dotwav About Their Choice:
Our label celebrates it’s 5-year anniversary, so I thought it’s the right time to do a DJ mix with KONFLKT releases only. My initial plan was to deliver a 1-hour set, but I had so much fun recording it that I just kept going. Playing all these tracks from our label made me happy and proud at the same time. This DJ mix perfectly shows what KONFLKT stands for: versatile sounds ranging from darker to melodic and uplifting techno. We never wanted to limit ourselves to a niche. However, all these tracks have one thing in common: they were especially released for the dancefloor.
I would like to thank all people who worked and partied with us in the past five years: musicians, promoters, mastering engineers, graphic designers, bloggers, friends, family members, neighbors and most importantly Paul, the other half of dotwav and our former member Jannik. Big thanks to Jürgen and NovaFuture Blog, I couldn’t have thought of a better platform to do this. Expect more music full of conflicts in the future 🙂

Cheers, Tim

[NovaFuture Blog Exclusive Mix]: Less Distress plays Cheap Records

 

DJ:
Less Distress

 

About the concept:
Here is the one hundred and 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 Less Distress’s mix of stuff released on Cheap Records & Morbid Records (a sublabel of Cheap).

 

About Less Distress:
Based in Saint Petersburg, Less Distress is a techno producer that creates fast-paced dance floor music that is not limited to one genre. Her influences are rooted in hard industrial sounds, old school tribal groove, and the deep emotions of Trance. She blends it all preferring warm analog sound from hardware.

The same diversity applies to her as a Dj. Being interested in different shades of techno, she experiments with styles, moods, and bpm, using both old school and modern elements to tell a consistent story.

She released an EP on COUP and a split EP on ALK Recordings and is on her way to getting a lot of attention.

 

About Cheap Records:
Well, here is the real story! Too many stories had been told, here are the facts: Vienna, Winter 1990 Erdem Tunakan first met Patrick Pulsinger when Dr. C. Peyfuss, Principal of the Ehtnic Music & Lifestyle Center Vienna, came over to Erdems place to introduce him to his new flatmate: Patrick Pulsinger. The next day Patrick moved all his high quality – trash equipment into Erdems studio, joined by Constantin, his “Worldradio”- self-recorded Diary Tape Collection and a bulk of tapedecks. Two nights later their first album, b.Low ” 3.11 – Eyewitnessnews on Subfusion FM ” was recorded. The 90´s had just begun. … and we have more to tell! next time…. …. the “magical” SIL and the MPC Wizard Elin aka Autorepeat.

Morbid Records is a sublabel founded by Erdem Tunakan in 1993 and run by Felix Benedikt aka Alpha Tracks since 2015.

“Less Distress plays Cheap Records”

 

Less Distress About Her Choice:
Morbid/Cheap Records drew my attention when I opened my ears to trance (and I’ve always had a thing for the oldschool sound); those hardware tracks by Erdem Tunakan and Felix Benedikt have beautiful originality and spontaneity. To see the big picture, I started digging into the various tracks of many styles released on Morbid and Cheap labels; it resonated with me since I enjoy playing diverse music. I love how the records on both labels are so different yet possess a strong sense of experiment. To delve into the archives of two labels that are carrying a deep connection throughout time was an obvious choice for me.

The name ‘Illegal Alien’ was adopted because that was the status granted by the US government to Ricardo Garduno when he lived in the United States. At that time all the immigrants who entered the country illegally were denominated like that. As a result of this, the rights of all illegal immigrants were limited or nulled in many cases. So, awarding this name to the label is a way to remember those immigrants around the world, whose objectives by leaving their countries of origin is to work for a better life and to show that, regardless of the status that other social groups attribute to us, it is possible to reach objectives.

I easily picked illegal Alien Records cause i trully believe that its one of the most open minded techno labels out there.

VERWIRRT About His Choice:
It was important for me to create a sound image that, despite the constant artist, does not sound too complex or constant, to create an exciting, energetic and driving atmosphere, that makes fun.

His tracks have their own distinctive sound, but have not stood out too much from others.
