About Stevyl:

Exactly 2 years ago I started with vinyl meanwhile CDj´s. My passion for techno is unique. I was inspired a few years ago when I myself stood on the dance floor and was allowed to feel the sound of the harmonizing basses.

After a short consideration I started to hang up on turntables.

I also founded the label/collective Concrete with a good friend in October 2018. In the near future we will throw raves with hard and dirty sounds. The production of tracks will take place in the next few years. so since curious

About Nine Inch Nails:
Nine Inch Nails, commonly abbreviated as NIN (stylized as NIИ), is an American industrial rock band formed in 1988 in Cleveland, Ohio. Singer, producer and instrumentalist Trent Reznor was the only permanent member until the addition of English musician Atticus Ross in 2016.

Reznor recorded the debut NIN album, Pretty Hate Machine (1989), while working as a janitor at a Cleveland recording studio. After feuding with the label TVT Records about promotion, Reznor signed with Interscope Records and released the EP Broken (1992), with a different sound. Albums The Downward Spiral (1994) and The Fragile (1999) were released to critical acclaim and commercial success.

Following a hiatus, NIN resumed touring in 2005 and released their fourth album, With Teeth (2005), to further success. Following the release of Year Zero (2007), Reznor left Interscope, saying the label had “ripped off” fans. NIN continued touring and independently released Ghosts I–IV (2008) and The Slip (2008) before a second hiatus. In 2013 NIN released their eighth album, Hesitation Marks (2013), under Columbia Records, followed by the EPs Not The Actual Events (2016) and Add Violence (2017) and their ninth album, Bad Witch (2018).

Reznor typically assembles a live band to perform with him. The band has varied over the decades, and as of 2019 includes Robin Finck, Alessandro Cortini, and Ilan Rubin. NIN tours often employ thematic visual elements and elaborate light shows, and songs are often rearranged for performance.

NIN have sold over 20 million records and have been nominated for thirteen Grammy Awards, winning for the songs “Wish” and “Happiness in Slavery” in 1992 and 1996 respectively. In 1997, Time named Reznor one of the most influential people, and Spin has described him as “the most vital artist in music”. In 2004, Rolling Stone placed NIN at 94 on its list of the 100 greatest artists of all time. They were nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2014, their first year of eligibility, and again the following year.

Echion About His Choice:
I’ve been listening to the music of Trent Reznor and the people he has surrounded himself with over the years to form Nine Inch Nails for almost a decade now. I started listening to it at a time when I mostly liked it because of the lyrics, which helped me through a lot of dark times. Although back then I could not even remotely understand what a musical genius this man has been. Now that I can also recognize and appreciate Nine Inch Nails for their music itself, I am almost obsessed with their ability to keep on pushing the boundaries and keep on evolving. There is not a single piece of music by Nine Inch Nails I do not value. To me, they have always been a big source of inspiration and influence me until now. That‘s why I‘ve chosen Nine Inch Nails for my mix.

01. Nine Inch Nails – Help Me I Am In Hell

[Mix]: JANEIN – NovaFuture Blog Mix October 2019

 

DJ:
JANEIN

 

Introduction:
During his time as a DJ and Producer, JANEIN’s musical career has been akin to the flight of a spaceship. While not without it’s obstacles, the young german artist has been running on full gear unintimidated and has henceforth left big marks on the techno scene like BASSIANI, Distillery, Institut Fuer Zukunft, Blitz Club Munich, ://about blank and TRESOR Berlin to list a few.

Be it by running the SEELEN imprint, dismantling one of the stops on his quickly growing tour-schedule or delivering relentless, trance-tinged techno cuts with a clear nod to pulpy 80’s science fiction. His selection in one of his DJ-sets also shows a particular sensibility to what makes Rave culture, with a unique take o techno spanning modern chugger’s to old school EBM anthems.
