Mixed Business - Andrew Atchison
Mixed Business is Gertrude's new and growing program of mixes and playlists created by Gertrude Studio Artists.
In the spirit of the 'desert island mixtape', artists have been commissioned to bring together a selection of their favourite music, spoken word, or experimental sounds.
Andrew Atchison - Spin, Span, Spun – Circling the Sun
This is all music that I have discovered and listened to on heavy rotation in the period since lockdowns began.
I have selected these tracks because, for me, they all share the quality of being able to disrupt - to punctuate - the day-to-day, the seemingly seamless sameness of these weirdly atemporal times.
There are moments of transcendence, energy, gabber-y intensity, motivating rhythm, joy, humour, ersatz velocity, and spaciousness scattered throughout.
Every one of these tracks manifests sensory pleasure and intelligence in a singular expression, which appeals to me and, I think, characterises the best art.
Played loud enough there are a healthy number of ‘4am’-type danceable moments, too. That’s it, my dance about architecture.
