Music Monday: Listen to Adriatique’s Essential Mix Debut

 

In this week’s appointment with Music Monday we listen back to Adriatique’s Essential Mix debut from this past Friday.

The two Adrians paired up for their first Essential Mix on Pete Tong’s BBC Radio 1 show, delivering two hours of forward-thinking music that incorporates their signature melodic and dark house, paired with modern cuts and hypnotic, entrancing elements.

Recorded in a club in Basel for optimal sound, the mix is peppered with enthralling instrumentation, captivating soundscapes and the addictive hypnotic vocals that have made the Diynamic duo one of the most respected acts in today’s underground dance music circuit. The recording includes music from Peter Kruder, Mano le Tough and Larry Heard, as well as new music from Adriatique themselves.

Listen to the mix via BBC Radio 1 or via SoundCloud below:

Diynamic Music was founded in 2006 by Solomun and Adriano Trolio. Built on the motto “Do It Yourself” with the aim of showcasing the best of underground electronic music on the rise, the Hamburg imprint has gone on to launch a ‘2DIY4′ sub-label, a book agency “DIY-BOOKING’, Diynamic Showcases around the globe and Diynamic Festivals in Amsterdam, Berlin, Brazil, Buenos Aires, Istanbul and Tel Aviv.

On an individual level, the German label has launched and supported the careers of some of the most sought-after names in today’s underground dance scene, including paving the way for Solomun’s own weekly residency on Ibiza, the infamous “Solomun +1” events at legendary night club Pacha, and dedicated Diynamic stages at festivals around the world. In the past 10 years, Diynamic has released music from some of the biggest names in the German and international music scene, with more than 80 releases and 14 artists now featuring the Diynamic stamp of approval.

We would like to wish Diynamic Music a Happy 10th Birthday with a special selection of our 10 favorite tracks released in the first 10 years of the label’s operation. Enjoy!

Insomniac’s Factory 93 Returns to Los Angeles to Commemorate 10 Years of Diynamic

Diynamic

The history of California’s rave scene can be traced back to the early 90s rave parties often thrown in the desert or remote warehouse locations. The biggest electronic dance music brand of the United States, Insomniac, grew from those very same roots when it was first founded back in 1993.

This past May, Pasquale Rotella’s company decided to return to their origins by launching Factory 93, a brand and party series dedicated to the underground sounds of dance music. Moving away from Incomniac’s large-scale or club productions, Factory 93 relocated back where everything started over 30 years ago, at a warehouse party featuring Hot Since 82.

That first sold-out show was a success, paving the way for a journey that is now set to continue on December 3th at another warehouse location in downtown Los Angeles. The occasion? Diynamic Music’s 10 year anniversary, a milestone that will see Solomun and his crew travel throughout Europe and the United States on a tour showcasing the best the label has to offer.

The DTLA show will be one of five in the United States and, similar to the recent Factory 93 launch event, the night will feature a true warehouse aesthetic, immersing fans in nothing but darkness, a globally acclaimed soundtrack, live performance art, and many more surprises. Included in the Los Angeles lineup are Adriatique, Karmon, Magdalena, Kollektiv-Turmstrasse and Stimming both playing live sets and of course label head-honcho Solomun.

In addition to the underground setting the party is sure to provide, attendees will be treated to the soundscapes that have characterized Diynamic artists for the last decade. Expect a welcome collision of tech and deep house and warming digital grooves — an ever-glowing mixture of gilded melodies and graceful textures that is surely set to provide an eventful journey into the early hours of the next morning.

Exclusive pre-sale tickets for the show sold out already, but general sale begins on Friday, October 14, at noon PT.

Factory 93 Presents 10 Years Diynamic takes place Saturday, December 3, in Downtown Los Angeles. For more information, visit the official event page. For tickets visit Resident Advisor.
