ClashMusic DJ Mix Podcast - Adam Freeland

And bonus Q&A
ClashMusic DJ Mix Podcast - Adam Freeland
Producer, musician and DJ Adam Freeland and his wide-ranging musical palette take over the Clash DJ podcast, with a mix of electronic moods including tracks from Scuba, Trentemøller, Ramadanman and SBTRKT.




Clash caught up with Adam for a chat about his mix, which was fittingly inspired by the surprise snow blizzard that caught the UK off-guard, as he reveals.




Clash: Tell us about the mood of the mix:




Adam Freeland: I did the mix the day the heavens opened and dumped a foot of snow on Brighton. That icy cold made me crave warmth, so going deep into tribal African territory felt like the natural thing to do. So it’s a mixture of stuff I’m playing in my live DJ sets at the moment, from the likes of Trentemøller, Scuba, Ramadanman, Logo, SBTRKT, Black Van, Max Cooper etc. That sounds like quite a schizophrenic selection, but the tribal rhythm, percussion and chants chopped into the mix I think really tie the flow together.




C: Favourite track from the mix?




AF: Subway, ‘DBO’, I think makes a real epic statement of intent as an intro.




C: What makes a good remix, for you personally?




AF: There’s no rule. I was going to say a remix which takes the original and embellishes and distills its qualities, but I realised that some of my favourite remixes have been of tracks that have hardly even acknowledged the original.




C: What do you have planned for 2011?




AF: Collaborating. I just really want to work with other peers and artists at the moment. I’m working on lots of different projects, from stoner shoegaze drone-rock stuff to some more dancefloor analogue-drenched stuff. I’ll be producing an album for one of my all-time favorite artists. This year I’ve started a new project with Paul Hartnoll of Orbital, we haven’t got round to deciding on a name yet...
