Saturday mixtape : The Beach II

Featuring : Podcast


Screaming was a mistake. The creature homed in on the sound and entered through my open mouth forcing my jaw open and pushing deeper into my throat as i began to uncontrollably gag.

By the time i could close my mouth i knew the being the gatherers referred to as ‘Her’ was deep inside me, and her secretions began to take effect.

I could feel many of her offspring nestling in the sweat on the back of my neck. I yearned to prove my love, taking each in turn into my willing mouth as deeply as i could.

‘Her’ effects moistened my mouth and as each of her offspring approached i willingly enjoyed ritualistically opening my mouth and sucking every one of them as deeply inside my throat as i could.

Once my lust was sated, exhausted, i fell into unconsciousness with no knowledge of what fate had become of Hannah.

When i awoke she was next to me.

Placing her hand upon me enlarged tummy and looking deeply into my eyes she kissed me. The kiss was as cold and lifeless as her eyes.

20JFG mixtape – The Beach (II)

‘We must go find Her’ – she said, and he realised the Hannah he knew was lost forever.

Once the sun began to set we went down to the beach.

Guest mix: PYE CORNER AUDIO’s The Head Technician

Featuring : Podcast + Pye Corner Audio


This isn’t the first mix that Pye Corner Audio’s The Head Technician has fabricated for 20JFG – to experience that, you need to travel back in time to this post – but seeing as he has helmed two awesome albums that have been released in the past 9 months, it was certainly worth inviting the enigmatic engineer back for another spin.

The first of these albums was Pye Corner Audio’s Prowler LP, released at the end of last year.

And more recently, Ecstatic Recordings have supplied listeners with Zones, a revamped solo set from The Head Technician.

And here’s that mix…

Featuring : Podcast + Underspreche


One of our favourite releases of 2016 so far has been the Underspreche/Muslimgauze split on Optimo Trax.

Underspreche also have an excellent new 12″ – Subterrenus – out now on Optimo, so we asked the Italian duo to dream up an exclusive mix for us. Here it is!

Underspreche – Mix for 20 Jazz ‘Funky’ Greats

And this is what they had to say about it:

“‘Alive -Dj set’ is the name of our hybrid live where we use to play vinyl enriching the set with a live session  composed by drum machine, synthesiser, voices,samples and effects.

It’s a place for us where we could create something new experimenting every time,improvising!  In this mix we created exclusively for 20 jazz funk greats two re-edits: J.G.Wilkes Und Toresh – Comida Para Todos – Moodymann Und Ruth Yaakov Ensemble – Young Salgash Madre.

We did also some experiments mixing opera vocals on ‘Kerberos’ by Marc Romboy and Stephan Bodzin ,we played with samples ,we improvised with synths on ethereal soundscape from Jocelyn Pook  and we did a remix of ‘Nana’ by Acid Pauli .”

Guest mix: Alex Paterson from THE ORB

Featuring : Podcast + The Orb


We’re pretty psyched about the prospect of seeing The Orb live in Brixton next month, where Alex Paterson will revisit the classic Adventures Beyond The Underworld album.

This special event even features a special Orb line-up, featuring previous Orb collaborators Youth (Killing Joke), Steve Hillage and Miquette Giraudy (Gong/System 7) and Paul Cook (The Sex Pistols), among others.

People should be bored of bands performing their ‘classic’ albums live by now, but the prospect of a live Adventures Beyond The Underworld is an ambitious and exciting project – the album was conceived as a two-hour long psychedelic trip; a kind of dream music that segued surreally between ambient, progressive, psychedelic, breakbeat, space rock, hip-hop and dub lysergic states.

Not only are we witnessing this magnificence live, but we are honoured enough to have an exclusive guest mix from the master himself, Alex Paterson, drawing from and recontextualising components of his 1991 masterpiece.

Featuring : Ketsueki Sakuru + Podcast


This weekend’s mixtape comes courtesy of Giallo Disco’s mysterious superstar producer Ketsueki Sakuru!

His recent Blood Meridian EP was an appealing piece of nastiness contrived as a homage to Cormac McCarthy’s epic 1985 Western.

However, it moves with a cyborg swagger that reminds more of some anime remake of Westworld – all glitchy, synthy grit and grain.

Ketsueki explained a little about his mix for us:

“I have excellent news for the world There is no such thing as Synthwave. It does not exist. It’s a figment of a lame cunt’s imagination. There was never any such thing as Synthwave. It was the polite thing to say when you were trying to explain you were not into the boring old retro-dance but you didn’t dare to say Disco because you were afraid to get kicked out of the fucking party and they wouldn’t give you coke anymore. There’s New Beat, there’s House, there’s EBM, there’s Italo, there’s Electro, there’s Techno, there’s Balearic, there’s Spacesynth. But Synthwave doesn’t mean shit.”

Ketsueki Sakuru – Myst II Mixtape

“Ketsueki Sakuru is a mystery from no place in particular. He, (for it is a he) has only done one DJ set before, he played mostly electro. It is unlikely this will ever happen again. When word was passed down from Giallo Disco HQ, instructions to try and define a certain set of influences and / or clues were required. Much like that search for the golden hare in the book Masquerade. More clues. Soundtracks for 3D rendered outerworlds, screwgaze technobangers and don’t-dare-call-it-synthwave.”

Guest mix: BADLANDS

Featuring : Badlands + Podcast


Malmö-based producer Catharina Jaunviksna has just dropped her first full-length album as Badlands. Locus is a deeply atmospheric album that comes on like a synth-soundtracked night-time drive through a sci-fi suburbia.

“To me Locus is like watching a distant supernova through a telescope in a Spielbergy teenage room, that thing of peeking from a secure distance,” Catharina recently told The Line of Best Fit about her work. “I’m inspired by safe suburbia with a twist, and I strive to look at the world through a 35mm soft glow filter with a just-enough-eerie mystery to solve.

“That fragile balance appeals to me, and I think I need it to channel the thoughts, emotions and observations in which Locus evolved from.”

We asked Catharina to provide 20JFG with a guest mix. Read what she had to say about this excellent collage below!

Badlands – Memento mix

“Memento is a snapshot collage consisting of the work of friends, old heroes, Soundcloud/crate finds and new pioneers and sources of inspiration. I won’t go into each tune, but Freur’s ‘Doot Doot’ has been a big fave ever since I was a little kid. Not only have I cried countless teenage tears screaming into the pillow to this song, but I also used to end my mixtapes with it, and a couple of years ago I picked up on that tradition again. The song works as a reminder of who I am, and why once I started making tunes. It’s all about saying things that can’t be said, so let’s just take off together.”

Guest mix: POSTHUMAN

Featuring : Podcast + Posthuman


In a 2006 paper, philosopher Nick Bostrum defined a ‘posthuman’ as “a being that has at least one posthuman capacity.”

“By a posthuman capacity,” Bostrum explained, “I mean a general central capacity greatly exceeding the maximum attainable by any current human being without recourse to new technological means. I will use general central capacity to refer to the following:

  • healthspan – the capacity to remain fully healthy, active, and productive, both mentally and physically
  • cognition – general intellectual capacities, such as memory, deductive and analogical reasoning, and attention, as well as special faculties such as the capacity to understand and appreciate music, humor, eroticism, narration, spirituality, mathematics, etc.
  • emotion – the capacity to enjoy life and to respond with appropriate affect to life situations and other people”
A Posthuman is also a duo of London acid house producers and cousins Rich Bevan and Josh Doherty.

Their new release, Back To Acid is first-rate lysergic cyborg fizz, so we invited the duo to compile a mix for us!
