RESIDENT’S PICKS | MERCAL SELECTS FAVORITE ANCIENT METHODS MIX.
With a night honoring the darker edge of Techno, the sound of German DJ & producer Ancient Methods fits like a glove. Radion’s Mercal is a big fan of Ancient Methods’ work. We took the opportunity to ask Mercal about his favorite mix by the underground noisemaker, his passion for the sound Ancient Methods emulates & his expectations for the night.
What’s your favorite Ancient Methods podcast? And why?
This mix on Brvtalism by Ancient Methods is definitely one of my overall favorites. There’s something about the eerie atmosphere and fearsome crunch that makes this mix stand out from the rest. I like how it shows the versatility of Ancient Methods as a DJ: throughout the one and a half hour journey the sound resonates around the boundaries of EBM, industrial and straight forward raw-edged Techno. This versatility, together with his bomb packed discography, puts Ancient Methods amongst my favorite artists.
What are you looking forward to for the night?
I’m expecting a night filled with a wide array of dark electronics at its very best – raw and powerful, without sacrificing quality or care. I’ve been looking forward to this night for quite a long time. The sound of Ancient Methods perfectly fits with the concept I’m pushing at RADION, which is called Second Wave. This night will serve as a dark haunting introduction to the serie of Second Wave nights that will be emerging from RADION. If you’re into pitch black techno war funk, this is where you want to be.
