A weekly rundown of mixes and radio shows we’ve been enjoying…
“Berlin’s most hated” and founder of the excellent Love On The Rocks label, Paramida turned out a typically playful blend for the recent Robert Johnson takeover on Rinse FM. Sweltering, seductive and stimulating in equal measure.
If there’s a prerequisite for serving as resident at Sameheads or Renate, it’s that you need to be adventurous. A recent inductee into the wider Dekmantel family, Gatto Fritto demonstrates exactly why those Berlin venues trust his ability to hold it down, journeying through cosmic oddities and weirdo disco before initiating thrusters and hurtling straight into hyperspace with a second half of techno and electro.
From Angelo Badalamenti-inspired acid to classic Chicago house, space-faring techno and loads of their own material, Sasha Renkas of Antenna and Palmbomen II linked up for one of the most memorable Beats in Space broadcasts in recent memory.
Disco of virtually every shade imaginable crammed into ninety minutes worth of hip lubricating goodness, courtesy of the enigmatic edit aficionado, Loud-E. Fans of this should check out his recent contribution to Berceuse Herioque’s ‘Brasserie Heroique Edits’ series.
