Mavrik Mix #35 – Alex T

5 January

One of the team behind the Leeds-based On Rotation, Alex has an encyclopedic knowledge of all things house & techno. He's delivered a cracking mix that works its way up to an unrelenting tempo, perhaps one of the most floor-oriented mixes we've had - cheers Alex! Tracklist can be found…

5 Tracks – Jay L

3 August

Jay L shares five of his favourite tracks with us ahead of his set at Varkala Festival in just over a weeks time (12th-15th August). Amid some seriously good releases on the vinyl-only brstl imprint, Jay is first and foremost a DJ of the highest order. Imagine our excitement then, to take a peek…

Review: Konstantin Sibold – Mutter

27 April

I remember the last time I saw Konstantin Sibold. We were in the smoking area of Oval Space, the night before he was set to play at neighbouring Pickle Factory. “I remember you like techno”, he said, pulling out his phone: “listen to this.” As the song played from his…

Mavrik Mix #28 – MLiR

Mavrik Mix #23 – Laurence H

13 December

After a lengthy mix series break, we are back with an hour of deep, techy selection from Laurence H. As well as being one of the On Rotation residents, Laurence recently played at London's Basic Party and recorded shows for Radio Tilos in Budapest. Despite being only 20, Laurence's taste,…

Review: Percolate w/ Tom Trago, Joey Negro & Midland

20 July

In last week's heatwave, you'd be forgiven for forgetting that British Summer is an unpredictable force, but bursts of chaotic rain, and an overcast skyline reminded us of its unpredictability as Percolate and Mad Ferret’s ‘City Solstice’ celebration took place in Hackney’s Shapes. However, it’d be uncharacteristic to let something as trivial as…
