Berlin DJ collective and training program No Shade has been on our radar for some time now, so we couldn't be more excited to get DJ and collective member AUCO on board for our 'Selected By' series.
No Shade are the masterminds behind creating a more colourful Berlin club scene by promoting diverse line-ups and safe spaces to learn for female, trans and non-binary DJs. Alongside this work, AUCO has founded Infinite Quest, which similarly brings local artists together through parties to create a better, more inclusive club scene.
As for AUCO's selections and mixes, they drop deconstructed club sounds into a blender and make music space cakes with the ingredients. Jungle, cosmic breaks, garage, pounding techno... you name it, it'll come up at some point. And you're guaranteed to move every time.
With all that said, it shouldn't come as a surprise that we asked AUCO to provide five releases they've been digging lately. This is a good one.
Boylan - Renegade
Neana - Top of the Chops
Grandmixxer - Balcony Classics 3
Gabber Modus Operandi - HOXXXYA
Scratch DVA - DRMTRK VII
Thank you to AUCO for sending over these insane releases - we hope you've found a new favourite from these. And if you're after more goodness from the London/Berlin DJ, you should definitely check out their Soundcloud here.
