Georgi Barrel, Kassel, GERMANY tech, house, swing.
Welcome back Folks !!! Last week Alioch mix was quite short but intense so this week I picked up a longer mix. Quite unsual for our site, but we don’t really care, right ?
Real name : Georgi Varelis lives in Kassel, Germany. He’s a 20 years old student at university. For me he represents the new generation of DJ who really uses the new Dj tools at it’s best and has at the same time a real feeling with music. When I listen to his mix I imagine it could be a much older guy who already listened to many albums and different types of music. It reminds me the What is Jazz mix (ES050) by Osca that was really good too.
He calls his music “Tech Hoe” so I asked him 2 smart questions :
What is Electro Swing for you ?
Electro swing is for me the perfect combination of antiquated sounds with the structure of modern, danceable beats. I love the rythmic basslines with the weird trumpets and the old sketchy voices. It seems to fit even better together than Jonathon Frakes and his beard.
What is Tech Hoe for you ?
Tech Hoe is a self-made malapropism for my sets…. dunno, maybe because i like to play slow, melodic and kind of romantic tech house tracks trying to hook up with some hoes (what strangely enough never happens!).
