About the concept:
Here is the one hundred and nineteenth 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 Stracid’s mix of stuff released on the label NewKids Records.
Fast, rhythmic grooves, with a booming kick, accompanied by a versatility of melodic, harmonizing tones- this is how Lukas Böhme aka STRACID characterizes the music he produces. In his songs he processes his feelings and experiences from his life.
The birth of his musical beginnings started early in his childhood. At the age of 5 he learned to play guitar and drums, followed by performances with his family and friends. From the age of 14, Lukas got to know a different side of music with techno. The decisive point for this was Paul Kalkbrenner, who still plays an important role today with his live set.
At the age of 17 he started to get involved with DJing, shortly after that he started playing at parties with friends. Then in 2018, Lukas started producing his own techno, with the goal of one day playing live in front of an audience.
The friends decided a year later to found a label called NewKids Records, which has already achieved several successes in the Beatport Charts Top 100. In the following time they also received support from well-known magazines like Faze Magazine or DJ Mag.
Today STRACID has his own live set, which he plays regularly. His biggest successes so far are that he is a part of the Lehmann Club Stuttgart and played at Nature One 2022, where he was allowed to perform live.
He is constantly striving to move and unite people with his music.
