Headroom 09 : Fragile X presents "Voight-Kampff"
Label head, Fragile X, returns with his first mix for Bricolage in just over a year. His last offering was the April 2016 podcast full of progressive sounds and breakbeats with a slightly cinematic vibe. This time out, with 2 hours to play with, the cinematic elements have been turned up full with a sci-fi themed mix inspired by cyberpunk, neo-noir and dystopian films and novels, mainly the Philip K Dick classic, "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" aka Blade Runner. This particular listening session is a trip through your consciousness via a hybrid of carefully chosen breathtaking ambient soundscapes, cuts n clicks, dark drones, broken beat experiments and film samples. The mix almost plays out into separate scenes, with moments of calm and serenity counteracted by futuristic techno and crumbling, uniquely designed, industrial audio landscapes. There's a consuming visual element to the mix that is outlined by it's unusual drifting between lights and shadows. Get yourself comfortable, put on your headphones and let your imagination flow.
