Welcome to the eighth instalment of the Construct Mix Series, an irregular series of DJ mixes devoted to the world beyond the dancefloor.
From experimental electronics and dark ambient to psychedelic pop and blissed-out indie, the direction of each mix is completely of the artist's choosing.
In keeping with the series' broad remit, featured selectors will include label owners, journalists, promoters and collectors as well as DJs and producers.
Mix Eight is from revered producer, DJ and artist, Richard Fearless.
We hope you enjoy...
Richard Fearless (Death In Vegas)
Richard Fearless is an artist and musician, born and raised in Africa, lived and studied in London, New York and currently resides in London.
Known to most as the founder of seminal pysch-rock outfit Death In Vegas, Richard's work now flows between many different mediums. A visual artist, producer, DJ and filmmaker...
Almost 20 years into his odyssey he is able to pick out certain guiding impulses which seem to govern his work, repetition, space, psychedelia...
"I'm happiest switching from one medium to another but I guess always searching for a broken beauty, light in the dark, the dark in the light..."
After moving back to London from NYC in 2012 Richard took on a studio at Andrew Weatherall's HQ where he wrote his last release under Death in Vegas 'Trans-LOve Energies' much to critical acclaim.
Richard is currently producing the second album for Dark Horses and on the cusp of launching his own imprint, Drone, as well as prepping his first major art show in London next year.
ABOUT THE MIX
"This is a journey through the murky depths of the Metal Box, Drone's shipping container down on Bow Creek. I've wanted to do an ambient mix for a while now and getting asked to part of this fantastic series gave me an opportunity to play the likes of IKe Yard, DIE Bunker, Steve Moore, Taj Mahal, Klaus Shultze, Virgin Prunes, Bee Mask, sounds that are on heavy rotation down here in the Metal Box but tracks that I rarely get to play out. Hope you enjoy this sonic trip..."
