About the concept:
Here is the forty-fifth 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 Daniel Heinrich’s mix of tracks released on Float Records.

Daniel Heinrich About His Choice:
I chose float records because I’m a big fan of the style of TWR72. His label always brings new interesting tracks to the public, which in my opinion deviates from the standard of techno. I like the detailed music which creates a trippy atmosphere. I also love to put fast driving tracks in my sets and the music of Float Records offers many tracks that are over 135 Bpm fast. Every release on this label is very interesting and sound professionally produced. The driving sounds create an energy which runs through the whole set. Another reason why I chose Float Records is that a lot of my favorite artists such as Altinbas, Jeroen Search, Endlec, Legau or Tensal have released on this label
