Kit Grill is a London-based producer and a host at NTS Radio, dabbling in various genres, ranging from Krautrock to New Wave to Post-Punk and Ambient. On November 6th, Grill is releasing his new album, titled Ride, on his own Primary Colours imprint, exploring new timbres, textures, and field recordings using the Fairlight CMI digital synthesizer from the early 80s. To celebrate the release, Kit has put together a Headphone Commute Mix featuring an eclectic selection of his favorite tunes, including a few from the album. It’s a unique excursion into the sound from around the world, with appearances of some early electronic music from the likes of Steve ReichCocteau Twins & Harold Budd among the contemporaries, such as Mica LeviGAS, and Windy & Carl. Grill’s new album will be streaming on November 12th from Ten Studios in East London, meanwhile, sit back, and enjoy the show…

This is a collection of ambient, contemporary classical music I listen to quite regularly. I enjoy composers taking traditional methods and turning things upside down or skewering the normal sound or structure you’d expect to hear. It’s something I aim for personally when producing.
