Darker Than Wax: Dean Chew with Mehdi El-Aquil

Dean Chew AKA Funk Bast*rd heads up the Darker Than Wax collective and imprint on the island of Singapore, home to a flourishing DIY musical culture, showcasing diverse underground electronic sounds from Southeast Asia and beyond. His left-field approaches to genre-crossing and imaginative mixing add an extra something-something to his already eclectic selections.

For this month’s mix, Dean is joined by Mehdi, the head honcho of Condesa Electronics (the custom-built rotary mixers in demand around the world). He is informed by decades of collecting records and understanding how to play music to its optimum form.
