When ACL first started producing mixes, I knew that I didn’t just want to invite artists and labels. We’ve always imagined ACL as a part of a broader community. As such I’ve often invited mixes from amateurs, from listeners and fellow critics. This mix is one of those.
Philippe Requena is a music lover who lives near Paris, and has been producing mixes casually for some time now, just putting them out once he’s gathered enough tracks and samples. We featured his Venant le jour mix not too long ago, and will surely share more of his mixes in the future.
I’m particularly enchanted by the way Requena moves between genres, often weaving elements of pop and rock into the mixes in ways not often seen on these pages, but that nonetheless draw lines of connection with the artists and genres you might be more inclined to expect from us.
