Interviews & Features

MOUNTAINS Feeding The Landscape
Interview with Brendon Anderegg and Koen Holtkamp
Fond of clear and delicate soundscapes, Mountains’ Brendon Anderegg and Koen Holtkamp have been gathering praises since the release of their debut album last year. With respective solo projects and a record label under their belt, the pair could have taken it easy, but, following a first live collaboration, they decided instead to join forces. With their second album, Sewn, just out, we took the opportunity to chat with them both about combining acoustic and electronic instruments, playing live and choosing a name that relates to their work.

NIGHTMARES ON WAX Now And Then
Interview with George Evelyn

In A Space Outta Sound, a luxurious blend of soul, hip-hop, dub, and jazz-fusion is a signature George Evelyn release. On this, his fifth album on Warp under the Nightmares On Wax moniker, Evelyn’s love of analogue over digital and his willingness to embrace the accidental in the recording process is very much to the fore. One track, Deepdown, for example features vocals from random passers by whom Evelyn dragged off the street and into the studio. “If it was all too perfect it wouldn’t have had that kind of rough and ready atmosphere to it that gives it its magic,” explains Evelyn. The track also features his 4-year old daughter. “She was the most awkward artist to work with on this album” he laughs. In the 16 years since his first releases, the seminal tracks Dextrous and Aftermath, Evelyn has come a very long way indeed. He talks to Stuart Aitken about first meeting Warp’s Steve Beckett, breaking with the Soul City Rockers back in the mid-eightiess and why he was always preferred Warp to James Lavelle’s Mo’ Wax.

TRUNK RECORDS Found Sound
Interview with Jonny Trunk

Some of the most interesting electronic music to have been released over the last ten years or so has been overseen by Jonny Trunk, proprietor of Trunk Records. Curiously though most of these releases are not the product of young bedroom visionaries hunched over the latest computer equipment, but rather they have been rediscoveries of lost gems made by eccentrics using what would now be considered rudimentary equipment. From Basil Kirchin’s soundtracks to imaginary films, to the pioneering music concrete of one-time Spitfire pilot Desmond Leslie, Trunk Records acts as a powerful reminder to all that less can often be more. As a new piece of salvage work, The BBC Radiophonic Workshop’s music for 70s TV show The Tomorrow People, approaches its release date, Jonny Trunk spoke to Stuart Aitken about his appreciation of good old fashioned British naivety and his love of the eccentric underdog.
