NTS have carved out a section of the internet dedicated to underground and left field music in all its forms. If you’re not familiar, have a look at the huge amount of genres they cover in their explore section to get a sense of what they do.
While they don’t specialise in the four four techno that we’re known to love, they host some of the best, giving an online space for artists to get creative. Some of our favourite NTS shows are Ben Sims Presents ‘Run it Red’, Shanti Celeste’s monthly residency and Mumdance’s shows where he plays everything from punk to techno.
At the beginning of May, NTS teamed up with Jameson Whiskey, to bring the world a 24-hour radio festival, titled ‘Remote Utopias‘. For this special occasion the likes of Four Tet, Omar S, Palms Trax and Bicep were all broadcast through the airwaves. If you missed the 24 hour broadcast, you can listen to Bicep’s extra amazing ambient mix, which is now uploaded to the NTS Mixcloud site.
If you want to ease yourself into the week, this ambient mix from our favourites is just incredible. We hope you enjoy this as much as we have.
“Bicep drift from the dance-floor for a special hour of neon-soaked synth journeys and hazy atmospherics, inspired by neo noir classic Blade Runner”.
