Introducing a new weekly playlist guided by the contents of the week's digital programme and its associated artists, music in its surrounding orbit. We’ll be compiling each shorter weekly selection into a rolling playlist for your longer listening needs.

Our first selection draws largely from Studios resident Jacob Samuel’s audio work Eternal Life – this week’s Deep Listen feature – including tracks from Beatrice Dillon and Coby Sey, who feature in conversation as part of Samuel’s sonic collage, alongside moments from frequent collaborators Klein, j.b. glazer, Bianca Scout, and Ben Vince. We also include tracks from rkss and Roly Porter, artists featuring in our current (but temporarily closed) Gallery 31 exhibition, I Should Be Doing Something Else Right Now. Subscribe below.

Workaround Eight – Beatrice Dillon

One from recent PAN-released debut LP, Workaround.

construction kits . we assure you that this pack will be one of the most usefull if you work in such styles as bigroom house, mainroom – rkss

Studios resident rkss makes contemporary computer music, exploring the politics and aesthetics of club culture, technology and queerness. This track is taken from DJ Tools, released on UIQ, a record made entirely from a sample pack called 'EDM Kicks Vol 1' - rkss manipulated the packs ‘off the shelf’ sounds using computer music processing techniques and formed it into something perhaps not wholly anticipated by the packs creators.

Gardener – j.b. glazer, Bianca Scout

Bianca Scout’s performances and records tread a hazy line between song and collage, where the focus is surrendering one’s self to imagination and spiritual potential. Here she teams up with j.b. glazer onCompact Break track, Gardener, out on Them There.  

All Change - Coby Sey

Lead track from Whities 010: Transport 4 Lewisham, Coby Sey’s 2017 release on Whities.

Without Form – Roly Porter

Roly Porter’s collaboration with Sam Williams, the film and performance work Salvage Rhythms, features as part of Gallery 31’s I Should Be Doing Something Else Right Now exhibition.
