About the concept:
Here is the eighty-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 Philippe Petit’s mix of tracks released on Rekids.
About Philippe Petit:
Philippe Petit is originally from Brussels, Belgium, where he started DJing in the early nineties. After spending 15 years in London, he moved to Chamonix, France, in 2010 where he started two vinyl labels: Knotweed Records (2011) and Decision Making Theory (2013). He has a string of techno releases on his own labels, as well as on Rekids, Involve, Figure SPC, EartoGround etc.
He has played at Tresor, Suicide Circus, La Graviere, Batofar, Weetamix, Corsica Studios, and Berghain to name a few.
Rekids is a UK-based electronic label, conceived in 2006 by James Masters and Matt Edwards (aka Radio Slave). In its relatively short existence, Rekids has quickly become one of the most respected underground labels around – releasing cutting-edge, electronic music that is effective off the dance-floor as well as on it. Some of the key artists represented by the label include Nina Kraviz, Mr. G, Luke Solomon, Spencer Parker, Toby Tobias, James Teej and of course Radio Slave himself. The Rekids sister-label ‘Pyramids Of Mars’ was also launched recently – an offshoot imprint that celebrates more experimental music, with genre-bending input from Vince Watson and Joe Claussell so far. Alongside the label, Rekids hosts parties all over Europe – most notably at Berlin’s Panorama Bar and the Rex Club in Paris.
