Max Cooper – Synesthetes Museum (Magnetic Mag Mix)

An adventurous journey through the British Museum and Max Cooper’s ingenious mind, this mix spans ambient, techno and historical recordings, all assembled around a turn-by-turn visit through the museum: “I mixed it in a way to be like a journey though the museum, turning corners and regularly coming across something totally different and unexpected, with each track being like a different exhibit.” More info.

Mach V – Send In The Drones


Send In The Drones. Send in the beauty. Send in the classic ambient. Send in a few upcoming releases whilst you’re at it. Send in Mach V.

If you want any of the above, look no further as our favourite curator of all things musically brilliant, Mach V has put together a sublime ambient mix. Over one year in the making, Mach V has been intending to produce a ‘drone’ mix for some time now, but just as I find when mixing, he had little influence on what made the cut when faced with such amazing music. The drone is in there, but it’s peppered with some beautiful moments that break the drone-only mould and keeps this mix interesting throughout.

Like a true gentlemen, Mach V has paid homage to his sources and included some kind words about ASIP and the brilliant Futuresequence in the write-up. He’s also included an exclusive we were lucky enough to receive from Umber and two upcoming tracks from the ASIP Places Series too. One from Ex Confusion and another from Mach V’s audio-visual maestros, Echaskech. More to come on those releases soon, but for now, go ahead and join the inspiration of Jean “Moebius” Giraud and drift away with the drones.

You can read the full post on Mach V’s blog here. Also included below is a brilliant video put together by Mach V and featuring ‘626’ by Echaskech, forthcoming on the ASIP Places Series.

isolatedmix 07 - Mach V (Echaskech)

Their productions on ‘Shatterproof’ and ‘Skechbook’ span delicate ambient, dub and dark rolling breaks,  and with such diverse electronic sounds, I’ve always wondered what keeps Dom, Andy and Mach V from Echaskech ticking along…

For isolatedmix 07, Mach V has stepped up to select a few choice current cuts from the Echa-mp3 player for your delectation and delight.  Moving from nu-psyche, through folk, ambient, downtempo, electronica – even dipping it’s toes in to shoegaze – this audio array will hopefully offer you some insight into the diverse musical interests that this group has. There’s even an exclusive Echaskech remix of The Beaufort Scale’s ‘Dreaming in Binary’ – a perfect climax to a stunning mix.

At the moment, things continue apace at Echaskech HQ; as well as busily remixing and writing new material for the summer, they’re working with Roots Manuva on his up coming tour, sorting out the live show for Digital City, 27th March and have just heard that their highly successful residency at Concrete at the Hayward Gallery will resume in July, this year.

Echaskech are currently planning their festival season for 2010 and already have several festival bookings that they’d love to tell you about, but can’t at present… you’ll just have to keep your eyes on their website.
