Hear The Gaslamp Killer’s BBC Essential Mix, featuring rare Flying Lotus and Hudson Mohawke material
The Gaslamp Killer is the L.A. beat scene’s resident Lord Of Misrule, and the BBC have give him two hours to play with on a corking Essential Mix.
GLK stopped by the BBC last weekend for his debut Essential Mix. In case you missed it, there was a glut of interesting unheard and rare material from some major names. GLK’s old mucker Flying Lotus makes numerous appearances, with rarity ‘Elephant Ride’ cropping up alongside more familiar fare. A previously unheard track from Hudson Mohawke, ‘Multi Orch’, also features.
Plenty of beat music royalty make the cut – Harmonic 313, Daedelus and J Dilla all crop up – and DJ Rashad, Ennio Morricone, Radiohead (twice!) and Black Sabbath are also repped. The two hour mix can be streamed here - head to the Beeb to cast an eye over the tracklisting.
The Gaslamp Kiler’s debut LP Breakthrough is out now. A rip of that HudMo snippet is below.
