About VSSL:
Born and raised in Munich, VSSL disovered his passion for Music already in his younger Years. Playing various instruments during his youth brought him the basic musical knowledge, which he can now use very well in his field of electronic music. To share the different types of techno and to try to create something special behind the decks is one of his biggest attempts. By trying to mix all those different kinds of music he loves, is what he sees as a challenge and, of course, he takes it on. Mostly he plays with his partner in crime Jango S at Rote Sonne Club where they became residents especially for the Stock 5 crew- a label and party organization where every night is one to remember.

 

About Michal Jablonski:
Born in Warsaw, he has been closely associated with the club culture of the capital of Poland for over a dozen years. The heavy sounds extracted from the black plastic disc inspired him to do more, to go a step further and create his own music. He sought inspiration in crowded cities and the correlation of nature with industrialized society. In music, he looks for something that is not obvious and still to discover. He is focus on his original productions, where you will find a rich mixture of dense industrial atmosphere, off beats sounds and monumental film music elements driven by energetic kick.

He releases his music on VSK’s CRS ltd, Secret Keywords or Newrhythmic recs to name a few and his performance can be found in most clubs in Europe.

[NovaFuture Blog Exclusive Mix]: Epi Centrum plays Synewave

 

DJ:
Epi Centrum

 

About the concept:
Here is the seventy-sixth 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 Epi Centrum’s mix of tracks released on Synewave.

 

About Epi Centrum:
Warsaw’s analog techno maverick Jurek Przeździecki (b.1973) is one of the more powerful and uncompromising voices in former Eastern Bloc electronic music music scene. Bred throughout the 90s on a varied diet of first wave techno, new beat and post-industrial mutants like SPK or Psychic TV, he developed his own vision of highly intricate and detailed yet definitely danceable, funked-up techno for connoisseurs of the genre. Actively involved in producing music for 2 decades plus, he started his career in world-touring Bigwigs, later to release his solo and collaborative stuff on such labels as Cocoon, Whirlpoolsex, Synewave, Recognition, Nachtstrom Schallplatten or Affin. His productions were appraised and played out by numerous DJ/producer heavyweights including Laurent Garnier, Oliver Ho, Joey Beltram and DJ Hell, while Depeche Mode’s Martin Gore included Jurek’s track in band’s tour DJ set. Currently, he recorded two quite successful EPs with Jacek Sienkiewicz as a duo Tumult Hands. He’s been also quite busy focusing on his longrunning Epi Centrum project whose LP will be out on Damon Wild’s Synewave Records soon. He devotes most of his time to studying arcanes of deep composition and researching the possibilities of various legendary studio gears, such as Buchla’s modular Morton Subotnick-designed System 200e. Lives and works in Warsaw.

 

About Synewave:
Synewave is the New York techno label founded by Damon Wild in the mid-nineties. He decided to make his own label to do his own underground thing and that’s where ‘Synewave’ came in. The label was a complete success and the first ep, Morph – Stormwatch, which was produced with Dennis Ferrer, was a strong start. Following with Ausgang and then “Bang The Acid”, which really fired off the label. Then “Avion” was also followed and it was heavily supported by Jeff Mils, Laurant Garnier, Luke Slater, and many others around the globe. ‘Synewave’ has had many prolific talented artists like Dennis Ferrer, The Advent, Joey Beltram, Mark Bell, Steve Stoll, DJ ESP, Function, Blue Maxx, Voyager 8, Tim Taylor and Ausgang. ‘Synewave’ gave the start to many important artists of today like Epi Centrum.

Epi Centrum About His Choice:
I have always loved the noisy, dark side of Synewave, even before I started DJing. The label boss Joachim Spieth, Arnaud Le Texier, Ness and the other artists were a true inspiration for me.

The hypnotic and spirited rythms of the tracks always hit the crowd from the deepest chamber of their hearts. No matter what the context is, I try everytime to drop an Synewave track in my every set.

I would like to thank all the artists those who have contributed to the construction of the modern sound of Synewave.

[NovaFuture Blog Exclusive Mix]: Vertige plays Affin

Vertige

About Vertige:
Vertige is an up and coming Techno DJ/Producer based in Ankara, Turkey. His background in vast music genres (from classical music to metal) influence his style of playing.

Also being the co-founder of the new electronic music organisation “Cérémonie”, he aims to create a ceremonial spirit, a sacramental feeling on the crowd with his selections.

 

About Affin:
Yes, now it has been a decade since i started my own label. It pretty much mirrors my state of mind, my emotions, and my personal development.

Of course, it’s not just my story; numerous artists shaped the label with their music, shared thoughts and ideas…to look back now, it feels like a journey. At the beginning, the only rule was to experiment and to develop naturally with open minds and in a friendly way. To feel independent from others’ opinions or trends guided us in every step we made with Affin throughout the years.

The last two years has shaped the music and the approach of the label on an emotional level. This removes the separation between home and club, which motivates me more than ever.

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

 

DJ:
Anja Zaube

 

About the concept:
Here is the seventy-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.
