133 / V/A: Fwonk* Classics

Taking inspiration from hundreds of years of classical music, a select cadre of Fwonk* alumni offer their interpretations and versions of the genre. Tackling Bach, Beethoven, Debussy, Ravel and Stravinsky – as well as lesser-known composers like Thomas Tallis, Pietro Masagni and Josquin de Prez – are Fwonk* artists echosonic, katarrhaktes, Eivind Fivelsdal, Heskin Radiophonic, Per Byhring, Fudgedubnofunk and Dr Nemmo.

114 / V/A: Let Steeple Bells Be Swungen

Ho ho ho and a keg of mulled wine! Fwonk* rounds off 2013 with a candy-soaked compilation LP of icy beats and frosty ambience. Best enjoyed with a crate of dodgy liqueur and several dozen mince pies.

Concept, curation, and artwork by Katarrhaktes.

111 / V/A: The Legendary Swimsuit Issue

When at the beach on a glorious Summer’s day, the lovely lads and ladies at the fantastic Fwonk* studios promise they will never wear those sweaty speedos you most earnestly wish you hadn’t bought them for Christmas in jest. Nor will they torture you with terror-inducing spray-on tan lines or sandy crotch-paunches. Nope. Not now. Not ever. Our hands may be behind our backs, but that doesn’t mean our fingers are crossed.

Compiled, mastered and designed by Katarrhaktes.
