NP34 | Jordan
Jordan is a fresh new face in New York dance music circles but is also one that is sure to get more attention very soon. Relocating from the Midwest a few years ago, Jordan has applied his d’n'b-sharpened DJ skills to the modern breed of deep techno, house and bass music that’s spearheaded NYC’s underground electronic renaissance. The result is an impeccable mixing technique combined with excellent taste that’s no doubt been informed by years of working at Brooklyn’s Halcyon The Shop. Outside of DJing, Jordan is also honing his unique production style, which has already manifested itself with a track for C.O.M.E. compilation on Fred P’s label Soul People Music under the alias JD. He also founded the event series Artifact with Taimur Agha and Sophie Hirsch which premiered with a showcase of Latency Recordings in Brooklyn. It is a conceptual event that is “merging immersive music and immersive space so tightly that they’re no longer separate.” Keep your eyes peeled this fall for the next installment of Artifact and future music projects from Jordan.

One guy NP have admired for some time, he’s part of the new bread of Russian producers making some serious deep house cuts hitting our shores. Alex’s productions have melody, lush cords and will always burn brightly early morning or late afternoon. The mix shows all these things, floaty, deep lushness.

NP31 | Banfield Audio
NP31 comes from Monochromatic Records heads Hernan Cronner and Diego Perrisson. The South Americans put together their experience and desire to do projects in 2010 and formed the duo that is Banfield Audio.
Banfield is Cronner’s hometown and the place they both chose to work on their productions surrounded by hardware and records. United by a passion for vinyl and influenced by Deep, Jazz, Garage, New York / Chicago and Detroit Techno. They developed a project conceptual, modern and classic; based on the specific instruments mixing old school and new school technologies. Monochromatic Records first release was a nice 10" with a track from NP favorite Specter and a track by the duo. The second release is due very soon, tracks by Amir Alexander and Banfield Audio. The mix sums up the duo’s inspiration and sound and we are very pleased to have them on board.
