Episode #15 of our Rave Atlas Mix Series comes courtesy of Sylvie Maziarz.
In her own simple words
"I am what I produce"
Almost no sentence describes the Berlin based artist better. 
At a tender age of 14 she already displayed a great interest in recording and playing a variety of melodies and rhythms. 
Her passion for techno transformed her into DJ and attracted a diverse audience that ranged from techno enthusiasts to first time raving tourists .
Sometimes playful, sometimes trippy or straight up techno , her sets are always have the same effect.
A pulsating, sweating hard dancefloor.
This is the Sylvie Maziarz effect.
In the beginning of 2015 her first production “Flush of Anger” came out digitally on “Bassnation Records”. The ambiance between the dark bass and alluring melody elements made it a special release.
In Summer 2017 will be the first vinyl released called "Crew love is true love“.
Sylvie has already performed at clubs in Europe, Asia & Africa, and that's only the beginning.
There is no signs of her stepping down any time soon.
Here is 90 minutes of her signature techno vibes with music from:
Ø [Phase], Adam Beyer, Bjarki, CJ Bolland, David Moleon, Dax J, Ewa Justka, Falling Apart, iFormat, I Hate Models, Inhalt Der Nacht, Manni Dee, Miss Djax, NRTHC, Patrick DSP, Paul Mac, Quentin Ravn, Remco Beekwilder, RVDE, RX-101, The Advent and Underwood.

For Episode #13 of our Mix Series, our brothers and sisters we are proud to present you one of the founding fathers of rave culture, the iconic Danny Rampling.
Danny was one of the original ‘Superstar DJs’ and remains a true pioneer and visionary of the global dance scene.
Through his legendary 80s acid house club Shoom and renowned radio shows on BBC Radio 1 and Kiss FM, Danny became a catalyst that helped to shape the UK (& global) dance scene right from the early days.
Danny Rampling has held residencies at storied Ibiza clubs such as Pacha, Amnesia, and Privilege.
It is fair to say that he changed the musical landscape of the White Isle (and back home in the UK) in so many ways.
Things would be very different if it was not for his vision, passion and forward thinking mentality.
Ever since getting the nod as the Number 1 DJ in DJ Mag’s first ever and still famous Top 100 Poll in 1991 , Danny Rampling never stopped evolving and being at the forefront of the global music scene.
In December 2017 Rampling’s pioneering club night Shoom celebrated their 30th anniversary with a monumental event at London’s Pulse club. 
Shoom returned to Amsterdam’s Paradiso for a fantastic New Year’s celebration in 2018, and will be taken to clubs around the world throughout 2019.

Here is a 2 hours long masterclass of house, Tech House, Deep House, & techno music, with tracks from:

Eagles, Todd Terry & Louie Vega, Cajmere, Matthew Dear, Joe Goddard, Eats Everything,Jamie Jones, Butch, Darius Syrossian, Floorplan , Bushwacka Robbie Rivera, Dj Oji, Dj Spen, Mark Broom, Teddy Pendergrass,Gene Farris, Angel Moraes, Saliva Commandos, Disco Headz, Men At work, Silvio Del Gado, El Funkador, and Josh Caff.

Episode #10 of our Mix Series comes courtesy of Dj Wislov.

Influenced and amazed by electronic music that came out between late 80s and early 90s (mainly hardcore, jungle, acid house & techno), it was 1994 that he started dj’ing and making his own music.

It took him almost two decades of hard work and focus, until couple of his tracks were officially included in the Shot In The Mind Vol.2 & 3 Various Artists compilations, released through Island Connection & No Press Records, in 2011.

Releases on established labels on the hardcore breaks scene, like Strictly Nu - Skool, Sonic Fortress and Kode5 Recordings followed, leading to 2014 and the creation of his own digital only imprint, Ravenoyz Recordings, that operated until 2017.

His dedication and hard work resulted in Wislow being exclusive signed by the iconic Kniteforce Records group of labels, where he belongs up to this day.

His debut was the “From Russia Wislov EP” on Knitebreed.

Dj Wislov always had an affection for oldskool breaks, 90’s hardcore and jungle beats with DJ Seduction, Luna-C, Skanna, Intense, Acen, Nebula 2 & The Prodigy being his main influences.

Here is 90 minutes of his signature sound, full of breakbeats, amen breaks, piano riffs and euphoric vocals with tracks from:

Dj Luna - C, Alk-e-d, Demcore, Clayfighter, Gothica Shade, Dj Jedi, Sayan, Pete Cannon, TNO Project and Wislov himself.

Rave Atlas Mix Series EP 08

D'Arcangelo - Rome, Italy

Our brothers and sisters in vibe, for Episode #8 of our Mix Series we are thrilled to present you D'Arcangelo.

There are a lot of contemporary electronic music makers that wish they had just one release on Rephlex Records.

They are getting excited if Aphex Twin includes one of their tracks in his mixes.

D'Arcangelo have released 5 long players, and 2 e.p's on Rephlex Records, and their tracks are included in Aphex Twin sets regularly, for 25 years more or less.

Fabrizio and Marco D'Arcangelo are undisputedly one of the best, if not the top  one, IDM/Braindance production and live performance outfits that ever came out of Italy.. 

Although getting into production since 1992, it's was after two years, 1994, that the first releases came out on "Hot Trax" under the "Centuria City" alias, and on "Out Of Orbit" as "Autonomia Division".

1994 is the year that the first long player titled "Alternative Fluid", was released on "Disturbance" , with the duo using their "Monomorph" moniker. 

Couple of releases followed as "D Duo" on "Boreal' before D'Arcangelo unveiled themselves to the world with the same name iconic, plain gold sleeved, e.p on Rephlex  Records, for those that don't know owned by Aphex Twin himself and Grant Wilson.

Also 1996 saw the birth of "Molecular Recordings" and the duo flexing their skills on dancefloor orientated techno sounds as "Intermolecular Forces", both joint projects with Marco Lenzi.

The D'Arcangelo brothers were one of  the founding fathers of the Braindance movement, and developed a unique experimental electronic sound, that influenced and still influences IDM & Electronica music makers up to this present day.

With releases lately on Suction Records, Analogical Force, Happy Skull & Furthur Electronix, there is no sign of D'Arcangelo stepping down from music making.

This 90 minutes exclusive mix comes with tracks from:

Phono Ghosts, Kinesthesia, Octavcat, Ceephax, Arpanet, Ochre, Rzeng, Balil, Aleksi Perala, John Foxx and The Maths, Bochum Welt, The Tuss, Stretta, Listening Centre, bossFYTE, VAETXH, Brainwaltzera, FFT, Ilkae, Solvent, Alan Codger Project, Secede, Ask Koosha, The Flashbulb, Lusine, Ariadne’s Labyrinth, Karsten Pflum, Venetian Snares, RWD & Morphology.

In D’Arcangelo’s own words:

“This is our eclectic, sometime short, sometime longer, cryptic and uncnventional mix with no logic, but with a couple of 'one odd out', one famous, one not yet...definitely not the usual techno fixed beat bits....is simply us”

Haven’t you pressed play yet?

First Episode in Rave Atlas Mix Series appears courtesy of WAYNETTE.
What her sets sound like?
Mind bending ravey techno is an understatement. 
If Jeff Mills remixed Caustic Window or the other way around, probably would sound like this. 
In her own words the artist says the  main influences in her sound come from her early raving days, when she was mainly attending warehouse psychedelic trance, drum n bass and hardcore/gabber parties.
The Berlin based dj/producer has already built a reputation in the German capital’s underground circuit, performing at some of the city’s most underground raves.
Production wise she is part of the Supply Records and also A&R for Favela Noir Records , a label that just restored operations for 2019.

And least but not last she is one of the core members of the Rave Atlas family.
It cant get any ravier than this mix , and we could not be happier sharing it with our global raving family. With tracks from  Ayarcana,  Cressida, EDMX, Fallhaber, Iliar, Inhalt Der Nacht, Kris Goad, Lars Huismann, Mab, Manni Dee, Metapattern, N.A.A.F.I, OGUZ, Opal, Pier, Savagery, Sensive, Sorn, Torgue, and Waynette herself this is not a mix for the faint hearted.
