[NovaFuture Blog Exclusive Mix]: Blaxad plays Norman Nodge

November 21, 2017
 

DJ:
Blaxad

 

About the concept:
Here is the eigthteenth instalment of our series “abc plays xyz”.

The idea behind it is to ask some DJs/mixing artists if they have an artist or label in mind that they love and would like to use for a mix.

So the approach of each mix is clear: the choosen DJ/mixing artist makes a selection of tracks produced by one artist (and her/his monikers) or released on a label (and its sublabels) and creates a nice mix from it.

Find links to all instalments at our overview. Today we present you Blaxad’s mix of tracks from Norman Nodge.

 

About Blaxad:
Blaxad lives in France, near Paris and got 2 ambitions at the moment, be an actor, be a dj, or be both. He fells in love with music quite soon, thanks to his big brothers and sister who had a big influence on him with music and others stuff. His oldest brother bought himself two turntables and vinyls. So they trained hard together, but Blaxed had more time to exercise so he was spending sometimes the whole day, trying to perform the perfect transition, to find the perfect track to play after the previous one. He was always trying to do better, and he was always waiting for advices. Then he got connections (thanks to his oldest brother) with some people in Berlin, who help him to progress.

 

About Norman Nodge:
Norman Nodge has been a resident DJ at Berghain since 2005. Being a life-long music lover, DJ and promoter of his own parties during the 90s, Norman achieved his current status as Berlin’s secret weapon for serious techno.

Born in East German Leipzig, raised in Brandenburg, Norman got bitten by the techno bug after the wall came down. In 1994 he started to promote several events and launched his career as a DJ. At these parties, he got to know Marcel Fengler and Marcel Dettmann and literally became their mentor for all things techno.

At the end of the 90s, Nodge backed out of the local nightlife in order to focus on becoming a lawyer and starting a family. Five years ago, Marcel Dettmann pitched him to Berghain’s management and he returned to DJing and became a resident instantaneously. Since then, he plays Berghain once a month, specialising in the almost forgotten art of warming up at the beginning of a night. In 2005 he also started to produce his own tracks. His maturity proved to be very beneficial in terms of his artistic vision, as he made up his mind about what he likes and what not a long time ago already. Unsurprisingly, his outings on Dettmann’s MDR label, as well as his track “Native Rhythm Electric” for Ostgut Ton left a deep impression with headstrong techno lovers. With his dusty funk, static hiss and the rich thump of his kick drums, he managed to get himself recognised as one of techno’s more unique auteurs.

Norman Nodge cites Detroit techno (Jeff Mills, Rob Hood, 430 West), Chicago House (Relief, Dance Mania) and Techno (Luke Slater, Peacefrog, Mark Broom) as his most essential influences. Hence, it is not surprising that he fuses the old with the new and the soft with the tough when he plays out. “It is my goal as a DJ to make people dance without walking on trodden paths of recent trends. I want to sensitize dancers for unusual sounds, old and new.”

Blaxad About His Choice:
Norman Nodge has a big influence on me. I know his work since I started listening Techno. I’ve always been listening closely to his sets, because he has this Djing technic that really inspires me. His track choices are always a surprise for me, he always finds the right track to play at the right time, and sometimes it ain’t is techno style. I really enjoyed making this vinyl-only mix for NovaFuture Blog with the tracks of Norman Nodge.

November 20, 2017
 

Artist:
Violent

Stressful Environment EP

 

Label:

Tracklist:

Press Info:
The Nursery’s seventh release sees another newcomer: it’s Violent. A truly promising DJ and producer from Poland, rapidly making a name for himself as a pusher of rough, breakbeat induced techno. Stressful Environment contributes to that persona. It is a fierce composition of peak time tracks, that at times hint towards industrial, while preserving a certain melancholy. It is largely this combination that makes these tracks complement each other so well. The muscular foundation gives them their power; an enlightening fragility keeps them from becoming mere stompers. With that, Violent has put together an impressive piece of contemporary techno that will most likely see the inside of many clubs in the months to come. The ‘Stressful Environment EP’ is bound to make the name Violent stick around for a while.
