“MixTate is a series in which up-and-coming musical figures create sound mixes inspired by Tate works.”
“For the tenth mix in our series, London-based producer Lixo takes inspiration from William Hogarth’s Gin Lane 1751”
“I found Gin Lane very striking as a teenager, It’s incredibly sinister and yet somehow comic in its depiction of London’s booze epidemic during the 18th century. An image which seems all too relevant today. There is a tension in the detail of the piece and a somewhat surreal tone which I try and convey in my own drawings and in turn the music I make. I would say my sound is routed in London and Hogarth’s piece evokes the immense history the capital holds and I feel it’s all somehow connected, a progression from syphilitic woman drunk on ‘Mother’s Ruin’ to contemporary binge drinking, promiscuity and the imminent collapse of society as we know it.”
