Straight up raw gear this week as Perseus Traxx lays down a sonic assault of analogue box jams and Chicago jack-trax with a touch of soul. A prolific producer with a string of releases on Chiwax, Snuff Trax and MOS amongst others, his live shows incorporating his machines add an exciting dynamic to dance-floors the world over. Look out for recent EP’s on Titanic City and Flight Recorder.

Leftfield sounds from Tel-Aviv via Berlin this week. Naduve & Katzele are part of 84% Creativity; an Isreali collective of artists, DJs and promoters. Together they have just released one of the EP’s of the year on Rothmans with the ‘Paolo Rossi EP'; the lead track ‘Miracles From Edrine’ can be heard here with it’s creeping, atmospheric Arabic feel weaving it’s way through a spacey, out there electronic selection.

An OOFT DJ mix is always a delight so it’s with great pleasure we welcome Ali Herron to our podcast series this time around. Ali is responsible for turning out high quality house and modern disco cuts through his excellent FOTO imprint. His Sade rework is already one of our favourite tracks of the year and selling fast; the next FOTO release sees DJ Steef make his bow in May with the lead track ‘Shaking’ included here. Glasgow followers should most certainly head to the Berkeley Suite this Saturday April 18th where OOFT takes to the decks with the sublime and inimitable Tornado Wallace

Bucharest based producers/ remixers/ DJs, the Gemini Brothers describe 2014 as their “remix year”. Tronik Youth, Shindu & Future Bones amongst others on the list of artists getting their trade mark, slo-mo, dirty arpeggiated dark disco mixes.
2015 is more about original tracks with releases already scheduled at least from May to September. We’ve got an EP on Duncan Grays Tici Taci imprint to look forward to in May, with remixes from Somerville & Wilson as well as a Tici Taci version. Then there’s another EP in June on the fantastic Nein Records featuring remixes from In Flagranti, Daniel Kyo (Poker Flat), Lokier and Teniente Castillo. There’s also stuff coming on new french label called Mange Moi and Sheffield based Itchy Pig. Combined with more remixes still to drop, it’s looking like we’ll be hearing a lot more from Gemini Brothers this year.
If you’d like to catch them live they DJ at the Pre Party & the Nein Records Igloo @ Alfresco Festival in Blackpool – May 23rd & 24th. There’s further UK dates in Newcastle & Birmingham in June. As well as gigs lined up Prague, Amsterdam, Berlin, Madrid or Cordoba.

We caught Peza soundtracking a beautifully sunny Saturday afternoon last September at the fantastic Festival No.6 and ever since then he’s been on our hit list for a mix. Of course, we were already well aware of his super-cool edits on Authodiscotheque and A&R. If you’ve not heard his Human League re-interpretation; you simply aint dancing in the right places. Look out for a forthcoming remix of Tronik Youth’s ‘Splinter of the Mind’s Eye’ on Nein, and his next single ‘Mekon’ on Peter Herbert’s Maxi Discs. Scottish folk could do worse than head to the Reading Rooms in Dundee on March 27th where Peza plays with Dicky Trisco and ALFOS. His mix for us is a beauty; very much the sound of where underground dance music is at in 2015 as far as we’re concerned. Lock yourself in, Peza is at the controls…

Completing his third instalment for us we welcome back George Thompson in his Black Merlin guise. George’s mixes are always some of our most well received and this one should be no different. Quite unlike most other things you’ll hear; which is of course our mission to bring you interesting sounds from way out there. Black Merlin will shortly be releasing an as of yet untitled album via the Indonesian record label, Island of the Gods. Which George recorded in Indonesia featuring Gamelan music and atmospheric recordings of his experiences there.
