It is an absolute joy to get an exclusive mix from Woodstock, NY’s Photay, an artist (dare I say it, prodigy) that never ceases to inspire our ears. This young man caught our attention from his very first few releases including his self-released debut “1st” along with his string of brilliant EP’s and album on Astro Nautico.
Even though he came up within what we could call the “beat” scene, his musicianship has shown through each project and sees him evolve into more ambitious music with each release, similar to the musical trajectory of contemporary beatsmiths Flying Lotus, Natureboy Flako, Bullion and Daedelus to name a few.
We gave him carte blanche for this mix. Hope you enjoy!
@photay: “A sequence of frequencies transmitted by friends far and wide to energize and strengthen currents. Low end resonance for unity, awakening and social justice. Use music to rejuvenate and sustain protest.”
