Partisan started at the back-end of 2014 as a project wholly inspired by the latest wave of instrumental grime, hardcore kicks and “power ambient” music (think Ben Frost and TCF).
In exploring the spaces between these ideas, I’ve managed to churn out 4 EPs and numerous singles in Year 1. As I begin the new year, again in a germinal state, quite literally revisiting the drawing board for the project, I’m re-calibrating influences, re-adjusting goals and expectations in line with the new ground broke by others in the year prior. My session mix for Mantis Radio will be a showcase of these adjustments: the things I’ve fallen in love with, the things that have added to the discourse of experimental club music, the things that have opened my eyes to new avenues. Investigate, experiment, re-assess goals, and go once more into the deep, dark night of human creativity.
