[Mix]: Gerald VDH – NovaFuture Blog Mix December 2021

 

DJ:
Gerald VDH

 

Introduction:
Gerald is the founder and mastermind behind the infamous MEAT MARKET parties in Vienna, Austria’s thriving capital city. For almost a decade he has been running an outrageous amount of techno nights, all of which are well rooted in the LBGTIQ+ community.
 
Being a DJ first and a producer second, Gerald’s main ambition is to travel and play his favorite music in front of audiences all around the globe. His sets explore various genres of electronic music, while maintaining the balanced energy to keep a dancefloor busy for hours. With gigs in clubs like MMA Munich, Distillery Leipzig and (his favorite place on earth) Berghain Berlin, Gerald made a name for himself as a performer and music lover, who would give his life to save a punter’s night out.
 
In 2017 Gerald started the label MEAT RECORDINGS. The imprint specializes in pret-a-dancer techno music with a focus on quality and groove. The label has seen fifteen releases so far, six of which have also been published on vinyl. Watch out for more releases in the very new future. Providing the soundtrack for the motion picture NEVRLAND (2019) is another highlight in Gerald’s vita. He has just finished work on his first full length album, which will hit shelves mid 2022.

[Mix]: Chontane – NovaFuture Blog Mix November 2021

 

DJ:
Chontane

 

Introduction:
Growing up in Berlin, Chontane started playing in his city’s clubs at the mere age of 19. Starting things off with a residency at the Krach nights in Humboldthain and now having played at some of the most prestigious clubs like Tresor, ://about blank, OHM, and Griessmuehle, Chontane can be increasingly found blurring the lines between techno, breaks, and electro in the German capital.

Part of the new wave of producers more invested in sound design and razor-sharp productions than ever before, Chontane’s early studies in music and sound design allow for surgical precision; the results of which can be found in his densely produced tracks. His sound is anything but conforming, pulling in UK-style rhythms rethought at times through twitchy IDM arrangements to add to his recognizable punch. As a result, his tracks stand at a stylistic crossroads between various dance genres, easily slipping into just about anyone’s tracklist if their goal is to get people moving.

With his first record release in 2018 still receiving praise and support, Chontane has wasted no time in reaffirming his capabilities. With another successful collaborative release on Magic Power with WERK co-founder J.Manuel and a 4 track EP on the Special Projects sub-label of Radio Slave’s Rekids imprint, his most anticipated release yet is on standard-setting label ARTS in 2021.

With his roots grown deep in the world’s techno capital, Chontane’s career is well on its way to becoming international, having joined the VOLTAGE roster in 2021. Ready to push boundaries and surprise partygoers with unexpected blends to fire off his erratic taste in music, Chontane’s mixes and productions represent today’s necessity for the perfect balance between consistent innovation and guaranteed efficiency.

[Mix]: Scripted – NovaFuture Blog Mix October 2021

 

DJ:
Scripted

 

Introduction:
The Berlin based DJ is founder of DELUSION, an audiovisual event series and record label launched in 2015 with its roots in Bremen.

His sounds are precisely geared to his idea of giving listeners the chance to escape into their own mindtrip and perceptions of sound by minimising noises that induce associations in order to take the listener to an unknown atmosphere.

Deep spherical tensions and hypnotic synths sophisticated with broken beats build up a continuous arc of suspense to the crowd.
Always meticulously striving to merge the perfect sound patterns and structures, he dived into the analog world of production to round up his musical output which you can explore on the first release of DELUSION.
