New York producer delivers a blinding instalment...

The third mix in our SIGNAL series comes from NYC-based producer Copout, following the release of his excellent new EP on Liminal Sounds, 'Bardo'.

A producer keep to explore the club in new ways, his sound, (as illustrated by the relationship between dark & light on 'Bardo'), melds together solid, thick-edged drum programming and industrial clatter with shiny, delicate melody patterns - and it's superb.

Taking in tracks from contemporaries DJ Milktray, Celestial Trax, Bushido and more, his SIGNAL mix is pretty good too. Strap in and enjoy!

1. Who are you?
I'm a producer and artist currently living in NYC.

2. What sort of music do you make?
It's dark,hopeful, and often driven by lush melodies that are pinned against contrasting angular percussion. The hope is to create new sonic worlds and stories for imagined landscapes.

3. Describe your mix in 3 words.
Lush, Metallic, Repetitive.
