[NovaFuture Blog Exclusive Mix]: Konkret plays Semantica

March 9, 2017
 

DJ:
Konkret

 

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.

 

About Konkret:
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.

 

About Semantica:
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.
