Tom Ravenscroft presents his own unique blend of music every week at BBC Radio 6 with genuine passion and knowledge, unlike anything anywhere else in radio. This Friday’s guest mix was from an experimental Dutch electronic artist: our very own Olaf Stuut.
Our beloved Gidge produced the soundtrack of “Lulin”, a film made in collaboration with Nordic friends Lampray. Lulin is now nominated for The Best Nordic Short Film Award. The prize-winning film will qualify for consideration in the Short Film Category of the Annual Academy Awards (wow).
Plot: A man sees something he cannot explain at the edge of the woods surrounding his cabin. Is he crazy if he accepts that he saw something supernatural or is he crazy if he denies it? A slow-paced thriller dealing with the basic human fear of experiencing the inexplicable.

Polynation created a one hour mix for KROOKS with all the music and genres that inspired them:
“The tracks all have electronic characteristics with an organic feel. And although the first couple of tracks have a lot of energy because of the drumbeats, they’re also sort of meditative: a warm sound with a crossover between acoustic and electronic. Because of the organic sounds, you sometimes don’t even hear whether it’s a synth or an actual instrument. The last three tracks are drenched in melancholic beauty and vulnerability, something we’re looking for in our own productions as well: rhythmic percussion combined with melancholy.”
