Oof! A scorching mix of sounds from the excellent Liars, in advance of their appearance at Field Day

As we've previously reported, the line-up for this year's Field Day festival is looking pretty fruity - as well as our own stage, which includes the likes of Grimes, Mazzy Star, Tortoise and Papa M, across the rest of the festival are the likes of Laurel Halo, Julia Holter, Kassem Mosse and R Stevie Moore. Oh, and the small matter of Liars, Quietus office favourites and winners of our best album of 2010 award for Sisterworld, who are soon to return with excellent new album WIXIW. Oh, how we begged to have them appear on our stage. Sadly, it was not to be, but if you're anywhere within Victoria Park's boundaries on June 2nd, they ought to be top of your list.

Plus, they've very kindly gone ahead and given us a blistering mix in advance of their appearance at the festival, which features all kinds of electronic delights. Some of the mix was previewed on Field Day Radio last week - click here to listen - but now we're pleased to be able to offer the full version for your listening pleasure, kicking off with the whirling Berlin dub-techno of Basic Channel, moving through the likes of Wire, DAF, Clock DVA and Adrian Sherwood's remix of Einstürzende Neubauten. Stream via the embed above.

The mix's tracklist runs as follows:

Basic Channel - 'Enforcement'
Wire - 'Ahead'
S.P.K. - 'Contact'
