C Mantle’s mix of new, dark and cold wave

Deviating from our usual electronica focus, Acre Recordings co-founder (and general noisy Scottish git) C Mantle recently recorded a selection for the EOS mix collective.

EOS is a collection of Transmissions, where in a world of celebrity and hype, we aim to place music before the individual.

Typically the series (available on SoundCloud) doesn’t publish who records the mixes, and they haven’t in this case. Instead they just focus on great music from many a decent genre and vibe. It’s not just another endless techno “podcast” series available on the seemingly forever broken orange site that is SoundCloud. In the case of Mantle’s offering (not his first for the series I’m sure) he delves into something of a wave thing. Cold wave, dark wave and new wave.

Surfing the sounds (yes, fine, shoot me) of Siouxsie and the Banshees, Cocteau Twins, Regis’ Sandra Electronics, Die Krupps, Liaisons Dangereuses, Andy Stott, Fhloston Paradigm, Tropic of Cancer and of course, something from Joy Division. His mix can be downloaded or streamed (below).
