Erratic Podcast 128 | Hydrangea  

Next up on The Erratic Podcast we are very excited to welcome aboard another extremely talented, young artist, this time coming straight from France, HYDRANGEA. She specializes on the deeper, more emotive side of techno and with every one of her works she delivers truly stunning pieces of electronic music. Much like the name describes itself, Hydrangea's sound is based on nature and the organic emotions it inspires on her – hiding at the core doses of both enchanting and intoxicating sonics. Thus far in her tenure as an artist, she's managed to release among the best labels catering to this unique and enthralling sound: Silent Season, Annulled, Natch, and Dust Recordings all of which have received outstanding reception and feedback. In 2015, her debut LP "Dawn Lights" came to fruition, followed a few months later by her self-released LP "Escape From Reality" – an extremely personal and heartfelt tribute to the passing of her sister – via her own Bandcamp page. As you will soon hear throughout the next 50 minutes of utterly captivating soundscapes, Hydrangea has a bright future ahead (including several projects to see the light of day shortly), and she feels right at home when expounding her complex palette of etherial emotions. Ladies and gentlemen, this is Hydrangea in the mix.

Having released on Monasterio's debut release from Moscow and now co-running Count 0 alongside Ctrls and Funeral Future out of Copenhagen, Anastasia is definitely a tour de force that's only getting started. Her eclecticism in musical taste is wide-reaching and encompassing, and is always elegantly manifested in all of her techno journeys, be it inside the club playing live feeding off the energy from the crowd or in the studio mixing, producing borrowing from her knowledge on electronic music amassed during her teenage years. For us, she put together a smashing hour of top-notch techno, full of superb and unreleased cuts that will surely keep your heart-rate in check. Coming up for Anastasia on the production front, is a remix on BLD Tape due next month and an original work for the Black V/A series on Nous Disques due in October.

Erratic Podcast 119 | Chanski  

Our next podcast episode comes from an artist who is no stranger to the Erratic series and is a good friend of ours, CHANSKI. He's been featured several times before (last one being 2 years ago), and for this occasion he has graciously submitted the recording from his latest DJ set - an event that took place in our own home turf of Brooklyn, hosted by the Aphotic crew, with Claudio PRC as the main headliner. Tim has been very busy in the studio lately playing with different sounds and gear, carving and finessing his own way. His latest endeavor is a fantastic extended EP, titled "Music For The Ancient", where a few of his tracks are peppered throughout this mix. Needless to say, we were there in that dark Brooklyn warehouse when this show went down and his entire set was as per usual... smooth and beautiful. We are very glad to once again host Tim on the Erratic Podcast, so without further ado, this is Chanski live in the mix!

Enjoy! ;) www.facebook.com/UnderTheBlackHelmet www.codeislaw.bandcamp.com/album/mute www.residentadvisor.net/dj/underblackhelmet www.discogs.com/es/label/504595-Code-Is-Law - Erratic is comprised of a small team of passionate curators hosting proper Techno parties in New York City. www.ErraticNYC.com | www.fb.com/ErraticNYC

Erratic Podcast 117 | Regal  

For Erratic Podcast 117 we welcome a very special guest and an absolutely tremendous artist and deejay, REGAL. Originally from Italy but living in Madrid for very long, in a matter of a few years he's managed to plant himself among the top techno producers, attracting the attention of and being welcomed under the wing and labels of some of the most established and pivotal names in the industry – Dustin Zahn, Len Faki, and Nina Kraviz to name a few. He is also the founder of his own imprint, Involve Records, which just released its 10th installment by the man himself, Salie EP, exploring a lighter yet equally substantial in sound and aesthetics as those which he is known for: raw and driving, acid-filled machine-work techno. Following this fashion, his exclusive mix for us is a combination of all these eclectic sounds. The result? A truly delightful journey evoking in the listener a juxtaposed sense of sheer, dance-floor emotion with intrinsic, visceral electronics. No doubt this one is a doozy folks: Regal in the mix. Please Enjoy! www.involverecords.es www.facebook.com/RegalOfficial www.involve-records.bandcamp.com - Erratic is comprised of a small team of passionate curators hosting proper Techno parties in New York City. www.ErraticNYC.com | www.fb.com/ErraticNYC

Erratic Podcast 116 | Joachim Spieth  

Next in the series we welcome Affin's label boss and founder, JOACHIM SPIETH. We've had the chance to munch on this mix for a bit and with every listen it got deeper and deeper under the skin. We are very excited to finally be able to share it with all of you. Without a doubt, this next hour of delicate and delightful music Joachim submitted for us is no less than a piece of art – regaling the audience with each listen a new adventure, revealing new feelings, delivering new textures. The journey is one of the most unique we've received and you will hear why; we hope you enjoy it as much as we did. As Joachim's biography rightly says, "what [he] does not put into words, is translated into sounds." Please enjoy this, folks! www.joachimspieth.de www.affin.bandcamp.com www.facebook.com/JoachimSpiethAffin www.residentadvisor.net/dj/joachimspieth www.discogs.com/artist/4251-Joachim-Spieth - Erratic is comprised of a small team of passionate curators hosting proper Techno parties in New York City. www.ErraticNYC.com | www.fb.com/ErraticNYC

Erratic Podcast 115 | Anetha  

Smoke, strobes, darkness, bone-chilling coldness, and pulsating bass: Our next guest's style is no doubt the epitome of what it means to experience the sheer power of the raw and raging, ebullient techno genre. ANETHA is a fantastic dj who caught our attention not too long ago and ever since then we've been very eager in awarding her the spotlight on our podcast series. A resident of Blocaus in Paris, she's made quite a name for herself recently, both on the deejaying and production fronts. Her debut EP "Ophiucus" came out last year on Work Them Records, receiving massive accolades and quickly becoming sold out. Much like her dj sets, her production style is characterized by the raw and vibrant, ravey warehouse feel that is filled with so much energy and tension; and the result of each one of her works is supremely elevating. Blending the old-school with the avant-garde, her music is truly evoking and transports the listener to the times every music lover (and dancer), has had on the dancefloor -- where dreams and reality become one -- and after that moment's passed, one cannot but dwell and yearn for reliving it once more. Anetha's set for us does just that -- sequesters you on a journey through the deepest and rawest corners of your mind and soul... all while cursing the richest and oldest of techno catalogs. Ladies and gentlemen, this is Anetha in the mix. Please Enjoy! www.facebook.com/Anetha-395580317184152 www.residentadvisor.net/dj/anetha www.facebook.com/Blocausparis - Erratic is comprised of a small team of passionate curators hosting proper Techno parties in New York City. www.ErraticNYC.com | www.fb.com/ErraticNYC
