At Home With: object blueMon 1st Feb
Next up on At Home With we get to know fast rising talent, object blue.
A sound artist, producer and live performer, London-based object blue is on the edge of the UK’s experimental club scene. Born in Tokyo and raised in Beijing, her distinct influences are fused together in off-kilter productions, blending mind-warping techno with glitchy textures and bass heavy grooves.
object blue’s selection of recent and all time favourites include CCL, SIMARA, Jasmine Infiniti, M.E.S.H and more.
A Recent Standout Mix:
CCL - Juanita's Mix
CCL is such a knowledgeable selector and I love their imaginative, effortless mixing. A couple months ago I was walking at night through deserted Shoreditch, listening to this, and I saw a derelict-looking building with pale blue light seeping out the windows, it was a beautiful moment.
An All Time Favourite Mix:
SIMARA - LOVES TO DANCE
OK I talk about him all the time and I always say he's my favourite but I gotta say it again. This is 100% unreleased demo mix from 2016, it's never left my mind. especially when the "hot and wet" edit comes in. if I hadn't found SIMARA (now YASHA), my music would sound very different now.
A Recent Standout Release:
Jasmine Infiniti - BXTCH SLÄP
Deep dive into the world of Jasmine Infiniti. Sublime.
An All Time Favourite:
M.E.S.H - Hesaitix
How could I choose? ! maybe Hesaitix by M.E.S.H?
United in Anger: A History of Act Up
There is no other documentary work that changed me like United in Anger has. I think it's especially relevant now that humankind is going through a pandemic. As a young leftist, I witness constant disillusionment and division amongst the left, and I think we all can learn invaluable lessons from ACT UP. Also, if you can support the director, there's a higher quality version available on Vimeo for £3.
A Good Watch:
