My Needle Drops Back and Forth.
Confounding musical explorer Kiran Hebden is a favourite around these parts, so it’s always a pleasure to hear him choosing a bunch of tracks for our listening pleasure. Hebden is the guest DJ on this week’s edition of WNYU’s Beats in Space and drops a plethora of jams, from his own tracks and remixes to classics from Prince and new bits from Joy Orbison and Jai Paul. It’s a typically engaging, eclectic blend of tunes from an artist who’s as much a fan as he is a producer, and the fact that he’s still excited about new music after his pretty extended tenure is refreshing.
Beats in Space host Tim Sweeney interviews Hebden about what’s in the pipeline, and most interestingly to us we get a few scant details about the producer’s exciting forthcoming collaboration with Sublime Frequencies’ Omar Souleyman. While we don’t get much info, Hebden does let us know that the album is at least done, so we’ve certainly got something to look forward to – watch this space.
