Our guest this week is LA’s Taylor Shechet. A sound designer, synthwave producer and one third of former radio guests GRYPT – who as an unholy trinity push a sound somewhere between witch house, gravewave, goth and radio hip-hop. By day – a game developer in VR/AR (XR). By night – he’s deep in the studio. Dropping soon are releases for the aforementioned GRYPT; his synthwave project Outer Night and together with Space Anemone a drum & bass EP; and “and some game soundtrack stuff” he tells us over Twitter.
Shechet’s mixtape is a wicked selection resplendent with some of his favourites at the moment. Complete with cuts from Medulasa (the artist formerly known as Partisan), and another former radio guest SØLVE.
