Sum up this podcast in 10 words…
Groovy, Hypnotic, Banging, Energetic, Techno music we both love loads!
What’s your personal favourite track on it?
Got to be “Åme – Rej”. We heard Ben Klock close his set with this @ Photon, ADE last year, it’s one of those classic tracks to really end things on a high.
What’s the special ingredient in this mix?
A track of ours called “Orbit 2cb”. Its been a bit of a DJ tool/dance floor weapon for us the last year or so never fails to build tension on the dance floor. It’s basically a never-ending riser using an audio illusion called a shepherd tone, inspired by Hans Zimmer’s soundtrack for the movie Dunkirk.
Tell us about your next EP?
Our next EP is coming out on Arjun Vagale and Ramiro Lopez imprint, Odd Recordings. 4 club cuts including some peak-time acid madness and a bit of a dj tool that should get a few heads spinning!
What have you got coming up?
Releases on Odd Recordings, Suara and Planet Rhythm. A release on Korpus 9 which includes another collab with good friend Theo Nasa, and a remix for the talented Risa Taniguchi on Redrum Music.
And finally, do you have a special message for our readers?
Looking forward to being reunited on the dance floor and seeing people enjoying themselves again, all in good time of course!
