At Home With LWE: 10th August

Mon 10th Aug

Another week, another At Home With LWE selection. Like many offices, ours is still closed and we’re working via Zoom calls and Google Hangouts - we miss each other and we miss the dancefloor, but music is still our saviour. Today’s selection spans dreamy electronica, housey cuts and a little bit of acid, from our casa to yours.

K-LONE - Wisdom Teeth Label Mix

Bristol based producer and Wisdom Teeth co-founder, K-Lone is at the helm for the label’s first ever mix. If you’re already a fan, you’ll be psyched to hear this expert weaving-together of 18 stellar Wisdom Teeth tracks, an ethereal and hypnotic blend. If you aren’t already a fan, this is a decent introduction to the labels’ brand of airy jams.

Peach - Honey Soundsystem Mix

Honey Soundsystem always bring the vibe to any line-up, and this time Junction 2 favourite Peach is supplying their mix series. This is some much needed upbeat energy to kick our week off on exactly the right note. It’s bouncy, it’s sunny, it’s making us wish we were in San Francisco at a Folsom Street Fair party, drink in hand and Jackie House on our arm. And who doesn’t want that feeling, honestly?!

IZCO - Brighter Days (Silas Remix)

The proceeds from this remix EP go to Hackney Winter Night Shelter, a cause we’ve long supported at LWE. This is a great reason, but not the only reason to buy it. It’s a groovy, jazzy, bassy little number from Oxford don Silas, and we love it. The original is decent too, so why not make it a double purchase?

Mr. Fingers - Outer Acid (Upsammy Remix)

As the saying goes, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, and thus you might wonder why a Mr. Fingers track would need remixing - but Netherlands based producer Upsammy has done a top job on Outer Acid, taking the acid squelch of the original and rendering it dancefloor ready. A minimal bomb.

RA Exchange -The Power Of Radio

During lockdown, radio seems to have become more important to many, a live connection to a community of listeners all tuning in at the same time, a distraction and an element of routine. Whilst we can’t be together in the club, community radio is holding space for underground music, providing an outlet for curators to showcase new sounds. This podcast from RA explores why this format is so vital, with broadcasters Jamz Supernova, Hannah Walker Brown and more.

Nicolas Jaar - Live At Boiler Room NYC

Nicolas Jaar was at the top of his game back in 2013, and in truth we’ve always loved him. His sets are a pleasure to watch, and you can really feel the energy in this one. Jaar is all over the controls; what’s he doing with that radio? Your guess is as good as ours, but it works. One of Boiler Room’s rarer selections - it’s still novel, 7 years on.
