Into The Woods with Archie


Next up in our Into the Woods podcast series is a suitably summery mix blending house and breakbeat from Flux resident Archie who performs this summer at Farr Festival 2018.

Archie is a Flux resident and is one of the minds behind the record label. His passion for playing out forward-thinking music has taken him around the UK and Europe, whilst closer to home he also co-runs the London-based party series, Mavrik.

Over the past 6 years Flux has evolved from a music blog to incorporate their own record label - releasing music from the likes of Shedbug, Laroze and D.B.

To offer further insight into his mix, track selection and overall atmosphere, Archie wrote a few words that you can read down below.

Archie Setup

"I usually find recording mixes quite stressful, taking some time to decide on what the theme should be. For this podcast it seemed easier – I based it largely on a feeling of exploration and adventure, as the “Into The Woods” title suggests. I wanted to keep the tracks quite minimalistic but not minimal, with some emotional quality to them. The tracks work slowly but surely towards Gacha Bakradze’s “River” at the end, which, in my mind, is about as beautiful as electronic music gets. 

I don’t think there’s a certain place or situation for the mix to be listened to – but having listened to it a few times now, I think any journey suits it well (just make sure you have a window seat). Many of the tracks I have included are from forthcoming records on our label – I guess it is quite typical of people running labels to do so, but we wouldn’t have pressed them to vinyl if we weren’t proud of them, and hence I want to play them as much as possible."
