We premier Japanese techno DJ and producer Ayako Mori’s contribution to the 10-year anniversary compilation of Berlin queer collective and label ‘Gegen’ with her track ‘Shrine Of Gegen’.
Ayako Mori track is a crunchy industrial banger, driving drums and a menacing lead synth make for the perfect peak time DJ tool. The tense walkyrie style track is synonymous with Berlin and looks to be a guaranteed floor filler within the coming months.
The Gegen resident is on the rise as she is on the back of a release with Volume Berlin records and a recent remix on ‘Dave The Drummers’ established ‘Hydraulix’ label.
The first volume of the three-part compilation features heavy hitters Ellen Alien, Bloody Mary, Oliver Deutschman, P.E.A.R.L and more. We look forward to getting stuck into all the tracks as we can promise, it’s one of the biggest compilations of the year and we will be premiering a track from each volume.
Celebrating 10 years of existence, Gegen will showcase their past decade of parties into a newly founded label by showcasing the artists that have been at the heart of the infamous party series.
The compilation is built on a sonic narrative arc, with releases growing harder,faster and harsher, mimicking the progression of a Gegen party. Gegen will be releasing the 3 parts every two weeks. Gegen invite listeners and friends old and new to a month long journey through the Gegen sound.
