Wednesday’s selections are in. Featuring Eris Drew, Rødhåd, Ben Ufo & Helena Hauff, Kerri Chandler, Kowton and more, here is your daily digest.
Eris Drew - Mystery Of The Motherbeat Mix
A shining beacon of the underground and a shamaness behind the decks, Eris Drew’s spiritual approach to music aims to unlock the mind from the cultural shackles we place upon ourselves. Having experienced an intense awakening at a rave back in 1994, the T4T LUV NRG co-founder has been on a never-ending quest to lead others to that same place of realisation. A recent upload of her deep and emotionally charged mix from 2018 sees Eris explore the mystery she calls the ‘Motherbeat’.
Ben UFO B2B Helena Hauff - Sónar Festival Mix
Ben UFO and Helena Hauff are two industry heavyweights so when Sonar pitted them together there was quite the frenzy of anticipation. While Ben UFO is a genre-fluid marksman, Helena Hauff is a heavy hitting electro juggernaut, so the dynamic was a risky yet intriguing proposition the music world was bursting to hear. The product? A perfect compromise and a flawless traverse through the many layers of house, techno and electro. We look forward to welcoming them both to ION in Dhërmi, Albania this September.
Rødhåd - Mood
Usually found dishing out a relentless catalog of techno, Rødhåd recently shared an 18-tracker of isolation ambience in an aptly named project titled Mood. The works are an intricate and moving reflection of the current uncertain climate as well as dive into the inner workings of the constantly evolving sonic palette of the Dystopian king. It is available as a free download on Bandcamp.
Kowton - Bubbling Under
The legendary Bristolian producer blurring the lines between techno, dubstep and house, Kowton is responsible for some of the biggest UK underground hits of the last decade in Glock & Roll and Iodine. One that slid slightly under the radar is the driving peaktime basement roarer named Bubbling Under from the 2016 Utility album.
Interview with Jeremy Deller
Turner-prize winning conceptual artist, Jeremy Deller has been one of the leading figures fighting the social and political importance of rave culture since its inception in the early 90s. From his countless gallery exhibitions to the live Acid Brass band and his latest BBC documentary, Everybody In The Place, the Londoner recently caught up with RA in this awe inspiring interview.
Kerri Chandler - Reel-To-Reel Session
A true house music pioneer, Kerri Chandler’s music has been pulling on the heartstrings and boogie dancing with the soul for 3 decades and, just when you think you’ve got him figured out, he finds a way to outdo himself. In this recent Live Session for Resident Advisor, the Madhouse Records founder shows off his unprecedented skill on some Reel to Reel Tape Decks.
