Australia virtuoso Corin explores the crawl space between human and machine in this masterful mix, with appearances from Jikuroux and NON's Mya Gomez. Over email, Corin identifies the question at the centre of the mix as "How do we identify ourselves in a world where our connection to technology continues to become intimately normalised?" For those unfamiliar, the producer's 2016 EP Virtuality is essential homework — it's brilliant, world class stuff. Below, Corin selects the tracks that hit the spot in her every mood.
