Bassiani Podcast Copy

‘Herrensauna stalwart MCMLXXXV joins us for Bassiani Podcast #74. Tribal sounds, foreboding bleeps, robotic vocal samples and a hint of electroclash nostalgia define the hour and provide a hypnotic soundtrack for dancing youth.’

‘Haruka’s patient and exploratory approach to sound sets him apart as one of the finest Tokyo DJs currently on offer. For Bassiani Podcast #75 he deftly mixes droning, reverb-heavy, stamina-fuelled techno for two and a half hours of intelligent play.’

‘If the memory of marathon warehouse nights feels a little distant, Bassiani Podcast #76 might be just what you were looking for. This instalment is a seamless dose of bouncy, transcendent rave brought to you by Spielraum resident and rising Dutch star Ki/Ki.’

‘Initial Berlin label boss Julian Muller charts a steady course through sombre urban panoramas, breaks and 90s hardcore for Bassiani Podcast #77. The vinyl-loving DJ provides a fresh take on blockbuster genres in this hour of frenetic peak-time beats.’

‘Move to the beat of Cashu’s marching drum with Bassiani Podcast #78. Back in São Paulo, her politically flavoured gatherings have been gathering momentum and the influence shows. Riffing on Brazilian rhythms and spooky synths, Carolina Schutzer’s sound is the soundtrack for a new age.’

‘The third in a triptychon of mixes by Resom is a nod to her times at the club. In her own words dedicated to freedom and the wish to ‘travel freely’ in her own space. Bassiani Podcast #79 is a meditative work that begins in chaos and ends in escape.’

‘Unlike so many of his peers, Northern Electronics founder Anthony Linell is no flashy DJ. His MO is subtle: let the techno do the talking. Bassiani Podcast #80 sits somewhere between mysterious assembly line and dystopian anthem. Slick and unrelenting.’

‘Bassiani resident Kvanchi starts the next in our mix series with a Blade Runner sample and a track that sounds like the beating of a replicant heart. An hour long score of dubby rhythms and immersive sounds to feed your sci-fi fantasies.’

‘Far from the dancefloor, Helena Hauff’s soaring techno remains strikingly physical. Industrial/EBM references lend her sets a sport-like flair and her audiences usually follow the cue. #82 is a sweaty, fast-tempo addition to the Bassiani mix roster.’

‘Fast Forward residents and Endurance and Mala Junta creators Ezy and DJ TOOL deliver an 80 minute mix of growling, percussive yet ambient sounds for Bassiani #83. This is a high-speed trip through Danish techno spanning 1997 to present recorded at BunkerBauer Studios in Copenhagen.’
