OUT NOW: Live At De School Club Versions
After releasing Oceanic’s 2017 live recording at the end of 2018, De School’s home imprint De Nieuw returns with four club-ready interpretations of Oceanic’s concert on modular synths and strings. First up is Oceanic’s take on his live recording, turned into the perfect fit for his halftime DJ-sets and a much-asked track ID. This track found its way to De School regulars upsammy and Pariah who have each created their own version.
Both are basement ready: a dub-inspired trip from Pariah’s side while upsammy performed her melodic magic on the string hook of the original. Closing off is Oceanic’s Beat Tool: a stripped-down drum workout that focusses on the percussion, the strings still echoing in the background. Together these tracks represent different visions of the original, both suitable for clubs in the future and home play today.
Kia contributes to Maricas' mix series over at Crack Magazine
The latest set curated by the Catalonian femme & queer collective Maricas reaches further from home, bringing Melbourne’s Kia into the fold.
The Animalia boss has a penchant for the lush, deeper end of techno and in this mix, Kia blends that trademark sound with thumps of bass and corkscrewing percussion.
RA Podcast 728: Valesuchi
The tracks on Valesuchi's RA podcast primarily come from Latin American and black artists. She says her aim for the mix is to "bring some kind of sonic and aesthetic justice to a moment in which these lives and its expressions still seem to matter less than others to the pretty unfair system that rules us all." The hour-long session offers a glimpse into the variety found in her sets, traversing dirty electro, leftfield techno and hazy house, while making brief excursions into ballroom and dub. There's even a nod to her Cómeme history with her only release on the label, "Black Jesus." Some sections may arrive hard and swinging, but there's an overall tropical air that tie this mix together.
