[NovaFuture Blog Exclusive Mix]: Konkret plays SemanticaMarch 9, 2017
About the concept:
Here is the seventh 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. Here we have Konkret who mixed some Semantica stuff.
Konkret is the alias of Berlin based DJ, Oliver Raunjak.
With moving in the German capital from Austria 4 years ago, he passionately started playing on vinyl, collected from the surrounded record shops of his neighborhood who helped to shape his sound.
Influenced by a nostalgia for old school techno, his DJ sets are described as futuristic and energetic, switching from sinister atmospheres to celestial landscapes.
Techno/IDM label owned by Svreca

Konkret About His Choice:
Semantica has always been there, at the beginning and now. It’s a kind of partner which is travelling with me since I started getting deeper in this kind of sound.
The 5 Years Compilation Part 5, released in 2011 with collaborations between Karl O’Connor, Peter Sutton and Richard Harvey for example, was one of the first records I bought – huge inspiration.
I’m a huge fan of drones and jams which appear a lot in the releases on the label, for example Acronym, IORI or Varg, just to name a few.
With this style of sound, I somehow can reach a mesmerizing state of mind, it feels incredibly personal and helps me to shape my creativity.
Shouts to Svreca and the artists for creating such an authentic label.
