This is the superlative soundtrack to the end of your summer.
Afrikan Boy, Joe Goddard, Nico, Deniz Kurtel, Dinky, BALAM ACAB, Com Truise, Cloudboat and The Weeknd bring the noise, gettin’ low, loud, lewd and rude. Get on it, get involved, just get it!
Putting out our longest compilation of tunes yet i-D online is here to help you ready yourself as the longer nights draw in. Shorter days mean more after-hours action and let’s face it, we can play all night! Fronting up the team we have a whole cross section of heavy talent. In the i-corner we give you a dutty bitta bass, grime, bluewave, trip-pop, electroclash and fidget. And in the D-corner we have acoustic, folktronica, ambient/alt packing punches with the force of a feather.
This is riot music for peaceful people. Crank the bass up, turn the treble full and evacuate the premises. If the mixtape was a man he’d be as mighty as Eminem, as slick as Scru Fizzer and as pretty as Plan B.
Etching up a storm, self-taught illustrator/artist Elli Eglisson (better known as AC BANANAS) is this month’s cover art illustrator. Born and raised in Reykjavik the Icelandic, full bearded babe-magnet specialises in custom lettering, character, t-shirt and logo design. Currently curating his next exhibition set to debut in London and Reykjavik in the next six months, things are bubbling hot for this visual innovator. If you pass a lad on the street who looks suspiciously similar to the man whose face appears on this mix-tape, you’ve found Elli. Flash him a wink for his work.
