Watch Heatsick Build a Track Live
- Words: Glenn Jackson
PAN affiliate and recent XLR8R podcast contributor Heatsick puts his own spin on FACT TV's Against the Clock challenge, crafting a beat live using only his Casio keyboard and a few guitar pedals for the ongoing video series. Captured before the producer's performance at the recent MUTEK festival in Montreal (our full review of which can be read here), the nine-minute clip finds Heatsick punching out a beat by hand before launching into a washy voyage into off-kilter electronics.
FACT TV's full clip can be watched below, ending with a brief rundown of the gear used to craft the live jam from the artist himself.
