Hidden Orchestra - Archipelago Mixtape



Hidden Orchestra Archipelago Mixtape

The long-awaited 'Archipelago' mixtape is now ready to go, almost a year after the last one ('Flight Mixtape', which recently earned Hidden Orchestra top spot in Paris DJs 'most downloaded mix of the year' for the second year running). Like previous mixes it features all the variety of music that Joe Acheson has been listening to in the last year or so, much of which he has added to or remixed, with lots of spoken word and field recordings. There are also once again many 'imagined collaborations' created with acapellas and mashups - Kelpe with Thom Yorke, Floex with Maxi Jazz, Thom Yorke with Four Tet and Neil Cowley Trio, Crunch with Kate Bush, Ivor Cutler trading poems with Johnny Cash's verses over Jan Johansson's piano, Hauschka feat Bob Marley, and so on…
