The Warsaw-based cellist puts together an exclusive mix featuring music from "friends and collaborators" amongst others

With FatCat Records sub-label 130701 having recently released a mixtape of remixes for tracks from Warsaw-based cellist Resina's 2018 album Traces, she has now put together an exclusive mixtape for us here at tQ.

The mix veers between darker, industrial pieces from acts like Mount Eerie and Alessandro Cortini, while also touching on classical compositions and soundtrack works by Oneohtrix Point Never, Ben Frost and Hildur Gudnadottir. You can find a full tracklist for the mixtape below and listen to it above.

Speaking about the mix, she says: "While preparing it I was just guided by general mood and pitch of the pieces - sometimes I like to play this game with the key of compositions. Although now I realized there is probably something about tension between old and new, acoustic and electronic what I wanted to catch.

"There are also a few pieces written by my friends and collaborators and also some based on voice - which is something more and more interesting for me."

Resina's Traces - Remixes EP - featuring remixes by Ben Frost, Ian William Craig, Lotic and Abul Mogard - is out now and can be purchased here.
