Buffalo Tide is the working moniker of Brighton based Chris Oliver, a young producer and co-founder of the BLBX collective, who you may know through releasing fresh talent like Jermaine Soul and Diamond Cutters over the past 12 months.
Tracing the line between classic mid-90s electronica, experimental inversions by the likes of Shackleton, and his own take on the current bass sounds emanating from across the UK, Oliver’s latest ‘Arabia’ EP saw him garner support from Mary Anne Hobbs as his sublimely atmospheric production work came to fruition across 4 tracks of wistful electronic orechestration.
His Hyponik mix sees the Canada native travel through a range of influences and current interests, heading for roads not normally travelled in our series. From Alice Coltrane, Mogwai and Prefuse 73, to the bustling energy of The Mars Volta and Clams Casino, the mix manages to represent all that you hear in Buffalo Tide’s own music (much of which is featured here), and then some. Enjoy.
