Mix of the Week – Non Square

This week’s ‘Mix of the Week’ comes from Non Square who has compiled a beautiful mix for Max Cooper’s Mesh Series. The series of mixes is a curated series where commissioned artists compile an hour-long mix of whatever inspires them.

Non Square delivers a set that guides us across a plain of broken, jarred and rugged percussive elements all the way from 60 to 130bpm. Featuring familiar label faces and new friends, Non Square joins the dots between electronica, techno, IDM and classical electro. This mix displays little restraint and gets straight down to business.

“The artwork is designed by İdil, the person who knows me best in the world, my beloved. This artwork reminds me that our thoughts should not be shaped by other people’s concerns and that it is necessary to produce freely without being imprisoned in other’s minds.” – Non Square talking about the artwork for the mix
