UV Podcast 101 & Interview – Sneaker
  
90 minutes of a trip

The mix originates from our annual “Uncanny Valley Betriebsweihnachtsfeier” in December last year but due to too much distortion, you re-recorded it afterwards. What did you have in mind for the original set and how did it evolve in the process afterwards?

The set was supposed to weave psychedelic leftfield tendencies, 80s extravaganza with classic Ron Hardy style and acid madness. In the DAW I pretty much reassembled the distorted recording …

1h mix of Valencian Bakalao
  
So Get Up : Ed Isar invite Sneaker DJ

Listen back to the So Get Up show hosted by Ed Isar from September 28th, 2020 on RinseFM. Ed is busy as a label manager for Musique Pour La Danse (with Oliver from Mental Groove), Remember430 and Tursiops, head of 33RPM +8% (webzine + Paris parties)

The 1st hour is Ed’s show – the 2nd hour is my guest mix of Bakalao tracked down directly from the Ruta Destroy.

My two cents:

This is Bakalao. An ode to cheap synths and digital drum machines. Sweet melodies go deep.
All vinyl! Besides the one track that I had to slow down by more than 8% and a demo by myself – exclusive & unreleased, of course. :]
I close with a millenium classic by FPU, which I was rediscovering during the lockdown solitude. It’s a cover of the 1987 Jan Hammer hymn ‘Crockett’s Theme’. So it fits the era the mix is referring to.

Sneaker – The Beat Poet EP /FTVR07
  on From The Vaults Records

The Beat Poet is dropping 4 cuts of lyrical patterns and mad wizardry on JenZi’s ‘From The Vaults’ label. Following Sneaker’s EP’s of ‘Meet The Heat’ and ‘Rhythm Composer’, we have here another exercise in drum programming and syncopated rhythms. Groove and acid. Drama, culmination and relief.

Serial Error – Afro Gothic EP /RAT18
  on Rat Life Records
  
out July 20th

Serial Error was founded as a New Beat project when Jacob Korn was asked for a submission to the ‘Our Beat Is Still New’ compilation series on the Belgian We Play House label in late 2014. Knowing the retro-experienced skills of his label mates from Uncanny Valley, he teamed up with Credit 00 & Sneaker and they produced Drum Abuse, a track that finally became the cue for their first full 12” maxi single in 2018 on Rat Life Records; a label curated by Credit 00.

Sneaker on Mutant Radio
  
Chicago house and more
    Watch on Facebook!

Living room life! (quoting a dear friend)
Recorded for Mutant Radio in Mai 2020 at Mike Tansella Jr.‘s place.
Mixing vinyl only – stylistically ranging from Chicago house to a more loose ending. Only lately I got the Uncanny Valley002. So I am starting off the mix with C-Beams – Thumbling (Break SL + Sandrow M). Virgo vibes.
Close to the end I play an electro vocoder track from the test pressing of the upcoming Serial Error (Jacob Korn, Credit 00 & me) – Afro Gothic EP on Rat Life Records.


Thx to Mutant Radio & Mike Tansella Jr. for the opportunity!
