Solid Steel 3rd February - Blanck Mass, Jesse Osborne-Lanthier
Following on from 2015's appearance of Andrew Hung on Solid Steel, we're delighted to welcome fellow Fuck Buttons member Benjamin John Power under his Blanck Mass moniker. His forthcoming album 'World Eater' is coming out on 3rd March on Sacred Bones and the first single 'Please' gave us a taste of what's to come. We hear music from The Caretaker, Syrinx, Tunnel Canary, Wolf Eyes, Kiko Kids from Tanzania, label mates Uniform, Gerry Rafferty and Napalm Death, plus a clip from the time John Lydon appeared on Judge Judy! He had this to say about his mix; “The more jarring the better. These tracks were chosen as a celebration of the weird and the wonderful”.
In Hour 2 it’s over to Canadian producer Jesse Osborne-Lanthier following the release of his EP 'Unalloyed, Unlicensed, All Night!' on Rastor Norton in January. No track list, but tracks from Petit Singe, Rabit, Halcyon Veil, Renick Bell, Pascale Project, Femminilli Noir, v1984 and Knives all feature. He told us; "The mix is made of a selection of mostly upcoming, unreleased things from peers, friends, myself and my side projects. Spans across quite a variety of different contemporary club music flavours and more osé sound experimentations!”
