FACT mix 142: Gavin Russom

FACT mix 142: Gavin Russom - After making his name – and helping build DFA’s estimable reputation – with the uniformly excellent Delia & Gavin and Black Leotard Front records, the artist and producer spent a few years in Berlin, honing his skills, expanding his mind and breaking cover to deliver the storming Black Meteoric Star 12″s and album. Representing Russom’s intuitive, open-ended take on acid house and techno, the Black Meteoric Star project has since been retired, but its focussing of dancefloor energy undoubtedly informs his latest venture, The Crystal Ark. Inspired first and foremost by the wealth of South American music that Russom absorbed on his travels there, not to mention his enduring love of tear-out Belgian rave from the early 90s, The Crystal Ark has already released one excellent single on DFA (‘The City Never Sleeps’), with more to follow along with a live show of some shape or form.
