Sweeping, emotional and shadowy DJ sets reveal everything about Abdulla Rashim, the secretive Swede. Abdulla Rashim and Varg’s Stockholm-based Northern Electronics brings together, like no other platform in contemporary music, the best in shadowy techno, mesmerising ambient and rusty metallic industrial sounds. Submerged in both rhythm and mystery, Abdulla Rashim‘s shadowy aesthetic floats in balance with his uncompromising work. Wholly dedicated to his ideas and sound, Rashim‘s quest for renewal and the importance of his craft has reflected well both internationally and locally, where he is praised alike. We also welcome back Stockholm’s Acronym, a strength-gaining member of Abdulla Rashim’s Northern Electronics bandcamp. With the intensity of his relentless, cutting-edge sounds, so brilliantly explored in his Dimensional Exploration series, to the stripped bare and excellent demo track 02 on our label – a step further is Acronym‘s set that simply mesmerizes. He has now shown himself to be a prolific producer of deep, percussive techno by continuously releasing EP’s and remixes. Refracted has released some of his dub-techno on lables such as Connwax and Silent Season. Deep rhythms and atmospheric elements have always played a major role in Refracted‘s music. Be it through hypnotic grooves or mesmerising soundscapes, the journey is always assured. The Globus Floor: Ray Kajioka is a German techno producer, DJ and live performer since 1995. He is well-known for his work on Kanzleramt Music, Rotation Records, MakTub, Müller Records, as well as his remixes for names like Dave Clarke, Pawas, Joel Mull and Beroshima.
