mix series

This week’s mix comes courtesy of the dance music collective Grade 10 and photographer Ollie Kirk. Their newest collaborative project, ‘TEXTURES’, seeks to explore the relationship between the varied sounds of Grade 10’s roster and Kirk’s corresponding imagery.

Kirk describes the project: “We work closely together so it made sense to put my images with their sounds. The crew have an eclectic but distinctive sound so that’s something I’ve tried to recreate - pairing my own striking images of dark landscapes and natural backdrops with each Grade 10 artist’s individual and personal audio segment.”

The mix they’ve provided is full of exclusive tracks that further explore other-worldly soundscapes, brooding static refrains and hi-tempo spacey techno. If this piques your interest, their full project is being released on a limited run of cassette tapes, accompanied by Kirk’s prints.
