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!

Rob Glover is one-half of the British-based act and recently began his own side-project, Field Harmonics. On offer is a marked departure, choosing to focus on on a more poppier sound utilising a while array of electronics in the process - as seen in debut LP Walls. We first became aware of his work via 'Everyone' that we subsequently made Track Of The Week in our New Music Friday segment - and loved it so much we asked Rob to create this very mix for us.

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]
