Extending over 1 hour and bordering the realms of cheesiness at some points, here’s a sonic kingdom full of ecstatic, sunlit soundscapes.
Following his brilliant new album Migration and an in-depth interview with Mixmag Bonobo drops a warm and playful DJ mix that reflects his highly eclectic approach.
Uone did it again and proved himself to be what his fellow country men refer to as a mad cunt behind the decks. His DJ set at Rainbow Serpent’s Sunset Stage is a bold mix of trippy House tunes, and of course it comes with the signature bawl-along factor of the Australian DJ. Quite some…
A musical journey from Dope Beats to mellow dancability and back: Dolph delivers the goods and proves himself once again to be a highly eclectic DJ.
Raw, excessive, delirious, big-room, low-lights, four-to-the-floor Techno: Kernel Existence is the new Alter Ego of Dub Techno mastermind Toby Dreher. Solid party music.
Robot Koch played a live set for Boiler Room together with vocalist Delhia De France. It took place in front of video projection that provided the pefect visual match for the warm, organic sound of this performance.
Cassegrain present 70 minutes of raw, delirious Techno.
To initiate this musical journey Nicola Cruz, one of the protagonists of the thriving Ecuadoran dance music scene, drops some Acid. He then takes us on a trip through the tropical pastures of House, Disco and Funk. A mix very different from his magnificient Prender El Alma album on ZZK Records, obviously paying tribute to his…
Merging the trashy freestyle attitude of a DJ Koze with the clubby hypnotism of a D-Nox, the sets of Uone are truly next level shit – and that’s precisely what the Aussie delivered at Boom’s Alchemy Circle this year.
Rampue fires at only around 110 beats per minute, but what he creates is perfidiously energetic and driving – it really feels much faster once you get into the groove. Slow-motion House rhythms provide the bass-heavy backbone for etheral chants and ethnic instrumentations from all around the world.
“Cerebral, hallucinogenic, abrasive, and woven together with a decidedly punk ethos.” Now that sounds like my thing. A beautiful reminder of the original idea of Techno.
The fluffy chord sounds at the very beginning are somewhat reminescent of Peter Gun’s sunshine sound from around 2004. Then there’s passionate and rejoicing vocals. And at the very end, Dr. Hofmann drives by on his bicycle. During his set at Fusion Festival’s Tanzwüste, Stephan Zovsky delivered a really fresh, energetic and multi-facetted take on…
Reverberating in the delirious space between Techno and Trance, this hypnotic DJ mix sends the mind wandering.
Glitch Hop? Nu-Funk? Bass Music? It’s impossible to put a single label on the style of Opiuo. However, one thing is certain: The sound of the Aussie is perfidiously rocking. During the last year he gained quite a reputation for the ridiculous spectacle of his live show which is more the gig of a band…
Djrum works his way through an intoxicating cocktail of genres and rhythm structures. Nineties rave vibes and happy sunshine melodies collide with heady Techno and Bass Music. Although performed with surgical precision, Djrum’s mixing still has the somewhat raw energy that is missing in the overly sleek transitions of many USB DJs.
Strictly quality stuff: Addision Groove delivers 36 minutes of uplifiting Footwork, Bass and Jungle goodness.
Just before dropping their third album, Moderat present a new DJ mix. Broken beat textures are the backbone for deep, cinematic soundscapes.
Deep, hypnotic Techno at its best: “DJing is so much more than just swapping records. It is – and should be – a reflection of the person that’s mixing. Right now I like to do mixes as shapes or waves. Sort of like small sculptures of sound. This is also how it turned out this…
What Uone delivered at this year’s Rainbow Serpent Festival is so deep, trippy and melodic that it almost qualifies as some kind of Trance music. However, it’s something different, something very streamlined and clubby. The Australian artist describes his outstanding DJ set as ‘the debut of my new Serpent Charmer show’ – definitely something to…
Grooving somewhere between an afterhour dancefoor and the Chillout, Prado delivers a DJ mix that is wonderfully deep and trippy.
