mnml ssgs mx28: yuka
mx28 comes from yuka, a russian dj and producer associated with the excellent fullpanda records. after being blown away by the sounds of her labelmate, dasha rush, when i saw yuka was tied to fullpanda i thought she was definitely worth checking. i downloaded some of her mixes and was all set to give them a listen. then, for whatever reason, i got distracted and they got buried and i didn't give them the attention they deserved. until a few weeks ago. after playing at a fullpanda party in berlin, cio d'or said yuka had played a great set and suggested i check her out. a recommendation from cio goes a long way in my books. so i immediately put on the mixes i had from yuka. and then spent the rest of the afternoon rocking out to them. unsurprisingly cio was right. yuka can definitely spin. after that, the rest was ssg history. lucky for us yuka agreed to do a mix and what she came up with is exactly what i was hoping for - some quality deep, tripping techno. what i really like about this mix is yuka keeps a careful check on the BPMs, never getting too fast, but she still gives it some power with the whole set having a really nice drive to it. yuka has provided us with a carefully built mix of quality sounds.
