KOMPAS AUDIO | Selection Process 6 @Command_Strange | @VRECORDINGS Video link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KzYw7gAkStk&t=432s ___ In 2017, Command Strange is one of Drum and Bass’ most exciting, unique artists. Now based in Russia, St Petersburg, the producer also known as Alexey Fuifanov, has found himself on some of the scene’s most important labels; from Metalheadz, Good Looking Recordings and Hospital - all the way to the mighty V Recordings where he is now signed exclusively. And the reason? Simply put, Command Strange is one of the most versatile producers we have today. Whatever the label, Command Strange seems to produce banger after banger, fusing his classic jungle, jump-up and soul inspirations into a musical and original whole. Now 7 years deep into his craft, the Command Strange name has become a byword for guaranteed vibes and musicality. So where did it begin? After trying his hand at jungle from the age of 7, it wasn’t long before a 16 year old Alexey had attracted the attention of the scene’s most influential tastemakers, with everyone from LTJ Bukem and DJ Marky to Friction, London Elektricity and JJ Frost giving the young producer the thumbs up. Since then, Command Strange has gone from strength to strength - and that’s one of the reasons why he’s often in the studio with AI. The skillful partnership has proved to be like alchemy, with the guys releasing the huge vocal number ‘Won’t Say Goodbye’ featuring Mc Tali and solo single ‘Brand New Style’ featuring MC Fats on V Recordings - as well as the massive, rolling single with ‘Mad One’ and ‘Broken Grounds’ ft. Jamakabi on Goldie’s Metalheadz label. In 2016, Command Strange signs to V Recordings, and it represents the ultimate fit for the Russian producer. Still one of the most respected labels in the game, V Recordings remains at the forefront of Drum & Bass, while staying true to its junglist beginnings - so it’s the perfect place for the all-encompassing style of Command Strange.

Exclusive mix by MOVE D for Hard Life & Dure Vie www.hardlife.london www.durevie.paris
In store recording from 24th of September 2016.
This is a DJ mix Hauke recorded to celebrate the release of our new record. It contains all the tunes from XK02 and some mainly new music. XK02 is out now. Distributed by OYE Records and All Ears. Matthias Reiling/ Hauke Freer XK2 12” (XK02) A1 Matthias Reiling Hand Of Hope A2 Matthias Reiling Melodioso B1 Hauke Freer Reach Out Round 2 for Neukölln based boutique imprint XK after Hauke Freer’s phenomenal first volume left heads baffled all over the place. This time, the label hands the A side to retro spook maniac Matthias Reiling, who opens with Hand Of Hope, a tune that fuses an attitude heavy, upright bass/ piano theme with a cold hearted drum workout. Strongly physical, sensitive, yet somewhat arrogant as we feel here. Reiling twangs up his Stratocaster on Melodioso and explores the possibilities of sequencer based Surf Rock. You know, like a computer trying to be a backing band or the other way around. We can't help but imagine Chris Isaak singing under the shower to this one. The B side is Freer territory once again, and Hauke takes us deep into his realm of hypnotic, druggy dub disco sculpting. Reach Out sucks you in, leaves you utterly disoriented and makes your mind paint a picture you would not have painted elsewhere. Then you try to tell your friends, you can't find any words, yet it feels right and you all smile at each other.
Simon Caldwell invited us to play some records and talk about our upcoming album. You might be able to spot a few LP tunes in the mix.

Welcome to Mr. Bargain Bin This project was started when I recently moved to Melbourne from the UK having sold my beloved record collection in July. I wanted to keep on playing music in clubs but being strapped for cash I couldn't afford to rebuild my collection based on buying new releases. So I decided to start raiding bargain bins in all the stores I could find and unearthed nothing but heat that has lead me to build an eclectic collection of unheard/ forgotten/ somehow unwanted records that I am desperate to share with you all. Here is a taster I hope you enjoy! ❤️
