This latest mix from Joe Acheson (aka Hidden Orchestra) is to celebrate the release of the second Hidden album, 'Archipelago', which came out on Tru Thoughts Records in October 2012, and the second single to be lifted from the album, 'Fourth Wall / The Revival', which came out on February 25th 2013.
Like previous mixes it features all the variety of music that Joe has been listening to in the last year or so, much of which he has added to, mashed up or remixed, with lots of spoken word and field recordings. One of the themes is sleep, or the lack of it - and there's a strong theme of imagined live collaborations - Kelpe with Thom Yorke, Floex with Maxi Jazz, Crunch with Kate Bush, Tinariwen and Guru with a heavy rhythm section, Ivor Cutler and Johnny Cash trading verses over Jan Johansson's piano with added beats, Hauschka feat Bob Marley, Steve Reich with vocals from John Lennon and Finsta Bundy, and so on… full tracklist and times below.
