If his 9696 Dream LP tells us anything, it’s that Evan Majumdar-Swift aka 96 Back is an imminent thinker of exactly where dance music is headed in the near future — and his thirst for outsider grooves are on full display in his exclusive Bleep mix. This heady selection of 96’s fixations from over the past few years spans frayed ghazal records, pseudo-industrial belligerence from Sheffield legends The Pressure Company and Stephen Mallinder, and abstract electronica from Maelstrom. The intricacies of these disparate choices suggest a timeline of irreverent electronic music, a lineage in which we can safely place 96 Back.
"I put together this mix attempting to soundtrack and plot my immediate influences and inspirations for the sounds that have shaped my past few years of production, looking at outside of the more obvious breadth of stuff I have on my usb and looking more at my personal listening habits." - 96 Back
