Initially a member of the Apeiron Crew collective, Emma Blake was already filling rooms across the world with her vivid selections and methodical mixing. However, once she began working solo under the moniker of Solid Blake, she started afresh carving out a new sonic identity that included some electro-tinged productions.
Between putting out excellent tunes for Bronktoys, Outer Zone and most recently Monkeytown (with an appearance on Modeselektor’s Modeselektion Vol. 4 compilation) she diverts towards a more direct, demonstrative path with Danish techno collaborator Ctrls under the guise of Historical Repeater.
With their latest release, ‘Scientific Calculator’, a thwacking techno thumper of an EP out now Sunil Sharpe’s Earwiggle imprint, she was asked if she could take a different, more adventurous approach to her guest mix for Newtype Rhythms. Emma obliged and provides a hefty mix full of sonic surprises. Her mix starts at around 55 minutes in, with resident Sheepshead providing a different sort of warm-up mix to ease things in. Lay off the Codec conversations and get ready for an unexpected journey.
