Mix of the Week – Rival Consoles

In the light of his album, ‘Articulation’ for Erased Tapes, Rival Consoles shared a selection of tracks for Bleep that complimented that very album.

Opening with the seemingly weightless yet driving pulse of Ostgut Ton’s Barker, the mix moves deftly through further immersive cuts from Four Tet, Stimming & Marcus, and the blissful breaks of Skee Mask. The mix also sees Rival Consoles weave in the fluid contemporary orchestrations of Actress x LCO, the amniotic drone of Alessandro Cortini, and the complex ethereal delights of Max Cooper.

Some serious heads down vibes and after-hours euphoric drama all in equal measure. A mix to kick back to and appreciate in its full and true glory.
