French producer, crate-digger, turntablist The Architect comes through with a guest playlist for Twistedsoul!
After a long hiatus, he recently released Une Plage Sur La Lune his first album in seven years.
The 15-track album sees him bringing in samples from across hip hop, jazz, electro, soul, funk and more. All of which can be heard above.
Deeply immersed in the turntablist scene from the 2000s, The Architect explains his love for DJ culture.
“It left its mark on me and continues to fascinate me. I like DJ culture in general, digging, sampling, beatmaking, scratching,” he says. “My biggest slap was discovering Cut Chemist; his versatility, his mixtures and his art of curiosity. Also artists like Dj Shadow, Nujabes, Dj Premier, ColdCut and Mr Scruff. Even today the Hip Hop scene is very rich and surprising, … it is a source of daily inspiration.”
For his guest playlist he’s carefully put together an incredible selection of tracks that reflects his inspirations and influences, with gems from Kid Koala, DJ Shadow, Flying Lotus, J Dilla, Nujabes, Onra, and more.
