About Theatral Soup:
Exactly 2 years ago, the non-commercial music blog Theatral Soup (also DJ Alias) started as an hobby project to write passionately about current and older publications in the field of electronic music. In addition to reviews on fresh EPs and larger albums, compilations and genre contributions, the focus is also on the presentation of local techno DJs from Nuremberg, Berlin, as well as international interpreters in the field of Underground Techno, Industrial Techno, Dub Techno, Electro, Experimental, Ambient and EBM. The sound of THEATRAL SOUP is heavily influenced by industrial sounds, but also explores the dark sound worlds of Dub Techno, Detroit Electro, Hypnotic Techno, Experimental, Ambient and Breakbeat. Label greats such as Aufnahme + Wiergabe, R-Label Group, Perc Trax, Emerald, ILLIAN TAPE, Lobster Theremin or Sonic Groove, the Nuremberg event series Kiss Club, CIAO! presents, LIBT and Out of the Box are among the big musical role models and influences.

 

About Peryl:
The roughness of punk embedded in the rigor of Techno, encased in pounding layers of EBM, adorned by a string of obscure noises from other times and spaces. This is how one could try to take on the musical oeuvre of Peryl. Hailing from the rural Southern expanses of Germany, the young artist has entered the parquet of electronic club music to deliver a message. Several messages, actually.

With every track, with every record, with each of his critically acclaimed live sets he is telling a story. Not a story whose meaning’s already been laid out, but one that’s open to its respective audience. From relentlessly aggressive Techno to macabre, ambientesque Noise, from rough and energetic Breakbeat straight into virtually violent Industrial – Peryl’s style doesn’t do boundaries. Neither does he put them on himself nor his audience. He rather takes on each musical moment, be it in the studio or in the club, as an approach to play with those stylistic boundaries, to pull them apart, to extend them to a degree that the audience can’t find the genre-pigeonhole to put it into.

Theatral Soup About His Choice:
Two years ago, Peryl’s Lust EP literally sparked my fascination for noise-heavy techno music and rocking EBM influences. The characteristic and unmistakable hellish sound of Peryl ensured an exciting and never-ending search for violent and dystopian soundscapes in techno music and is one of the most played and most listened to artists of mine.

[NovaFuture Blog Exclusive Mix]: Achat plays Znzl

Achat

 

About the concept:
Here is the one hundred and eleventh 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.

Find links to all instalments at our overview. Today we present you Achat’ mix of stuff produced by Znzl.

 

About Achat:
Achat is a DJ and producer based in Berlin.

Due to his urban origins in Frankfurt and Stuttgart, he has been influenced by the city life and has therefore quickly become enthusiastic about technical and electronic music and the respective scene.

Since his father also had a successful career as a DJ at a young age, he quickly developed a taste for his own sound production and compositions.

Over the years he evolved a unique experimental sound, evoked through dark percussions, wild Hi-Hats and diverse arrangements, inspired by brute industrial techno and Berlin Breakbeat Parties.

 

About Znzl:
Producer and familiar with turntables since his early teenage years, Znzl took inspiration from many genres to forge his techno.

Insatiable and eternally unsatisfied, he is always looking for new paths, creating a unique vibe, be it in intimistic venues or big warehouses. In a constant connection with the people, one will often see him jumping behind the decks, taking them on a journey from dark shamanic soundscapes to blissful moments of happiness.

Willing to help the others, he created and curated Level 32 podcasts pushing new talents to the front of the scene. He also took part in the creation and development of labels such as Wrongnotes, Messe Noire until he funded Demian Records with NN and Soundness Properties.

With a third EP released early 2020, the imprint intends to lay the fondations of a new genre, at the crossroads of cinematic and industrial techno. One of the field of expression of Znzl, whose productions had been in the line of sight of Ancient Methods, I Hate Models, Perc, Tommy Four Seven, to name only a few.

“dotwav plays Konflkt”

 

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.

 

Listen:
“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.

 

Tracklist:
01. Love The Machines! ‎ – Machine Tales
02. Io – Station To Station
03. Robert Hood – Nighttime World
04. Love The Machines! – Perforation-R
