2016 has been quite the year for music. We’ve seen a lot of new producers capture our ears as well as continuous bangers from well known artists. So much music has surfaced that it’s almost hard to keep up with, but, The Aston Shuffle, residents of The Magician’s label, Potion, has made finding some of the best music of 2016 a little easier. While hosting the #1 weekend show on Australia’s ubiquitous Triple J channel, The Aston Shuffle has launched their own mix series called ‘Only 100s’ to showcase their top picks each month from on-air, in clubs, and the road and they’ve hit the nail on the head. The mix features music from Weiss to Karma Kid and even the Magician himself and includes something for everyone’s tastes. “It dawned on us recently just how much music we filter through every week for radio or our sets…it’s insane. Over time as a DJ you develop your own habits to streamline your workflow, and awhile ago we started our own shared Dropbox folder titled ‘100s’ to shortlist our best of the best, our go-to weapons to prep for our live sets. That’s when it hit us – we need to be sharing this list with the world! ‘Only 100s’ was born.” – The Aston Shuffle The Mix is available for free download here.
Asides from being the birthplace of Kompakt, Cologne has long been a staple exporter of fine German techno. Andhim have with time become one of its more globally palatable exports, donning a quirky and instrumentally refined stance on the sound that has not only made them highly bookable, but easily imitable across the European front. Returning to the fold with the befittingly titled ‘German Winter’ from their impending Tosch EP, the pair mirror their hometown’s Gothic facade with a symphony of swelling organs and glitchy lead work. Never too boisterous or heavy footed, their studio work is proof to the multiple textures and dynamics available to the genre outside of the mainroom handiwork more commonly associated with the European techno sound. No one really likes the winter, but Adhim’s latest is a warming experience from start to finish.Read More:Techno Tuesday: Andhim on growing up in Cologne and the rise of the US undergroundDA Premiere: Andhim – Boy Boy Boy (Joris Voorn Remix)
