Folktek were brought to our attention by producer Ivor Guest, who has started to buy some of their instruments. They are beautifully made, sound and look fantastic and are wonderfully erratic: a blend of analogue circuitry, junkyard sound generating devices, and high-end digital processing.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
