“A mixture of pure stress, some melancholia, peaceful thoughts, hate and glee.”
Continuing its tradition of throwing one of London’s best techno parties the weekend before Christmas, Hydra returns to Printworks on Saturday the 21st of December – with a line-up that can only be described as stacked. This year, they’ve tapped artists including Marcel Dettmann b2b DJ Stingray, Shed Presenting EQD Live, Laurel Halo, Skee Mask and Afrodeutsche.
Ahead of the festivities, and on the heels of his beautiful Oderbruch album on Ostgut Ton, producer and DJ Shed has come through with an hour-long mix, spanning from new releases to a few older favourites:
“We’re at the end of the year! I wanted to catch that mood. In my case it is a mixture of pure stress, some melancholia, peaceful thoughts, hate and glee. Therefore its going up and down. Loud and quiet. Harsh and soft.
“My studio is a mess right now! It was like mixing in a junkyard. My second MK2 is still missing. I thought it’s in the basement, but it wasn’t. Sorry for that! So the setup was as you can see on the picture. (Sorry, there is no other one). Vinyl + USB. No special tricks. No efx. Have a good one!”
Say no more.
