The Golden Filter, originally from NYC, are a London based Art-Disco duo consisting of Penelope Trappes and Stephen Hindman.

The duo released the Italo Disco inspired track “Solid Gold” in 2008, and have since steadily released singles, EPs and albums on labels like Vinyl Factory, Brille, Kitsune, and are currently releasing on Optimo Music with darker techno tracks and minimal wave, and odd analog pop music. Since relocating to London, The Golden Filter have been making music, writing film soundtracks, playing live and DJing throughout clubs and festivals all over Europe and beyond.

Here, ahead of the 23 November “Talk Talk Talk” remix package off their own 4GN3S imprint, The Golden Filter provides a far-ranging mix, which they describe as: “We have a love for unclean, analog music, and basically wanted to make a mix that feels dirty, angular, and hard with a bit of IDM vibes at times.”
