While the Psytrance scene seems to be stuck in an endless loop of the same artists playing the same sound for many years already, other electronic music genres are getting deeper, more ethereal and even psychedelic in very fresh and innovative ways. What happens at the Ranch-o-Relaxo gatherings in Australia is a perfect example for…
Max Cooper facilitates an ethereal, highly musical journey through a wide range of contemporary electronic genres.
Extending over 1 hour and bordering the realms of cheesiness at some points, here’s a sonic kingdom full of ecstatic, sunlit soundscapes.
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.
Complementing the release of their mutual album Particle Fields, Robot Koch and Savannah Jo Lack take us on a nearly hour-long time travel through the soothing realms of Classic, Neo Classic and mellow electronic 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.
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.
Absolutely stunning live session by Floating Points and his 10-person ensemble.
Just before dropping their third album, Moderat present a new DJ mix. Broken beat textures are the backbone for deep, cinematic soundscapes.
Nicolas Jaar delivers a new DJ mix for Resident Advisor and, no surprise here, it’s a class of its own. Excellent track selection from a multitude of genres, skilfully blended into one smooth listening experience. Download Link
Lulacruza present their first mixtape. More than one hour of Nu LatAm goodness, including many tracks from the Argentinian / Colombian duo itself.
Speaking loosely, Hodge’s music fits into that middle-ground between Dubstep’s weight and Techno’s fluidity that Bristol producers have a knack for doing so well. That’s what FACT mag says about its latest mix, and that’s a very accurate description of what you get to hear. Raw, bass-heavy and wonderfully tripped-out, yet with an uplifting twist.…
The Danish sampling maniacs known as Den Sorte Skole dropped their new album today. Reflecting the unique production approach of the duo, Indians & Cowboys is a skilful collage of rhythms and sounds from a multitude of countries, music genres and eras. Some tracks are surprisingly heavy on the beats, others float along with barely…
Pinch’s new DJ mix for XLR8R is nothing for the faint-hearted. The head honcho of Tectonic and Cold Recordings delivers a fairly abstract collage of rhythm and sound that has a raw, delirious, industrial vibe to it, and that seems to be made for a big sound system. U.K. Bass driven sound at it’s best!
A deep and melodic amalgamation of genres like Downbeat, Dub Techno, Break Beats and Electronica, creating a 72-minute musical journey.
To put it plain and simple, this is an absolutely stunning mix. Deep, melodic, full of changes in rhythm and texture, and last but not least extremely danceable: Alex Banks ticks all the boxes of what I consider to be good dance music, as a producer and as a DJ.
Dolph is one of the great artists I discovered through my work with Acker Records / 3000°. This amazing freestyle mix is a true Schatzkiste, a treasure chest, full of musical gems. The Berlin based artist starts with almost half an hour of pure dopeness before he drops the first 4/4 kickdrum. The musical journey…
Inspired by the cycle of the moon INI Movement has just launched a new series. The idea is to celebrate each full moon with an exclusive DJ mix – and they kick off with a really amazing one. For the first instalment, we asked a friend of the movement, the serial ethnomusicologist, El Búho, to…
Fábel delivers his second SlowCooker Session and again it ticks all the boxes for a really good DJ mix. Compared to the first part this one is somewhat heavier on the beats, the vibe feels more stimulating, towards the end the groove could clearly be described as danceable. However, just like SlowCooker Session Vol.1 it…
Multi-insturmentalist Fábel delivers a wonderfully smooth blend of deep and dope tunes, including quite some tracks and edits by the Spanish producer himself. Shifting between Trip Hop, Downbeat, Electronica and Instrumental Hip Hop, there’s an extremely mellow and jazzy vibe to this mix.
