Before you listen to this mix please ensure that you are strapped in safely and your mind is open and receptive. The Solid Steel mix series continues to push the boundaries.

In Hour 2 it’s Szun Waves, the newly formed group comprised of electronic producer Luke Abbott, Laurence Pike of PVT and Jack Wyllie of Portico. They released their album Sacred Walls in May on Buffalo Temple and will be performing during Nils’s Frahm residency at The Barbican, London on 3rd July. They had this to say about their mix;
“This mix is a taste of how i think about the music we make as Szun Waves. A lot of it is improvised with an emphasis on spiritual reflection and meditative trance. It moves between field recordings made of the dawn chorus in borneo, through to a rare collaboration between Don Cherry and Terry Riley and out to a short cut of a 4hr piece of Sikh temple music. I hope it gives you some space to reflect and that you enjoy the journey.” (Solid Steel)
