Guest Mix // Golden Retriever

Brain-expanding mix here from Portland-based experimental modular synth and clarinet duo Golden Retriever. These are broad and deep selections, reflecting the group’s myriad influences and held together by their ability to somehow cause an “instinctive, gut reaction regardless of genre or origin”. This thread of “visceral sense” has resulted in “Sza, Karlheinz Stockhausen and Archie Shepp holding hands. Big Youth and Watazumido rubbing against each other. It’s a bit of a collage, so some of the tracks are shortened and/or layered into each other.” An immense effort!

Golden Retriever’s awesome LP Seer is out now via Thrill Jockey.
