London-based Paul White is set to release his debut album, The Strange Dreams of Paul White, One-Handed Music next month.

It’s a kaleidoscopic, unpredictable record which is rooted in hip-hop but has rather more cosmic ambitions than that, playing homage to prog, psychedelia and idiosyncratic library music. White is one of the UK’s most hyped young producers right now, with a string of 7″s for One-Handed getting tastemakers like Mary Anne Hobbs and Benji B very excited; and while he’s undeniably part of the post-Flying Lotus instrumental hip-hop renaissance, his music stands alone, and speaks for itself.

To herald it’s arrival of The Strange Dreams of Paul White, Paul has kindly put together an exclusive FACT Mix, one which is one of our favourites to date, and certainly the most eccentric (check out the tracklisting below). It features tracks by Todd Rundgren, Eek-A-Mouse, Zodiac and umpteen new and previously unreleased productions by White himself. It’s perfectly dreamy, surreal and sensuous music for these unusually sunny days, so dig in.

[NOTE: from now on, our FACT Mixes will be available as direct downloads. You can click the link to stream the mix, or right-click and save-as to download. As a result, each Mix will only be available to download here for a period of one week. We will do our best to archive them all in the future, but in the meantime we recommend you get ’em while they’re hot.]
