$2 bargain bin mix ahead of the Bristolian’s Fabric set this Friday.
Skull Disco champ Appleblim has made an ultra-eclectic mix of vintage gems and dusty obscurities picked up during his last trip to the US.
“I recently played in New York and had the chance to go to a wicked kinda junk thrift store called The Thing in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. I’d seen Willie Burns saying he was helping out there and The Bunker promoters (shouts to Bryan & Seze!) were like, ‘you will love it there’,” he told Fabric.
“Upstairs is all house-clearance weirdness, nick-nacks, ornaments, books, all kinds of stuff, and at the back of the store and throughout their large cramped cluttered basement are just shelf after shelf and crate after crate of records! All $2 each, piled up high. This is a mix of all the things I dug there. It’s the result of a good 6 or 7 hours digging over 3 days.”
The cratedigging fanatic also shared the harrowing details of his recurring dream:
“I’m so obsessed that I actually dream about record shops […] it’s always the untouched box of ’92 hardcore or the non-existent Autechre 12″s that I’m flicking through before I either lose my wallet, or someone else buys them, and I wake up!”
As for Appleblim’s own music, his Motion Blur EP with Komon is coming out on Aus next month, plus he’s contributed a new track to Will Saul’s exclusives-only DJ KiCKS mix and finished a remix of Will Saul & Komon’s ‘2 for 1’, due on !K7 at the end of summer.
