This week on the mix we have local Belfast DJ and Glass resident, Däïre. As usual we asked a bit about the mix and what he’s been up to recently…

I’ve really been enjoying DJing recently, had my first gig a year ago and since then I’ve had the opportunity to support some excellent artists. I recently became a resident of a night called Glass in Belfast which normally happens in the Menagerie. Been working on production for a good few months now just trying to get my head around Ableton, hopefully this develops further next year.

The mix was recorded from my home in Belfast using CDJ 850s and a xone 23c.  

I get very easily bored of mixes that have a very gradual progression. When I’m recording mixes I like to think of them as more of a movie soundtrack, where each tune plays a different scene and there can be a dramatic beginning and a euphoric end. Generally depends on my mood on the day. 

The opening for example is a sample from 2001: A space odyssey, my favourite movie which is mixed into a song from one of my close friends Patrick Carser. 

I thought it was important to include a variety of Northern Irish artists in my mix, hence the Defekt retribution remix from Cromby and Carlton Dooms Necrodancer (both unbelievable tracks). Love mixing breaks & electro at  the minute but my taste is constantly changing so I feel that each mix I record is a snapshot of my tastes at that time. 

It’s important to me to include a variety that doesn’t bore the listener, so hopefully that comes across in my mix. 

Up next…

As I said hopefully I’ll release some of my own music in the next year. Glass have some bookings in mind for next year which I’m really excited to bring to Belfast. But my main goal for the upcoming months/ years is to play AvA festival in my hometown.

This week’s mix comes from Boundary, aka the Dominican artist Josué Suero. As usual we asked a bit about the mix and what he’s been up to lately…

I’ve been working on my next full-length album and the final release of the RGB Series titled Anteriormente Conocido Como. It’s gone through a lot of changes since I’ve been in such different head spaces every time I work on it. This is some of the most personal and true to myself work I’ve done so far. I also just played my first international live show in Baja Cali, Mexico and I had an amazing time! Met some lovely people and the venue was gorgeous.

I used 2 CDJS and a XONE:92. I recorded this at Point Records in Los Angeles.

This mix might be all over the place but I think that represents what I’ve been doing this year! Has a lot of music that I’ve been inspired by, music by some of my friends and also some unreleased and upcoming material of mine.

Up next…

I have an upcoming EP titled Aerodynamics of Multimedia releasing next month and I have a release party upstairs at the ACE Hotel DTLA the 8th of December. More info soon!

Kasper Bjørke has recorded episode 110 of our mixtape series. With his past releases on labels such as Eskimo, Corrsepondant, hfn music, we caught up with him to check what he has coming up next and to ask him a bit about the mix;

I have been working on setting up an audio visual exhibition, that consists of 11 screens showing 11 art films – each film with a composition from my forthcoming album on Kompakt as the soundtrack. The album is called The Fifty Eleven Project. The films are directed by visual artist, Justin Tyler Close. The album itself is a 11 track, 2 hour long ambient album – so quite a different direction, than what I would normally do. The size of the whole project has grown extremely, due to the exhibition aspect, but I am really excited about the whole thing. I am also very happy about the triple 180 gram transparent vinyl album (in a luxurious box including a poster) that will be released at the same time as with the digital album: https://KompaktRecords.lnk.to/TheFiftyElevenProjectAR

The mix was recorded in my studio in Copenhagen, there is not alot more to say about that really, haha… I did it quite spontaneously!

I had the inspiration and energy to do something a bit more uptempo than what I would normally do on a mixtape – maybe as a complete counterpoint to the album ? Recently I have been enjoying these approx. 130 bpm techno tracks, like Automated Lover by Schacke (released on Courtesy´s label Kulør) – and since I felt like including this particular track in mix, that gave me a different starting point somehow… so it is definitely a party mix and contains some of my recent favorite tracks for playing out, when I’m djing…

Up next…

After my album is released on October 19th and the exhibition has run here in Copenhagen for 10 days, then the plan is that the exhibition will travel to LA, NY, Berlin, London etc next year…

I also plan to start producing a new EP… I feel its time to work on something that doesnt take several years to prepare, produce and put out, which has been the case of The Fifty Eleven Project album…

Cheers, guys!

This week we have London based DJ and producer Alex Warren aka Kiwi stepping up for mixtape #109. As usual, we asked a bit about the mix & what he’s been up to recently…

Well I’ve just come out of a 12 hour stint in Panorama Bar, so I’m a little hazy, but off the top of my head I’ve had a super fun summer touring, played some really special parties and had a lot of fun. The last few weeks, I’ve been trying to knuckle down in the studio making some new bits and I’ve done a few remixes that I’m super excited about, i through one of them in this mix, not sure its ready but felt right…

In my living room (south east london) I’ve built myself a really nice setup and there really is no place like home, i like to record all my mixes live, for me i don’t think it really translates well when people do them on a computer, i like to hear the mistakes.

I actually didn’t have much of an idea, i had a few beers, i started playing some slower bits warmed myself up,  i ended up playing for a couple of hours i think, but just trimmed the beginning off for you guys to get it down to a bitesize 1 hour. It includes a nice variety of bits, and has a good flow. <3

Up next…

I have an EP on Correspondent coming soon which I’m super excited for and theres a 12” on CinCin with Joe Goddard on the flip. Theres a couple of other EPs signed for next year and I’m also launching a collabs label/party called Crossbreed, then theres a handful of remixes to come before the end of the year.
