Our Five Favourite DJ Mixes of 2018 (So Far)

Peggy Gou – The Cover Mix for Mixmag

The Berlin based Korean artist Peggy Gou has blessed the internet (and clubs) with consistently good music for a while now. She initially popped up on our radar earlier this year, with her track It Makes You Forget which was released through Ninja Tunes. This mix explores various fascets of electronic music from deep techno vibes from the onset track through to disco house and a splash of Acid, because who doesn’t like Acid?

Subjoi – Waves Mix 19

Not a lot is known about Subjoi, other than he’s an Australian Dj/producer from Adelaide who’s well in-tune with the lo-fi house scene right now and his tunes are seriously nice. His tune The Way I feel is 7 minutes and 45 seconds of pure face melting luxury, and it’s been on repeat. This mix showcases his influences with underground house, UKG, and few 2 step bangers thrown in the middle for good measure.

Helena Hauff – Crack Magazine Mix 200

Based in Hamburg, Helena Hauff is a German techno DJ and producer and, straight up, this mix originally made for Crack Magazine is gritty as it is grim, and it’s awesome.  Sitting around 138 BPM for most of the duration of the mix, Helena eases the you in with some dark and sparse sounding techno, whilst constantly dangling the carrot in front of the listener with more industrial, acid, post punk and EBM. If you’re a fan of techno, this comes highly recommended.

Toni Yotzi – Golden Plains 2018 – Saturday Closing Set

From the onset of this mix, you know you’re in for good time. Hell it gives us serious fomo that we weren’t there for this at Golden Plains. Toni Yotzi, Melbourne based dj and presenter on Triple R radio, moves through an eclectic selection of dance music, from dancehall, to house, global bass to techno, disco to Baltimore club – it’s all in there. Notable moment is at 49.25 mark when Yotzi drops Nightmare by Brainbug, instantly hitting you right in the nostalgic ’90s club feels. Good times.

Orion Anakaris – HJ Blends #38 Brooklyn Radio

Hiphop and Rnb heads we got you with this. Orion Anakaris is a London, UK based DJ beatmaker and founder of the HardJazz7 Music Netlabel. This mix takes you on a luscious journey of jazzy hiphop and soul featuring many new singles from many new artists.
