Take Your Time
About the concept:
Here is the nineteenth 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 Take Your Time’s mix of tracks released on Aufnahme+Wiedergabe.
About Take Your Time:
Take Your Time grew up in the Parisian suburbs. After graduating he moved to Munich to study engineering in 2013. This coincides with a major shift in his musical affinities as he progressively leaves minimal and tech-house to embrace house and techno completely. This transition was nourished by Blaxad’s two older brothers (see instalment 18 of this series). He is now 22 years old and has had enough insight in the music industry to know that he wants DJing and producing to remain his hobby and not his primary source of income. This way, he wants to separate his passion from any pressure or obligations that come with money.
Aufnahme + Wiedergabe ‘s releases offer a pretty good summary of the direction Take Your Time’s taste have been evolving towards in the past few years.
aufnahme + wiedergabe was established in 2011 by Philipp Strobel and Gabriel Brero in Berlin, Germany. Julia Meusel joined the label in 2013. In 2016 label manager Chloé Lula joined aufnahme + wiedergabe and the label built its own booking department taken care of by Alessandra Dalla Palma.
The sound of A+W is located somewhere between Neo Folk, New Wave, EBM & Dark Techno. Well-known for released by Ancient Methods, Phase Fatale and The Horrorist & Sarin. Founder Philipp Strobel is also very active DJ presenting the label of the label.

Take Your Time About His Choice:
I chose Aufnahme + Wiedergabe because the musical spirit of this label is exactly in line with his industrial affinities. It features some of the dirtiest, raw and noisy techno tracks and producers of the moment as well as a lot of new wave artists that explore combinations of industrial sounds with those of the 80s. It is that last side of the label that gives it its singularity in the techno scene and that influences the more club oriented music released on a+w. Through a+w, I discovered Boy Harsher, a band which I instantaneously fell in love with.
