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 Vermeer’s mix of stuff released on their label selected.


About Vermeer:
The Berlin-based DJ/producer duo Vermeer merges experimental sound design and
cinematic-music-like atmosphere on fast techno grooves. Especially influenced by futuristic scores à la Sci- Fi-Noir their detail-oriented sets definitely result in sounds one rarely experiences on dancefloors. With their latest release “Nebulas EP” on BLAKE Records, they have further established their special blend of peak-time grooves and dark goosebumps-creating textures and received early support from some of the biggest names of the genre.

Additionally, they ever since have been involved in the Berlin underground party collective “Selected Berlin” which also turned into a label last year and already hosts releases from some of the scenes’ most promising names such as Chlär, SWART, DIMI, Niki Istrefi or The Chronics. Hosting and playing at parties among many prominent acts for years, Vermeer is deeply ingrained in Berlins’ underground techno scene.


About selected:
Being originated in 2015 as an underground party collective in Berlin Selected rapidly became one of the main forces of parties for the faster styles of techno. With its members deeply immersed in the genre, they shined with their up-to-date bookings, bringing rising talents such as Kas:st to Berlin for the first time.
As the members were widely connected in the scene and have been producing music themselves for years, Selected then shifted its focus to becoming a label and again convinced with giving the stage to soon-to-be exploding newcomers like Chlär, Narciss, SWART, MCR-T, and The Chronics.

7 years into the game, they now have a resident-roster that includes Chlär, MCR-T, and CAIVA, conduct events internationally, and celebrate their 10th release with an EP from Elad Magdasi. Events are flourishing, their underground artists Lyric, Part Time Killer and Vermeer are getting more and more traction and Frederic is dropping his first solo EP in 2022. The heat is on for Selected and the temperature’s rising fast.

[Mix]: Force Mass Motion – NovaFuture Blog Mix August 2022


Force Mass Motion


It is fair to say that Force Mass Motion is a legend of the UK’s hardcore, rave and jungle scene. The man born Mike Wells has always had a high rate and high-quality output and that has kept him at the heart of the underground since he first emerged in 1989. While he pioneered a nu-school breaks sound and has released on influential labels like Lot49, Kingsize Records, Rabbit City Records and Mute’s sublabel Future Groove, he is now on his own imprint and channeling his earliest musical loves once more.

[NovaFuture Blog Exclusive Mix]: Nauthiz plays Monnom Black




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.


About Nauthiz:
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.


About Monnom Black:
Dax J’s techno record label born in the East End of London now based in Berlin


“Nauthiz plays Monnom Black”


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!


01. Stranger – Someone I Know
02. Dax J – Skyline At Night
03. LDS – The Extasy Of Construct
04. UVB & Dax J – King Of The Sewers
05. Fractions – Dead Air
06. LDS – Algorithmic Reality

09. Dax J – Deepest Border Lines
10. Fractions – Zero Ground
11. Hadone – Hope Reminds Me Of Her
