“House is our pop music”: Exploring the hybrid sounds of South Africa’s electronic scene
It's maybe not the standard mix show, featuring emotive electronic tracks by the likes of Death In Vegas, My Bloody Valentine, and Silent Servant more than techno dancefloor bangers (although there are a few of those in there, too). The mix is split into three sections, and at times the "blends" are little more than a crossfade.
Presenting an opportunity to highlight some of the less-than-obvious reference points of the album is the sort of thing that Avery clearly relishes, especially on the radio. "A Chemical Brothers ‘influences’ show was revelatory for me," Avery told Clash last year, "They played Death In Vegas, Bob Dylan, Mercury Rev but the BIG moment was when they played Temptation by New Order. I was hooked."
