JM#055 – Mikael Gordon

Deep and pensive, Mikael Gordon stepped into our sauna on Sunday and as the sun disappeared behind some ominous clouds he took to the Jæger mix, delivering a mix that looked to the deeper end of House and Techno. With a selection of tracks brooding on the fringes of the dance floor and encouraging some […]

Catching up with Charlotte Bendiks

A lot has happened since we last spoke to Charlotte Bendiks. While she continues to play all over the world, she’s also brought a new live show to the stage, released her brilliant debut for Cómeme, “Hidden Tracks”, and will be inducted as a Jæger resident this week when she kicks off her new IRONI […]

Album of the week: Charlotte Bendiks – Hidden Tracks

Primal, dreamy and abounding with atmosphere, Charlotte Bendiks’ debut on Cómeme establishes the northern DJ and producer as the new definitive voice above the arctic circle, upholding a legacy established by Biosphere and Bjorn Torske singlehandedly today. “Hidden Tracks” is a six track EP that joins a dotted line between the rhythms of a warmer […]

Album of the Week: Welcome to Paradise II

Young Marco’s idea of paradise is not some image of a beach, palm trees or an exotic location, but rather a sound.

Stream Karima F’s Upperberry Vibrations mix

A very dynamic […]

And now for something completely different: Clubbing in the UK

2008 London, and I’m standing outside the George & Dragon (a cultural fixture that sadly got lost in the gentrification that still ensues in London today), with a flat pint in my hand on an unusually warm summers evening. It’s my first weekend back in London, after a long absence and I’m determined to find […]

JM#53 – August

August breaks out of the gate of his Jæger mix with a dubby, stripped back groove. A track that just keeps walking on the spot, instills a tangible Sunday mood before bongo drums, sultry pads, and a pulse join the fray. 4/4 territory awaits and through a slow progression August takes the energy from a […]

IRONI with Charlotte Bendiks & Ana Helder

Serious music for playful pleasure, a beat almost sustained beyond polyrhythms and an arctic soul playing for warmer temperatures. This is IRONI, a concept from Charlotte Bendiks. Where the Tundra meets with the equator and primordial pulses find new forms of sensual physicality IRONI exists on its own terms. IRONI is earnest about music, but […]
