About this item

Drop draw tackle here from Welsh electronics maverick DJ Guy. A producer who's been active since the very early nineties, previously releases from his vast archive have graced labels such as La Beauté Du Négatif and All Caps. A strongly individual character who's acid-tinged productions touch on techno, electro, Cornish-style freakouts and noisy ambience; you can usually spot a DJ Guy joint from its advanced programming, highly detailed textures and vintage hardware presence.

For newcomers to this guy's sound, this expansive double pack from Exotic Robotis is more than a good place to start - it's a perfect snapshot of his multi-faceted sound - from the blissed out UK techno of "July 1St 2014 Broke (2017 edit)" (excuse the track titles - alot are simple time stamped entries) thru the winding soundsystem swagger "Oct 2nd 2014 Seq" which owes as much to Sheffield as it does to London and Detroit. There's some excellent displays of more downbeat, chillout flavas - the opening trio of track offering relaxed breakbeats and velvety textures over endorphic strings and bubbling keys.

Frankly, everyone needs a bit of DJ Guy in their collection; and this is a superb collection of tracks that really show off one of Wales' best, yet strikingly underground producer. Totally recommended.
