As big fans of Max, Rough Trade invited him to curate a mix that demonstrated his influences, knowing he’d dig up some unexpected gems. The result gives a fascinating and enriching guided tour through Richter’s musical cosmos, with insight into the sounds that help inspire his singular talent and vision.
