Taking your ears for a sonic HIIT class, today’s blog features an upbeat selection of treats from the likes of Eris Drew, Marcel Dettmann, Floorplan, Anja Schneider, DJ Minx and Octave One.
Eris Drew - Ecstatic Bass Transmission Mix
The High Priestess of the Motherbeat is back with another thumping mix of all things bass and breaks. A club focused deep dive through some of Eris Drew’s favourite dance floor weapons, this one’s guaranteed to test out the subs.
Marcel Dettmann – Fabric 77
Molded between the sweaty dark walls of Ostgut way before it became Berghain, Berlin underground hero Marcel Dettmann has long held a reputation as one of the greatest tastemakers around. In 2014 he gave the world a sneak peek into his fabled after hours mischief with an intricately woven techno voyage for fabric’s CD mix series.
Floorplan - Save The Children
Minimal techno king, Robert Hood is back alongside daughter Lyric Hood for their most powerful collaborations yet. The infectious disco-funk inspired record is laced with touching vocals cut from Stan Lathan's 1973 documentary of the same name, projecting a strong rhetoric that’s reflective of the current testing times.
Anja Schneider - Funk That
Mobilee records co-founder and another stalwart of the Berlin scene, Anja Schneider embarked on a new chapter in 2017 with the launch of her more personal and stripped back Sous Music imprint. Unleashing an incredible amount of top releases over the last few years, one of our favourites is this energy packed peak time body mover named Funk That.
DJ Minx - RA Exchange
A key figure in Detroit’s rich history of electronic music, DJ Minx has been a cornerstone of the iconic city for more than 30 years. Helping mentor, support and empower fellow women in the industry through her collective and pioneering label, Women on Wax, DJ Minx continues to be an inspiration all around the world. She sat down with Ash Lauryn to discuss the journey so far, the current climate and her plans for the future.
Octave One - Boiler Room Moscow Live Set
Perhaps the greatest electronic sibling duo ever, Lenny and Lawrence debuted on Derrick May’s Transmat label in 1989 with the hit single “I Believe” and never slowed down. Conquering the clubs with their irresistible blend of house and techno, the pair have built a reputation as one of the most high impact performers today. Here is their incredible all-energy set from Boiler Room Moscow.
