Him_Her_Self, two ultra-talented electronic music producers, who waver between the duality of house and electro, dark and light, bumpy and swift, vocal and bassdriven, come up with this seem-, flaw- and effortless 70th instalment of the MEOKO mix series. Hailing from the Midlands, the male-female outfit honed its skills in countless sweaty back rooms without losing momentum when struggling against unimaginative club structures in their native Leicester. After ten years of cutting their benchmark individually, Leon Baggotts and Claire Spooner finally got together as a production duo, which has led to an exponential output on labels as varied as Crosstown Rebels, Circle Music, Elite Records, Eskimo, Dialtone Records, Planet Acetate Records, to name but a few. Their mix, a stream of musical collective consciousness, is a prime example of their remarkable craftsmanship: it chugs through bass-driven output nodding left and right, and paying tribute to electro-clad club heritage and techno culture. Lovely!
