Greetings, featherless bipeds.
We’re back again for more techno, this time with Brighton’s eclectic Mystery Selector. (Main website here). We actually met, only last week at Textured Silence, the night he’s currently promoting at a very nice little underground bar up there, but he seems like a top bloke and I enjoyed what he was playing, so here we are. We’ll be having him back to play some psy-dub soon, as well.
He describes his stylistic tendencies thus:
The music I play spans many genres but can loosely be split into two categories: psychedelic dub, glitch and trip-hop fused with world beats for warm-up slots, after-parties and bar/lounge events; and minimal/progressive techno and trance for club nights, often including live or tribal elements such as ska, reggae, celtic or other roots music. I’ve refined my playlist over the years to create a distinctive sound; recognisable across many genres which can be adapted to suit particular events and audiences.
If you happen to be in the area on April 18th, pop along to the Textured Silence at Brunswick Cellar Bar in Hove (BN3 1JL). (The May 16th show mentioned in the recording has been temporarily postponed).
Furthermore, there’s also the Sunday chill sessions at the same venue, on 26th Apr with Mystery Selector, Omnebula & Koji Maru, for more downtempo dubbiness. I won’t mention all his other gigs as there’s a long list of them and they’re all on the websites I’ve linked to.
We’ve also got a guest mix in hand from Textured Silence resident, Epomeni_Stasi, who’s been doing his thing out in Athens for some considerable time and may be the only person I’ve ever met besides myself who plays dub techno. More on that, soon…
I’ve opened up with some of my usual dark haunting techno, after which Mystery Selector takes it down a more quirky route, followed by my semi-traditional “something different” – in this case a reminder that I’ll be playing on the chill stage at Triplicity in Exmoor, on the May bank holiday weekend. Lots of love in the chat, as is often the case.
