It all begins with a delayed flight.
Stuck in the Norwegian city of Bergen for a few hour, Guy Andrews decides to scale the hills that loom far above.
Able to look down on such a striking, alien, and enormously beautiful environment, the producer was left with the impression that his art needed to change.
New album 'Tåke - Norwegian for 'mist' or 'fog' - is the result of this fresh creative impulse, and it's a fascinating return from an ever-inquisitive electronic talent.
Out on September 22nd via Houndstooth, the album is set to be followed by a flurry of live shows across the country.
Ahead of this, though, Guy Andrews have pieced together a new Clash DJ Mix, an exploratory trip that veers out to techno's left field.
Opening with cuts from Ben Frost, Emptyset, and Sei A, the producer's post-rock impulses come to the fore when he drops Mogwai's 'Remurdered' right in the middle.
Ending with Markus Suckut's mighty 'Shoreditch', this is definitely one to lose yourself in.
