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

Premiere: Johannes Albert – Hooligan [Frank Music]

Lichtenberg, the name of a district in East Berlin and Johannes Albert’s second LP, hints of EBM & New Wave crossing state-of-the-art house rhythms. Seeing the producer heading down a whole different path, Albert’s ten-piece music on ‘Lichtenberg’ surely has made the transition to more misty material. Sing-along synthesizer melodies however still play an important role.  The album embodies genre fluid styles that depict the motions of the Kiez. Ambient structures over New Wave rhythms via EBM to current rave revivals blend a sense of multidisciplinary art into one medium. After the welcoming vibes of  ‘Phony Emotions’, we wander into ...

With his fifth release on Into The Woods Recordings, Maheras delivers “Tartessos,” a nod to his Greek roots and enigmatic journey into minimal dancefloor dub while growing up on the streets of Brooklyn. The original, today’s premiere, is hypnotic with a deep percussive pulse and harmonic delays that spiral across a four to the floor bass line and kick pattern.
