Herd – Solipsistic Nation Mix 18/08/2012

Today we are going to follow the Herd, with three posts on Herd. Today is an ambient day. If you liked the Future Sound of London, you’ll love this. Free download.

This post is about influences. Herd is Jason Thomson from Corby, Northamptonshire. He takes his name from Herd Killing, the opening track on the Future Sound of London’s 1996 album Dead Cities. That album is the most clautrophobic and unsettling of FSOL’s early 90s work. Herd’s work is less abrasive and has most in common with 1994’s disturbed but more dreamy Lifeforms.

I posted this mix on tumblr over the weekend but grumbled about the talking on the intro to the podcast. Here’s the mix without the talking. Dive in and float away. But don’t let the start beguile you totally, prepare to be unsettled as the mix unfolds. This is a mix of classic IDM artists. And, yes, it does include FSOL but also some of Herd’s own work. On which more in later posts. Special mention for Ross Baker’s opener which is just beautiful.
