Interstellar Funk’s entry into Bleep’s podcast series steadily gathers pace across an hour-plus run-time. The initial phase of the mix is characterised by edge-of-the-dancefloor rollers - not downtempo exactly, but certainly tracks which prioritise steady pulses over breakneck beat-tracking. Things begin to gather pace with upsammy’s ‘It Drips’, a cut from her upcoming debut LP Zoom, and these unnerving, fidgeting rhythms peel perfectly into 33EMYBW and Li Jianhon’s ‘Arthropods Continent’. From here we find ourselves in a world of atmospheric and low-slung club tunes, the intensity of which increases to a point where Interstellar Funk rounds out the mix with scuzz-techno rollers from Pessimist, Identified Patient and DJ Die Soon & Ecko Bazz.
"I focussed mainly on new and unreleased music that I bought over the last few months. The world is on hold but there is still so much good music coming out. It's hard to record a club mix in this state of mind and without an audience, but I tried to combine slower music that I like to play at the beginning of the night with some more energetic and faster tracks at the end."
