Dutch duo Weval were on the receiving end of a lot of Internet-lovin' (ourselves included) last month thanks to the release of debut EP Half Age.

Harm Coolen and Merijn Scholte are the producers (and friends) behind the project who infuse their differing musical backgrounds to create a hybrid of house, hip-hop and even some jazz flirtations - all under a forward thinking electronic blend. Also evident is a cinematic feel to their sound, a fact that is not surprising given that they met at film school - and in this Plastic Platform mix created for us this aesthetic is very much present in a subtle way.

Download below and get your face absorbed by this runaway train of a mp3 that possesses an intriguing momentum, and their EP is now out via Atomnation. A new album is stated to be on the cards later this year.

"Selecting the tracks for this mix was a very interesting process this time around. We started with a large variety of music, without thinking of the coherence between the tracks. So, we had this broad selection of awesome tracks, starting with funk at 85 bpm, ending with weird electronics at 132 bpm. After we tried to combine all these tracks together, we came to one conclusion; for a short mix like this, we would have to kill our darlings! So that's what we did. The mix is more electronic now, as it builds up to our favourite track from Caribou, with a little Weval touch. An edit we have made especially for this mix.

We hope that the mix has become a nice combination between variation  and continuity. But that's up to you."
