Love Over Entropy - Atomnation Podcast #009
If you ask us to name our favorite producers at this moment, Love Over Entropy will be very highly positioned if not at the very top.

We don’t have opportunities to hear DJ style podcast from Love Over Entropy that often so moments like this are always special. We enjoyed listening to this podcast a lot in last couple of weeks. It’s perfectly blended tracks tell one deep love story…

Samsa - SoHaSo Podcast Series vol.24
Niclas Gillich aka Samsa is Munich based DJ and one of the co-organizers of boutique festival Farrago which we wrote about last week in our blog. Samsa was a guest at the latest edition of SoHaSo podcast series. This is the description that came with a mix and we couldn’t agree more with it: A hypnotizing introduction by Sei A functions as the catalyst of this sonic journey, slowly engulfing the listener in a womb like a state filled with heartfelt melodies. Diverging from here, Samsa slowly introduces more and more rhythmic elements but keeps the hypnotizing undertone to further suck the listener in. Building the energy until about halfway through a definite switch is made to driving cosmic music, resulting in a sonic excursion that’s worth repeating…

Baikal - Flux FM Berlin Radio set
Baikal, one of the founders of Berlin based label Maeve, is one of the figures in an electronic music scene that doesn’t get satisfied with the average. He usually takes time with his productions but when it’s out, his master craft is being supported and played by the majority of leading DJ’s in the underground music world and enjoyed by millions of fans. Baikal is equally uncompromised when it comes to delivering a DJ set. Lately, we can hear Baikal playing mostly techno, but only the best and dance floor friendly techno, that leaves the crowd in awe every time. We had the honor to host Baikal and luck to witness his magic in March when he was a special guest at our SoHaSo showcase party alongside Nuno Dos Santos and Love Over Entropy. For this mix Baikal took little different approach than for the usual podcast. As he says in the description of the mix, the mix is more like an hour snapshot of a 3-4hr set rather than a podcast with a beginning and end. Techno at its best delivered by one of the best, enjoy!
Mattheis - at Tresor, Berlin 03 July, 2017
We head an opportunity to hear Mattheis, a Dutch native producer, and a regular at Nous’klaer Audio roster, a couple of times playing live sets which were highlights of the parties almost every time. We yet have to hear him DJing but this recording from Berlin’s infamous Tresor from early July will do the justice for now. The set is filled with atmospheric upbeat techno that in moments flirts with trance but in a way that you will like. It’s certainly Mattheis’ signature style.
Man Power - DGTL Festival podcast #56
Man Power is back on our list. This time he made an exclusive mix for DGTL festival. It’s one-hour tour de force mix, which from the very first track (Dixon’s remix of Chloe – Dawn) implies that there will be no slowing down this time under the captain Man Power. Phenomenal driving techno mix!
Architectural - Monument 134
Juan Rico better known as Architectural, is a Spanish techno producer and DJ. Ahead of his appearance at the Parallel festival in Spain, Nico made this very special set. It’s immaculately mixed minimal atmospheric techno mix. After the nice ambient introduction, it goes into a tour de force of finest techno.
