Ease into the week with our fresh pick of mixes, release and more. Featured in today’s blog are Dauwd, India Jordan, 1-800 Girls, Afrodeutsche, Al Ester and Steffi.
Digging deep into his record bag , stripped back house aficionado and African Acid Is The Future affiliate, Dauwd, delivers an expertly woven mix of enchanting dim lit grooves for the Phonica mix series.
Back in March, Caribou took over crackaud.io with a curation of 5 standout mixes from some close friends and peers. Well worth a listen through all, but our pick of the lot is this free flowing upbeat meander from last year’s breakout star, India Jordan.
Fellow virtuoso and streaking newcomer, 1-800 GIRLS returns to Lost Palms with another exceptional EP. A 5 tracker of sun kissed gems fusing euphoric house, cosmic acid and a touch of rave with a tasty 160bpm remix from Will Silver
British born, Ghanaian-Russian-German composer and musical polymath, Afrodeutsche’s unique productions merge a classical upbringing with influences of Drexciyan electro, Detroit techno and UK electronica. One of our go tos is Drink from her 2019 EP, RR001.

It’s incredible to think how diverse the creation process of music can be. Almost every producer works in a different way ranging from a complete in the box approach of meticulously manipulating samples and automation to an all-analog hands on approach of riding the groove in search for the magical imperfections of the live performance. Dutch house and techno great, Steffi gives a sneak peak into her approach with this 10 minute masterclass.
