Ahead of our first residency night at Zur Klappe on 10 August in Berlin, we caught up with Gramrcy to find out more about his life current in Berlin and the Peach Discs imprint he co-runs with Shanti Celeste. We also cast our eyes back to his musical beginnings and the moments that have helped shape his genre-busting musical path.
With Ewan Jansen’s latest number freshly out on Jimpster’s Freerange Records, this felt like the perfect occasion to ask Ewan for a mix. Used to performing live exclusively, he opted for a distinct way of doing it: Ewan selected a solid batch of cuts – including a lot of unheard gems from his vaults, for Jimpster to pick from and smoothly weave together. Pull out the shades, beach towel and sunscreen, summer vibes are on.
Electronica-infused modular techno rubbing off onto post-industrial ambient upholstery, Ravitz’s music is essentially alien and intrepidly unpigeonholeable to the bone. Patrica steps up to provide an ultra rare live recording taken from his performance at the debut edition of Bucharest’s Automata Festival – a masterclass of ultra-sensory techno grooves and playful hardware juggling.
Jensen Interceptor and UK electro maestro Sync 24 team up to provide us with a special all-acid mix drinking to the timeless source of inspiration that is Roland’s 1982-born bass synth, aka the legendary TB-303. Buckle up and get ready for an insane ride, this one’s going to pin you to the seat from start to finish.
Chafik Chennouf heads up the uncompromising Leyla Records and straddles the increasingly familiar verticals of DJ, producer and label owner. An approach that we could all learn from in 2019. Of course, music paints a million words, so we took the opportunity to draft in Chafik to provide a mix to showcase his sound and share a rare selection of words.
