UTDB welcomes Carl H, co- founder of Northern Purpose, Project.5 and Normal Behaviour to its series of podcasts.
I first heard Carl play at his residency for Collective Minds and thought he was fantastic, and after having him play a 6 hour, record for record, b2b set for us at Dialogue with Jane Fitz, (which was easily one of the best moments musically I have ever experienced), I couldn’t wait to have him put together a mix for me.
A special hour of music here as Carl treats us to some fresh sounds after receiving a nice little record delivery the day before recording this! A little bit different to what you may have heard Carl play up until now, as this mix includes a few more wonky electro infused numbers than usual. True to form Carl throws in a little bit of acid for good measure and the odd mellower track in between. I found it really refreshing, even the naughty little skip in one of the records (Carl specifically asked me to say sorry to you all about this). I think you will love it too, enjoy!
If you love a small, intimate, (we’re talking 500 people) boutique festival, with some absolutely top notch, avant-garde DJs, riverside location, 60 minutes out of London, then Field Maneuvers is the one for you…

A banging vinyl only techno mix of old and new tunes from London based Leah Floyeurs. Covering more than 20 years of techno, guaranteed to make the neighbours dance!
Leah has hosted her own radio show “Leah with Sound” for the past two years on Timeline Music (www.timeline-music.net) and it airs at 8pm every third Tuesday of each month - definitely check it out, if you haven’t already.
I first saw Leah play live last year at Freerotation and in my opinion it was one of the best sets I heard at the festival. I cannot wait to see what she has lined up for us this year, roll on July!

"Kicking off the first in a series of mixtapes from artists from the boe family is Anaxander. Fresh from dropping the underground bomb "Dance Et Cetera" on the Halal Prepared Vol. 2 EP in November, Anaxander delivers a varied house mix. Moving from synth flavoured house jams to loose disco beats, classic French deepness and modern techno, all in the space of 60 minutes. Anaxander’s choice picks provide a fine way to start the series and this mix is a great reflection of what boe is all about."

A great new 100% vinyl mix, showcasing ‘Anthony’. Anthony has incorporated lots different vibes within this mix which I love.
“I’m a record collector and prefer to mix and record using vinyl as I enjoy imperfections in a mix - when you listen back you can hear small mistakes so it seems much more realistic and live. You can hear the analogue sounds, movements, pops and crackles. A lot of DJs I feel are far too focused on beat matching rather than track selection (as long as you don’t clang the whole way through a mix, ha!).
I look up to and aspire to DJs such as Move D, Theo Parrish and Floating Points, their selection and passion is unmissable. Hope you enjoy the mix!”
At the recent Hackathon Europe in Berlin, designers have addressed one of the clubbing world’s most difficult problems: how to get into Berghain, the most entrance selective club around. Well now, like just about everything else, there’s an app for tha…
