Zach Cooper is the talented chap behind King Garbage - and also Kuxxan SUUM but we'll get onto that in a bit.
Recently he released the third 12" of a series titled BANGERS & ASH - from the highly inventive NYC-based label Styles Upon Styles, with BANGERS & ASH exploring the dichotomous workings and sounds by esoteric, forward-thinking electronic types. The extra twist is that Cooper released material as both King Garbage and Kuxxan SUUM in the same release, showcasing two wildly different soundscapes; the only link between the work is that they're from the same mind - it's that diverse.
For our 46th Plastic Platform mix the King Garbage side of Brooklyn-based Cooper has produced a superb mix for us, that traverses through various genres of bass, soul and even jazz flirtations. Download it below, it's a magnificent journey to wrap your ears around.
