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!

Below you will find the playlist equivalent of the week we've had. Enjoy. [read more]
Last week we brought you the first edition in our new mix series Plastic Platform, which featured a killer mix curated by STRFKR. This weeks edition is from the wonderful Keep Shelly In Athens. Are you excited? Well you should be. You're about to go on a fifty minute adventure, which is sure to leave you in an orgasmic heap on the floor during its climax. Have a listen, and make sure you read their rather amazing mix description. [read more]
The 'Plastic Platform' series continues with this amazing 45 minute journey through the cosmos courtesy of Sunik Kim, aka Beat Culture. Interestingly enough, this is the second mix we've had from a teenager (see: J£ZUS MILLION) - which solidifies the notion that talent has nothing to do with age. [read more]
