Audio: Boxcutter - FABRICLIVE x Planet Mu Mix

Posted in Downloads Mixes on Tuesday 18th June, 2013 by Smash Gordon


We’ve fully noted this before but there’s always been a lot worth following the Planet Mu label for. As an outfit Mu’s one of the more prominent labels that’s managed to twist and shift and stay ahead of the curvature of modern electronic music, most recently housing work from a torrent of pioneering juke/footwork artists. It’s a trend you can trace much further back though; all through dubstep and the offshoot genres it spawned, Mu was there at the beginning. And the Northern Irish producer, Boxcutter, aka Barry Lynn, is one of the artists whose music helped put them there.

Under his latest guise as The Host, Lynn explored more of the label’s modern palette, toying with the speed and density of juke and footwork to make a self-titled album that balanced his open ear for space and melancholy melody with the consistent nagging energy and rapid-fire percussion of his label mates. So it’s quite fitting that an artist who’s grown and repeatedly experimented alongside his recorded home should be present on the line up for Planet Mu’s first Room Three takeover.

On Friday 12th July, Boxcutter tops a lineup that includes Ital Tek and Konx-Om-Pax alongside sets from the team behind the label and ahead of the event he put together a mixtape that blends a smattering of his own material (both as Boxcutter and as The Host) with tracks from footwork’s original talents RP Boo, DJ Roc, DJ Spinn and DJ Earl alongside Om Unit’s Phillip D Kick experiments, tracks from FaltyDL and more.
