A dreamy electronic mashup for you all this week, put together by Wraetlic, better known as Alex Smoke.

Releasing his first two albums on the legendary Scottish label Soma, Smoke – Alex Menzies – has become known for crafting dark techno and electronica. His Wraetlic project retains the trippy atmospherics of his other productions, but incorporates vocals and larger instrumental ideas, both of which can be heard in his Clash mix, which takes in Clams Casino, Zomby, Radiohead, Aphex and Objekt.

Here’s Menzies’ own take on his mix:

“It’s a representative selection of the music which has excited me over the last year or so, and it was nice to be able to construct a DJ mix with no limit on genre. There’s no master-plan in terms of the tone of the mix, but I tend to veer towards the murkier end of the musical spectrum. It’s one of the only mixes I’ve done digitally, as all my vinyl is in storage while I move cities, but it suits this mix of styles anyway. Particularly strong artists for me this year or so have been Hype Williams, Colin Stetson and Actress and they’re all represented one way or another. There’s also a couple of exclusives from the forthcoming Wraetlic album.”

A Wraetlic album and EPs will be released in November on Convex Industries.
