About the concept:
Here is the thirty-second 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 Gräfin’s mix of tracks released on Skryptöm.
Gräfin was born and raised in Istanbul (29 years old). Besides being a pharmacist, music and especially the techno scene is her life. She began my music career as a vocal first, and also graduated from state conservatory. Electronic music production, creating her own atmosphere while DJing got much more essential than anything. Until this time, she shared the same stage with Amelie Lens, Sam Paganini, Mind Against, Anja Schneider, Francesca Lombardo. She likes to captivate people with the dark but also energetic stuff.

Gräfin About Her Choice:
It’s one of the labels that made me love the other side of techno music, the soulful one. I love the vibe, the expression and the story in their music. There are different genres you can find, combine together. Still, the whole Skrptöm family speaks the same dialect. Their style is gloomy, mindful and also moving. I really admire this type of music, it mesmerizes the crowd and gives a moment they can’t forget.
