Knife Mix 003 : Oqbqbo
Words by : Henrik Koefod Petersen
The third instalment in the Knife Mix series comes from the Copenhagen-based, Russian artist oqbqbo, whom we will have the honor of having performing at our upcoming summer celebration event on the 26th of July at Bakken. Following the release of her recent 'Untitled' tape on Posh Isolation from February, we are excited to showcase both her talents as a live performer and mix contributor, which drew our attention from her recent mix for Posh Isolation's NTS Radio residency.
Reaching from soothing ambient excursions from the likes of Positive Centre and Second Woman to Javanese gamelan workouts from Uwalmassa, the mix crosses through a wide array of genres and styles, including pulsating experimental electronics from artists such as Eartheater and dusty 2-Step from legendary UK-producer, Burial.
Apart from offering a nice way to start off your summer mornings, the mix offers great insight into the world of oqbqbo and her own music, highlighting some of the influences that perhaps help shape and define her work.
Check out her ‘Untitled’ release on Posh Isolation below and make sure to catch her at our upcoming event this Friday at Bakken.
