About the concept:
Here is the twentieth 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 Hórnbęrg’s mix of tracks released on I/Y Music and associated labels/editions.
Since nearly 20 years in a relationship with electronic music. He runs the podcast series “Gramofonowa.” Catch him for details.
About I/Y Music:
I/Y (I = Irakli / Y = Yacoub) is a Berlin based duo that met there and delved into techno at the beginning of the millennium. Since its inception, I/Y has tried to go beyond functionality and explore singularity in electronic music. In the abyss of atonal and dystopian soundscapes – never leaving character once and shirking the colorful accoutrements of false hope – they observe everything : “the world is ending, future is a fallacy, we have no choice but to celebrate the dying light of our civilization with mourning and wild dancing.
But not only being artists themselves they run the label of the same name, releasing their own and friends’ stuff plus curating also the vinyl output for STAUB and MOMENTS.

Hórnbęrg About His Choice:
Only few words. The label I/Y and the guys behind are representative for diy quality, realness, friendship and a open mind for something new. It´s not a secret that the beloved [STAUB] partys are also a big point why i chose the label. That’s all.
