DHA FM Mix #434 by Ivan Smagghe

Ivan Smagghe belongs to a top table of DJs that journalists like to describe as “The DJ’s DJ”. Along with the likes of occasional partner-in-crime Andrew Weatherall, Ivan has the ability to play music like a raw conduit between his famously obscure records and the dancefloor’s strobe-soaked bodies, injecting something of himself seamlessly into the mix along the way. His genre-defying/defining production work originally in Black Strobe and now in It’s A Fine Line and Smagghe & Cross has connected him to and garnered the praise of (amongst others) James Murphy, Trevor Jackson, Ata, Optimo, and the aforementioned Weatherall.

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.
