On July 14th Rough Trade Shops present a spectacular compilation programmed by the loved and lauded composer Max Richter.

This will be the first in Rough Trade Shops’ new Behind the Counter series, in which some of their favourite artists create mixes especially for them, using the records they sell on the shop floor.

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.

This 36-track compilation features music from Mogwai, Boards of Canada, Let’s Eat Grandma, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, Philip Glass, Aphex Twin and Low, plus classical works by Rachmaninoff and Bach.

 “This is a compilation of music I love. Some of my choices are things I’ve been listening to for decades, others are new discoveries, but feel like they belong here. I put a couple of things of mine in too – welcome to my world”, says Max.
