[NovaFuture Blog Exclusive Mix]: Anja Zaube plays Headless Horseman

 

DJ:
Anja Zaube

 

About the concept:
Here is the seventhy-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 Anja Zaube’s mix of tracks produced by Headless Horseman Bill Youngman.

 

About Anja Zaube:
Anja Zaube’s DJ-bio starts in 2000, when she began playing psytrance but quickly turned towards playing more and more techno. After first appearances in the left-winged underground of Berlin under the alias „Nanday“ she took a short break and had a come-back to the turntables in 2008 with her new name ANJA ZAUBE.

After playing different genres of electronic dance music, Anja‘s sound turned darker and harder. Her interpretation of Techno is deep, bleak, but also industrial and experimental. That‘s what makes her sound unique and what finally got her several bookings in Berghain already and made her a popular DJ in the Berlin Underground Techno Scene.

After her first release in 2014 on the ://about blank 001, a sampler in celebration oft he club‘s jubilee, she also released her first own EP on the label HET, named Sylvan Structes EP, and is gonna release a lot more soon..

 

About Headless Horseman:
From the shadows to the stage, Headless Horsemans musical efforts are meticulously executed without compromise. The eponymous Headless releases sum up the modus operandi of this artist: dark, raw and rhythmic IDM flavoured Techno. His hardware only live sets at Berghain, Berlin Atonal, Boiler Room and worldwide have showcased the Horseman’s insurmountable skills as a producer and cemented his place in todays techno scene.

D.k. Dent About His Choice:
Bonzai Records – Back in the 90s this label stood out in the electronic music scene through their lenghty, somewhat spheric breaks and novel melody structure which have inspired me as a young man and DJ a great deal at that time.

I’d still count a lot of these tracks my all-time favourites.

Johannes Schuster About His Choice:
I have chosen the lable Self Reflektion because almost all of the productions are highly rave able and they have a touch of old school 90s vibe. When i discovered the lable in the recordstore and istened to the first records i was really impressed because of the unique energetic sound of the dutch label. I really like these breakbeat and hoover sounds which are often in the tracks. Beside that colorful productions i am a big fan of stranger (who own the lable) which is in my opinion one of the most talented djs and producer out there.

[NovaFuture Blog Exclusive Mix]: Kiruna plays Obscuur Records

 

DJ:
Kiruna

 

About the concept:
Here is the seventhy-first 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 Kiruna’s mix of tracks released on Obscuur Records.

 

About Kiruna:
KIRUNA – currently 27 years old, born and currently living in Augsburg, has found his “musical home” in a number of different electronic genres early on in his life. Not long after coming across his first few Techno events, he eventually met his soon to be crew mates and the future artist collective – FACETS – was born.

Fast forward 1.5 years and KIRUNA can look back on numerous events (and artist bookings like Cleric (CLERGY, Figure) / Christian Wünsch (Polegroup, Tsunami Recordings) his crew and himself realized in their local scene.

Taking a lot from these experiences, from the artists he got to meet, as well as from regular visits to the thriving scene in Munich, KIRUNAs own style developed to consist of mostly fast-paced, raw and Industrial(ish) vibes, while his preference for breaky & trancy tunes diversifies the soundscape he puts to display in his performances and podcasts.

Right now, he stays busy expanding the FACETS collectives’ reach and working on his first few releases, which he expects to put out sometime in 2019. The crew also expects to make a return to organizing events in 2019.

 

About Obscuur Records:
Utrecht-based independent record label focused on harsh techno sounds, curated and run by Diederick Trampe.

Kiruna About His Choice:
I’ve chosen OBSCUUR Records for this podcast because I think that it’s a label featuring a very individual – sometimes pretty crazy – sound which I’ve known and followed for years now: Ranging from atmospheric tracks, spreading dark and super trippy vibes to releases that surprise you with a set of uncompromising industrial bangers, you might encounter everything and anything in between. Still united by a common “strangeness” throughout that variety, the OBSCUUR discography never falls short to surprise. To showcase – almost – the entirety of their musical spectrum (as well as seeing somewhat of a challenge about making a flowing mix out of this collection which doesn’t necessarily sound very similar most times) I thought: “This will be fun :)”.

About SN 1Ø54:
She got into deep, atmospheric and moving forward techno music by raving nights at qualitative technoevents in Dresden, Leipzig & Berlin. Motivated by a friend she started soon to DJ by herself. She showed up at illegal raves and open airs, mainly together with the atopie crew (@atopiemusic) in Leipzig, followed by bigger gigs in Berlin and beyond.

For her, DJing comes close to therapy and through her sets she’s telling her story.

 

About Setaoc Mass:
As a DJ and producer, Setaoc Mass is part of a select cut of young artists who are absorbing techno’s legacy and carrying the torch into tomorrow. Whilst overseeing his own imprint SK_eleven, his releases push a galvanising brand of techno, steeped in a sense of urgency, ever-propulsive with acute detailing and nods to a futuristic space-age. In addition to a debut release on Len Faki’s Figure which has caught the eye of some of the scene’s most respected DJ’s. As a selector, the Mancunian’s extended DJ sets pull from an expansive spectrum of material both new and old.
