NOW ON BANDCAMP 50+ Exclusive Tracks on the Electronic Explorations Compilation

This mix is a slight departure from my usual ‘tried-and-tested’ format. I wanted to play with a steady 140 BPM throughout, letting melodic elements and sound textures control the flow. It features a blend of recent vinyl releases and some of my digital-only favourites found on bandcamp, as well as a track from the new label I’m starting (Intrepid Skin) and a track my friend Nikolaj exported the very same day I recorded this (Sugar – Dark Side Of The Spoon). ~ SPFDJ

Tailgating SPFDJ is no easy task. Her sharp ascent is born of a taste for dynamics that approach and bank with ecstatic momentum. Occasionally working at vicious speeds, acidic techno climes are funnelled through kaleidoscopic wares from the wealth of high-energy outposts found across dance music today.

Though hailing from Sweden, SPFDJ’s beginnings were in London as part of the infamous collective Universe of Tang, an ongoing club operation steeped in DIY means and mystifying aesthetics. Then a relocation to Berlin prompted a new chapter of projects and activity, and the chance to import her affiliations. With sprintf, she runs the Cranial Handles transmission as well as the System.out sound system. Power Play is the latest party coerced into life by SPFDJ, sprintf, and others.
