DANIEL AVERY (Phantasy , UK)
It is this thinking which motivated and inspired the making of Daniel Avery’s entry into the treasured DJ-Kicks series. Across its 78 minutes the mix creates a hypnotic space focusing on “music by some like-minded souls” from the outer reaches of techno. It is a mix concerned with the idea of taking a collective breath and allowing records their own space. “The music that always hits hardest is what I’d consider to be unreal, something that sounds like it comes from another place entirely and moves at its own pace. I want to create those moments where opening your eyes on a dance floor becomes difficult. When the outside world is nothing more than a distant thought.”
MARGARET DYGAS (Ostgut Ton , GER)
With her broad musical background fuelling her desire for electronic experimentation within her music, her productions and dj-sets incorporate the deep and dub-influenced sound she loves, whilst retaining the driving funk of her musical past.
While a bi-monthly residence at Berlin’s Panorama Bar and weekly travels around the globe is keeping her busy, Margaret always makes sure to fit in some down-time with her two cats, a nice jazz record and a cup of warm milk.
