We expected Evan Shornstein aka Photay to come through with some eclectic selections for his Bleep exclusive mix, and he doesn’t disappoint. The prodigious musician and producer’s fascinations lie with different modes of hypnotism — from the grainy micro-ambient of On Hold to the outsider electronica of Waking Hours — and the broad spectrum of influences on this mix showcases his truly voracious tastes. The frosted glass soundscape of his tune ‘Roaming’ shares a textural quality with the cries of The Last Poets’ drum circle rally, while the low-slung reggae of Brigadier Jerry speaks to Photay’s own artistic proximity to dub-like production.
"Extravagant frequencies travel a great distance. To meet and harmonize. Some for the first time. " - Photay
