This mixtape by Florida born, Berlin based musician Easton West is dedicated to our December exhibition Order/Disorder and is filled ambient tunes, backpacker hip hop, dub, psychedelic, post-punk and other delights.
Mr. West also produces and performs his own music which is clearly influenced by his background as a drummer for various punk bands.
His introduction to electronic music-making sprung from necessity when the lack of a complete drum set and proper practice space as a student in Vancouver prompted him to pick up his first drum machine. Since moving to Berlin in 2008, the fling has developed into a full fledged love affair with synthesizers.
Easton’s musical practice is heavily based around improvisation and jam-sessions in collaboration with Berlin colleges such as Lando Kal, Sam Barker, Peter Kirn, Privacy and Owen Roberts. With the latter he performs live and improvised under the name Manapotamus.
