Boiler Room sets from Soulmind, Sarah Farina & Through My Speakers Crew

Been waiting for these to get uploaded!

I first discovered Berlin’s Through My Speakers crew via the yung goddess Sarah Farina. I was pretty dang pleased when they got their own Boiler Room showcase last month (I’m guessing their excellent summer compilation NURNED.01 had something to do with it).

Only then did I realize that one of the members of TMS, Soulmind, was the same Soulmind who made one of the most beautiful, moving mixes of bass music I’ve ever heard (Over Distant Mountains: A Year In Bass Music). I posted rather effusively about it back when it dropped but hadn’t heard much from dude since then. I guess he was busy linking up with my future favorite DJs.

It’s completely unsurprising then that Soulmind’s BR set was fantastic. Impeccable mixing and selection, climaxing with the teklife classic All I do is (smoke trees) into a completely facemelting juke edit of DJ Shadow’s masterpiece Midnight in a Perfect World. Extra special s/o to whoever was doing the video mix right then; the shot of the setting sun over Berlin’s skyline was a really nice touch.

While all the sets were great, I was also particularly moved by Le Feu’s set. She goes so goddamned hard, clearly giving no fucks that the sun is way out:

And also Sarah Farina’s second, and hopefully not last set on BRTV. Switching it up from her last set which was mostly 160, here she has a ton of fun mashing things up in the 130 range:

Finally just wanted to give one more a s/o to another TMS member, She’s Drunk. His tune Pull Up is a dancefloor weapon in the vein of Pearson Sound’s Blanked or Tessela’s immortal Hackney Parrot. It’s also a free DL from mixmag so go grab dat.

For more goodness from Berlin’s Through My Speakers crew make sure to follow them on Soundcloud!

Rone Live in the Boiler Room, see him at Glasslands April 3rd

Thrilled to have just added a new date to the calendar for Rone, the French electronica maester. He’ll be appearing at Glasslands Thursday, April 3rd. Rone’s music resembles Jon Hopkins – textured, spacey electronica that straddles house and techno – but the mood is closer to the bouncey, neon optimism of Lone’s recent singles.

Hopefully he’ll be playing a live set, like he did in this amazing 40 minutes he turned out for a the recent Nuits Sonores takeover of the Boiler Room.  Tracklist courtesy of  1001 Tracklists, which is a ridiculous rabbit hole for any DJ.

05min Rone – Flesh
10min Rone – Let’s Go (Wild Edit)

FRIDAY, MARCH 22 Hiatus Kaiyote at LPR [7:30PM/$10] I don’t usually list bands here, but Hiatus Kaiyote is just SO GOOD. Hailing from Melbourne, they’re “future soul” which apparently means jazz chords, tasteful electronics, goosebump-inducing vocals – if you like love Bonobo or Little Dragon, you’re already sold. If you still need convincing, listen to
