About the concept:
Here is the ninety-seventh 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 Sekulahr’s mix of tracks/remixes produced by VSK.
Sekulahr is an Istanbul based DJ/producer and a well-known name of the local techno scene. He is also the co-founder of Vast Perception collective/label and, has been organizing events to contribute to the development of underground techno scene in Turkey since 2017. He first came into contact with music during his early childhood years by starting to play his mother’s old classic guitar and, thereafter he had a chance to perform several genres such as blues, funk, jazz and rock in various bands till he met techno music during his late college years. Since that time, his perception of music has been enlarging and, he started to aim at finding/creating his own sound. In his performances, he is focused on building dense industrial atmospheres blended with offbeat elements and powerful low ends.
Francesco Visconti, better known as VSK, is an Italian techno dj and producer, born in Rome in 1986 and based in Berlin.
Since his earliest youth he has had a huge passion for electronic music, and through hanging out at the famous record store from the Capital “Remix”, he was introduced to the world of djing when he was only 16 years old.
He has got familiar to different forms of techno, his style ranging from a sound usually very hard and dark, often with industrial influences, to a very different one, deeper and more mental, both still easily recognizable as coming from the same mind.

He began an education as an audio-engineer and sound-designer, in music and especially in television, working in different recording studios; currently he does this alongside his artistic career.
In 2010 he and his friends Conrad Van Orton and Vilix started their own label “Consumer Recreation Service”, which got immediate support from big names in the international techno scene, currently he has been handling “CRS ltd” series, focused on a darker and more industrial sound.

In 2017 he started performing live, both individually and as part of a duo with the Serbian artist Scalameriya. This collaboration brought to several relevant releases on the British labels Power Vacuum and the legendary Perc Trax, as well as leading to their appearance in the MORD box 002.

Sekulahr About His Choice:
He crafts sounds that I’ve never heard of and, are always inspiring. I have been following him closely for years and can point out that his perception of music has been evolving and after each phase of this evolution, I find myself saying “Well, now techno has a new benchmark.”.
