Juno Plus Podcast 07: Charlton
The producer – newly transposed from Rotterdam to London – came onto our radar with a superb 12″ on Italian imprint M_Rec last year, and has previously been remixed by Sandwell District don Regis. Charlton told Juno Plus this mix showcases the impact life in the UK has had on his musical sensibilities.
“People generally know me from the harder edged techno I use to make, but when I moved to London from Rotterdam I started to think differently about music and what I want to achieve from it,” he said.
“I have been working alongside Nick Dunton of Surface Records for the past year or so and this has culminated in me becoming a part of the Surface family.”
Charlton has been working with Nick on a (until now) hush-hush house project on newly formed Surface sub-label Inchoate Music, “which in general leans towards the tougher but more melodic shades of house and techno”. Their first release – due out soon – comes replete with a Delta Funktionen remix.
With that to look forward to, let us now enjoy his entry into the Juno Plus mix pantheon – and we can’t recommend it highly enough. Deep, raw machine funk at its finest.
