Hypermagic 005 - Whirldfuzzz and Sofie K

by Orchid

  • Cassette

    The fifth mixtape in the series is split tape by Whirldfuzzz and Sofie K.

    Whirldfuzzz brings an offering of some of our favourite guitar-driven music from the 1960s-80s with a few seriously synth-heavy numbers and one exception of a new unreleased track from contemporary German band Lassie. The project began with sharing some of their most-loved sounds with Sofie K from a selection of countries from around the world, as well as giving us the opportunity to discover new sounds from places we haven’t explored. Expect Serbian post-punk, Barbadian rock n roll, Brazilian tropicália, as well as tracks that encompass multiple genres - Whirldfuzzz

    Whilst this mix is under an hour, I wanted to include as many styles as possible. It spans from Croatian oddball synth wave to stomping Mexican downtempo punk, Ghanian techno, and Japanese electronica. When initially brainstorming ideas for the tape with the Whirldfuzzz girls, I had a (fairly cheesy) idea for their side to represent sounds of the past and mine to embody sounds of the future. Although we didn’t actively flesh out this concept, the two sides follow each other chronologically as this mix features only music from 1980 onwards - Sofie K
