Three new Photek tracks + Darkstar Live on BBC1

Benji B seems to be filling the void left by Mary Ann Hobbes quite well. This week the late nigh experimental show featured a live session by Hyperdub’s Darkstar and three new tracks by none other than Photek. The new Photek tracks titled ‘This City’, ‘Avalanche’ and ’101′ are teasers from an album that is scheduled for sometime next year and sound completely new. Photek seems to be dipping into house, dubstep and anthemic sounds and breaking further from his origins with more samples and mass appeal across the three tracks. Also of note on this show is an amazing remix of Gil Scott Heron’s ‘NY is Killin Me’ by Jamie Smith of the XX. You can hear Benji B’s show as a streaming link for the next seven days.
