Update: HELIO GLK is now released on 12-inch vinyl by Now-Again Records.
Gaslamp Killer is one of our favorite DJs and a big supporter of the Heliocentrics, recently saying that Heliocentrics producer and drummer Malcolm Catto “is the reason I got into all of this shit.” That inspiration comes through in this mix of GLK re-edits of some of the best tracks from their new album 13 Degrees of Reality, and the series of EPs that Now-Again will launch in 2014. He also mixes in some music from 60s ensembles that influenced the band. GLK writes:
“In 2008 Jeff Jank asked me to make a Heliocentrics podcast for stones throw to help promote the guys 1st album. It was one of my most fun & unique mixes. Here we are 5 years later in 2013 & again, I was asked to make a mix of some of the bands newest material from their superb album entitled “13 degrees of reality” that was just released & i was even granted access to some of the unreleased sessions that I had been hearing so much about for so many years from Egon. It is an honor that I present this, (my newest mix) HELIO GLK to the world. My chopped up / re edited madness from the band they call The Heliocentrics!”
