[Mix]: Ron Albrecht – NovaFuture Blog Mix November 2018

 

DJ:
Dave Simon

 

Introduction:
Ron Albrecht began his musical career in the early nineties. His first trips to Berlin clubs like Tresor, Bunker and E-Werk made him switch from being a regular music consumer to discovering the field of performing and DJ-ing. Obligatory visits of Germany’s possibly most popular record shops back then, such as the Hardwax in Berlin and Container Records in Hamburg, led Ron Albrecht to finding is very own style. Inspired by national and international scene experts like Tanith, Rok, Kid Paul and Jeff Mills, just to name a few, it was time to come out into the open for the first time in 1993.

Over the years he played his music in almost every club in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, but he didn’t stop there. Performances at music festivals such as the Fusion (2000, 2006, 2013), SMS (2005, 2006) and Melt (2000) as well as appearances in many well known clubs, e.g. Tresor Berlin, Ultraschall Munich, Phonodrome and Waagenbau Hamburg, Muna Bad Klosterlausnitz and most recently Berghain Berlin, maintain his musical career. While his sets of modern sound always make for variety, it is important to the artist to always enrich his music by refering to the origins of techno and house.

Between 1997 and 2002 Ron Albrecht additionally worked as a producer together with his associate Thomas Kufner, releasing several records on the labels Sind Records and ElektronikParlament. He also worked as co-operator of the Easytraxx Recordstores in Schwerin from 1995 to 2006.

Above all, his name is still closely connected to the old-established Gerberei club in Schwerin, which the co-founder, organizer and resident ran from 1994 until its closing in 2013.

Brothers in Mind, a DJ and producer collaboration, is another one of Ron Albrechts projects which he puts into practice together with his longtime friend Stefan Rein.
Their newest musical output can be found under their label Pure – “Tatort”

[Mix]: Dave Simon – NovaFuture Blog Mix October 2018

 

DJ:
Dave Simon

 

Introduction:
Music is passion. Music is the drive and is an integral part of Dave’s life. His curiosity for electronic music has existed since 1997 and is steadily growing with enthusiasm accompanying him each and every day. Since 2002 he has had a strong presence in the trendy clubs of the scene. Regular guest appearances in the Tresor Berlin, in the MTW Offenbach and numerous other locations fill his weekends. Ever since his residency in the legendary “U60311” in 2010, Dave has been at the core of the Frankfurt techno scene, gathering and pleasing his fans dancefloor with punchy beats and hypnotic sounds!

His passion for techno is not only reflected in his sets. Since 2010, the talented musician also shines through his strong releases on well-known labels such as Planet Rhythm / AFU Limited / DSR Digital / Taut / Driving Forces / Neuhain / Plakat Records. His “Traib EP” (2017) is one of the most successful releases on Planet Rhythm and was played by many well-known artists all over the globe.

Proper Techno Tunes, one of the few labels that still press on vinyl, was founded in 2018 by himself. The label shines right at the beginning with a sold-out first release and delivers once again with the second release (PTT002) hosting Mark Broom and including remixes by Luca Agnelli and flight behind. Dave builds on his success and is already back in the studio working on new productions. It can go on like this!

[Mix]: Pfirter – NovaFuture Blog Mix September 2018

 

DJ:
Pfirter

 

Introduction:
Pfirter is one of Argentina’s finest techno exports. Pushing a sound that is at once dark and uplifting, old school and fresh, he’s gradually evolved into a club music all-rounder, deejaying, producing and running one of techno’s brightest imprints, MindTrip. He’s put out massive records on the likes of CLR, Figure and Stroboscopic Artefacts, and performed everywhere from Berghain and Trésor to Awakenings, I Love Techno and Time Warp.

It was in his hometown of Buenos Aires that Juan Pablo Pfirter first made a name for himself, starting out on radio as a fresh-faced fifteen-year-old youth. In 2000, after stints behind the decks at various clubs in the capital, he left radio to focus on deejaying. Soon after, he turned his hand to production, and by 2005 he was embarking on his first European tour. What he’d experience there would change his outlook forever. Twelve months later, in 2006, he set up the first version of MindTrip Music.

This eventually led Pfirter, following the likes of Barem and Jonas Kopp, across the Atlantic to Europe in 2012. That same year, he rebranded the label MindTrip Rec. The move has worked wonders, and he’s since released music from Oscar Mulero, Lucy, Chris Liebing, Tripeo and Markus Suckut, as well as six EPs of his own original material.

2018 will see further development of the label, with a select group of releases scheduled as well as the recently launched MindTrip Podcast, which is a monthly offering of exclusively curated music from artists that best represent the sound and vision of the label. It is anyone’s guess as to just how far Pfirter can continue to challenge and push himself and the wider techno scene.

[Mix]: Inland – NovaFuture Blog Mix July 2018

 

DJ:
Inland

 

Introduction:
Inland aka Ed Davenport is a British DJ and Producer based in Berlin. A long-term love affair with intelligent, hypnotic and ecstatic shades of House and Techno led to his first releases in 2006. More than 10 years on Ed continues to pour his heart into what he does best; producing records, DJing and performing live, and running his Counterchange label.

As Inland, his output stands for purist, atmospheric club music with weight and soul; its feet firmly planted on the dancefloor, while its head scans the outer-limits for more experimental formations. The outcome is modernist electronic music that manifests itself as Techno. He performs Live and DJs in clubs worldwide playing surging, visceral selections new and old. Inland productions have surfaced on Berlin’s Ostgut Ton, Counterchange, Function’s Infrastructure New York imprint and Boddika’s respected UK bastion Nonplus+.

Productions under his real name focus of deeper, hypnotic house, euphoric late night moments and melodic minimalism. Releases like his acclaimed ‘Silver Walks’ EP on Mano Le Tough, Baikal and The Drifter’s Maeve label, or the extensive 2 x 12” ‘Festnetz’ for Adriatique’s Siamese label only solidify Ed’s skills at constructing timeless, harmonically addictive club outings at slower tempos.
