3) Bennet for Nexus #61 // Radio // LIVE on Techno.fm - 11.9.2021

Sun, 12 Sep 2021 10:42:00 +0000
This month we’re delighted to welcome Bennet from the awesome Soft Spot crew in Hanover, DE - with a stunning all-vinyl set for your listening pleasure. Nexus residents Arondeus and Loss Function rounded out the last 2 hours of the show with a recording of 2 hours of their 4-hour set from a couple of years ago over in Stockholm at the fantastic Dark Unicorn Social Club (available on a separate show). Fingers crossed we can safely play abroad again soon… TRACKLIST IN COMMENTS >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Bennet [ Soft Spot / Hanover ] Pronouns: he/they “Based in Hanover, Germany, Bennet just recently started mixing their favourite records in quarantine. Their selections encompass forgotten acidy, breaksy and housy records that channel effects of (self-)empowerment, queer liberation, agency and togetherness while certainly not leaving out more recent publications and edits that seek to reinterpret and shift past beats. The focus of their mixes lays on a blend of cutting dramatic vocals with constant, broken or non-existent beats. Wrapped into ecstatic drums, these cut-in vocals manifest narratives of the (queer) body and community. Also, Bennet is part of the DJ-collective soft spot which was founded by women & LGBTIQA+ to open up spaces for experimental, electronic sounds & queer-feminist politics on and off the dancefloor in Hanover. Next to organising parties and events, soft spot also gathers workshops and lectures for a shift towards the better within their local scene. When not spinning records, Bennet turns the pottery wheel. Their ceramics encompass an interplay of black and white clay, which, due to coincidental mixing, always display dfferent patterns. Also, Bennet studies their Master's in Cultural Sciences, Media- and Gender Studies to later enter the sector of education and perform some sort of activism on a macro level.” Socials: Insta: @bennet__0 SoundCloud: https://soundcloud.com/bennetd Mixes: https://soundcloud.com/bennetd/sets/sets

Sat, 09 Jan 2021 10:48:20 +0000
Whilst we count down to actually being able to dance together again, here's our first edition of Nexus Radio for the new year. Continuing the quality sets and people we brought you all through 2020, this time we bring you amazing guests from Berlin, Budapest and as always, one of our belting residents. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> 1st hour MENISHU [ OMOH - Budapest ] "As a resident DJ at OMOH Menishu has a regular opportunity to share his vision on floor-friendly dance music: a primal and sexually-charged mix of old and new fluently maneuvering between house and techno. Through his work he's become a driving force of Budapest's underground scene and queer movement, and in rebuilding the seemingly lost bond between the two. OMOH has fought for the queer community's much deserved space in the underground: a safe haven for queerdos, weirdos and other misfits. The primary focus has always been the community and by extension the dancefloor, and this attitude shows in Menishu's DJ style as well: an all killer, no filler party-starter." www.soundcloud.com/menishu >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> 2nd hour WHATTIS [ Bleak Narrative - Berlin ] "Whattis, uncommonly referred to as The Swedish Goddess, brings you the sweat of wild dancing and the tears of unexplainable joy every single time her divine hands touch the decks. She’s been married to hard techno for years, even though she’s having a not-so-secret love affair with her infamous mistress psytrance. Being one proud third of the new-born queer underground music platform Bleak Narrative, you can be sure she’s not a c*nt. ❤" www.soundcloud.com/djwhattis >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> 3rd Hour SH13 [ Nexus / wAliens / FNOOB ] "The dark techno / industrial pseudonym of Nexus resident Sted Hellvis (dirty warehouse / squat techno); equally tough in outlook and attitude, SH13 is the outlet for the mayhem pitching in around 135-140bpm. SH13’s sets focus on an industrial edge, with monstrous kick drums, twisted distortion and dirty sonics. Sometimes described as brutal, it’s hard edged without a doubt, but doesn’t lose the focus of the dancefloor." www.soundcloud.com/sted-hellvis

Also under Anti Mass, a queer collective party, and under a female DJ collective Fourmanysisters under Nyege Nyege Festival. ‘Combining sounds to make music and making people move, feel and experience those sounds is fascinating. I’m always pushing to learn new things, eager for knowledge and experiencing people and music. Inspired by freedom of existing and breaking boundaries when creating.’ https://soundcloud.com/turkana_ss https://cashmereradio.com/episode/cashmere-guest-mixes-upout-w-turkana-eq-why-jamie-palta/ https://www.instagram.com/anitakevyn/ https://www.facebook.com/Turkana-101280011457526/ >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Hour 4: THE MACHINE We’re really happy to welcome The Machine (aka Ste Knight) to the show, we clocked his stuff via his awesome ‘Melt Your Face’ night over in Liverpool (great bookings, good spaces, quality ethos) - you’re in for a treat :) ”Sensing the hypocrisy of writing about producers and DJs without actually being able to do it himself, 2019 saw The Machine investing in a set of decks and a bunch of vinyl to learn from the ground up. Former editor of The Waveform Transmitter, Ste has a fondness for all electronic music, with acid, electro, dnb, and techno all playing a huge part in his musical tastes. Ste might be a novice in terms of time served, but he knows a quality track when he hears one and is ALWAYS ready to share it with you (whether you want him to or not).” https://www.facebook.com/ste.themachine/

Occasional drum machine and synth hybrid set stuff. You might hear: fast as anything brutality / wonky stuff / 90s wobblers / vogue samples / acid lines / big kicks. You won't hear: Drumcode / Ibiza techno. Along with Loss Function - they've been bringing their individual brand of dancefloor punishers to nights across the UK and Europe over the last year, including a Berlin debut. https://www.residentadvisor.net/dj/arondeus www.facebook.com/ArondeusLossFunctionTechno www.soundcloud.com/nexustechno >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>. 2nd Hour: MATT HOLT [MONO] Matt is a techno DJ, avid music collector and a lover of underground electronica. Hailing from Wolverhampton, matt discovered his passion for the underground scene through Hysteria, Helter Skelter and Rennie Pilgrem mixtapes. Learning his trade at the age of 17 on a pair of belt-driven turntables he soon got gigs in local Wolverhampton bars. These were followed with regular nights at Nailed, a hard dance night in Leicester. With the years passing by, Matt’s sound has changed but always keeping to that Techno sound. Whether its funky chunky cuts, driving energetic stompers or darker melodic breaks, Matt’s sets fit any dancefloor. https://soundcloud.com/mattholtmusic https://www.facebook.com/matt.holt.9085 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
