Listen to Ifan Dafydd’s Sonic Router mix


Excellent mix by Ifan Dafydd, the Welsh producer I introduced here a few weeks ago. It was made for The Quietus who also interviewed him. Regarding those James Blake soundalike rumours:

I lived with James during our last year of university”, Dafydd tells me, cooperating with my request to clear up the conjecture surrounding his identity at the first possible opportunity. “His music has undoubtedly had an influence on me. Living with him was living with his music and it grabbed me. I’m grateful for the fact that he introduced me to innovative electronic music that directed me onto the path that I’ve pursued since moving back to North Wales.”

This mix starts with a song from Chopin and can be characterised by upbeat percussive beats and bass.
