Travel To Techno Heaven With A New Mix From Jimmy Edgar.
Berlin expat techno guy Jimmy Edgar cut his teeth as a scrappy club kid in Detroit, and since then he’s weaved in and out of various genres—electro, funk, techno, straight-up house music—with ease. He’s the latest artist to contribute to London club institution Fabric’s Fabrliclive mix series, as his FABRICLIVE 79 sees release next week; to celebrate its imminent arrival, Edgar’s put together a half-hour mix spun entirely on wax. “This is my first all vinyl mix in a few years and 2015 I will be doing a lot more digging since Ultramajic is concentrating on vinyl,” Edgar told FADER in an email. (Ultramajic is his label, btw.) “For me, vinyl is a piece of history, a stamp in time that also changes with time. I find it fascinating going back to a physical format that has been played in so many different scenarios.” In depth thoughts via XLR8R on 2015 and what’s to come.
A brand new 12-inch vinyl package from Aden aka Machinedrum going by the name TANZ will be released to the stores in February.
It’s not a collection of the year’s best tracks, sorry! There’s some real beautiful music in there though, and some tracks that I really enjoyed playing in many different occasions. It also turned out to be quite a dark. And finally, 2014 was a great year for techno!

Dennis Ferrer throwing down the house hits for an absolutely packed Boiler Room NY Objektivity session!
Objektivity is starting the year with launching the long-awaited vinyl-only sub-label called OBJ Analogue. As the name says, the concept behind this is that in order to make the record, it has to be totally hardware based: No plug-ins! Objektivity head-honcho Dennis Ferrer says: “The OBJ Analogue is a special project for me and is dear to my heart because I love analogue gear, vinyl, and hardware, so I keep that side of me happy.”
The first OBJ Analogue release is coming by VIVa Music’s Steve Lawler. “Inna State / Recuperate” 12-inch vinyl package will be released to the stores in February.
A day in the life of Preben, a singer, dancer and party animal from Carl Berner, Oslo.

After a lengthy delay — URB’s podcast series is back and swinging with some heavy hitters en route to your speakers…or earbuds. Starting it off this week is Dutch electronic denizen Darko Esser; who’s been busy as of late under his Tripeo alias, providing tracks for the likes of Oscar Mulero’s Polegroup imprint, as well as Clone’s Basement series. What’s curious about Esser is his attention to detail in his productions; he never goes for the jugular, but goes for the heart instead. There’s a vigor in his sound that’s unique and uncanny, standing out as early back as his releases on Curle Recordings and Perc Trax. Esser is someone we’ve been clamoring to contribute to this series and we’re happy that we’re finally able to share it with the world. Enjoy responsibly.
A six-track set featuring reworks of cuts taken from Darko Esser’s latest album will be released in January.
