Brighton’s Alphabets Heaven makes exquisite music. Sure, some of it could fall loosely under the ‘beats’ umbrella but his approach is much more than a straight loop-driven pursuit. He constructs rich sound collages that are technically flawless; synthesising intricate rhythms with evocative melodies that just have that ability to plant a smile on your face.
Although his EP for Canadian label King Deluxe ‘Siamese Burn’ (his finest offering yet) came out back in March he wanted to put together a mix for us that took a look back at the release and put it in context. He mentioned over an email exchange that he’s enjoying the “quasi-sculptural approach to music that’s happening right now”, and a lot of his mix for us is trying to make the most singular entity possible from some fairly wide-ranging sources, focusing on texture rather than genre.
