It’s friday and that means another sweet mix from our good friends over at Oki-ni. This week mix comes from techno dude Mr Statik – but fear not this mix is not a bag of plodding techno. It’s a trip down memory lane for Mr Statik and the tracks that made him the producer he is today.
Now signed to Berlin’s BPitch Control, the accomplished techno DJ and producer Mr. Statik has used this mix as an opportunity to unearth a load of music that he could never fit into his sets, but it’s the music that was the soundtrack to his youth, as he explains.
“Growing up in Volos, which is a small but pretty energetic city, in the early 90’s meant you had to make the best of it as far as “alternative music” was concerned and this mix pretty much sums that up; KLF first caught my eye, grunge was still a factor and early d’n’b was the main dance floor influence until techno swept in.
“If I had to point out stand out tracks they would definitely be KLF (which was THE main influence for me back then), Nin Ten Ichi Ryu from Photek, which I guess is the all-time favourite track of mine and “Mάγισσες” by Λένα Πλάτωνος, a greek artist who is still ahead of her time”.
