Up next on the series we have a mix from Bleaching Agent and The Niallist; resident DJs at BODY HORROR, the Manchester-based collective making their mark with their queer nights and unique spaces. First up, we asked Bleaching Agent to tell us a bit about the mix and what’s on the horizon…

Recently I’ve been hopping around the UK and Europe occasionally playing gabber to rueful crowds, releasing a ton of records with Forward Strategy Group, and just finished putting together my next Gert P record, my pseudo-hardcore side project. That should be out later this year. And making a ton of discofied edits of old punk songs that I’ll never get round to playing out. Niall’s just rebuilding his studio at the moment and we’ve started making music as Body Horror.

The mix was recorded a month ago at Niall’s place in the early hours of Sunday morning. With a bit planning and discussion beforehand we just jammed on Ableton, for which we’re very unapologetic. The idea was to record 90 minutes centred around Hi-NRG without using any real Hi-NRG music. It’s fairly representative of what we play from 4am onwards. Tough music for tough people.

Up next…

We only organise a handful of Body Horror parties a year so as to keep them as big occasions. We won’t put a show on unless we have a strong set of ideas for decor, theme, and guests, we set a very high bar for ourselves. We’re also in early talks to get a Body Horror record label up and running.

This week’s mix is curated by Opal Sunn, aka Berlin-based duo Al Kassian and Hiroaki OBA. First, we asked a bit about the mix and what they’ve been up to recently…

We’ve just come back from an Asia tour which was great on so many levels. It’s always inspiring to see how the South East Asian community are building a really strong scene there. We’ve just finished a remix and also in the process of finishing our next EP for Touch From A Distance, which should be out by the end of the year.

This mix was made using Ableton in between travels and at home. It was inspired by the Berlin party Cocktail d’Amore and the set Alex played recently in the garden – a collection of tracks we’re really into at the moment.

Up next…

We’ve got a few nice gigs lined up this summer so we’re preparing a new live set, which we’re excited to share.

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

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.
