About the concept:
Here is the one hundred and fourteenth 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 SLV’s mix of stuff produced or remixed by James Ruskin or one of this monikers/collaborations.
The identity of this project is not well defined,even less if it’s just an absolute concept rather than a life form. Born in the heart of the east Berlin,influenced by the well known techno-culture’s mecca. SLV stains the vibe with melancholic harmonies driven by dark and cold grooves which make its sound unexampled.

SLV About His Choice:
Ive always loved the sound of James , it was one of my favorite artist that I follow when I start to play music, I have almost all the vinyl he produced, I really loved how he produce every single track for that I also ask him to remix my track Encode coming out on Virgo, Ilario Alicante label.
