Exclusive: Listen to Karen Gwyer’s Headphone Highlights


The Opal Tapes and No Pain In Pop musician speaks to Red Bull Music Academy Radio on Iggy Pop, Autechre, Moroder and more – tune in here.

If you’ve kept a keen ear to the ground for Karen Gwyer’s most recent output for Opal Tapes and NPIP, you’ll know that the London-based musician is increasingly becoming a specialist in long form techno productions that sound all the more impressive when improvised in a live setting. However, her inspirations and influences run far and deep beyond electronic music, something demonstrated on the excellent podcast Gwyer did for us just over a year ago, which covered everything from Prince Buster and Sheila E to Madteo and Motion Sickness of Time Travel. The chance to hear Gwyer discuss some of her personal favourites is yours to embrace thanks to Red Bull Music Academy Radio and their ongoing Headphone Highlights series, with a typically broad spectrum of artists covered over the hour-long discussion.
