make.me.wonder

 

About the concept:
Here is the sixty-fourth 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 make.me.wonder’s mix of tracks released on Trip.

 

About make.me.wonder:
make.me.wonder is Anastasia Ivanova and one of the founders of the YooDj’s project. YooDj’s goal is to show the variety of electronic music and its amazing power.

Anastasia was always interested in music as she can remember. She even tried to compose something at the age of 8, at that time she was just starting to study music, but then somehow it was all forgotten. And now she want to catch up, so she has the plan to make a EP. Electronic music attracts her more than instrumental, mostly with its idea and diversity, because here one person can use a bunch of instruments without needing an orchestra at all.

She live on Crimea where you cannot find any places e.g. club with that kind of music, so she can only dj at home.

 

About Trip:
4 years aog Nina Kraviz launched her трип (pronounced ‘trip’) label with the release of the double-EP compilation entitled ’The Deviant Octopus’, featuring a pair of brand new productions from Kraviz alongside material from Terrence Dixon, emerging talent Parrish Smith & Bjarki, and veteran producers Exos & Steve Stoll.

The idea for трип has been gestating for some time with Nina Kraviz, an avid crate-digger and frequenter of numerous second-hand record stores, who has long wanted to begin a label of her own which would build on some of the principles of her beloved 90s techno labels in terms of attitude and aesthetics, whilst looking for forward-thinking modern productions that reflect her core tastes for idiosyncratic electronic music.

[NovaFuture Blog Exclusive Mix]: Meryt plays Reeko

 

DJ:
Meryt

 

About the concept:
Here is the sixty-third 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 Meryt’s mix of tracks/remixes produced by Reeko.

 

About Meryt:
Matthias Springer aka Meryt is a Dj / Producer from Augsburg and Co-founder (and part) of “Facets” collective. His sets are defined by a unique soundprint inspired by elemental waves in the construction. A deep atmosphere accompanies the hypnotic kick rhythm, Minimalist synth and acid records the sound.

 

About Reeko:
The biggest challenge a musician or producer of any musical type or style has to face, whether they like it or not, is to see whether their work can create a path that other artists will follow or lay the foundation for the work of other artists. Juan Rico, the Asturian known within the scene as REEKO, is well aware of this.

Born in Oviedo (Asturias) in 1981, Reeko is a dj who has rapidly attained the recognition other artists have taken a long time to gain. In his case it’s not been a matter of chance or coincidence, but the result of his innateand incredible capacity to be prolific, alongside his obsession for perfection. He marks is his birth as a dj about 1997, but it wasn’t until his first release in 2002 under the Swedish label Emergence that he became known professionally.

There is no need to name all the aliases that Juan Rico has used to release the diverse artistic sensations which flow from him, but these are characteristic which define his personality and are a part of REEKO himself. Producing and performing under different names allows him to concentrate fully on each individual event by devoting himself completely to an idea or style to which he is totally faithful, putting aside for a moment sounds andinfluences that don’t belong in the particular character which he is mutating into at the time.

The result is a knock out. Under the name of REEKO he has released huge techno productions which have charted and been played by the best djs in the world, right from the first tracks and EPs for labels as reputable as Theory, Main out, Integrale Muzique, Deafmosaic, Inceptive, Rxxistance, Trece Records, Symbolism, Planet Rhythm, Warm up or Palicavonzvreca.

Reeko created Mental Disorder, his “pathological” label/laboratory, in 2003 under which he has released 12 works of ever increasing quality. The latest (The Day After, 2010) received a wonderfully warm welcome as one of the best releases in Hispanic Techno of the year. Artists such as Gennaro le fosse, Pacou, Oscar Mulero have collaborated with his very personal label.

Next came the label Evidence in 2005, where he opens up to his passion for the darkest and sickest part of the human mind. He looks deep within the human psyche where most of us would never go or dare explore. That is where the laconic, aggressive and totally sweeping sound that characterises him stems from. Reputable artists who have published with Evidence are Function, Paul Bailey and Trolley Route, to name a few.

He has received great praise for his collaborations with the Humano project and the Belgian label MusicMan, home of the purest of European techno. During this last decade, his most outstanding performances have been in Awakenings and Monegros 2005, Aquasella, Tresor and his Brazil tour of 2008.

The story so far reaches a climax when Reeko joins the cream of techno: the Pole Group, formed in 2008.

Reeko finds himself, unexpectedly but deservedly, among the elite of Hispanic techno.

[NovaFuture Blog Exclusive Mix]: Javier Bähr plays Stroboscopic Artefacts

 

DJ:
Javier Bähr

About Javier Bähr:
Javier Bähr is a DJ and Producer from Munich, Germany. The former MMA – Mixed Munich Arts residents is a member of the techno label From Another Mind. By side the dancefloor orientated music he also curates the label and Radio Show Rohstoff, which sets his focus on ambient, drone, industrial and noise music.

 

About Stroboscopic Artefacts:
Stroboscopic Artefacts is the type of record label that can be compared favorably to respected catalysts like Warp and Basic Channel. While SA’s releases certainly do share some of the same sonic DNA as those imprints (e.g. the Warp-like concept of sound as non-orthogonal architecture, or a Basic Channel-esque romancing of spatiality and depth), it is the similarity in attitude which makes SA a reliable torchbearer those organizations’ efforts. The black-and-white floral motifs that grace the center labels of SA records, as well as the Monad series’ emphasis upon music as a messenger of organic evolution, capably hint at this: a fixation on growth and on ‘blooming’, on an incessant accretion of new ideas and new formal elements that must transcend any self-limiting expectations of genres or cliques. Stroboscopic Artefacts therefore endures not because it is concerned at all with the defensive act of ‘surviving,’ but because it is consumed with this determination to live a growth-oriented life and to accompany others in their personal quests towards the same.

About Killekill:
KILLEKILL is a Berlin based company promoting music and events since June 2008. It began its journey as a weekly club night at Berghain Kantine. The ominous towering form of the ex-power plant setting the perfect scene for what was to come. The club-nights featured experimental live electronics, mesmerizing visuals and distinctive artwork courtesy of artist Flexn… Word quickly spread: There was a new crew in town and they meant business.

It was not long before the Killekill team shifted their attention towards creating a physical platform through which they could spread their sound across the globe. Thus, Killekill Records was born.

In keeping with the ethos of the club nights, the label sought to forge a new sound, its own sound. Each release combines a love for things new and old – merging the past and future, featuring a choice-selection of classic analogue cuts reminiscent of the early 90’s Sheffield bleep sound sit alongside cutting-edge atmospheric techno, hand-carved from pure static.

It should come as no surprise that each vinyl quickly found its way into record bags of some of the most-respected names in today’s electronic music scene. Aphex Twin, Surgeon, Rob Hall, Luke Slater, Blawan, Perc, Norman Nodge and Phil Kiernan are but a small few of the many artists who have supported Killekill in events across the world. Not one to be blinded by success, founder Nico Deuster and the Killekill team remain as dedicated to their sonic investigations as they were on night of the very first event; each release uncovering the previously unknown, following a jagged path, deep into uncharted sonic territory, whether it’s techno, acid, electro or abstract electronica. Following this idea, KILLEKILL has also kicked off the KRAKE FESTIVAL in 2010, a Berlin based festival for experimental dance music, as they call it.

2016 sees the team continuing to ignore boundaries set by record sales, trends and genres and taking it to the next level by starting several new labels.

Stay tuned for our future!

[Mix]: Ron Albrecht – NovaFuture Blog Mix November 2018

 

DJ:
Dave Simon

 

Introduction:
Ron Albrecht began his musical career in the early nineties. His first trips to Berlin clubs like Tresor, Bunker and E-Werk made him switch from being a regular music consumer to discovering the field of performing and DJ-ing. Obligatory visits of Germany’s possibly most popular record shops back then, such as the Hardwax in Berlin and Container Records in Hamburg, led Ron Albrecht to finding is very own style. Inspired by national and international scene experts like Tanith, Rok, Kid Paul and Jeff Mills, just to name a few, it was time to come out into the open for the first time in 1993.

Over the years he played his music in almost every club in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, but he didn’t stop there. Performances at music festivals such as the Fusion (2000, 2006, 2013), SMS (2005, 2006) and Melt (2000) as well as appearances in many well known clubs, e.g. Tresor Berlin, Ultraschall Munich, Phonodrome and Waagenbau Hamburg, Muna Bad Klosterlausnitz and most recently Berghain Berlin, maintain his musical career. While his sets of modern sound always make for variety, it is important to the artist to always enrich his music by refering to the origins of techno and house.

Between 1997 and 2002 Ron Albrecht additionally worked as a producer together with his associate Thomas Kufner, releasing several records on the labels Sind Records and ElektronikParlament. He also worked as co-operator of the Easytraxx Recordstores in Schwerin from 1995 to 2006.

Above all, his name is still closely connected to the old-established Gerberei club in Schwerin, which the co-founder, organizer and resident ran from 1994 until its closing in 2013.

Brothers in Mind, a DJ and producer collaboration, is another one of Ron Albrechts projects which he puts into practice together with his longtime friend Stefan Rein.
Their newest musical output can be found under their label Pure – “Tatort”
