This time we’re heading up north, Copenhagen to be more precise. This mix features Mike – our lovely friend and fellow digger. In this episode he gets us going with a mix full of vibes perfect for the season, whether it’s for dancing or sitting by the fireplace. Værsgo…
Our next podcast is all about « god-damn-early-jersey-house-from-the-nineties » Remember Brandon Walsh, Dylan MacKay, Parker Lewis, Tom Hanson? Well, they probably spent the most of their parties dancing to these ruff and tuff MPC beats. This mix is delivered by Mark Matsuki aka Zukie173 aka Our Special Agent from Bern aka (half) Jagged. This guy is a serious digger and a raw-warm pattern specialist. Press play, enjoy the show.
Hello Marc! Let’s start with the obvious question: when did you start the Jagged project and who are the guys you’re working with?
Hi everybody! End of 2006 my friend Sandro (Smat aka Jay Sanders) asked me to get creative into producing with him. You know we had already been spinning records for years in Switzerland and abroad and I said quickly yes for doing something else. To make a step further. Continuer la lecture →
Chef de file de la movida lausannoise depuis bien trop longtemps, bourreau des cœurs invétéré et disc-jockey ambianceur, Dan, sur un coup de tête planifié, s’exile. Bien décidé à conquérir de nouveaux horizons, notre globetrotteur favori part à la conquête des dancefloors thaïlandais, vietnamiens puis américains afin de percer le secret ancestral du groove sensuel.
RC: Après des longues et fastidieuses négociations, te voilà enfin sur Rhythm Cycles, raconte nous un peu ta démarche pour ce podcast. Où l’as-tu enregistré? Quelles ont été tes envies?
DB: Il y a une année… l’idée de départ était de faire un mix avec Fred Hagen (34m2, la Dépendance). On s’est donc vu à plusieurs reprises et on a essayé d’enregistrer un mix mais sans succès. Je crois que lui et moi on a un peu le même problème quand il s’agit d’enregistrer un mix, il y a toujours un truc qui foire. D’ailleurs il suffit de constater… vous avez déjà vu un mix de Fred sur Internet? On a fini par laisser tomber et tu es revenu vers moi afin que vous fasse un mix en solo. Continuer la lecture →
Straight out of Amsterdam, we bring you Marcel Vogel. We are pleased to get to know this guy a bit better. He kicks this soulful mix off with some head nodding pieces, slowing it all down with some heavy grooves until bringing the energy back up again. Marcel being a big music lover and record collector this is what it’s all about. As he calls it: rhythmic freedom for Rhythm Cycles – get ready to sweat.
Hey Marcel, thank you so much for your mix tape. Let us get going with some questions people can read while listening to the great tunes.
Hey Mads, thanks for having me.
Recently you have started your own label Lumberjacks in Hell. So far you have released edits from yourself and a few other people. Could you tell us about your approach and use of edits?
My approach is very simple, I release what I like. The first one was the infamous Miss You edit that I had put up on soundcloud and I got so much love for it that I felt I wanted to have that on vinyl. Vinyl is my favourite format (though not the only one) for DJing, mostly because I like the handling and the inspiration that I can draw from it. Continuer la lecture →
Yo Folks! Our 14th Podcast brings us to Madrid to discover the new post-rave-dub-techno scene leaded by Esperanza’s label main figure Papol. Guided by Moritz Von Oswald’s musical legacy, his love for nature, minimalistic (but definitely efficient) studios and long time friends (aka Kasper, Franco Cinelli, Jorge Savoretti), our talented spanish mate answered to our few questions… Wanna know more about it? Follow the swiss guide…
Holà Papol ! Such a pleasure to have you here on RC. You have been running that hot, deep & dub label called Esperanza for some time now. Could you tell us about it? How did it begin & who’s involved? Genevan people know Kasper for his DJ-sets at Weetamix. Are you kind of best friends?
First of all, thank you for this space and let me speak about our projects, even more speaking about me. Esperanza is a project initially started by Kasper and me in 2005, we pretended to offer the music that we used to mix at clubs, giving our own view of electronic music at that time.
