I’d say todays mix choose is a lazy selection…. cause it comes from the soundcloud account I grab everything from and have yet to be disappointed with the results. So yeah I’m lazy… and this is pretty fucking awesome

ROD is the incarnation of Dutch multi talent Benny Rodrigues. For the last four years it is a moniker that has found the Dutchman exploring supple, fulsome techno sounds with a healthy dose of funk. To date his functional characterful EPs have come on labels like Klockworks, Field Records and CLR. Intense and absorbing, it is music that’s informed by a rich tradition but that never sounds pastiche. His DJ sets are equally aimless affairs, and so it is that we tapped him up for our next podcast.

Just over an hour in length, the mix is a serene, tripped out and intergalactic one full of slithering electro lines and dreamy pads. There is a fluidity throughout the first half that comes only after years of practice, and even when things grow more physical and frazzled, acid laced and macho in the latter stages, there is still a great sense of control. It might be Monday, but sounds like this will surely have you out of your chair in no time.



But wait there’s more!

The intimate Selectors stage proves every year that it is one of the most popular spots at Dekmantel Festival. Eight of the sets that have been played this year are now available. Relive the magic moments that arose under the willow tree with sets from Motor City Drum Ensemble, Solar, Mike Servito, Carlos Souffront, Sterac Electronics, Volcov, San Proper, and Orpheu The Wizard.

Grab them all, go on I dares ya *insert evil laugh*
