Stream a new SHAPE mix by Brussels-based experimental techno duo Orphan Swords. The mix has been produced as part of SHAPE platform’s ongoing collaboration with London’s NTS radio.
ORPHAN SWORDS is a Brussels-based duo that “crafts some of the most menacing modern electronics in the game”, according to Electronic Beats. Their critically-acclaimed music, described as “a brutal hypnosis” by Ransom Note, has been released on Idiosyncratics, Desire Records and Clan Destine.
The duo have collaborated with Ike Yard’s Stuart Argabright on several occasions, and have been remixed by Helm, Paul Purgas (Emptyset), Svengalisghost, Prostitutes, Dwellings (GNOD)… They’ve performed alongside Vatican Shadow, The Body, Black Rain, Extreme Precautions, Kyoka and more.
