Solid Steel (23rd February) In Hour 1 we welcome Marcel Vogel who runs the Lumberjacks in Hell label, which has his 'Brown Curls' and 'If You like' 12" releases forthcoming over the next couple of months. He told us;
"One of my earliest influences as a DJ and record collector has been Journeys By DJ: Coldcut - 70 Minutes Of Madness. Almost naturally that led to digging into the early DJ Food Jazz Breaks. That's over 20 years ago. From there I have departured into house and later into Disco and Funk. Around 2004 Madvillainy resparked my interest in Hip Hop and Rap. I suppose living in Berlin from 2003-2007 and being exposed to Jazzanova and their extended circles exposed me to somewhat a more ecclectic approach of Djing, cominbining Nujazz and breaks and everything that's available from the palette of dancemusic. And to round it up my relocation to Amsterdam in 2010 is also my most recent and on going step of evolution as a collector and DJ. In a time where every DJ seems to be able to bang it out and play every aspect of rare leftfield music at the same time. The development of the internet, the availability of music literally without limits and the possibilities of CDJ's and USB sticks made it so much more interesting and rewarding to be part of the nightlife and share musical stories with the world. In 2018, and that's the bubble I live in, every Doner Kebab vendour, every shoe store and every bar seem to have access to the coolest Spotify list and the craziest mixes on soundcloud and mixcloud. The unheard is being unearthed with a much faster pace. Common nerd-knowledge is shared on a global level like viruses in 12 Monkeys. Youtube and Boiler Room and online radio stations can't keep any secrets for long. It's wonderful, it's competetive and it creates forms of unity and belonging. I suppose we have been dreaming of this. To be pulled down a rabbit hole of music that doesnt know any limits or boarders. That was the promise when I started to buy records and it has been fulfilled beyond my wildest dreams. Maybe we'll encounter a sort of hangover at some point but at the moment it looks like we'll just keep re-disovering only madder and madder forgotten tunes from all corners of the world.
And this is what this mix is about. Heritage, belonging, unity. My family and my bonds have been created in our common passion for this sort of music. Call it freestyle if you want. Call it Disco. Or rare groove. Most days I dont have a name for it. But it is still exciting and it makes me get up every day and do my research. Online and in the record stores. Who knew there was seemingly no end to it?"
