Various Artists - Stick In The Wheel Presents: Perspectives On Tradition

Subscription Save


Stick In The Wheel latest collaborative release invites contemporary musicians to explore what the idea of traditional music and culture means to them through the archive at Cecil Sharp House.

DMC scratch champion Jon1st looks at samples and fragments of music and folklore from his home city of Leicester; DJ, musician and broadcaster Nabihah Iqbal discovers the Dorset folk songs contemporary to Thomas Hardy's Tess of the D'Urbervilles, and Metronomy's Olugbenga focuses on Nigerian folktales and Kenyan field recordings.

The result is a surprising collection of forward-thinking music looking at the notion of fragments, archives, and the function of traditional music in 2022. Whether that's the traditions of scratching and sampling, how we can relate to others across borders and cultures, or attempting to make sense of the prism of an archive, this release is essential listening at the cutting edge of experimentation through the blurring of forms.

Drift Recommends

Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.

Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.

You can subscribe to it via our Spotify public profile.
