Brandon Rosenbluth aka xorzyzt, a well-known and pervasive force in Berlin’s dark underworld, is a busy man —- producing events, djing and touring alongside BlackBlackGold and Tom Ass as UnReaL; playing in bands reliq and Shaddah Tuum; booking European tours for littlebig Agency; engaging in video and performance art of the ‘metaphysical, shamanistic thread’; all while launching two new labels: Portals Editions (with Niko Shaddah Lfo, Ketev, and Marijn Degenaar), and UnReaL Audio, which just saw its first release with Born in Flamez. During our stay in Berlin last year, we caught him djing Stattbad & playing with his band at Berghain within our first few nights, and he remained a constant presence from there, throwing parties featuring House of Ladosha, ITAL, Stellar Om Source, and Light Asylum, to name a few.

Hot on the heels of a US tour (including a stop at our beloved Bossa Nova), this is the set he put together and fine tuned on the road: “In my signature style, I’ve consistently layered a number of tracks on top of one another including layers of drones and ambience in order to create an impenetrable wall of body-obliterating techno bliss.” From the first whispers of “what am i doing here?” we knew we were in for a ride, and as expected, this mix perfectly demonstrates his ability to drag you through the darkest corners of hell and still leave you gasping for more.

Brandon’s new project Shaddah Tuum’s EP dropped last week on his label Portals Editions, you can have a listen here.

WM Mix & Interview: Jan Woo

To celebrate our 4-year anniversary, we are re-launching our mix series and highlighting some of our favorite artists/selectors.

WEIRD MAGIC Mix Series: Jan Woo by Weirdmagic on Mixcloud

[ download ]

Jan Woo is Brooklyn’s best kept secret. Meticulous curator of all musical genres trance-inducing, his impeccable filter has landed him gigs alongside Juan Atkins and a festival-closing set at Sustain-Release. A Jan Woo track is one that stays close to your heart, and this mix is one you can put on and dance to start to finish, knowing you’re in good hands.

Up until now, unless you’ve caught one of his dj sets in the flesh, it is unlikely that you’ve gotten to experience the Woo, but this mix is a perfect distillation/introduction: one amazing tune after another — most that you probably would never find — and then a surprise blend like “Makin’ A Living” into Mr. Fingers “Can You Feel It”, that makes you want to cry. Thankfully, Jan has more in store for the world: He is prepping his first 12″ for Greek label Echovolt which includes “Whyfor” (below), a dancefloor stunner, and he’s got a new label Tripper Disc in the works, with an upcoming reissue/compilation of the appropriately-named obscure New Age band, Woo. Some things can only be kept tight for so long…

We spoke to Jan at home at Body Actualized Center in BK…
