Pandora's Jukebox is a perfect name for a DJ who always serves up sonic surprises.
By day, Yasmina Dexter works as an art director, but in the evening she deconstructs electronic music before reassembling it in hypnotic fashion. Her dead-of-night soundtracks are both trippy and hypnotic whether she is hosting her NTS show or playing as a resident at Cicciolina Paris. Her abstract, slowed-down take on techno joins inconceivable dots between a broad array of sounds and scenes and sounds that leave you enjoyably discombobulated.
This week's mix is another irresistible musical mood board from Pandora's Jukebox. Slow in tempo but dynamic with its detail, it unfolds like a half-remembered dream: fragments of melody and a snatched vocal snippet come and go, a well-swung rhythm becomes a bumping beat and shards of percussion fade away into a gorgeous ambient pad, all without fanfare. Put this one on and prepare to get truly lost in sound.
