Podcast 169: Hyetal

Bristol producer Hyetal is a relative newcomer on the XLR8R radar screen, but he's spent much of the past year quietly releasing a high-quality arsenal of tunes and establishing himself as an artist to keep tabs on. Working both solo and in collaboration with heavy hitters such as Shortstuff and fellow Bristolian Peverelist—we recently previewed their new single of Punch Drunk—Hyetal adeptly combines dubstep-influenced percussion and low-end with blippy synths and a melodic sensibility that appears to draw its greatest influence from classic videogames. But Hyetal isn't just another UK bedroom beat jockey; as this mix demonstrates, his tastes are quite diverse. Listen in as he pairs his own productions with futuristic house gems and also finds the time to breeze through hip-hop re-fixes, witch house, and classic 4AD serenity.

That first tune is absolute quality. Great track selection overall.

Also, for those having trouble downloading the mixes sometimes all you have to do is click on the link twice...atleast that's what works for me.

This mix is awesome. Mixing hard and soft passages with melody and hypnotic moments. I love it.
