New year, new purpose and we resume our archive mix series with Field Recordings on Mixcloud. This week sees shadowy Dutch collective ESHU at the reigns - their mix heads straight down into trip-hop, laid back hip-hop grooves, classic dub, soul and funk. Everything you could want to ease you in after sessions of excess over the past few weeks.

After the rollercoaster of emotions that finished 2016 – “the can you, can’t you” uploading of previously copyrighted material as part of a DJ mix to Soundcloud – we all took a week off, removed our Fitbits and proceeded to eat and drink ourselves into a comfortable narcosis. New year, new purpose and we resume our Mixcloud based series of Field Records mixes, clipped from their archives and cruelly held at arms length by the all seeing Soundcloud algorithm.

"New Year, new purpose and we resume our Mixcloud based
series of Field Records mixes, clipped from their archives and cruelly
held at arms length by the all seeing Soundcloud algorithm."

This week sees shadowy Dutch collective ESHU at the reigns. Having closed off 2016 in quite some style with the Fraktur EP on their self-titled record label, this mix dials back to April 2012 with a surprising swerve in style. Eshewing (ha) the analogue dub infused techno that you expect from the crew, their mix heads straight down into trip-hop, laid back hip-hop grooves, classic dub, soul and funk. Everything you could want to ease you in after sessions of excess over the past few weeks.

Check back next week for the final mix in our Field Recordings Archive mix series.
