About the concept:
Here is the one hundred and seventeenth 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 Nauthiz’s mix of stuff released on Dax J’s label Monnom Black.
Berlin based, Ruhrpott raised youngster Nauthiz is still pretty new to the scene.
Nevertheless, he has a lot to proof: from first appearances in Berlin’s Suicide Club over contributions to established podcasts like The Techno’s Children and Excess up to several shows around the Ruhr area, Nauthiz seems to be a promising newcomer.
In contrast to his innocent appearance, the musical socialization of the never aging Berliner by choice went from Metal- and Hardcore in his early ages through harder Techno and Schranz more recently. Just these influences shape the characteristics of his sound: hard hitting, fast paced, nostalgic and rhythm oriented.
Inspired by the nordic rune “Nauthiz”, which represents overcoming suffering and a challenging fate, he sees his mission in spreading energetic, powerful vibes for more vital forces.

Nauthiz About His Choice:
Monnom Black was a very obvious choice for me, yet there was still going a lot of thought into it. I first thought that I might feel limited choosing tracks from only one label.
Therefore, I wanted to pick a label where I not only highly identify with the music and artists, but that also lets me choose from a wider range, while still staying true to my style and taste.
From sound-design-heavy ambient and EBM oriented releases to more dreamy stuff and four to the floor club bangers, Monnom Black never ceases to excite me!
