Askemwhy – Palimpsest

soundcloud / mixcloud / facebook

Askemwhy is a Geneva based DJ. In his very begining he was spinning dubstep whether on local venues or festivals situated in the French part of Switzerland. Techno-influenced bass music, grime and DnB are becoming also a part of his repertoire as he developed his unique style. He describes his mix as a «stacking of musical layers from different cultures, times and places, overlapping and blending with each other at the same time and location, resulting in a semi-coherent and contrasted urban landscape inside of which the listener is enabled to travel in a ubiquitous way.» A selection of techno bits, cold futuristic grime, some grainy electronica and ketamine-fueled dubstep forms that musical pot-pourri.
