DHA FM Mix #431 by Stump Valley

“Pretty mysterious but that’s not the appeal. Super diverse stylistically, but that’s not it either! – indeed you’ll uncover little about Stump Valley using the well-worn tool of the internet, but what you do after hearing all of their tracks on the dancefloor, is chilling out and listen to them again.” Jordan Czamanski from Juju & Jordash Raised from the ashes of an old project, Stump Valley is a little village in the countryside, where deers and boars run free in the street. That’s the place where most of Stump Valley ‘s music was made. Stump Valley: “After years of djing and ... Read more

Always adding bits to his studio setup, conveniently situated in the building that also houses De School, his sound is constantly evolving. He takes inspiration from a wide range of music new and old, proof of which you can ... Read more

Sharif Laffrey is something of an unheralded hero of the underground Detroit scene. Active since the halcyon days of the mid-90s Motor City rave movement, his sporadic releases are rarely less than superb. His tension building, groove-driven, and percussion-heavy productions are unmatched if you ask us. Sharif Laffrey has been playing records and making music for over 20 years.

DHA FM Mix #428 By DJ Normal 4

DJ Normal 4, founding member and co-creator of ‘Aiwo rec.‘ was raised close to Düsseldorf in the Ruhr Area. A former strong and lively industrial conglomerate city, now a bygone and dead epicenter of German heavy Industry. Full of dusty factory skeletons and abandoned industrial complexes. Rave fantasies and being surrounded by this reality of geometric shadows, harsh skylines and lost dreams gave birth to his sound. One foot in the fields of the glorious summer of ‘92′ and one in the ‘no future 4 ever‘ sounds emanating from Düsseldorf via Amsterdam to London, Lyon to The Hague today. With ... Read more

DHA FM Mix #425 By Honey Soundsystem

Honey Soundsystem is a San Francisco based collective of three; Jacob Sperber, Jason Kendig, and Robert Yang. They came together inspired by pivotal gay underground parties and dance music history, which offered a take on dance music in direct opposition to what was blaring on mainstream club speakers.

The boys dedicate their time and passion into archivist work, which resulted in unearthing the lost gay ... Read more

DHA FM Mix #424 By Philipp Gorbachev

DHA FM Mix #423 By Ata

How exactly Ata manages to fascinate when stoically spinning records for hours on end, mixing emotion and intention, guiding the crowd, is his secret. We may assume it is experience. And experienced he is in nearly all fields related to clubbing: as graphic artist, fashion designer, DJ, label manager and impressario. It all started rather humbly when he, still a boy, shared house with a GI who owned a vast collection of Kraftwerk, early Hip Hop and black dance music and who substantially widened his musical horizon. Frankfurt soon witnessed the fruits of that neighbourly education when Ata carried a ... Read more

With a wide range of music from all over the globe, he has a knack for finding the sweet spot in every set.
