music his father had introduced him to as a child: jean michael jarre, tangerine dream, vangelis. this softer style is on full display in this weeks epic mix. this is part one of a five part series (the rest of which can be enjoyed here). we recommnend you turn off on the phone, make a couple of tea and sit down luxuriate in jesse’s world for two hours.

stevie chick is a freelance writer for MOJO, guardian, rolling stone and plan b, and editor of loose lips sink ships. sam has known him now for the past 8 years and have shared some momentous musical discoveries with him along the way – he’s as fervently passionate and committed to great music of all kinds as anyone that he knows, and is also one of his favourite writers. in the greatest tradition of rock journalism, stevie allows the reader to share in his excitement with perfectly crafted sentences that conjure up a musical picture that makes you want to run out and buy the record he’s describing on the spot!

most recently he published his opus on sonic youth entitled ‘psychic confusion: the sonic youth story” available to buy HERE or alternatively any good local booksellers, which we’re both looking forward to reading as soon as we get the chance! whilst we’re on the subject of talented hacks with books, please allow us to also highly recommend the legendary collection of creem/rolling stone journalist lester bangs finest works entitled ‘psychotic reactions & carburetor dung’ for a scorchingly passionate / funny / life changing read.

so, onto stevie’s mix, and unsurprisingly it’s an emotional journey through all kinds of scuzz, fuzz, sweat, soul and funk that makes a refreshing change around these parts to our usual four:four related business – so, what are you waiting for kiddies? go listen!
