YENI joins out Fresh Kicks mix series with slickly blended collection of cerebral techno.
The Leipzig act crafts heady productions that are more-often-than-not subtle in their approach — atmospheric crescendos, entrancing basslines, et al. — yet always 100 percent club-ready.
There’s a techno rave happening in a 1000-year-old castle ruin this summer.

Dan Jugle, the influential, Chicago-based techno and experimental artist, died this past weekend.
Matias Aguayo’s Cómeme label is one like no other. Over the course of the past decade the prolific imprint has championed electronic music of a particular, playful strand. From the clattering, goofy, drum laden jams of Aguayo himself, Christian S, DJs Pareja and
Ana Helder to the darker, menacing club turns of rRoxymore and Carisma, there is an unmistakable zeal throughout the label’s catalogue. Even in its murkiest depths, like on Lena Willikens’ ‘Phantom Delia’, the darkness is something menacing and relished in rather than brooded over and idealised.
Regal is up front about most things. As a musician, the Madrid-based DJ/producer – real name Gabriel Cassina – has spent the past six years or so rocketing to the peak of the European techno scene owing to his propulsive and relentless sets and productions. Already boasting a hefty back catalog of EPs and singles – most of which have been released through his own Involve Records – his twists and turns through big-room techno forms with healthy dashes of acid have earned him a formidable reputation across the board.
Charlotte de Witte has become somewhat of an unstoppable force in the techno-sphere in the past couple of years. The Belgian DJ/producer – who was DJ Mag’s UK cover star in September 2017 – has persistently gone from strength to strength thanks to her all-enveloping main room techno sets and penchant for deep, hypnotic production.
Phase Fatale is set to officially debut on Ostgut Ton, Berghain’s in-house record label, with his ‘Reverse Fall’ EP, set for release 13th July.
The new EP, which sees Phase Fatale taking a slightly more techno-centric direction, is inspired by the controversial 1973 novel Crash by J. G. Ballard, which features a main character who fetishizes car crashes.
