Strap yourself in for the 49th Juno Plus podcast as Scott Fraser lays down some sounds for some 2 and a half hours.
The Glaswegian’s re-emergence this year has been truly welcomed by those who buy records, with his productions and remixes appearing across numerous labels. Having marked his return to production after a hiatus with that excellent remix of Virgo Four alongside Capracara, Fraser has contrasted the previous period of quiet with a prolific 2012, appearing on World Unknown, Bird Scarer, Awkward Movements, Horn Wax, Spargel Trax and Astrolab Recordings in one shape or form. Integral to Fraser’s second coming has been old friend Andrew Weatherall, with the former contributing to the latter’s Special Emissions label and currently based in the East London studios the self confessed Luddite runs alongside the likes of Timothy J. Fairplay and Sean Johnston.
Across these releases Fraser has finessed a signature style of expansive, slow burning machine funk that veers between tempos and styles – the mutant disco of his recent Astrolab contribution “The John Hughes Excursion” rubs in an entirely different direction to his acid burned remix of Semtek’s “Bento” and the low slung and rugged “A Life Of Silence”. Given the expansive nature of his productions, it’s natural that Scott would take our open ended policy when it comes to mix length as a chance to lay down an extended set, a mix that should act as a primer for what to expect from the Glaswegian in the confines of a club.
Though a full tracklisting was not forthcoming, Scott did reveal the mix includes a healthy portion of unreleased material from himself along with Timothy J Fairplay and the Asphodells project the producer operates with Andrew Weatherall. Scott was also kind enough to answer some questions we sent over to accompany his mix, which you can read here: http://www.junodownload.com/plus/2012/12/05/juno-plus-podcast-49-scott-fraser/
