Timewarp Rotterdam is back

Very few details so far but it's on the 12th December with Mr Vath, Loco and Karotte. Same venue as last year which i'm extremely happy about because Maassilo is possibly the most amazing venue i've ever been too. It's going to be one hell of a night.

Moderat - The Unofficial Remix Pack

Here's a new release from the brilliant Moderat (Modeselektor + Apparat). They've already had the official release of this but now it's time for the unofficial remix pack to hit our eardrums. Remixes of 'Rusty Nails' come from Shackleton and T++ while Headhunter serves up a version of 'A New Error'.

The Shackleton remix is an absolutely epic. Dark yet uplifting, earthy and euphoric. It completely blows the whole release away. The Headhunter and T++ tracks would be headliner status on any release had it not been from the Bristolians monumental efforts.

Cassy - Higher Frequency Mix Show (3rd Jul 09)

Here's a recent live mix from one of my favourite djs / producers at the moment, Cassy. I saw her twice last month (Secretsundaze @ Village Underground, London & Cocoon 2 @ Kanna Beach Club, Barcelona) and her deep chugging Berghain techno sound really did the job.

This was recorded for the Higher Frequency Mix Show last weekend (3rd July) Download the sets from the following links

Full Line Up

Lawrence - Resident Advisor Podcast 161 (29th June 09)

Hamburg's king of vinyl houses it up in a deliciously deep style on this week's RA podcast.

Despite his inauspicious beginnings as a gardener, Peter Kersten has spent the last decade becoming one of the main players on Hamburg's music scene. In that time he's notched up 12-inches for some of the world's most popular electronic labels—Kompakt, Mule Electronic, Ghostly International, Ladomat 2000, Sender, Spectral Sound and Smallville just to name a few. From wistfully romantic electronica to bumping deep house, Kersten's musical gamut runs far and wide throughout the sphere of electronic music, but his sound is a distinctive and recognisable one. Taking the ingredients of classic Chicago and Detroit productions, softening the edges and applying his trademark melodic sheen, Kersten's finished products often get you grooving whilst tugging those heartstrings.

It isn't just his productions that have elevated him to the status he currently enjoys, though. Kersten is one-third of the team that has helped to launch the careers of Efdemin, Pantha Du Prince and John Roberts via the Dial imprint, which managed to grab RA's label of the year accolade back in 2007 after a run of essential releases. For Kersten, selling vinyl is a serious business, and he's just helped to start Laid, Dial's vinyl-only sub-label, with a 12-inch from US deep house legend Rick Wade. Hamburg residents can even find him behind the counter at the city's Smallville record store, which he co-owns with Smallville Records owner Julius Steinhoff. Vinyl is also Peter's medium of choice when it comes to DJing, and for this week's RA podcast he's taken to his Technics to supply us with a selection of deep and grooving house cuts with a big Detroit influence. We caught up with Kersten by e-mail to ask him about the mix, the Dial residency at Panorama Bar and his Smallville record store.
