This week’s mix comes from Krakow’s very own Olivia – one of the DJs from the Chrono Bross and Radar collectives as well as being an Unsound Festival favourite.
Unsound has made Krakow the crown jewel of an experience that only adds to walking, driving, taking a tram to seeing someone like Senyawa spook their audience to their very core, or seeing Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein bring out one’s inner-child when they played their works from Netflix’s Stranger Things.
Appropriation Stories is one of the top Shifted works to date – providing everything fans and new listeners could want out of a techno album, while not trying to vacillate between the dancefloor and a headphone listen. It has terrific balance, exudes confidence and packs a mean punch with silk sheets surrounding it.
Following his release on Dekmantel’s UFO division and ahead of his appearance at Field Maneuvers, Randomer talks up his unique perspective – “I make music randomly without any pre-planning or sound in mind and within a few months I inadvertently find ways to pair them up – sort of like pieces to a puzzle”
To say this release is enigmatic would be saying too little; it’s pretty much what The Zenker Brothers are describing it as: “exotic pungent basement rebellion.” We couldn’t agree more, fellas. Check out Roger 23 “L o w Reshape” – our pick from this release as a perfect preview as to what awaits you.
