About the concept:
Here is the fifteenth instalment of our series “abc plays xyz”.
The idea behind it is to ask some DJs/mixing artists if they have an artist or label in mind that they love and would like to use for a mix.
So the approach of each mix is clear: the choosen DJ/mixing artist makes a selection of tracks produced by one artist (and her/his monikers) or released on a label (and its sublabels) and creates a nice mix from it.
Find links to all instalments at our overview. Today we present you Sev Dah’s mix of tracks from Mote-Evolver.
About Sev Dah:
Berlin, Detroit, Birmingham and, of course, Sarajevo.
Bosnian-built and -bred Sev Dah may be a Swedish expat, but the Balkan blackness clings strongly to the bleak percussions and rigidly uneasy synthetics that unwillingly fuse into his strongly individual take on techno. Authentically purveying the pulsations of the nakedly throbbing and ugly world, far away from Starbucks and H&M.
Signed to respected labels such as Random Island, Mote-Evolver, Komisch and Frozen Border sublabel Naked Index he quickly gnawed his way into the scene’s core of DJs and producers. Sev is even managing new projects on his own label Proletarijat since 2016. Like a rabid mongrel, since 1998 he has been chewing and belching new bastard beats that are aching to scream out. Consequently there’s a steaming and steady stream of vinyl releases coming.
With influences ranging from Stigmata and Mills to Master Reese and Petar Dundov, Sev Dah is a versatile but headstrong DJ that can gently ease a thumb in at midnight or fervently thrust it down the hatch at peak time.
Mote-Evolver is an indie record label looking forward. Embracing the technologies that exist and will exist while bypassing the established bloated system that has been in place for many years.
Setup in 2006 by Luke Slater, his original idea was to release music direct to you as simply as possible. It’s no coincidence that the technology of the internet and the technology involved with music are as valid as each other and can work hand in hand and here at Mote-Evolver we embrace all the technology available to get the music straight to you and into your ears as hassle free as possible and are constantly looking to the cutting edge to move things forward.
