Brownswood electr*c 3 // Artist Focus // Lost Twin
September 3, 2012
As we ready the next instalment in the Brownswood Electr*c series, we’ll be profiling the artists featured in the weeks leading up to the release on 24th September. Alex Patchwork is on compiling duties once again, alongside Tom McCarthy (Black Atlantic / Earnest Endeavours) and the pair has unearthed another remarkable assortment of underground talent.
Listen to a teaser of the compilation below.
Jammed with exclusive, previously unreleased material – the rewards of endless online trawling, Soundcloud sifting and Bandcamp rummaging – Brownswood electr*c 3 unveils brand new heat from a host of electronic artists. We caught up Lost Twin, whose track ‘Nothing’ features on the comp.
Can you tell us a little bit about yourself please. Who are you, where are you from etc.?
I am a 25 year old Spanish-born Brighton-based producer. As well as releasing music myself I am part of the three-piece instrumental hip hop band ‘Spaced Out Family’.
How would you describe your music?
Ethereal, dreamy, psychedelic instrumental hip hop / bass.
Where do you draw your inspiration?
Musically speaking, all the music I collect and sample is pretty influential in a certain way – especially obscure psych / prog / kraut records from the 60′s / 70′s and early electronic music. It’s somewhere in between those experimental textures and ambiences and the constant search for transparent pop melodies where I like my music to be. But in the end of the day inspiration can and should be found everywhere – the films I watch, the books I read, the food I eat, the people I know.
Whom do you count amongst your most significant influences when it comes to production?
Boards of Canada, Broadcast, Dimlite, Can, My Bloody Valentine, Mort Garson, DJ Shadow, the beatmakers scene from LA…
What releases / gigs are out there or coming soon?
After releasing ‘Birds’ earlier this year I am about to release the first Spaced Out Family 12” in September via Squaring The Circle (http://www.squaringthecircle.es/), and I have a bunch of remixes waiting to be released and a few collaborative projects, apart from getting ready a new Lost Twin EP and a pretty straightforward rap beats mixtape which I hope to finish before the year ends.
Do you have a current DJ mix or any tracks that are available for free download right now that we could point folks to?
Where can folks go online to check out you and your music?
What are you going to do after this interview?
I have a bunch of old LP’s sitting next to me waiting to be chopped and turned into something else. Can’t wait!!
