Remember Graham Phillip D’ancey and Sounds of JHS 126 Brooklyn? Unless you’re a crate-digger with a penchant for obscure retro electronic music, odds are you’ve never heard of either. Fortunately, DJs like Cut Copy‘s Dan Whitford are generous enough to share their hard-won discoveries with the rest of us.
Cut Copy was originally the brainchild of DJ, musician, and designer Dan Whitford, who put out two releases under the “CC” moniker before fleshing out the project as a full group. So it should be no surprise that Whitford knows how to piece together an amazing DJ set all on his own. And with Cut Copy’s latest release, Zonoscope, pushing the project’s sound further into new territory than ever before, we’re starting to glimpse the versatility shown in this mix.
The set begins with a hazy warp of found recordings by the seemingly nonexistent (and possibly misspelled) Santuary Village before running the gamut between Turkish psych-pop, South African agit-funk and 80s hip-hop. Suffice it to say, very few who listen to this mix will walk away without encountering some delightful surprises.
