About the concept:
Here is the one hundred and eighteenth 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 Vermeer’s mix of stuff released on their label selected.
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.
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.
