Against the Clock is a series where we give an artist 10 minutes in the studio and see what they come up with. You can watch all the past episodes here.
Up next, Leeds duo Mak & Pasteman take the challenge in their North London studio. Since debuting in 2011, the pair have been bringing a rugged – and as we find out in this ATC, hardware-driven – approach to house and techno to labels like Naked Naked, Shifting Peaks and Lobster Boy. Their tactics here are pretty simple: set a key and let the machines speak for themselves.
Mak & Pasteman will be performing at W.A.R! & Sankeys’ Shelter night in Ibiza on August 21, with sets also coming from Doorly, Chris Lorenzo and some special guests. Head here for tickets.
