This week’s guest is no stranger to either Mantis Radio or our label Darkfloor Sound. A long time friend of the show Ingen, Edinburgh’s Kevin Blackwood, has guested on the show twice already, on shows 120 and 222. In effect this will be Blackwood’s 4th appearance on the show as he also featured on show 134 as one half of Savagen, alongside Savier. Savagen’s heavyweight EP Practically Educated is one of our label’s high grade techno offerings. He has also contributed to our irregular mix series Darkfloor In Session providing its 50th mix – a live hardware set with visuals by Lau.
Over the summer with everyone in lockdown he worked on a new, more melodic sound. Refining his trademark solid techno stomp. And it’s that sound that he premieres here, today.
Last month Prospekt – a new label in Cork, Ireland – released Syrup Plate, a 4 track EP with remixes from Ike Dusk and Joe Farr.
