Truncate's Transatlantic Travel Soundtrack

We're pretty blessed that, being rooted in London, we don't have to contend with more than a couple of night buses at worst to be able to enjoy artists from all sides of the planet. For a lot of those artists in question however, it's an altogether different story of [sometimes] short and long haul flights along with a multitude of varying connections. Still, the time these journeys take up can be put to good use like engaging in some serious music listening and it's this activity that Truncate is giving us an insight to as he prepares to fly long haul from LA to London to join Luke Slater's Mote Evolver imprint in Room Two on 30th May. Here he he shares five of his favourite pieces of music to soundtrack a transatlantic flight...

Flying Lotus - Theme/Tesla

Truncate: I don't know how many times I've started flights with these two tracks... its just perfect for me! Actually the whole album is amazing, but these two just kick start it for me! That 'Theme' intro though!

Slum Village - 2U4U

When I'm in the hip hop mood, I always gravitate towards J Dilla and this tune in particular from Slum Village. It's so smooth and mellow but just has that head nod shit, I love it!

Minor Threat - Filler

Sometimes mid flight I like to turn to the punk stuff, maybe from the frustration from sitting on a plane for 5-6 hours with at least 4-5 hours to go... but this is some great stuff to let out some steam (mentally).

Death - Freakin Out

Death are another punk band I enjoy listening to. I recently discovered them because of the documentary about these guys from Detroit. Maybe its the angry teenager inside of me still, but I really enjoy this energetic punk music! The whole album is great to listen to too!

Jeff Mills - Essential Mix 1998

This isn't a single track but a whole mix and I can't tell you how many times I've listened to this set from the master, Jeff Mills. So many good tracks, great mixing and transitions in here and I would love to get my hands on a lot of these records. I'm still searching for some!

Saturday 30th May
