It's Friday, the weekend is fast approaching, you're probably looking for something that'll get you in the mood for an unforgettable night out. Anticipating this exact scenario, we asked Berlin-based Greek musician and performance artist Abyss X to provide us with a mix guaranteed to pull listeners into an experimental sonic adventure.

True to her form of breaking rules and messing up structures, expect a superposition of experimental techno beats and R&B vocals, reminiscent of collage-like video game music. The fact that Evangelia Lachianina aka Abyss X is reluctant to stick with one genre is mirrored in her diverse background across dance, theatre and film. Here's what she warned us to expect from her gritty debut i-D mix:

"I rarely do mixes, so when I do, they tend to be very collage like; a tsunami of different ideas and feelings invade my stream of thoughts and my sonic timeline. In this mix, I feature quotes from early Lydia Lunch interviews, alongside some from Terence McKenna and Martha Graham -- all very enlightened people in their own ways. The mix sounds very cyclothymic in nature, with occasional nervous breakdowns. I treat a mix as a piece of information, with it's own story to tell and its own messages to convey. It's up to the listener to figure it out!”
