Selections: Blinky

Welcome back to Selections, a series of exclusive artist-curated Spotify playlists from those in the know.

We’re excited to welcome the much-hyped Milanese upstarts Blinky to our Selections series. The band released their debut, Syncro EP, on 31 October, merging a love for dub and UK breakbeat-driven sounds to form a collection of dusty, warm dub-techno cuts.

Their playlist takes its cues from UK techno and bass for the most part, particularly those whose dub influence is never far from the surface (see Parris, Ossia or Mosca). A punky abrasion is also a consistent thread and throughout we get a picture of the touchstones of the nascent group’s ear. As it is, we can’t wait to see where they lead.

Blinky play the Crack Magazine stage at Club to Club Festival, Turin, on 2 November
