Plastic Platform C44: Birthday Edition - oOoOO
The 405 is five years old, and like every spoilt five year old we have been demanding gifts from the people that we like.
So we asked San Francisco-based Chris Dexter to do two things for us, and he has accepted both requests. We are delighted to unveil oOoOO (the real name) as our secret headliner for our special birthday show at The Old Blue Last tomorrow (Saturday 27th April - details here) who joins the likes of East India Youth and Butterclock on the bill.
The second request was for the purveyor of mercurial electronic-beats to create a mix for the occasion, and in typically genre-defying style that's what he's gone and done - the 33 minutes has got its body in party-mode but introspective mind wandering the menacing dimly-lit streets. oOoOO recently announced his new single 'Stay Here' featuring. M.L., that is taken from upcoming 'proper' debut LP Without Your Love, after a smattering of beguiling EP's on Tri Angle Records. The LP is out June 24th on his own new label, Nihjgt Feelings.
Download the pretty darn hot mix below - and see our Facebook event for more details on our birthday show. We advise you to get there early!

Mark McGuire is a thoughtful guy who spends a good deal of his time searching for amazing music within himself and the entirety of collective human intelligence, so we asked him to share just a sliver of that knowledge with us for our Plastic Platform series. [read more]
We're now 6 mixes into our 'Plastic Platform' series, and today we bring you one of the best. In fact, we actually think this is one of the best things we've heard all year, but we expected nothing less from this hour long Sun Araw vs. Heatwave mix. It really is quite incredible. [read more]
