Texture Tape 011:
Jolly Brolly display a deft touch in this lurching dose of dubwise delights. Both heady and headsy.
What were your ideas or plans going into the mix?
Our planning was only really based on a few songs that we’ve wanted to mix but haven’t been able to in a club context. Then we went from there.
What’s it like playing as a duo? Do you each have particular quirks or traits?
Josh – it’s definitely good because Ollie can and will be brutally honest when something doesn’t work. And vice versa when it comes to Ollie’s obsession for darude sandstorm remixes
Ollie – I think it is usually ok except for when Josh holds back my creative flow. He just doesn’t seem to understand the value of a well placed remix of darude sandstorm, but I guess creative differences are inevitable in a duo which pushes boundaries in the way we do.
Ok, what have been your favourite releases recently?
Josh – Taking the liberty of 3 months: Perko’s Nv Auto or the new James Blake.
Ollie – Taking a liberty of 6 months: The Suspiria soundtrack by Thom Yorke or Twisted Love/About to Burst by Justin Cudmore
