Each month, I always tune into Carhartt WIP's latest mix. They're always gold. Below is an excerpt from their Soundcloud link this month::
"Since 2011, the producer and DJ, Gunnar Wendel (a.k.a Kassem Mosse), from Leipzig, Germany has operated as part of the Ominira label – a loose collective of artists and friends that functions as a focal point for hard-to-define sounds.
Thus far, the group has released EPs and tapes by artists such as Move D, Thomas Meinecke, Beatrice Dillon, Throwing Shade, and Kassem Mosse himself – as well as under different aliases, such as The Siege Of Troy. Stylistically, there has been a focus on electronic sounds, from house to techno, as well as disparate elements of drone, noise, ambient, folk, jazz, and experimental. Its artists are equally as hard to pinpoint as its sound, with Ominira often releasing projects by newcomers, or one-off forays into different territories, typically by artists wanting the shun the limelight.
For this month’s Carhartt WIP Radio show, the Ominira collective turned in a mix that mirrors the many different facets of their unconventional, free-spirited label, with a sonically diverse show that rewards considerate ears and listeners who want to dive deep into the music."
