Featured Guest

I was first introduced to Simplicity Is Beauty‘s work via Rolf Mulder’s The Public Stand and his label’s release of Operator’s Manual. Quite the introduction. Proper deep business on that opener, it should be knee deep in film imagery.

As I do with every guest on Mantis I asked Jason if he’d give us an insight of his music to this point. He kept things brief:

I’m just a music fan, trying to write some of his own.
Recent airplay and support from Dave Clarke, BBC 6 Music, Laurent Garnier, The Hacker, Arnaud Rebotini, The Public Stand and Darkfloor.

He did also provide an introduction to tonight’s mix, which as the following will express expect a diverse selection:

Welcome to ‘Cut Up, Fucked Up’; a selection of stuff I like, sliced, diced, punked and funked. Sometimes brutal, sometimes beautiful. Warning – purists may not like everything they hear. Personally, I’ve never given a fuck about genres, if I like it… I like it. Hope you do too. Cheers for listening.
