Bricolage : Podcast Round Up For 2018

2018 was another eclectic year on the mix front. We've been privileged to both receive and share some outstanding musical journeys from a range of revered selectors and artists.

Loui Cleghorn (NYE Live Set)

We started off the year with an exclusive set from Loui Cleghorn. Recorded live at the Tribal Pulse NYE party in Glasgow, it sees him navigate through a bunch of his own material and take the listener on an absorbing trip.


The music obssessed Russian selector, Rain flirts effortlessly between ambient and DnB when it comes to mixes. He provided us a stunning DnB mix back in 2017 so decided to indulge his quieter side in 2018 and carefully build an ambient cloud to lay our head on. Soothing from first to last.

Vivid and mangled electronica from the enigmatic Glasgow duo. This session showcases some of their favourite influences with a few of their own releases on Bricolage. Also includes an exclusive play of an as-yet-still unreleased epic they cooked up especially for the mix.

Leit Motif

We nudged into spring time with Leit Motif and a selection of deep dub techno, entrancing world electronica and crepuscular, gliding, ambient material.

Dark Fidelity HiFi (Live set for RSD 2018)

This was the chance to immerse yourself in the captivating and hypnotic sounds of the Dark Fidelity HiFi live experience. A short but sweet RSD 2018 live set recorded at 'Reel Around The Fountain' record store in Manchester.

Arran Trax

A robust and rugged hour that combines Detroit Techno with surging electro and waves of acid from Arran Trax. Complex and exciting grooves from the Scottish producer.

Fragile X
Label boss Fragile X went down the effervescent route for this summer mix. Bubbling chimes, atmospheric cuts and warm, colourful soundscapes. One for the long summer nights.

Justin Case

Bricolage newcomer Justin Case brewed up an inventive concoction of sounds that would shine on a light on some of his biggest influences. An hour of twitchy and peculiar, cosmic electronica and celestial house music.

Daniel Katinsky

A guest mix from Glasgow native Daniel Katinsky that drifts between murky and experimental structures and bold sound design. A true headphone journey full of fractured rhythms and dynamic noise.


Dense and layered electro, techno and dub from the mysterious German. Futuristic ambience helps break up the chaos among the deep bass rumblings. We still believe that this is the only mix of 2018 that you'll be able to hear Dusty Springfield transition into Underground Resistance....



A guest mix full of hard hitting techno with a dystopian twist. Full of heavy characteristics but never reaching the point of extremity. A danceable wall of sound, if you like.


A sublime guest mix born of shamanism from Amunraja to round out the year. Warm bass, laid back tribal vibes and deep psydub that envelopes the listener. Put this on and let yourself drift into another dimension.


It wouldn't be a round up of mixes without mentioning our longform mix series, "Headroom". We only had three sessions this year. But they were three cultivated and stunning musical stories.


We had a special guest session from Hohm Productions resident, Kinoko, who pieced together a beautiful sound montage of ethereal ambient and misty deep house.

Supply Fi
This session acted as a precursor of sorts to the tender and organic "...And We Become One With The Earth" EP. His two hour Headroom saw him bring together sounds from his friends and peers in a genre bending journe full of curious and dreamlike electronica.

Lying Cat

A grain and lo-fi affair from the Lying Cat. A tenebrous excursion through the slightly more disconcerted side of the music spectrum. It's awash with skewered beats, brittle textures and perfectly placed field recordings. It almost plays out like a film if you let it....


A massive thank you goes out to all the people who gave their time to us in 2018. Artists and listeners alike.
