Episode #058 - NGLY

We are extremely honored to present to you our next guest mix by NGLY. The NGLY project is based somewhere in the northern parts of Berlin and has caused quite a stir in the underground community with it’s recent releases on CCCP and the ever-amazing L.I.E.S. recordings. It’s DIY, dynamic and leftfield approach to techno and house music and it’s distinctive sound immediately caught our attention as soon as we heard it- and have received lots of support from some of the greatest DJ’s around (like Mick Wills, I-F, and Lee Douglas, just to name a few).

Earlier this year, we got in contact with the man behind the NGLY project and offered him to do a guest mix for deathmetaldiscoclub to showcase some of the influences that have shaped the sound of NGLY. He thought the time was right to reveal a tiny bit of his own universe and the things where he is coming from- and since we offered him one hundred percent artistic freedom, it turned out to be an offer he couldn’t refuse.

Episode #057 - Mark Vandemaat

Our newest mix has been submitted by Mark Vandemaat. Mark is one of the founders of Knekelhuis, a collective from Amsterdam that hosts events, radio shows and more recently, has launched it’s very own booking agency and record label.
Since we see a lot of similarities between the Deathmetaldisco crew and the Knekelhuis crew, we invited Mark to represent the Knekelhuis sound as best as he could and the result shows absolutely no remorse. It’s bitter, it’s wild, extremely hazardous and dark.

Episode #056 - Gemini Brothers

This week we have a guest mix from another Balearic outfit. Gemini Brothers consists of Ionut and Razvan from Bucharest, Romania and they have been producing together for more or less two years now. They have been incorporating all sorts of styles into their work, ranging from dark and psychedelic disco to house, techno and even some bits of acid.
These guys appeared on our radar earlier this year, when they released a remix for Hiem on the amazing NANG records and were quite surprised by their very diverse sound. They have been sending us their demo's for quite some time now and we invited them to the series to showcase some of their work in progress and some of the stuff they personally love. This is the result.

Episode #055 - Konstantin Timoshenko

We are really happy to present a new mix by Konstantin Timoshenko. Konstantin is a regular DJ in the Bulgarian disco scene and also the mastermind behind the KMTR project. Eight months ago, he did an KMTR mix for Deathmetaldiscoclub. That one got a whole lot of positive response, and since we enjoyed it so much, we decided to invite him once again to the guest mix series. Both parties agreed it would be cool to host something more personal this time, so this is why we are not calling it a KMTR mix. The result is once again, a super-danceable and cosmic disco mix that will definetly get you funkin' to the beat.

Episode #054 - Thomas Knobben & Joey Zeelen

We've got two local talents from Amsterdam on the show this week. Joey Zeelen and Thomas Knobben have been playing records for about two years now. We meet them a lot during events in the city and since we have a lot of mutual interest when it comes to music, have grown into good friends of the Death crew over the past 12 months. These are two honest men with an honest sound who'd rather look the other way, instead of following the newest trends in electronic dance music.

Episode #052 - Tronik Youth

Eclectic mixage from the southeast of the UK this week. We've got mister NEIN records himself - Mr. Neil Parnell from Canterbury, England in the mix. Neil has been on a major roll with his Tronik Youth project in the past 12 months. We first got to know him through Andrew Weatherall's visits to Amsterdam and we've also heard the Optimo guys play some of his records. Earlier this year, he had the honor of doing a mix for the Disko Selectors guys, which was quite amazing. Later, he got in contact with us and offered to do a mix for us, we just couldn't resist. This is the result, a relentless, tight, eclectic mix that really showcases all the sounds that influence him.

Yør - Lack Of Beeing EP

DJ TLR's Creme Organization returns with a whole batch of new releases after the very succesful 'Innershades remix package'. First up, is this very destructive release by the mysterious Yør, who is, according to the press sheet, a Hamburgian Art School prodigy.

The 'Lack of Beeing' title track opens up with haunting pads that will go on for 5 minutes or so, before it's first bassdrum will kick in. Grainy percussion is layered on top of it's merciless 909 kick, that unveil it's filthy nature straight from the first kick and an amazing overdriven bassline takes that filth even way further. This track clocks in at almost 15 minutes, but it's full of balance, with Legowelt-like pads and harsh, distorted claps and enough variation in the composition to hold a crowd's attention, this will be a personal favourite of us for years to come.

The next two tracks continue very much in the same approach, with crazy, filtered and distorted basslines on 'Unbennant' and filthy, low-pass filtered pads on 'Torn'. While both tracks are absolutely mint, it is a bit of a shame that such genius has to suffer in length due to the limited runtime of the vinyl (they both end around the 3-minute mark).
It's closing track 'Apophis' however, is in a class of his own. It's housey/jackin' vibe is a very big contrast to the rude, indecent and muscular techno tracks that run before it. Such contrasts are always a bit risky on a 4-track compilation, but this track is very much welcome after the horrifying madness and we're sure this pumpin' slo-mo jam will find it's way into lots of DJ bags in the coming months.

The 'Lack of Beeing' EP will be released on June 9th, through the Godspill mailorder and we are sure it will find it's way into your favourite record shop not long after that. Pre-order now, cause this one's a winner!

Episode #051 - Alexander Robotnick

We are absolutely honored to present to you this exclusive mix by Maurizio Dami, aka Alexander Robotnick. A DJ/producer who earned himself a legendary status amongst electronic music and dance music enthusiasts. He's been at the forefront of disco/electro for over 30 years now and has released many, many classic singles that still get tons of airplay these days.
His most notable hit-single is the ever-effective 'Problemes d'Amour' from 1983, but over the years Maurizio really cemented his name in history as an ultra-diverse producer. Especially in the last ten years he proved himself a force to be reckoned with, releasing piles of electro monsters on labels like Crème Organization, Endless Flight and his own Hot Elephant Music imprint.

In this all-exclusive Robotnick mix, he showcases some of his finest works ever made, both released and unreleased. He melts them together in a way that only he is able to, and the result is an extremely tight mix that never ceases to amaze.

We want to thank Maurizio for all his efforts. It truly is an honor, since we are such big fans of his. If you'd like to find out more on Alexander Robotnick visit some of the links below and best of all, enjoy the show!

Episode #050 - Mick Wills

We've been puzzling for days to find the right DJ to represent deathmetaldiscoclub #050, our second milestone in the reboot of our guest mix series. Eventually we could call only one name that would satisfy all of our members needs and tastes and represent the deathmetaldiscoclub aesthetic in a perfect way. His name is Mick Wills. He was happy to indulge and we are extremely excited that time has finally arrived for you to check out the result. This really is a perfect fit!

Mick Wills has been one of DJ Hell's Gigolo Records greatest stalwarts for years and he's also an important representative of Traxx's legendary Nation. And there is great reason for this. Mick is one of those very few artists that has always stayed true to his taste. He is absolutely one of the hardest working music diggers in the industry. His selecting skills are truly one of a kind and the combination of his knowledge and technique result into extremely explosive dj sets. Whether it's techno, wave, chicago or italo, he is able to blend it all together into one very consistent story. In fact, Mick is the definition of consistent. He will always give his 200% when it comes to music.
The same goes for his productions, he's been gradually releasing since 2001 (on labels like Tabernacle, Gigolo International, phil e and Minimal Rome). He'd rather release something of amazing quality, than having thirty singles out there that are mediocre. He is not the guy that you'll find on the cover of Mixmag and maybe it is for the better. Because one thing is certain, when it comes music, every choice Mick makes is carefully considered.

Mick Wills has just released a furious remix on Uncanny Valley's Rat Life records and he's also got an amazing new remix for Andreas Gehm's Elec pt. 1 project coming out on Signals. That one could hit the market anytime now.
For now, enjoy his deathmetaldiscoclub #050 anniversary DJ mix and don't forget to check out some of the links below!
