A long time ago I discovered one of the most beautiful mixes I have ever had the privilege of hearing .
It had a profound impact, and helped me on my journey of discovering alternative soundscapes.
Thank you Aeioux and Type Records….

Aeioux is the musical moniker of Stefan Lewandowski, a graphic designer by trade, and owner of the Birmingham-based agency 3form. Along with John Xela, he heads up the Type label and his individual style forms the backbone of the Type visual style.
Not pandering to commercial constraints, he strays into the forays of minimal electronic music, exploring the output of labels such as 12k, Mille Plateaux and of course Type, mixing this seamlessly into the more organic end of the electronic sound spectrum.
The result is an unexpected marriage between music made completely by computers, and music made using live instruments which creates a sound that challenges our minds and is simultaneously pleasing to the ears, something too often forgotten in this area of music.
