Prolific French producer Mael Péneau aka Maelstrom swings by for an exclusive Bleep mix, and unsurprisingly lives up to his tumultuous moniker. His hour-long exercise in combing through his hard-hitting obsessions begins firmly on the left-field with some viscous acid from short-lived Toytronic super-trio Abfahrt Hinwil, coasting down the low-end into the hardened balaclava-donning electro of Megaphonim and the dextrous lo-fi rhythms of Minor Science. Alongside his selections of underground innovators and contemporary big-league players, Péneau delivers a host of rugged techno brick-breakers from his 2021 LP Rhizome.
"This mix is an experiment into understanding how my album (and the new direction I’ve taken with my productions) could eventually translate to a dance floor. I’ve pushed my set into a more narrative shape than what a DJ set usually is about, with different speeds, spaces and energy levels, using sources from times and places that engage in a dialogue that I thought would be interesting .
