Don’t Panic Berlin
Mix 8

Our eighth mix comes courtesy of Berlin-based american-born DJ Lōtic. His fast, dirty, bass-heavy sets are anything but predictable, with elements as distinct as Trap, Baile Funk, Grime, Vogue House; in his own words “From streets all around the world… Anything with grit and dramatic subbass”. Lōtic is a producer himself with an academic musical training, which might explain his open-minded tastes and critical approach to the way he plays records. His productions can be found on his soundcloud, with work from last year’s EP #FEELINGS, which received a pretty nice review on Dummy.  Lōtic is a resident at one of Berlin’s most exciting new nights Janus, where you can catch his next set at Turbine (Glogauerstrasse 2) on 1st December alongside DJ Marfox. Also watch out for his single on Sci-Fi and Fantasy due for release on January 15th, and an EP due later next year on Dutty Artz.

This mix is entitled ‘Pictures Isn’t Necessary’, and is exactly the wake-up call we need for the weekend. We’ll leave you with a few words from the man himself:

“I primarily DJ for myself. I play what I want to hear in the way I’d want to hear it. And I’d much rather introduce people to something they maybe haven’t heard/heard of before instead of something they could read about on XLR8R.”
