After a brief hiatus, URB is back with its podcast series and quickly stepping into the twilight zone with an exclusive mix from 50 Weapons’ experimental auteur Anstam. Releasing his tunes almost exclusively on the label for the past few years, Lar Stoewe has kept Anstam a project that has bent and broken the rules of predictable electronic music, sometimes stretching conceptual pieces into a dance frenzy that’s submerged in unresolved territory. That conceptual madness is what makes Anstam a perfect choice to contribute to our podcast series after our mini-hiatus. Back into the abyss we venture towards, with a twist. Anstam has given us a tracklist, in alphabetical order. It’s up to our ears to figure what’s played from first to last. So listen well and lose yourself to this epic mix.
This week’s podcast comes from Munich dance wunderkind SCNTST; a burgeoning producer that has only just begun in stampeding the electronic underground. Gaining notice through his tracks on Boys Noize Records, SCNTST has shaped a unique production sensibility into parts previously unknown to his listeners, as evident within this mix.
This week’s podcast is from the Canadian-based Iron Galaxy; a man who’s built up a sterling reputation with his releases so far; debuting on the ever-impressive Audio Culture label from Amsterdam and releasing his latest EP “Things We Lost Along The Way” on living legend James Zabiela’s Born Electric imprint, you could say things are on the up-and-up for the vibesman from the Great White North. With our ears and eyes on Iron Galaxy for the past year, URB was keen on getting him to contribute a mix that captured the essence of his fluid and varied production style, and boy did he ever deliver with some style. Check out his stunning mix, with the track list down below.
He’s your prototypical genre-hopping producer, radio host and badman; the man we affectionally refer to as Mosca. The UK dance-stalwart has been making some of the most memorable records in the last few years; traversing the tail-end of the bass music craze and settling into house vibes with his previous releases on 3024 and Hypercolour.This time around, however, shows off Mosca’s techno flex; as he preps a three-track release on Delsin sister label Ann Aimee, as “A Thousand Year’s Wait” will surely test the waters of the techno faithful and procure interest from his burgeoning fanbase into exploring new territories. Thankfully, Mosca does that very same thing every time he drops a mix, and that’s exactly what we were looking for when we asked him to contribute with a special URB podcast. Melding the line between house and techno perfectly, Mosca creates fun vibes within a realm that’s serious about their sound, bringing levity within the confines of techno-tinged cloudiness. Without further ado, we present this stunner of a mix, track list and link to his show at NYC’s Output this week, down below.
The revival of Marc Kinchen began with the awareness that the man behind every dub you dance to at night was still around and had a legacy that needed to be put on display. Enter his House Masters compilation on Defected Records, where fans of the past clamored to gems released into the digital realm and new fans experienced the power of an insatiable MK shuffle.Kinchen took notice of this renewed attention and got his second wind; starting to DJ more frequently and sharing his vibes worldwide with warm and welcoming crowds. And from his new home base in Los Angeles, dude is making remixes and dubs that make you feel damn good without even trying. That’s why we are more than thrilled that the man, myth and legend is contributing to this special podcast as part of Mixcloud’s Celebration Of Curation. Get ready to move courtesy of MK.
