The Go! Team
Brighton based sonic alchemists the Go! Team take control of the 6 Mix. A 6 Music favourite, the band - masterminded by producer and DJ Ian Parton - have carved out a distinct sonic identity, mixing up samples from children's TV themes, long-lost library music and obscure garage rock tunes to create an intoxicating musical brew. Their latest album, 'Rolling Blackouts', includes guest appearances from Best Coast's Beth Cosentino and Deerhoof's Satomi Matsuzaki as well as vocals from UK rapper Ninja.
Returning to the 6 Mix for the first time in five years, Ian plays a selection of music which has influenced the band's sound including tunes from My Bloody Valentine, The Crystals and Enrico Morricone, and discusses his love of 1960s girl groups. He also plays a selection his favourite instrumental music, including tracks by Tortoise and Brian Eno, and talks about how non-vocal music has informed his musical make up.
