Mixtape Club Season 2 draws to a close with a dense and brooding session from Al Wootton.
The Trule head honcho takes Mixtape Club somewhere dark and cavernous for our twelfth entry - and although the mix is more reliant on sludgy leftfield techno than the precision-tooled UK garage records that Wootton has made his name with it, it continues the foggy sense of atmosphere that has made him one of the UK’s most distinctive artists - pitch perfect winter listening.
Everything seems to unfold at just the right time throughout - broken drum loops, crunchy stabs and loopy melodies drift and clamber over each other, building a subtle but unstoppable head of steam in the final section.
Al says: “With this mix I wanted to run through some of the artists and tracks that have really influenced where I'm at over the past year or so in terms of my own productions, and also create a mix that brought all these elements together in a cohesive way.”
