  • Resident Selections: June 2016

    Ten tracks that represent our current sounds and inspiration. From Cold Radiance. Field Records, 2016. Iori’s latest LP “Cold Radiance” was an indelible journey through ethereal ambient, eclectic sounds and “A Fall Of Moondust” was just one of the highlights. Deceivingly slow-burning, this piece whirrs and spins – building the tension before the action ahead. - From Doctrine. Hypnus, 2016. It’s hard not to admire the cohesiveness of Hypnus and its community. Under the guidance of label-boss Ntogn, their brand of  tribal, trippy techno has become almost iconic. “Okuyi” from Swedish producer Skymn is a perfect illustration of the Hypnus aesthetic – solemn and understated but with a surging composition that edges it solidly toward the dancefloor. - From Gajeree. Semantica, 2016. Von Grall is fast becoming one of the most revered producers within the French scene. “HJDD” is pulled from his latest EP on Semantica and features his trademark skittering broken-beat percussion and tension-laden atmosphere. - From All Grown Up. BleeD Records, 2015. Following on from quality production and mixtape releases and high-profile performances around Europe, Volte-Face certainly is hot property at the moment. “Chain of Command” is taken from his late ‘15 release “All Grown Up”. Slow-burning, subtle and hypnotic, this track also builds an unbelievable level of tension and intensity with its sparse elements. - From Islands. Random Island, 2016. The unusually monikered Inter Gritty has only just entered our periphery, but dang has he made a mark quickly. His latest LP “Islands” is an acid-tinged opus that hints at ambience but revels in the highs of solid, percussive techno. “Stac Lee” is my early pick thanks to its hypnotic rhythm and persistent, upbeat drive. - From Acidub. Kontra Musik, 2016. Andreas Tillander’s (aka TM404) love for classic synthesisers shines through on his superb new album “Acidub” on Kontra. True to its name, acid and dub form the basis of this album, but it is the range that he explores between that I find exciting. “Sapto” finds itself on the exotic range of the spectrum, with reverb-affected percussion and burbling synth undercurrent. - From Etherwerks 07. Etherwerks, 2016. Rasmus Hedlund and Ness… what a combination! Groovy, deep, atmospheric – and totally devastating when that kick starts in earnest around the 2 minute mark. 100% class. - From In Absentia – Tome I. Delsin, 2016. I feel as if Shlømo has been flying under the radar for some time, but after excellent releases on the likes of Delsin, Arts and Invites Choice, it seems like he is becoming hard to ignore. “Escape From The Void” is lifted from his EP “In Absentia”, and is a track that uses airy percussion to invigorate and lift a moody, cinematic burner. - From 5 Years of Artefacts Chapter Two. Stroboscopic Artefacts, 2016. Another dynamic duo – this time in the form of techno world beaters Speedy J and Lucy. Heavy on tribal atmosphere, this stripped back number rumbles its way through 11 fantastic, chime-filled minutes. - From Semantica 10.II. Stroboscopic Artefacts, 2016. Solid, driving… Banging. But also not without a decent measure of trippiness on top.  This slick production comes from Berlin duo Cassegrain and featured on Semanticas latest label compilation. Perfect peak-time dancefloor fodder. Full Playlist:

  • 05 – Ascorbite

    The fifth Patterns of Perception mix is a deep and driving techno affair by Ascorbite. Residing in the south of Sweden, Ascorbite has since his debut release in 2014 kept himself busy with producing and DJing as well as taking care of his own label, Corseque Records. The first Corseque EP called ‘Subarctic’ received excellent feedback and playtime from artists like Stephanie Sykes, Laurent Garnier, Andreas Tilliander and Inter Gritty when it came out late 2015. In a few months the label’s second 12” drops, but you can already hear two of the tracks in this mix. Ascorbite's Links: Facebook SoundCloud Resident Advisor Tracklist: 1.

  • Resident Selections: April 2016

    Ten tracks that represent our current sounds and inspiration. From The Furthest Reaches. Auxiliary, 2016. I just recently discovered ASC, but already his achingly beautiful, atmospheric soundscapes have made an indelible mark. Arc seems wonderfully lush on first listen, but hidden beneath the layers of synth is a subtly driving percussion that complements the track perfectly.  Steve - From Stockholm_Helsinki 1.0. Reclaim Your City, 2016. The Swedish word “drömsyn” refers to a vision or realization that you have in a dream, and I believe this definition reflects the track flawlessly. Evigt Mörker somehow always manages to strike the perfect balance between euphoria and melancholia; subtlety and dancefloor drive. Kim - From NGLY. L.I.E.S., 2014. A simple, effective number that starts with a groove, and builds with decadent vocals and twisted textures – sounds that run endlessly through your mind after a long night. Hysteria - From the Enoha EP. Nonplus Records, 2011. Tribal with an analogue flavour and a hint of dub, this is a classic example of how Kassem dances between techno and house, perfect for when you can’t decide between dark room or the open air. Hysteria — From the Octagon EP. Eklero, 2016. For us, Acronym is one of the heroes of the deep techno movement. Toeing the line between hypnotic trippiness and euphoric ambience, his productions never disappoint. This superb remix for Italy’s retina.it takes the eclectic industrial sound of the original and imbues it with layers of melody and atmosphere. Steve - From Chosen 2. Affin, 2012. Master remixer Jeroen Search turns his hand to the restrained brutality of this cut from Swiss duo ad.lib & silvision. The darkness and force of the original is stained with a microdose of acid, making for the kind of track that beguiles the mind as execrably as it moves the body. Andreas - From the Ciphers EP. Midgar, 2016. This mesmerizing techno masterpiece from Japanese up-and-comer Wata Igarashi’s latest EP is an instant favourite. Its psychedelic soundscapes and staccato drums are sure to lift every dancefloor it touches. Kim - From NX1 08. NX1, 2016. NX1 typify the level of techno quality coming out of Spain at the moment. Collaborations with Developer and Adriana Lopez, as well as releases on Semantica, M_REC LTD and their own NX1 imprint have seen them steadily build their reputation. This track, NX1 08 22 was lifted from their most recent EP, and combines hypnotic composition with an upbeat and yet somehow unsettling vibe. Steve - From the Diagnostic Federation EP. Prologue, 2011. Ness has slid seamlessly between a variety of genres in the two decades he has been DJing and producing music. Diagnostic Imaging perfectly embodies his current techno sound: deep, mesmerizingly hypnotic, and pushing ever forward. Andreas - From The Last Vehicle EP. Dement3d, 2012. Deep, dark and driving are the three qualities I look for in a track to play late in the party, when time and space have given way to sound, light and movement. Few producers capture this moment better than Polar Inertia, and few tracks better than this one. Andreas Full playlist:

  • 04 – Josephine Hellström Hansson

    For the fourth edition of our mix series, we’ve asked Swedish producer and in-demand DJ Josefine Hellström Hansson to showcase her take on techno and house.

  • 02 - Hysteria

    Hysteria (Ray Pham) remains a bit of an enigma.

He rounds off 2015 with the second mix for Patterns of Perception, with a focus on a driving and energetic sound to help bring in the new year.
