Hyp 066: El Kid

Hyp 066: El Kid

This weeks mix comes in conjunction with one of the best looking line-ups we’ve seen in the capital so far this year, as Berlin’s cult label Workshop joins forces with Phonica, Streets of Beige and Wavey Tones to bring a bevy of talent to Corsica Studios on February 25.

The label run by experimental techno and electronic heads Low Tec and Even Tuell will touch down in South London later this month, with guest sets from regular visitors to the labels release schedule Kassem Mosse and Move D, plus a number of support figures, including this weeks mix curator, Sam Kidel aka El Kid.

Laying down a handful of releases on some of the UK’s best labels, from the burgeoning Left_Blank, to Bristol’s own Immerse and Rekordah’s much-respected Astro:Dynamics imprint, the young talent hasbeen forging out a healthy rep for himself with devastatingly good releases like his EP with Vessel on the afortmentiond Astr:Dynamics, and his latest release for Left_Blank, the ‘Hypnosis’ EP which saw his slow house grooves overshadowed by deep atmospheric work and greyscale tones.

Hyp 066 is something a bit special, as El Kid delivers almost 40 minutes of pure Workshop vibes, with each track covering either an artist who has released on the label, or an act playing on the night. You can stream on the player below, or head here for a free download.
