FM033: Nick Höppner Y2K UKG MIX

The champagne-tinged, Moschino clad sound of UKG may have filled the clubs and late-night bars of London from the late-90s and went on to become a cornerstone of British dance music, but at the turn of the millennium over in Hamburg, Ostgut Ton’s Nick Höppner was pioneering the sound in a city known for it’s techno. At the time, Höppner formed part of the UKG crew Tune, picking up rare records and dubplates in London and throwing weekly garage raves in Hamburg’s red light district.

Decades have passed since that time of Hennessey fuelled revelry. Höppner has gone on to become a linchpin of Berlin’s underground and is now fronting a new label imprint Touch From A Distance. But UKG never dies, and thanks to a rediscovered plastic bag full of minidiscs nearly 20 years old we have Höppner’s Y2K mix, a rarely heard homage to garage grooves from the German selector that pays tribute to this foundation sound. Pull up.

Nick: “I‘ve recently borrowed a minidisc player from a friend and went through a plastic bag full minidiscs, which has previously collected the dust of seven different flats since the turn of the millennium. Amongst them I found this mix here which I must have recorded at some point in 2000 in my Hamburg bed room. At that time I’ve been part of the Tune crew and we were running a weekly UK Garage night at the Lounge, a club in the heart of Hamburg’s redlight district. I was also still working as a music journalist for Groove Magazine and going to London frequently, where I had access to a lot of UKG records which never even made it out of the UK (or London). Stupidly, though, I sold the biggest chunk of that collection sometime in 2006, but here is a little time capsule documenting my (ongoing) love for this music. Enjoy!”

Sir Hiss – Outlook Mix Series 2018

Next up in our 2018 Mix Series comes Jeff Emmott aka Sir Hiss. Hailing from Bristol – a city that’s often best-known for its Drum and Bass and Dubstep scenes, the 20 year old DJ and producer is the pioneer of a unique sound and style of Bristol born Grime production that draws inspiration from across the musical spectrum.
Thanks to a vast knowledge and appreciation for all kinds of music, the South West based beat maker is putting out instantly-recognisable tracks that sample pretty much everything including old-school Grime, Jungle, Drum and Bass as well as unexpected sounds from the middle-east and beyond. Hiss’s DJ sets are quick, choppy with the faders, and jammed full of the freshest dubs, alongside certified classics and rare refixes from the vast archive he has built over the years.
