The fifth annual NX Records mixtape is now available to download, and features a variety of music from Goldsmiths, University of London students past and present.
The eclectic collection of 33 songs covers a wide spectrum of genres, ranging from alt-folk to ambient soul to epic electronica.
It has been arranged by composer, producer and Goldsmiths alumnus La Leif.
One half of electro duo ORKA, she also performs with the Nomadic Female DJ Troupe, and co-runs a collective for female and non-binary music producers called Omnii.
Among the mixtape’s artists is cellist, composer and sound recordist Francesca Ter-Burg, who recently completed an MMus in Popular Music at Goldsmiths.
Widely regarded as one of the leading Klezmer cellists of her generation, she has worked with renowned composers Tcha Limberger and Dr Alan Bern, and has collaborated with the BBC Symphony Orchestra.
Other artists include Fille, a third-year BMus Popular Music student who merges her classical background with electro and pop music, first-year BMus Popular Music student Remi, who writes soul and gospel inspired pop songs, and indie band Ordinary Noise who have recently received airplay on BBC Radio 2 and BBC Radio 6 Music.
NX Records, a collaboration between Matthew Herbert’s Accidental Records and Goldsmiths, was launched in 2013 and has released mixtapes, compilations and albums by Goldsmiths students and alumni ever since.
The label also hosts an annual pop up record shop, educational programs and events across London.
