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.

Ground (Japan) – Logo

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.

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.

Tracklist:

2001: A Space Odyssey Sample 

Percboi 3000 – Lucifer 

Tangents – Jindabyne (Four Tet Remix) 

Seb Wildblood – Bad Space Habits 

Lone – Pulsar 

Cromby – Retribution (DeFeKT Remix) 

Vanity Press – Get It From The Sound 

Lone – Oedo 808 

DJ Seinfeld – Sakura 

Holding Hands – Socket Power 

Carlton Doom – Necromancer

Transparent Sound – No Call to New York (Larry McCormick Remix)

Bruce – What 

Clap clap! – Ode to Pleiades (Photay remix)

Niles Cooper – If We Try We Can Start Anew 

Aphex Twin – IZ-US

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!
