There’s always something coming out the speakers in the Ticket Arena office, so we thought we’d share some of the sonic splendours that soundtrack all of our hard work. Now a weekly feature that brings a different artist to the fore each Thursday, the TA Mix Of The Week scours the vaults for some of our favourite sets of old and keeps a beady eye out for the classics of the future, serving up a taste of the artists that make us happy to do what we do.
It’s always a special time when a new Jane Fitz mix is released, and last week XLR8R were given the pleasure of cutting the ribbon. Chosen to guide the journey for the 483rd XLR8R Podcast, Jane reverted to her trademark blend of brain-massage electronics and whirlwind soundscapes for another lesson in hypnosis by music. Shimmering layers of beautiful, atmospheric melodies and restrained but dependable rhythms feature in one of the most mesmerising mixes of the year, with an abundance of trippy passages to guide you from sleep-deprived daze to bright-eyed epiphany.
Jane Fitz will be piecing together weird and wonderful music again when she plays at Junction 2 in London on Saturday 10th June.
