1) Nexus #45 // Radio // Feat: Mevs, Aura Sounds, Turkana & The Machine

Sat, 11 Jul 2020 10:55:17 +0000
A special extended show for our (ish) third birthday - featuring a debut ‘official’ set from our newest resident, alongside guests from the NW of the UK to Kampala. The show went out live on www.techno.fm on the 10th July 2020 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Hour 1: MEVS "Hailing from the channel island of Jersey, Mevs first started collecting and playing gabba and hard techno in his teens after discovering the infamous Thunderdome compilation series, and would later go on to collect and play hiphop, breakbeat and drum n bass. Since moving to Manchester over a decade ago, he become involved in the local queer scene and has played open-format sets at Bollox and Kiss Me Again, as well as becoming a regular face at Manc techno institution Meat Free. The last 5 years have seen him quietly refining his sound, a blend of tough percussive beats with rave and hiphop elements that can't fail to make your body move." https://www.mixcloud.com/mevs_mcr/ >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Hour 2: AURA SOUNDS [ Nexus / Underground Kollectiv ] We’re delighted to welcome Aura Sounds for her inaugural radio show as a full resident (she’s played some amazing sets for us both on the radio and at our events). ”Aura Sounds is a DJ based in Manchester's bohemian Northern Quarter. Growing up on a diet of 80s electro and 90s house, Aura has cultivated an appetite for EDM, House and Techno music and has a bona fide addiction to bass. It was this passion that ultimately led Aura to finally get behind the decks for herself. Aura has honed her skills with the continued help of DJ Mark One and the School of Electronic Music, and can be found on the decks at every available moment. She draws inspiration from the likes of Carl Cox, Amelie Lens and Adriatique.” https://www.instagram.com/aura_sounds/ >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Hour 3: TURKANA We’re absolutely psyched to welcome Turkana to the show - we caught her Anti-Mass Boiler Room set and were blown away. You’re in for a treat! “Anita Kevin, born in 1997, South Sudanese Ugandan DJ and producer, founder of Okuki arts Kampala. Played Nyege Nyege Festival and Viva con Agua Concert 2019, Full moon party and Sauti Za Bushara Festival After party 2020 in Zanzibar, Tanzania. Often playing at Underground parties in Kampala. 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/

8) Nex Radio 25 // live on techno.fm // 10.4.20 // feat: He Valencia, Hans Delbruch & SH13

Sat, 11 Apr 2020 01:07:06 +0000
Recording of our NexusRadio 25 show, which went out live on www.techno,fm on Friday 10th April 2020 1st hour: He Valencia 2nd hour: Hans Delbruck 3rd hour: SH13 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> He Valencia “He Valencia is an Indiana-based artist exploring the permeations and intersections of techno and other forms of experimental electronic music. He uses these sounds to explore greater themes of diaspora and afrofuturism.” https://www.residentadvisor.net/dj/hevalencia He’s played around the US and further afield with luminaries of the interesting end of techno and other dance forms including Bergsonist, Ariel Zetina, Carlos Souffront & Umfang, amongst others - and has thrown down guestmixes on iconic stations and shows such as rinse.fm, Lot Radio and NTS. We ran into HV online through this stunning mix - https://soundcloud.com/he_valencia/rave-reparations-exclusive-guest-mix-by-he-valencia, and we’re delighted to welcome him to Nexus radio for your listening pleasure - with what’ll be an amazing mix. https://soundcloud.com/he_valencia https://www.facebook.com/HEVALENCIA/ https://twitter.com/extinctdaemon >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Hans Delbruck Hans Delbrück (AKA Harry Walker) is a multi-instrumentalist and electronic music producer from the North West of England who’s played at a number of Nexus parties and radio shows and has always taken the roof off. We’re psyched to have him back. ”Early influences come from the psych and punk music of the free festival scene from the late 80’s and early 90’s, which naturally morphed into the heavy, fast dance music that developed from those roots. A veteran of the Manchester dance music scene, he was one half of resident live Techno act ‘Repeater’ at the legendary Havok nights and in-house producer for the label of the same name. Along with his partner in crime, Alan Woodburn, they played a hard mix of Acid Trance and Techno. Their first EP was from a shared session with London legends ‘Brides Make Acid’ and was released on ‘Filterless’ records. However, with the snowballing success of the Havok club, Havok Records was soon formed and a string of releases came shortly after: his collaborations and remixes with various artists and DJ.s include Lab4, Chris Liberator and Medicine man, to name but a few. Over the last few years Harry has found himself drawn back to the electronic music he enjoyed so much in the past so the decision was made and ‘Hans Delbruck’ was resurrected. With a passion for heavy, brooding Techno and roots in the psychedelic soundscapes of his early influences, todays sound finds itself drifting between dark, minimal Techno and classic Acid Trance building with layers of ethereal synth patterns in equal measures of light and shade. Live and radio shows around the NW have received rave reviews – and recent releases and remixes on high-quality labels such as Oxytech, Dolma and Hardwandler have cemented Hans’ reputation as an incredible musician and performer.” https://www.facebook.com/pg/HansDelbruc/ www.soundcloud.com/anselbruck >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> SH13 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. https://www.facebook.com/stedhellvisindustrial https://soundcloud.com/sted-hellvis

10) NexusRadio >23< feat: Arondeus, Herrrouine & Wext b2b Harami

Fri, 13 Mar 2020 22:57:42 +0000
Spring is springing, so celebrate by getting foxy in the woods with the March edition of NexusRadio: 3 hours of the finest techno from around the globe. This month we're stoked to welcome three awesome DJs from across Europe (no tedious EuroTech here though) for our guest mixes :) >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> HARAMI b2b WEXT [ İBNE - Stockholm ] "İBNE is Turkish derogatory slang for a homosexual man, derived from the Arabic word for son. More importantly, it’s the name of the new queer collective of Harami (Aryan Batti) and WEXT (Karim El Harrak), previously part of Faggotry Collective. İBNE raves will provide a monthly rave in Stockholm’s underground scene for everyone who’s looking for a sex positive queer fun time in a proper warehouse setting - no matter your gender, no matter which gender you’re trying to get with, let’s sweat together. Fast, dark, hard techno - always with that little cheekiness, but expect the unexpected. Enjoy this set with influences from the 90’s rave sound, EBM and some other cute İBNEness." https://www.facebook.com/ibnecollective/ >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> HERRROUINE "Herrrouine was born in Basel, Switzerland as the son of a father with Tunisian origins and a Swiss mother. Some time later, with the discovery of another musical and cultural conglomerate called House and Techno, which was no less based on the black music tradition he already moved in, Hischem was now sure to have found his real passion. Especially in the more machine-based, repetitive, driving and minimalist aesthetic of Techno he met the perfect form to express his artistic vision and idea of a hypnotic, trance-like amalgamation of music and dance. For Herrrouine, Techno is the postmodern urban manifestation of African & indigenous tribal cultures, where simple rhythmicity and rule free dance were means to reach a higher state of individual and collective mind. To guide his audience and himself into this condition of consciousness is what he wants to achieve during his dj sets and with his own productions. While for his dj sets, played at clubs like Nordstern, Hirscheneck and Hinterhof among others, the idea of the shaman is central to him, it’s the perfect sound experience Hischem strives for with his productions. Perfection not in a way of cleanness though, but as a tool to intensify and tweak the physicality and musicality of an individual and collective moment at the club. Asked about his musical and artistic influences, Herrrouine takes a lot of inspiration from genres like Trance, Industrial, New Wave, Jazz and HipHop to create his interpretation of Techno music.” https://soundcloud.com/herrrouine https://soundcloud.com/rehbellen >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> ARONDEUS [ Nexus / Lost and Found / Techno.fm ] Disco-infused warehouse rave.

Along with Loss Function - they've been bringing their individual brand of dancefloor punishers to nights across the UK and Europe over the last couple of years, including a Berlin debut.

11) Nexus Radio 22 - LIVE on Techno.fm - feat: Alex Christy, Kingkade & Wes Baggaley

Sat, 15 Feb 2020 10:01:17 +0000
Really pleased to share our show for the Feb / Valentine's / AntiValentine's Nexus radio show. As usual, we've got a resident doing the business, along with a local-ish guest and someone from a bit further afield - as well as some chat and stuff here and there about what's happening in Nexus world. This month - we kick off (7-8pm) with local stalwart Alex Christy ( https://m.mixcloud.com/ALFONSO_/) - resident at some of Chester''s biggest and best nights: Nghtwrk, The Mango Club and new kid on the block Teulu. Nexus resident DJ Kingkade ( https://m.facebook.com/djkingkade/ ) then takes us through to 9pm with his trademark blend of deep and hypnotic groovers. Closing out the show, we're delighted to have the awesome Wes Baggaley [ Bottom Heavy / Rinse FM ] with an exclusive all-vinyl mix of properly swift techno. We've seen Wes spin a few times now, most recently at High Hoops in Manc alongside Eris Drew (including a cheeky b2b to finish the night) and then we just managed to dash over from our gig and catch the last hour of his inaugural set at the iconic Berghain / Panorama Bar . Both belting sets and you're in for a treat. https://www.residentadvisor.net/dj/wesbaggaley

- Mark Archer ( Altern 8 / Nexus 21 ) - Kessie & Mandy ( Flesh in Tension - Leeds ) - Babs ( All Hands on Deck - Manchester ) - Loss Function ( Nexus / techno.fm ) That's a lineup and a half... We’ve had some outrageously good shows recently - and this one was no exception and it’s another extended one, this time for a whole 4 hours. Broadcast LIVE on techno.fm - 10.1.20 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> 1st Hour (8-9pm) BABS [ All Hands on Deck - Manchester ] “All Hands On Deck is a feminist DJ collective that runs open deck parties for women, trans and non-binary people. Aside from our open deck parties, we also host DJ workshops and social events for our collective members. The collective was founded on the basis that we wanted to create a welcoming space in which people could try their hands at DJing out in a low-pressure, non-judgemental environment. We believe that it is important to support and uplift new DJs in the face of a scene that is not representative of Manchester's diversity.Since we started in July 2018, we have created a community of local DJs who have played at various festivals, including Westival, Lost Cove, Sparkle Fest and Sounds from the Other City. We also have members who have regular radio slots on stations such as Limbo Radio and Reform Radio.” Founders: Anna Cooper // Anna Sophie Hayter // Hayter Player Tracy Duah // Abena Rosa Methol // Babs Contact: General bookings: allhandsondeckmanchester@gmail.com https://www.mixcloud.com/allhands0ndeck https://www.facebook.com/allhands0ndeck/ >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> 2nd Hour (9-10pm) Kessie + Mandy + Friends [ Flesh in Tension - Leeds ] “Looking back into our queer histories, Flesh in Tension aims to bring a fresh outlook and some filth, fetish and frivolity onto the scene. Backdropped by raw, hard techno yet pushing the boundaries of techno sets, we twist the usual fetish space by decentering white cis masculinity and instead invite you to embrace its roots in the Queer and PoC communities that this party is inspired by. All bodies are beautiful, all styles are beautiful. Sexual liberation is at our core.” www.facebook.com/fleshintension/ >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> (3rd Hour / 10-11pm) MARK ARCHER [ Altern 8 / Nexus21 ] Seeing as how it’s NexusRadio’s 21st time out, we thought it’d be fun to see if we could get a Nexus21 linkup, and we’re very psyched to have the legend that is Mark Archer, also of the iconic Altern 8 (who were pretty damn formative in getting some of us into rave back in the day), with a very special set for our latest show…we’re excited. https://soundcloud.com/mrnex https://www.residentadvisor.net/dj/markarcher Altern 8 were a joyous mix of some rather eclectic influences. It sounded so simple and fun and yet the music was deceptively complex. Altern 8 went interstellar with a bunch of hit singles and the album Full-On Mask Hysteria, which hit number 10 in the charts. For a while the unlikely lads from Stafford were jetting around the globe with the likes of Moby, as Altern 8 captured the imaginations of ravers everywhere. Bizarre Inc., Nexus 21, Altern 8, Trackman, Slo Moshun, Xen Mantra, DJ Nex… Mark Archer has been making and spinning, the finest dance music for an incredible 30 years. Now, that is something to CELEBR8! So, get your bookings in for the ‘Man Behind The Mask 30th Anniversary Tour’. It’s going to get emotional.

We ran into his party, Harder (https://www.instagram.com/harderparty/) whilst clocking fellow queer and lgbtq-friendly techno parties around Europe and the world, and quickly made a solid connection based on a mutual love of hooning techno and the transformative potential of a quality crowd on an inclusive dancefloor. Currently based in Bucharest, by way of the Netherlands and Berlin - Bunny has been throwing parties in both Bucharest and recently Sofia, Bulgaria - carving out a niche providing techno of the hardest and most intense variety to crowds of open-minded people of whatever background. Harder is currently working with crews and DJs from around Europe (parties coming up also feature the awesome Gegen collective from Berlin) to curate next-level nights.

A veteran of the Manchester dance music scene, he was one half of resident live Techno act ‘Repeater’ at the legendary Havok nights and in-house producer for the label of the same name. Along with his partner in crime, Alan Woodburn, they played a hard mix of Acid Trance and Techno. Their first EP was from a shared session with London legends ‘Brides Make Acid’ and was released on ‘Filterless’ records. However, with the snowballing success of the Havok club, Havok Records was soon formed and a string of releases came shortly after: his collaborations and remixes with various artists and DJ.s include Lab4, Chris Liberator and Medicine man, to name but a few. Over the last few years Harry has found himself drawn back to the electronic music he enjoyed so much in the past so the decision was made and ‘Hans Delbruck’ was resurrected. With a passion for heavy, brooding Techno and roots in the psychedelic soundscapes of his early influences, todays sound finds itself drifting between dark, minimal Techno and classic Acid Trance building with layers of ethereal synth patterns in equal measures of light and shade. Live and radio shows around the NW have received rave reviews – and recent releases and remixes on high-quality labels such as Oxytech, Urban Chaos and Hardwandler have cemented Hans’ reputation as an incredible musician and performer. https://www.facebook.com/pg/HansDelbruc/ www.soundcloud.com/anselbruck >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Arondeus Disco-infused warehouse rave. 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 - including a Berlin debut in November. https://www.residentadvisor.net/dj/lossfunction www.facebook.com/ArondeusLossFunctionTechno

First up, we have the awesome Ross Alexander - who we've caught at various nights around the NW and have always been blown away by. We've got a belting live set from the man himself for the first hour :) "Ross’ music is a melting pot of many influences. Utilising drum machines and groove boxes, Ross has found the sweet spot between Detroit/European techno and electro. With Ross, “being a fan of machines”, you can also expect prominent bass, breaks and bleeps." https://soundcloud.com/ross-alexander >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Next, taking us through the second hour of the show we've got the brilliant Samantha Togni "Samantha Togni, an internationally-renowned DJ, producer and mixing engineer. Not only has she played headline sets in super-clubs from Tokyo to America, Togni has also built a really strong reputation with her productions in the Electronic Music scene. The last few years in particular have seen the rising star land coveted support slots for the likes of Miss Kittin and Sinjin Hawke. Togni has also shared stages with everyone from UMEK, Magda, Camelphat, Boris, always experimenting with and adapting her sound to electrify any audience. This unique soundscape was written across 2016 single ‘Queen Nemesis’, a frantic, uptempo track featuring rapid-fire raps from London MC Janset. The track quickly racked up support from Adidas Originals, which playlisted the song in its stores, as well as press outlets including Dazed Korea, The 405, Red Bull and Wonderland, who described Togni as the DJ to watch. Togni is also a core member of INFERNO, a London-based club collective renowned for fusing club culture, performance art and techno which caught the attention of Dazed and I-D. They hold a residency at The Yard where she is also a resident DJ. Togni has performed in super-clubs like O2 Brixton Academy, Ministry Of Sound, Electric Brixton, Goa (Rome), Sala Cool (Madrid), Milk Club (Turin), Loftus Hall (Berlin), Lanificio 159 (Rome), Club Haus (Milan), Aistope Lounge (Tokyo) and many more. Although she has numerous gigs lined up at Destino Ibiza, Paris, EGG London and Five Miles (where she currently has a monthly residency), Elektrowerkz, Los Angeles (Globe Theatre and Soft Leather) and in the Island of Mustique, Togni has been focusing her time in the studio. Samantha has currently finished her new EP “Brutus” and it’s already working on a next EP. She is also working on projects with renowned international producers Danny Passerella, Warboy and Hectic. She has tracks lined up to be released on Glauben Records, Industrial Techno United, LSA Live, Subwoofer Records and Loose Lips, for which she will also do a podcast mix. Togni’s work does not finish here, she is due to have more radio shows appearance on Threads Radio in July and Techno.FM in August. The last year alone has seen her releasing tracks on Skint Records, #internetghetto and also self releasing a series of tracks which gained the attention of 60.000 listeners on Spotify.

Also playing at Nexus #11 (busy night!), could there be an announcement on the cards? ;) "The evil dark techno / industrial pseudonym of Sted Hellvis (dirty warehouse / squat techno); equally tough in outlook and attitude, SH13 is the outlet for the mayhem pitching in around 135-140bpm." https://www.facebook.com/stedhellvisindustrial/ >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
