Like Part 1 of the mixtape (Tru-thoughts – Archipelago-remixes-mixtape-1), it focuses on remixes both of and by Hidden Orchestra, and nearly all the tracks have been further remixed or mashed up by Joe.

Like all of Joe’s mixtapes, there is a broad and multi-layered range of music and sound from around the world, from contemporary releases stretching back to the 1940’s and something from every decade in-between – including imagined collaborations such as Burial with vocals from Argentinian folk legend Mercedes Sosa, or Linton Kwesi Johnson reciting poetry over Tipper’s immaculately-produced beats.

There is also a wealth of sound design and spoken word, taken from interviews with composers, radio programmes (many recorded by Joe), and poetry recitals.

Other artists making appearances in this fast-paced mix include Four Tet, King Tubby, Frank Sinatra, Junip, Kidkanevil and Daisuke Tanabe, Squarepusher, The Four Tops, DJ Shadow, Floex, Finley Quaye, Clarinet Factory, Origamibiro and many more…
