For the first 2018 issue of our mix series, we invited Amsterdam based Nachtbraker (aka ‘night hawk’ in Dutch!) for a sample of his tunes. Dig in & check out what he’s been up to recently…
Been touring a lot in Europe, and recently had my third Asia tour, which was amazing! Also still really happy with the EP I released in september last year. My collaboration with San Proper on one of the tunes is doing really well, and its nice to see people picking up on that.
This mix was recorded at Void Club in Bordeaux, France, 1st of December 2017. It was at a party from Electrocorp who invited me a while ago to play for them. They’re good friends, and the vibe that night was wicked. I used two CDJ2000’s, 2 Technics SL 1210’s and an Allen & Heath Xone:92 mixer. The mix was recorded on DAT tape. I picked the middle 1,5 hour of a total 2.5 hour set.
Its a live recording of my gig in Bordeaux. I was playing till close and the vibe was on fire from beginning till end. I like this recording a lot because I got to play a variety of tunes, and the people really followed my lead in there. Going from some minimal house to electro breakbeats, deep flowing house to an old Joris Voorn tune and somewhat more raw tunes.
I’ve been working hard on finishing a new EP which is due early march on my own label Quartet Series. Finished a couple of forthcoming remixes on Heist, Dirt Crew and for a Dutch brass band. A tune on a vinly only sampler for finish label Common Labour is also coming in February.
Got some nice gigs coming up, playing DGTL opening night alongside my all time heroes Floating Points and Theo Parrish for instance. Also finally get to play with Jeremy Underground at Claire Amsterdam. Planning a new Latin America tour soon as well.
