Mix of the Week: Galcher Lustwerk – Blowing Up The Workshop 12

From RA’s Top 10 Online Mixes of 2013 (this placed #1):

A breakthrough artist doing a mix of their own material is pretty novel—especially in the world of house and techno—which made 100% Galcher one of 2013’s best surprises. The mix, released as part of the Blowing Up The Workshop series, offered the first insight into the world of Galcher Lustwerk, the elusive jewel in the White Material crown. (His debut EP, also released this year, was equally promising). Lustwerk’s own description of the mix was about as understated as his vocal delivery: “some tracks and stems from 2012 compiled into a promomix.” The hour-long selection was perfect for morning commutes, lonely strolls and house gatherings. The sparse house beats rolled from track to track, eased along by Lustwerk’s laconic spoken word style. The sooner these tracks end up on vinyl, the better.

An amazingly smooth and subtle mix to carry you into 2014.

Best New Music: Burial – Rival Dealer

Rival Dealers Burial. You know the name and the sound. Anything else would be a distraction from the music. His latest EP, Rival Dealer, is yet another testament to the unmatched quality of his productions.
