This week’s Besti-mix come courtesy of Coley who produces under the name of Luv*Jam, the name of the parties that a small north Welsh tribe developed to pursue their musical tastes in Wrexham. Some of you might have had the pleasure of experiencing their no-holds-barred party for yourself at this year’s Bestival or at any of the unusual party locations they’ve made their own over the past 12 months; this lot have had it away everywhere from concrete bunkers to the terrace at Space.
Now, comes their own music and art project, Crow Castle Cuts - named after a local medieval fort in Llangollen, whose third release is out on November 11 (lovingly packaged on vinyl only and including ancient text about sacred fairies!), the same date as their next Luv*Jam party.
Right now though, tuck into their Besti-mix, a 23-track vinyl-only recording starring Aphex Twin, Jason Fine and F.U.S.E. (aka Richie Hawtin)…
