Do it Yourself: A guide to Brooklyn’s New Wave

Nik Dawson is tearing chunks off some unidentifiable street food under the vamperish red hue of the lighting at OHM in Berlin. Cowering in the DJ booth, hunkered over, hood up, his lip curls around his dinner with a snarl in guarded frosty reception to any would-be stranger. Sybyl Jason is currently deep into a […]

JM#083 – Olefonken

“I’m just waiting on the artwork” says Olefonken when I quiz him on the mythical Hubbabubbaklubb album. I remember speaking to lead singer Morten Skjæveland about the release in the summer of 2016, to which he replied something like: “whenever Olefonken feels ready to let it go”. Something of a musical perfectionist, Olefonken’s obsession with Hubbabubbaklubb’s […]

Introducing Remii

Remii’s remix of El Hermano by Carloscres on Bogota records wraps itself around the bottom end of the original. Slowing it down, the producer beefs up the sub-bass whoomph of the track, with a bouncing Electro-House take on the original. The mix lives alongside mixes by Jay Tripwire and Bogota boss Ivaylo and stands apart […]

Album of the Week: KiNK – Playground

KiNK is one of the most prolific record producers of our time. With little more than a Fender Rhodes piano, and a bit of a loop he’s able to conjure alluring House arrangements from what appears to be a bottomless pit of creative inspiration. His discography is a vast, expansive collection of music that is […]

Mix of the week – Hunee

Brilliant Corners in all its audiophile persuasion, replete with Klipschorn speakers and high-end rotary mixer, inspires a kind of refined listening experience away from gnarling, aggressive club format that suits a DJ with an eclectic approach well. It inspires a certain DJ to flourish, a DJ with a kaleidoscopic vision of music, who is able […]

It just makes sense with Perel

“I never dared to become an artist” says Annegret Fiedler over a phone call with the release of her debut album looming closer.  “It was always kind of there, but I never really thought about it”, she explains – “I never thought I was good enough”. Annegret’s voice struggles a little under the consternation of […]

JM#082 – Davidow

A Jæger institution, Mandagsklubben has been with us since the beginning and its residents Jeff Niels, Andre Bravo and Davidow make up an essential part of the foundation of Jæger today. They are the glue that ties the week together as we descend from the weekend into the week, providing a platform for some of […]

Beyond a culturally determined reality with Burnt Friedman

There’s something about Burnt Friedman’s music that’s impossible to pin down between  genres, styles or cultural cues. The German artist’s music exists beyond any zeitgeist or totemic musical pole in an unifying artistic language all onto its own. With an acute focus on rhythmical structures to an almost obsessive degree, Friedman’s work operates on the […]

Taken from a recent set at Villa, where Øyvind Morken warmed up for Ron Morelli, this mix made it on to the Dimensions podcast series, where Morken is due to make a return appearance this year. An opener set playing in lower BPMs and picking at fringes of electronic music through ambient, synth wave, and […]

Mix of the Week: Huxley Anne

Exploring the tenuous exchange between LA’s beat scene and the UK bass scene, comes this lush mix from LA beatmaker from Huxley Anne. Digging deep between Hip Hop and Dubstep and experimental breakbeat from the likes of Noisia and Untold, Huxley Anne creates a sauntering mood that floats effortlessly between those worlds. Even Thundercat puts […]

A dozen questions for Call Super

Joe Seaton, the man behind the Call Super moniker, has quietly been carving out a name for himself in the modern electronic music lexicon over the last six years. As a producer he commands the album format with great skill and the two examples, Suzi Ecto and Arpo via Houndstooth, are exemplar approaches to the […]
