Prolific composer and drummer Tom Skinner produces work under the alias of Hello Skinny, and this week his brilliant debut solo LP has been released on Slowfoot Records.

If you're familiar with the output of the label you'll be aware of the hugely collaborative ethos they practice, with Hello Skinny being no exception, having worked with the likes of electronic pioneer Matthew Herbert, Rowdy Superstar and Crewdson to name but a few. We asked the London-based purveyor of experimental sound to cook-up our 27th Plastic Platform mix, and as you'd expect it's a wildly eclectic experience full of jazz-inspired moments and glorious dubby beats. It's marvelous.

A mix of records I've bought recently and music that I like, old and new, that may or may not have had some kind of influence on the making of my record. From the spaced out 1960's productions of Joe Meek to the twisted House experimentalism of Pepe Bradock and Larry Heard via some other stuff that I find inspiring. Enjoy!
