Download New Mixes from DJ Bone, Torn Hawk, and Solar
Three seasoned artists deliver podcasts for Resident Advisor, FACT, and Dekmantel.
First up is Detroit techno veteran Eric Dulan, operating under both his longstanding DJ Bone alias and a new alter-ego, Differ-Ent, which he debuts on his most recent record for Don’t Be Afraid. “I started with a straightforward but funky vibe (DJ Bone style), weaving in and out of melodies, keeping it danceable but with a lot of soul and emotion,” he explains. “Then I took it to a more aggressive, structured sound (Differ-Ent) with a darker essence. The majority of the last half of the mix is where I employ a lot of three-deck mixing.” His entry into Resident Advisor’s podcast series, along with a brief Q&A, is available here.
Next up is Torn Hawk, the arguably best-known alias of producer and video artist Luke Wyatt. His FACT mix is said to demonstrate “the same blurring of time, place, and source” as both his musical and visual output, seen most recently on his album Let’s Cry and Do Pushups at the Same Time on Mexican Summer. “These are all original sounds I created,” he says. “A small portion of the tracks compiled have been half-heard elsewhere. All material is now put to work supporting the larger story presented here.” The 67-minute session can be streamed and downloaded below.
Rounding out the trio is Solar, who provides the second installment of Dekmantel‘s new podcast series (last week’s was excerpted from Marcel Dettmann’s 2015 New Year’s set at Berghain). Based out of San Francisco and active as a house and techno DJ for over 15 years, Solar came to international attention last year, when Dixon caught a set of one of Solar’s West Coast Sunset Parties and invited him to tour with the Innervisions crew. No tracklist is on offer, but Solar’s nearly 70-minute session can be streamed and downloaded below.
