Powder Exorcising Daily Demons. Japanese producer Moko Shibata, aka Powder, explained her 2015 EP, Highly, as a way to “exorcize her daily demons” from a “bland office building where her day is consumed by the electronics industry.” Her mix on New York’s Beats In Space radio show is a therapeutic dancefloor session full of melancholy and escapism. Stream above.
Young Male In Session. New York-based techno and downtempo artist Young Male’s hour-long In Session mix for Mixmag is an hour of “heads-down, jack-knife slammers recorded in one take.” He explains that “the goal was to create a full speed ahead rave techno journey, punctuated by moments of trance, acid, and polyrhythms”.
