This week we have Mikron on the mix for episode 118 of our series. The Irish brother duo – Michael and Ciaran Corcoran – recently released their second album on Sheffield label Central Processing Unit. As usual, we asked a bit about the mix and what they’ve been up to lately…

Our 2nd album Severance came out recently on CPU records and since then we’ve just been working on some new music. We also played our first ambient live set in London a few weeks ago.

The mix was recorded at home using Ableton. There’s no idea behind it really just a selection of tracks we’re really into at the moment that have influenced us.

Up next…

We’re just working on some new EP’s over the summer and continuing to develop our live set.

Episode 117 of our mixtape series comes from Private Press; the project from Warsaw duo Adam Brocki and Jan Wóycicki. First up, we asked a bit about the mix and what they’ve been up to lately…

We’ve been mostly spending time in our studio, working on our first Boiler Room session and finishing upcoming Rekids stuff. We also found some time for new productions, jams and our other collaborative projects and solo stuff. Tried to dig for a little bit more music, so we had some “quality time” with discogs and web browser as well.

The mix was recorded in our studio. We used 2 CDJs and XONE mixer, recorded two mixes and then cut them and put them together. We also add 2 tracks in ableton. At the end we used some EQ’s and add some special juice.

We thought we’d bring some tracks that we were recently playing and longtime favourites. Not any special ideas!

Up next… 

Studio work as always, few gigs around Europe. Already mentioned Rekids EP will be out on May 17. Later there’s gonna be the third EP for Indigo Aera and also the second EP on our label Ziemia with Bartosz Kruczyński/Earth Trax. As always, want to be more involved with hip hop and reggae/dub projects, beats and collabos…we will see :D

Tracklist:

Earl Brown – How I Feel

C&M Productions – True House (More Filter Mix)

Terry Lee Brown Junior – Mindless Tides

Cherry Bomb – Undercover

Up next on the series we have a mix from Frankfurt’s Ludwig A.F. Röhrscheid, who released his debut EP ‘Velocity’ at the end of last year on his own Exo Recordings International. We caught up with Ludwig to ask a few questions about the mix and what’s on the horizon…

So far 2019 has been a great year for me as I started touring internationally more and more. I have also just released the second EP “Oxygen” on my own label Exo Recordings International. This mix was recorded in deep contemplation here at Fenix Studios.

With every mix I make I tell some sort of story but I think telling my version of  it would only spoil it for other people.

Up next…

I’ve got some great shows confirmed for this year and look forward to travel around and playing my music to people. More Exo records for this year can also be expected.

After a short hiatus, our mixtape series is back & kicking off with a mix from Bawrut, Italian-born Madrid-based DJ and producer. Here’s a bit about the mix & what he’s been up to recently…

I’ve been splitting my time between gigs and studio in 2018. I have been working on a lot of remixes and original music, can not wait to see this music being released. I have also been playing regularly around Europe and at the club where I’m resident, Mondo Disco here in Madrid. Earlier this month my remix for Hammer came out on Correspondant and another one for Todh Teri is out now on Get Physical. Other upcoming remixes for Tunnelvisions on Atomnation, italo music legend Alexander Robotnik and Italian electronic act Cosmo are coming out soon.

I recorded the mix in my studio, since i don’t have any CD player (just a couple of SL 1210) i used Ableton Live.

I put different dancey vibes in this mix. I wanted it to be a sample of what I play in a 3 or more hours set but packed in a 70 mins mix. It moves between genres and BPMs very quickly, from downtempo to upbeat.

Up next…

I’m putting final touches to new music right now and hoping to have two new EPs out this year. I am sitting on a lot of demos, loops and ideas, I’m curious to see what happens and I am (or at least trying) taking a little break from remixing and focusing on my music this year.

Tracklist:

Rekid – 85 Space

Ground (Japan) – Logo

Enea Pascal – Joseph

Davis – Ordinary Sleep

Ditongo – Internazionale

Warehouse Preservation Society – Multitude of Sin

Bitch Volley – Patate 45

Piezo – OiOiOi

Off The Meds – Belter

Hammer – Orange (Bawrut remix)

Vin Sol – Body Snatchers

Cosmo – Tristan Zarra (Bawrut “No Polizia In Our Raves” Remix) Todi Teri ft. Naja – Arooj (Bawrut Remix)

Szare – Miner

Throwing Snow – Subtitles

Tunnelvisions – Imaja’s Drum (Bawrut Remix)

Piero Fidelfatti – Ocean

Phillipi & Rodrigo – Minas

For the final episode of the series of the year, this week’s mix comes from Justin Strauss. As usual, we asked a bit about what he’s been up to recently and if he could tell us a bit about the mix…

I have been in the studio working on projects with Joe Goddard & Marcus Marr, Moscoman, Max Pask, Lauer, and Soulwax. And dj gigs back here in the States and Europe. 

The mix was recorded after hours at the Lot Radio studios with Cdj’s and some vinyl. I call the mix Something for your mind. Just a selection of some new and older things that I love.

Up next…

More recording and planning my next trip to Europe in April. Some new remixes coming for Dark Entries, Jacques Greene and Amy Douglas.
