This month’s edition of our So Fragile artist mixtape series is brought to you by Eric Sochocki, whose new project FIRES has just released its first single Morningtidegrey. Tellingly, the working title slapped on the .wav sent to us was “I Like a Lot of Genres”, a statement you can hear reflected in the mix’s wide-ranging collection of sounds from hip hop, synthwave and industrial. That catholic attitude to mixing a matching genres reflects FIRES’ own style, a heady blend of electronics, rock instrumentation and slick, modern production wizardry.
Stream the mix below, and check out FIRES’ debut album Red Goes Grey, out September 8th on Metropolis Records.
