ClashMusic DJ Mix Podcast - Andrew Weatherall

A brilliantly diverse mix
ClashMusic DJ Mix Podcast - Andrew Weatherall

It took us a while but we’ve finally snared the raging cad that is Andrew Weatherall and got him to whip us up a DJ mix. Predictably, it’s not half bad.




Weatherall’s influence on modern electronic music is, quite simply, massive. From his production role on Primal Scream’s seminal ‘Screamadelica’ to his output on Warp Records from Two Lone Swordsmen and Sabres of Paradise, Weatherall has been at the cutting edge for over two decades.




And despite having crafted some fine techno and electronica over the years, he also has a discerning ear for audio from a far wider spectrum, coupled with a penchant for times gone by. Thus, in his fascinating Clash mix we hear a variety of sounds that have caught Weatherall’s attention of late, including psychobilly act The Meteors, the surreal retro pop of Boots Walker and dreamy shoegaze from San Diegan fuzz-rock act Crocodiles




Weatherall is also, to put it mildly, a bit of a dub freak (as you’ll know if you’ve heard his ‘Vs the Boardroom’ series), reflected here via his interpretation of Steve Mason’s ‘Boys Outside’ and a fantastic dubbed-out remix of Trentemøller’s ‘Silver Surfer’. Also included is a ska/jazz whig-out on traditional Ethiopian music from Imperial Tiger Orchestra and some glorious drone/noise rock from post-punk act Weekend.




As always, Weatherall gleefully confounds any preconceptions and predictions and continues doing things his own way, which – as it turns out – is by far the best option anyway. A brilliantly diverse mix from a modern-day legend.
