A weekly rundown of mixes and radio shows we’ve been enjoying…
Rolling out refreshingly kaleidoscopic, nuanced techno on Whities, it’s been great to see Avalon Emerson finally get the props she deserves over the past couple of years. The Berlin-based artist is a killer DJ to boot, journeying through the gloomier corners of her record collection for Cashmere Radio.
Sheffield boasts a strong tradition of electro dating back to the early ’90s and the influence the genre has on the Steel City is alive and well, notably through CPU Records and its founder, CPSmith. Here he is on the buttons for a recent Boiler Room broadcast, “schooling us younglings with some bona fide classics.”
Christening the FTP mix series, Frankfurt’s Hi Tek Jaz dials up the energy with an unfettered hour’s worth of jungle, juke, footwork, ghettotech and electro.
NYC residents DJ Voices and Unscented DJ delve into the output of a Factory Records mainstay, traversing the vast back catalogue of Vini Reilly’s legendary post-punk outfit, the Durutti Column. Check the tracklist here.
