Ethereal breaks, soupy chuggers, a heady dose of Middle Eastern mysticism and much more…

Lanark Artefax – Touch Absence (Intimidating Stillness Mix) / Glasz

Coinciding with an outstanding debut for Nic Tasker’s Whities imprint, Lanark Artefax participated in an interview with Resident Advisor. It’s a great read, but doubly worth your attention seeing as it came paired with a couple of freebies: namely, the title track from an experimental, grime-focused 12″ on UIQ and an ‘Intimidating Stillness Mix’ of the opener from that aforementioned Whities release, originally found on a very limited white label sold at the South London Record Fair in 2016. Essential.
