Introduction:
Based near Bari in the south of Italy, Gianluca Caiati aka Kaiser started making his first steps in 2007 by practicing on old turntables, mixing house, classic, disco, funky and electronic music.

Introduced to the international scene since the very young age of 18, Kaiser started to make his own music and during the years he has released his productions for such labels like Planet Rhythm, Animal Farm, Konflkt, Quant, End Of Dayz, made of CONCRETE, with great results and feedbacks by international artists who regularly play his music.

Moreover, he is working for great clubs around the Italy and for best places in the EU techno scene and also, has shared the major club console with the best international artists.

In the mid of 2018 Kaiser starts his own imprint “K S R” where the meeting of his multi-faceted art takes shape.

Of course, he is always working and looking forward on new discographic productions and most of all improving himself to reach new goals.

[NovaFuture Blog Exclusive Mix]: Dug Techno plays Jeff Mills

 

DJ:
Dug Techno

 

About the concept:
Here is the forty-ninth 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 Dug Techno’s mix of tracks produced & remixed by techno legend Jeff Mills.

 

About Dug Techno:
Dug Techno was born of the desire to discover & play timeless 12″s. As many as possible, which is why I sell vinyl for a living. First at Phonica & Kristina Records, then at Berlin’s recordsale.de. I literally have ~3.000 new records per day to choose from and have been surrounded by fresh inspiration for years now thanks to working in music shops. I carry this with me into sets and reflect these influences into the diverse range of parties & performances I have organised or been a part of over the best part of a decade in London.

I believe progress and evolution are at the heart of Techno and the best is yet to come. But only through the modification, enhancement & subversion of Techno’s tropes can the genre’s boundaries be pushed out further into the unknown. Thus: with knowledge of the past we must strive forward to create anew!

 

About Jeff Mills:
Jeff Mills is considered to be one of the most brilliant DJ’s and producer of techno in the World.

He is the most recognised representative figure of the Detroit Techno scene, where he began his career as a DJ on the WDRQ radio in 1984.

He created the collective “Underground Resistance” alongside “Mad Mike Banks”, which became a reference in the electro sphere.

In 1992, Jeff Mills created his own label “Axis”, allowing him to keep his artistic independence and produce his own timeless electronic music compositions, inspired of science fiction.

While he performs as a DJ all over the world, averaging 100 dates in a year, Jeff Mills’ artistic career goes much further than simply techno music.

For over a decade, he has transcended disciplines with a large number of collaborations in contemporary art.

Jeff Mills is involved in numerous projects at this moment in time, and is forever evolving and recreating his individual artistic performances, within and beyond any given boundaries.

Dug Techno About His Choice:
Aged 33 Jeffery Eugene Mills inaugurated the Purpose Maker series. This label covers the fierce tribal funk of his early years, is home to The Bells and the stylistic focal point for my mix.

The EPs on this imprint can be testing if listened to from front to back – but they were not made for that. Instead, they’re the ultimate DJ tools. If you’ve never heard The Wizard in action, there’s only one thing to say: no one does it like Jeff! A man(-machine) so technically & creatively adept he drives crowds to elation with 909 solos and 3-layered mixes that undermine any notion of predictability thus allowing you to truly get lost in waves of raw rhythms.

This mix is my distillation of that spirit, composed with Mills’ records only, 3x Technics & a Xone:92. I like to think of it as A Firework Display In Reverse.

The man is a living legend and I suspect one day his drum machines will leave the planet returning The Wizard to the rings of Saturn, where meteorites clash & clash against each other to form rhythms we could never imagine as Jeff rides out to infinity in a locked groove of cosmic proportions.

Jeff, if you’re reading this: you’re my hero!

[Mix]: Inland – NovaFuture Blog Mix July 2018

 

DJ:
Inland

 

Introduction:
Inland aka Ed Davenport is a British DJ and Producer based in Berlin. A long-term love affair with intelligent, hypnotic and ecstatic shades of House and Techno led to his first releases in 2006. More than 10 years on Ed continues to pour his heart into what he does best; producing records, DJing and performing live, and running his Counterchange label.

As Inland, his output stands for purist, atmospheric club music with weight and soul; its feet firmly planted on the dancefloor, while its head scans the outer-limits for more experimental formations. The outcome is modernist electronic music that manifests itself as Techno. He performs Live and DJs in clubs worldwide playing surging, visceral selections new and old. Inland productions have surfaced on Berlin’s Ostgut Ton, Counterchange, Function’s Infrastructure New York imprint and Boddika’s respected UK bastion Nonplus+.

Productions under his real name focus of deeper, hypnotic house, euphoric late night moments and melodic minimalism. Releases like his acclaimed ‘Silver Walks’ EP on Mano Le Tough, Baikal and The Drifter’s Maeve label, or the extensive 2 x 12” ‘Festnetz’ for Adriatique’s Siamese label only solidify Ed’s skills at constructing timeless, harmonically addictive club outings at slower tempos.

[NovaFuture Blog Exclusive Mix]: Black Mirror Park plays Boston 168

 

DJ:
Black Mirror Park

 

About the concept:
Here is the forty-eighth 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 Black Mirror Park’s mix of tracks produced & remixed by Boston 168.

 

About Black Mirror Park:
Black Mirror Park started playing records a few years ago and quickly founded the Sonntagsinstitut Collective as a platform for him and his friends. After three intense years and various events at venues such as Mensch Meier, ://about.blank and Arena Club, they’ve decided to slow down a bit. So here he is with lots of time to shop for new records and play a few intimate gigs, which is frankly all he could wish for at the moment.

 

About Boston 168:
Along a surface, within the empty silence of an abandoned setting, the factory noises still echo: in the beginning was the production line, then the working class of the consumer society, lastly machines and robotics as workforce. So in those factory cities, in Michigan as in UK and in the Italian motown Turin, the industrial plants have been occupied by the rave subcultures, the mechanical noise replaced by the sound of techno. Now the plants have become sound venues, and getting involved with techno can be seen as a search for a meaning for the kids who grew up in that industrial setting. In Turin, industrial and musical manufacturing city, Boston 168 is born, formed by Sergio Pace and Vincenzo Ferramosca, an analogic duo that through sound production aims to redefine a peculiar field of the electronic sound, Acid Techno. Boston 168 is a laboratory of sound crafting: Sergio Pace and Vincenzo Ferramosca are two electronic researchers, who have spent years working on vivisecting sound in order to create new solutions for the techno substance. In 2010 the two young producers co-found Old and Young label: a combination of the experience of Gambo with their fresh point of view in order to redefine the basis of techno. The two young producers start working on their live set: as a result, they irradiate with cosmic warmth the dawns in warehouses, ex-industries and clubs, taking their audience on techno voyages at traditional speed, looking for new gravity spaces and sound blackholes. Sergio Pace and Vincenzo Ferramosca’s meticolous work mixes up the acoustics of the traditional machines which made the history of techno, Roland Tr909, tr707, Moog Mother 32 and other technological hardware. The feedback of the international techno community is huge: Boston 168 publish on different labels such as Enemy, Involve, Oddeven, their live showcase travels to France, Italy and around the Europe. Oblivion EP, Black Hole EP have a huge outburst on Decks.de and stay at first place on Beatport’s techno chart for weeks, the tracks Terror Acid and Acid Morning are played at Berghain. Boston 168 is working on the new EP on Attic Music, the Italian techno label curated by Fabrizio Lapiana. Two scientists and a live set for a new dawn of Acid Techno.

Black Mirror Park About His Choice:
I love 303-based music in all forms and shapes, be it Electro, Acid House or Oldschool Techno. For me, Boston 168 have been the vanguard of the 21st century acid renaissance in the field of Deep Techno. Since their perfect „Black Hole EP“ on Involve back in 2015, I have been admiring their consistency in quality and soundscape. Even if I have to admit that the spectrum of their sound is rather narrow, for me, this is no drawback. Focusing on a certain aspect of Techno and developing a unique expression in this field is what I call aspiration. Boston 168 are one of the very few artists of whom I could blindly buy any new release without being disappointed.

 

Tracklist:
01. Boston 168 – Nightcall (Instrumental)
02. Boston 168 – Seven Heads
03. Boston 168 – Cosmic Radiation
04. Exilles – XY (Boston168 Remix)
05. Boston 168 – Until The End
06. Boston 168 – Rise Again
07. Boston 168 – Blue Bridge
08. Boston 168 – Split String
09. Boston 168 – Oblivion
10. Boston 168 – Saber
11. Boston 168 – Vera
