MIX OF THE MOMENT: HUERCO S. - Juno Plus Podcast 141

As summer begins to feel like a distant memory and the days slowly begin to get shorter, it's the perfect time to reflect on what has been an incredible few months of music. One person who has refused to stay out of 2016's spotlight is New York's Brian Leeds, or better known to some as the Proibito affiliate Huerco S. After delivering one of this year's finest LPs, which remarkably featured in Pitchfork's collection of the best ambient albums, Leeds now puts out a fantastic mix for Juno Plus, adding to their ever-growing list of podcast contributors. Aptly sub-titled 'Cool Cool Summer Mix', Leeds pulls through with numerous obscure pieces, spanning trippy ambient through to electro and deep techno. He uses the hour to focus on playing the tracks out in full, as they were originally designed, and does so incredibly effectively and with the very same charm that surrounds all his work.
