DHA Mix #351 By Panthera Krause

Panthera Krause is a Producer, DJ and illustrator from Leipzig. His productions flow between uplifting-chords, meandering arpeggiators and melancholic scapes all framed in Housy, MPC-ruled beats, cut-throat samples and a fresh breeze of dirt. Socialized by the eclectic sound of Kasablanca, Panthera started his musical career with his band Marbert Rocel in 2007, but was in 2012 when he released his first solo productions on Lobster Theremin. He recorded DJ sets for NTS Radio, Groove and Gilles Peterson and played his live shows and DJ sets from Panoramabar to Corsica Studios and from Le Batofar to IFZ. This expereincs of ... Read more

DHA Mix #258 By Eliphino

Leeds born and London based, Eliphino’s productions incorporate elements a few different genres but always maintain an emphasis on the emotive soul aspects of the music.

New Amsterdam Club Opens In Former Studio 80 Space

With the shuttering of Studio 80’s doors in the latter months of 2015, Amsterdam lost one of its most valuable underground nightspots. Now, it has been announced that the former Studio 80 space will launch a new club, Claire, will open this October, bringing the likes of Chez Damier, Gilles Peterson and Matthew Herbert to Amsterdam’s Rembrandtplein over the coming months.

Gilles Peterson has described Sun Ra & His Solar Orchestra’s “Secrets Of The Sun” as “the ultimate artist for any vinyl collector”. Now, the super rare vinyl has found its way to eBay, with, what may be the only one in existence, a colored edition (the standard black vinyl edition sold on Discogs £800) with the starting bid of $499. “Secrets of the Sun” was recorded in New York in 1962 and features six tracks, from dreamy space jazz to the avant garde. The Lp was released, however, in 1965 via Ra’s El Saturn Records, with this orange pressing widely ... Read more

When The Strange Sounds From Beyond Take Over…

June 26 saw the Strange Sounds From Beyond emitted via three stages in Amsterdam’s Noordlicht. The likes of Young Marco, Gilles Peterson, Omar Souleyman, Antal, Ata Kak, and more brought intelligent dance music of all descriptions on a day the dance music establishment (Awakenings) otherwise would have monopolized. Instead, some 3,000 (or so) of the city’s most eclectic party animals danced the day away to the sounds of Syria, Africa, Greece, USA, and way more in a veritable orgy of world sounds.

A New Amsterdam Festival Exploring Strange Sounds From Beyond

Underground dance music fans in Amsterdam cannot complain when it comes to both, the amount and the quality, of local festivals. Starting with DGTL in spring, almost every following summer weekend, Amsterdam hosts the world’s top underground dance music acts (including world class local artists), presented via a flawless dutch organisational efforts of Dekmantel, Awakenings, Straf Werk, Pleinvrees, Pitch and so on. However, over the course of Amsterdam’s festival season, a lack of the unexpected musical journey, a fuller diversity of electronic sound can nevertheless be felt.  Don’t get me wrong, there is no denial that these festivals always deliver a top notch standard in every aspect – both party and ...

Premiere: Fango – Rectum (Original Mix)

Obsessed with mixing bass drums, recording percussion, and sampled instruments, Italian producer Fango strives to be a virtuous perfectionist on any production within his reach. Fango’s newest EP has already received strong report, in which it was already spun by Gilles Peterson via his weekly Worldwide show on BBC, supported by French legend Laurent Garnier as well as Dixon, Mano Le Tough and Jackmaster. His approach to creating the EP has been regarded as an “a long insular trip”, where he reflects “down into the depths of his own soul”.

Mix #209 By Adesse Versions

Starting out as a simple re-edit series, Adesse Versions aka Kevin Gorman has reformulated his humble ambitions into a few white label releases. Adopting a typical cut and paste ethos to house music, Adesse Versions curates a theme that exemplifies roughness and raw emotion. Known for his production of tracks such as Baayi, Pressured and Modall, his music has found its way into the hands of icons such as Derrick May, Larry Heard and Gilles Peterson. Major record companies have also taken notice, resulting in a remix of Henry Krinkle for Sony. Along with his deep root in house-oriented work, he runs as a former ... Read more

Exclusive Interview With Maribou State

With a sound as quintessentially British as the picturesque Hertfordshire village that they call home, Chris Davids and Liam Ivory aka Maribou State have steadily built a glowing international reputation via a string of well-loved EPs and a fistful of remixes (including Kelis, Lana del Ray, Ultraísta).  Well-versed in the art of balance, the duo have been quietly yet mightily refining their touch in recent years, delivering a string of releases (including the much loved Tongue and Truths EPs ) crafted through an incredible studio ethic at their rural bolt-hole “The Shack in the Back”. Far from your typical laptop-reliant producers; ... Read more

Free Download: Summertime (KON Disco Edit)

Soul Clap describe him as the “best disco DJ in the world.” Gilles Peterson called him the “edit king of 2011.” And BBE has crowned him the “king of digging.” His re-works of classic disco tunes are some of the most inventive around. KON has access to some of the most sought-after recording sessions of all time that allow him to pull apart the musical parts and re-imagine them to his own liking. Despite his association with disco, Kon’s purview is much broader than a single genre. He’s been a mainstay of Boston’s hip-hop scene since the early ’90s, and ... Read more
