The number of DJ’s empassioned about Vinyl and Techno music these days is in decline. At the same time there’s also something very special about the ritual of packing a crate of records before a gig. It pushes a DJ to know their music really well. When you only settle for the best, you have to go to the record store (or shop online) and pick up the good stuff, mainly because it’s available on vinyl. This is a list of current, relevant releases as selected by me. You can point out the ones I missed out in the comments section below.
1. PRIVATE PRESS – Part One (Jasper Wolff & Maarten Mittendorff / Resocords) – Indigo Aera Holland
2. TATO/TIJN – UNB 007 – Unblock
3. DYING & BARAKAT – El Sueno De Una Teoria EP – Knotweed France
4. ESOX LUCIUS – Esox Lucius EP – Mirror Trax Holland
5. TRP – Things Won’t Change – Lobster Theremin
6. ADRYIANO – Me & You & Her EP (Jamie 3:26) – Heist Recordings Netherlands
7. SUNE – Butter Love EP – Better Listen US
8. CHEZUS – Special – Beer

10. CLERIC/SETAOC MASS/TRUNCATE/VICTOR SANTANA – INV019 – Involve Spain
Before I go, I do suggest you support the artists whose music I weave together, by buying their music directly – all of my mixes have full track listings so you can support the artists by purchasing the tracks individually – you can listen & purchase tracks directly on Mixcloud or Juno Download
Andreas Marouchos (Short, Rouchos), is a DJ from Toronto. Playing Techno and House, Andreas has been a professional DJ since 1998, playing sets in four countries. He is also a podcasting pioneer, with live audio and video mixes stretching as far back as the last millennium. Despite the progress of technology, Andreas still collects and spins 100% of music on Vinyl as he believes that “putting a laptop between a DJ and the crowd seems boring”.
Since You’re Here …
… I have a small favour to ask. Did you know it can take me up to 8 hours to curate, master, edit, upload and share my weekly podcasts? That’s a full day of work but I am happy to share my vinyl collection with audiences.
Unfortunately, I am also an adult, and maintaining my gear, turntables and records do carry expenses. So I have setup my virtual tip jar searching for a coffee. I didn’t set up a Patreon page to make a living, or get rich, rather, I’ve setup my Patreon with the intention of using it as a channel to reach out to my followers and fans.
If making a recurring donation on Patreon is too much of a long-term commitment, perhaps buying me a coffee suits your budget. Click here to donate a few dollars using Paypal, otherwise, my future would be much more secure if you were to become a Patron by clicking the orange button below.
