Dekmantel Share Daniel Avery Mix
A collective that consists of an acclaimed booking agency, label, a party whose past guests reads like a whose who of achingly cool techno and one of our favourite festivals Dekmantel seems to have been amassed an unstoppable momentum in recent years and we’ve been more than happy to tag along for the ride.
Serving up the latest instalment of their esteemed podcast series, former DT podcast contributor Daniel Avery serves up his first mix in nearly a year, offering the best part of two hours worth of selections for our listening delights.
Speaking on the mix the Dutch organisation said: “Just a few years ago, Daniel Avery emerged from a famous Scrutton Street studio where the likes of Andrew Weatherall and Timothy J FairPlay were regulars. Since then, he has gone his own way, releasing a machine-made, proudly analogue brand of indie-electro-techno-dance music that has come mostly on Erol Alkan’s Phantasy Sound label.
Mixing dark beats with dense and smoky synth atmospheres as both a DJ and producer, he knows how to cook up a metallic and menacing groove with aplomb. After impressing with his debut album, Drone Logic, in 2013, we’re proud to invite him to this year’s Lente Kabinet, Dekmantel Festival (together with Roman Flügel), and our mix series.
The fabric resident kicks off his mix with some heady drones and deep, spacious grooves that are eerie and unsettling. The next 90 odd minutes sees him blend sublime acid, slithering synths and increasingly minimal techno into a seductive set that is expertly paced and seamlessly mixed. Perfect for the dead of night in some intimate back room, it shows a heady and atmospheric side to Avery that is truly compelling.”
