Nosedrip for The Word Magazine’s 5 year birthday

After sterling, tailor-made selections by Run Tell Secrecy and Onda Sonora, we’re now bringing you a birthday mix made by homegrown talent Nosedrip, recorded extra-specially for The Word Magazine’s 5th anniversary. Nosedrip’s exclusive mix is inspired by The Word’s White Album, and all tracks allude to the word white, including his own personal fave ‘White Nile’ by Kelan Phil Cohran And Legacy. Very clever. Catch the Ostender on the decks at our big birthday bash this Friday in Brussels’ Komplot, and in the meantime, check out this bizarro interview with the man himself… 

Can you describe your DJ act in a few words? 

Radioshow since 2010. DJ since being broke. Everything sounds hopeful.

How did you first start making music? 

I don’t make music.

Okay… is music a full-time thing for you at the moment?

Full-time waste.

Can you describe the mix in a few words? Tell us what makes it special…

It’s very special because every song has the word ‘white’ in it… It’s perfect if you have a full-time job in an office and you want to have children in the next 5 years.

When and where did you record it? 

I made it 5 years ago when the season changed from winter to spring. In Ghent. My room was full of Fritz Hansen furniture. The cleaning lady was hoovering the room next door.

What about the artwork you submitted with the mix? 

It’s a detail of a pornographic scene with a white girl wearing white stockings… She used to be 5 years old…

Hmm… what’s your favourite track on it?

Kelan Phil Cohran And Legacy – White Nile.

What are your top 3 albums of the year so far?

Grouper – The Man Who Died In His Boat

Broadcast – Berberian Sound Studio

Others don’t come close…

What do you have coming up in the next few weeks?

Release of the most irrelevant thing ever… Playing Stuk’s ‘Artefact’ festival with Andy Stott & Vladislav Delay…
