About the concept:
Here is the thirty-eighth 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 Objection’s mix of tracks & remixes by Subjected.
Objection is a DJ, Liveact and producer duo based in Mannheim, Germany. The rich diversity of their sets make their performances spontaneous, variable and full of tension at the same time. Their sound is atmospherically gloomy, driving and raw while still keeping a positive vibe. An electrifying, highly energetic mix that emerges from their great love of detail, born in the moment and always evolving. With the creation of their own label Distorted Perception as well as their eponymous series of events, they have created a platform for individual and innovative techno, as well as high-quality productions. This has generated support from international artists, such as Marcel Dettman, Kobosil, Inigo Kennedy, Freddy K, Giorgio Gigli and Boston 168.
Anomity as a function, mystical without usual clichés. No hiding behind masks, no digging in the past, no techno purism, no strive for fame – SUBJECTED stands for distinctly deep, identifiable techno. Designed in the shadows, to be consumed in the darkness. A label. Music, and nothing more. Born in Hoyerswerda in 1983 and brought up in the tristesse of Berlin-Hellersdorf, he was strongly socialized by the lower class suburb with its grey, oppressive tower blocks. The first musical attempts he made were in Hip Hop and rap, but it wasn’t long until he started to be aware of all the progress happening in Berlin in the mid 90’s, and got infected by the early club nights in legendary E-werk and Tresor as well as mixtapes from local radio stations. All of this shaped him towards his own musical reinvention. Techno as a possibility of identification, allowed him to find himself. It’s the monotony, the uniqueness of the synthetic sound, that enabled Subjected to express himself – starting as a DJ, since 2006 also acting as a producer. This resulted in various projects and the launch of Vault Series in 2010. Ever since their first major successes, Vault Series are a guarantee for dancefloor-oriented tracks, with highly distinctive concepts and structures of sound

Objection About Their Choice:
Subjected has had a great impact and influence on us as producers and given us a lot of inspiration for our studio time. We love the rich diversity in his productions and the unique custom sound he produces. Each track sounds exceptional and speaks for itself.To us, those tracks are the perfect combination of dark and raw techno with a great ability to implement a complicated, spherical and complex melody when the time is right.
