We’re kicking off 2017’s Frission Guest Mix Series in fine bloody style with two wonderful sessions courtesy of the Bay Area’s Haju Tapes.

Since christening the label in November 2015 with oddigtl’s brilliant Solarium album, the imprint has gone from strength to strength, releasing some beautiful, super limited cassette albums from a host of innovative artists at the top of their games like kuromoji and Mark Aubert.

To find out more about the label’s past present and future we’ve tapped up label boss Ridgewell for an interview and asked him to lace us with some mixes showcasing the label’s roster and vibes.
