A deeply meditative, deeply ritualist journey full of hypnotic percussions, ethereal singing, dreamy melodies and the sounds of the jungle.
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…
Pianist and electronic music composer Nils Frahm keeps up his christmas mixtape tradition and shares with us an hour of cosy pops and crackles on mellow vintage records.
The grand master of so-sweet-and-melodic-it’s-almost-kitsch-but-it’s-not Bass Music presents a beautiful mix of deep Ambient and Downbeat tunes for Ransom Note. „I’ve done chilled and ambient mixes in the past which covered my influences over the years, whereas this mix features a lot more recent material of mine and stuff I’d get on promo that I…
Cassegrain present 70 minutes of raw, delirious Techno.
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.
Absolutely stunning live session by Floating Points and his 10-person ensemble.
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…
More Nu LatAm goodness, this time from one of the grand masters of the thriving South American genre: Chancha Via Circuito delivers a beautiful blend of old and new tunes.
A steady flow of laid-back 4-4 beats leads through the main part of this new mix by El Búho, lending it a feeling of mellow dancability. There’s a lot of Latin American sounds in here, but there’s also a fair bit of World Music from other parts of this planet.
The perfect soundtrack for any given day that feels like a Sunday: David Valera presents a soulful blend of Jazz, Funk, and other smooth grooves.
Seventy-seven minutes of bass-heavy awesomeness, delivered by Griff, my favourite artist from the thriving Australian Glitch Hop scene. The warm and organic sound that is so typical for the Melbourne based artist has a very human, almost hand-played vibe to it. Also I love how it is deeply psychedelic in the most progressive, most forward-thinking…
Guts news everyone: The French grandmaster of Dope Beats is back with the 8th edition of his Pura Mixtape series. Inspired by a recent trip to Colombia he delivers a delicious melange of Colombian classics from the 70s, Afro Beat, Cumbia, Funk, Haitian Kompa music, and a pinch of Disco. Altogether a truly outstanding vinyl-only…
