Friday Mixtape: Memory9 – Red Planet Blues

Memory 9, the moniker for prodigal beatmaker Gadi Sassoon, has bestowed a transcending diversity in his releases, moving between genres as varied as jungle, jazz, hip-hop and footwork. These constantly-shifting soundscapes might have something to do with his training as a jazz guitarist and a slide towards the organic side of musical combinations. Naturally, Sassoon has shed another musical layer and emerged with a stripped back and beatless (not The Beatles) mixtape, which we have the ambient pleasure of offering before the weekend cometh.

The mix titled ‘Red Planet Blues’ is described as having ‘no beats here, just red wintry slumber’, and that’s exactly what we get in the 30 minutes of milieu progressions. Gliding between the likes of Four Tet, Boards of Canada and Machinedrum, this should provide the perfect remedy to ease you through to the weekend:

- James Embiricos

Memory9′s new Red Falcon EP will be released on 16th December
