Fri 24th Jul

Coming in heavy this Friday, today’s At Home With blog features Helena Hauff, Cajmere, Adam Beyer, PTU, Ben Klock and more.

Helena Hauff - Kern Vol. 5 Mix

Enigmatic queen of darkness, Helena Hauff recently took the reins of legendary German club Tresor’s mix series. Unleashing over 2 hours of pure chaos, the mix clocks in at 150bpm and blasts along like a bullet train on the midnight express. Sweaty business.

Cajmere - Techno > Funk Mix (2000)

While Helena Hauff runs riot today, Chicago icon Cajmere has been heating up dancefloors since the early ‘90s. Known to many for his modern tech house crossover, Green Velvet, the Relief Records boss was spinning at a frantic pace back in the day, leaving a legacy of some of the greatest mixes of all time.

Adam Beyer — No Defeat No Retreat EP

Drumcode kingpin, Adam Beyer returns with his first solo EP in five years. The two tracker is a euphoric bridge between the old and the new with ‘Park People’ stemming influence from ‘80s new wave while ‘No Defeat No Retreat’ is an entrancing epic enriched with hypnotic vocals.

PTU - Castor And Pollux

Two of Russia’s finest bringing an experimental edge to heavy hitting techno. PTU honed their sound having spent years on the fringes of the avant garde DIY scene before making the transition to techno. Now a staple of Nina Kraviz’s трип imprint, the pair possess a mighty catalog of dancefloor weapons.

Ben Klock - PHOTON Live Stream

Delivering an hour of piledriving minimal, here is the Klockworks boss in full force.
