We’ve been big fans of KRL for a while now, from first hearing his fantastic remix of J Phlip’s Fever, to his unbelievably amazing mixtape for Corsica Studios night Tief (also another WANARB favourite). His remix of Autodeep – Gonna Make you Mine was stuck in our head for months upon end. We’ve finally managed to pin down the elusive and enigmatic man down for a chat and what better time for it, as Tief takes over Room 2 at Fabric for the bank holiday edition of regular Sunday night WetYourSelf…
The man on everyone’s after-party playlist, Daniel Bortz, returns to London town this weekend as part of a much hyped showcase for his current label Suol. WANARB favourites Tief, have brought key members of the label over to coincide with the end of the Suol World Series that saw Bortz in Brazil, Fritz Kalkbrenner in China, Tricksi in Mexico and Chopstick & Johnjon in Europe. We caught up with him ahead of his set at Corsica Studios this weekend to find out about the scene in his hometown of Ausberg in Germany, how he goes about creating his tracks and what he’d save in a fire…
What with it getting dark around 4:30pm and everyone saving their pennies for Christmas, there’s a definite feel of hibernation in the air. You can moan all you like about how boring that is, but actually we’re all benefiting hugely from that. It seems every dj/producer and their dog has locked themselves away with a crate full of exclusives and made sick free mixtapes for us to enjoy. Seriously, the amount of aaaaaamazing mixtapes and podcasts full of banging tunes floating about the blog-o-sphere sent to warm our hearts and ears, all thanks to the kindness of our favourite artists…. it’s bordering on ridiculous.
Okay, in reality it’s more like they’re keenly aware we’re all hibernating too and need new beats to power us through the horrible morning commute or pound along on the treadmill to, and are just buttering us up in time for the Christmas/New Years party season so that we’re desperate to see them play by then.
With *so* many good’uns to listen to, it’s getting hard to pick out what’s merely good and what’s abso-fucking-lutely amazing. However, this KRL mix for new deep-house night Tief at Corsica Studios will blow your mind. For those unaware, KRL is responsible for this utterly delicious remix of J Phlip’s Fever, and this mix is just as likely to make you break out in a huge grin each time it drops, only, with a mix this long, it’ll be many many times over.
Let’s get this straight. The Tief mix wasn’t named Resident Advisor’s mix of the day last week for no good reason. It is just *too good*. With tracks from Axel Boman, Tensnake, A1 Bassline and Huxley, plus a few choice KRL remixes; in turns havin’ it, in turns soulful; chances are you’ll revisit this mix more than a few times. Download link beneath the Soundcloud player, track listing is after the jump.

It’s now my firm belief that there is no friendlier night in London than Trouble Vision. It’s so rare to go out and experience an evening where your drinks stay unspilled, your toes stay un-stomped and you don’t get barged past in the bogs. I chatted to people in the queue to get in, outside having cigarettes, at the bar and even inside the club bang next to the speaker. Literally everyone I spoke to was nice and welcoming and proper sound. The atmosphere the Trouble Vision crew create is something quite unique for London, and actually something special.
Combine this with their consistently good lineups and what you get is a loyal following of regular goers. Being a Trouble Vision virgin myself, I was totally unaware of this and, in all honesty, with it being at Corsica Studios, was expecting a pretty standard Elephant-And-Castle level of crazy attitude. So glad to be proved wrong.
The night is somewhat of a blur in all honesty. I know what I saw was really good, even if I can’t tell you exactly what tracks were played. What I can tell you about is that warm fuzzing feeling you get after a fantastic night out. What I can say is that it’s one of the best nights out I’ve had in a while. What I can do is recommend that you get down to Trouble Vision and find out for yourself how awesome it is.
If that glowing reference doesn’t satisfy you then I’d advise you to head over to Tensnake’s Official Website and signup to download his latest free mix. It’s really rather good. I’d also strongly suggest you give Lee Foss’ latest podcast a whirl. He claims it was delivered to him by “B6 the Backwards Motion Robot” and mixed by a future version of himself at a Hot Natured Party on Saturn in the year 2082. There are so many standout tunes on this mix, from Luca C & Brigante feat Ali Love – Morals (Clockwork remix), to Slowhands – Belle Of The Ball and to the superb moment that Agoria’s remix of Inner City’s Big Fun kicks in; you can see why he’s said it was an extra-terrestrial “classics set from the early 2000’s”. Download it now for instant lushness.

Trouble Vision have been steadily building a solid reputation as one of Corsica Studios standout nights and their summer session this Saturday 11th June promises to be an absolute blinder. Lee Foss followed by Tensnake will be the obvious highlights with both acts being pretty massive at the moment, but Room 2 will definitely be worth a look in with Space Dimension Controller headlining.
