Sly Nein takes the audience through a mix of experimental, obscure and futuristic electronic music, indoctrinating ambient and soundscape passages to create an almost cinematic setting for his dj sets. Selections often include revisits to past times, in the vein and love of early 90′s experimental electronica and progressive techno.
Fast paced mixing and proper track selection, are some of the things that fall in to mind when listening to his dj sets. Being part of the collective New Folder, experimental culture establishment Return of Investment and Club Endless at Dunkel, Sly Nein knows what it’s all about. So sit back, relax, and get deep.
What have you mixed for us?
This is my first voyage into real house music! In this mixtape I’ve mainly been exploring the depths of percussive deep house, classic detroit/chicago house & 110 bpm techno-ish tunes, mixing it up a bit with a few experimental tracks/soundscapes. I’ve wanted to do a house mix for a long time, so I saw this as an opportunity to combine some of the deeper things and snatch out a
few gems. The idea behind the mix was to make something that sounded deep, atmospheric and subtle.
Does the mix reflect what you play out at the moment?
I’ve primarily been playing techno the past year, so this is something new for me. I do see a lot of potential in the recent developments in slow house/weird house, people like Dj Qu, Keith Worthy, Levon Vincent, Miles Sagnia & Fred P. seems to be heading in interesting directions. For the gigs taking place earlier in the evening, I really plan on implementing a
lot of these things into my sets.
What are your plans for the future?
New Folder is releasing a summer sampler very soon, which should be quite interesting! We have a very solid talent mass within the collective and I’m quite confident that people will be blown away by it. Also I’m very excited about Endless (the club I run with Tennis & Emiru), we’re lucky enough to have the techno/wonky artist Actress (UK, WerkDiscs) over for a gig the 13th
of August at Dunkel.
