Tuesday Born is a 21 year old pianist and producer with a bubbling penchant for soulful R&B.
Previously re-worked by the likes of Vondelpark and Two Inch Punch, he draws his musical inspiration from two long spells in Columbia and Ghana with both cultures subtly manifesting themselves on new track ‘Wake’.
To mark his forthcoming debut live show in Dalston on August 8th, the London producer has compiled an exclusive mix for Clash. Here’s what inspired him to put it together...
"I put this mix together as one that is bounded by what I consider some of the best innovative and original electronic/acoustic music around at the moment and from the last year.
Ta-Ku, Sunship, FLako and others are some of my favourite producers around at the moment so dropped a few of their tracks, as well as two tunes from the latest Hawk House (previously AYellowMan) mixtape, which has a real nice sound and deserves some love. Have a lot of time for those guys. J Dilla got a look in as well, talking about innovators.
I think a lot of music within the electronic spectrum now days sounds very samey and lacks soul and thought, but of course there are always producers breaking boundaries and defying the norm, which is what I tried to showcase in this mix."
