SOMETHING FOR THE WEEKEND: Check out this slamming rave mixtape from indie rockers Butterfly Explosion…

“Open your mind…”

Irish group Butterfly Explosion are perhaps better known for their shoegaze-influenced blend of indie rock (“an infectious and hypnotic experience” as a 2010 review of their Lost Trails album put it), however this Spotify playlist shows that the band’s influences stretch beyond the likes of Ride and Mogwai…

Commencing with Usura’s Open Your Mind, and taking in Westbam, The Orb, Utah Saints, The Shamen and Gouryella as it weaves through around 25 years of classic dance, rave, and trance, this is the perfect accompaniment to your pre-club Friday shenanigans.

You’re welcome…
