Hrdvsion leaving the best till last! posted by on March 20, 2014

Avid supporter of Skrufix, fellow Berlin resident and one hell of a DJ and Producer ‘Hrdvsion’, has put together this mix to promote his appearance at Skreamizm. It is no surprise the mix is full of the finest and freshest tunes around, so we feel privileged that he chose to see the mix out with our latest release from the impeccable Turtlez duo. High praise indeed!

Turtlez – God iz Back EP (SKRU004) posted by on March 20, 2014

Our fourth release is now out, as the Turtlez duo return with a two track EP of the highest quality. If you haven’t heard about it then you must have been hiding from the winter chill, as the hype train has been chugging along for this, with a number of international radio big-ups and known DJ’s dropping it in their recent sets in Berlin and further a field! As per usual, it is available to purchase on all good download stores, stream-able on your preferred service or if YouTube is your thing then check out our slick new moving images:

PARTIES!! posted by on March 20, 2014

Meet the guests posted by on January 6, 2014

In preparation for our next party (this friday), we wanted to make a short introduction to the music of the two special guest DJs who will be making an appearance.

Firstly, we are lucky enough to have a DJ set from House of Black Lanterns – his second set in Berlin since the release of his LP on the incredible Houndstooth label that has just found itself at the top of lots of best label of the year lists (see here, here, and here).

To get a taste of what to expect, check out his Boiler Room set below.

We are also over the moon to have a DJ set from Aashton, the new alias of Brighton based DJ and producer Dominic Ashton, former lead singer of the band Kinema and one-half of House duo Aashton & Swift.
After realising that Aashton’s tracks had found their way into the “dancefloor weapons” crates of the Skrufix residents, we asked him to come to Berlin to play for us – and he graciously accepted. He has also prepared a special mix for us to give people some idea of what to expect. Check it out below.

Suicide Circus Skrufix Room 2 Takeover – 7th June posted by on May 13, 2013

Skrufix will be taking over the Holz floor of Suicide Circus on the 7th June for what is set to be a wonderful night. Save the date and watch this space for more details!

Skrufix 003 MightyHor – Walk in Stomp posted by on April 29, 2013

After hearing his fine reworking of the first ‘Things With Wings’ release on Skrufix, they practically snapped his hands off in their eagerness for a fresh original track of his own.

Thankfully his hands didn’t become completely detached and he was able to put together the deceptively wonky tech-house tune ‘Walk In Stomp’!

Having worked with countless other producers and bands over the years he is certainly no novice. MightyHor has honed his production style for a number of years now, and throughout his experiments with different styles and influences has remained a master of driving synths and bass.

Completing the package is a remix of ‘Walk In Stomp’ by The Crane, who featured on the label’s last release as a member of production duo Turtlez. Crane is a regular DJ at Skrufix’s Berlin parties and a prolific producer who puts his hand to pretty much any style one could ask for (and a few which nobody ever requested at all): his danceably chopped up 2-step version is an absolute gem.

Skru003 Launch Party – 26th Apr 2013 posted by on April 1, 2013

After a few months out, we return for the next of our Skrufix Label Nacht series. Following our hugely successful parties last year, we kick things off for the year with another party at the cool little Mezcaleria Lupita venue.

The original Skrufix dream team will be delivering the veritable variety of beats for the night! These are the now regular Sisyphos DJ, Ralph Alfa, and then label bosses Shanghai Burton and Things WIth Wings, who has been keeping the Skrufix name active with gigs at Farbfernseher, Suicide Circus and many more venues over the past six months or so.

As well as the general Skrufix excuses for a party, we will also be celebrating our next release out 3 days after the party, coming from MightyHor. The next big production talent on Skrufix, The Crane, is on remix duties for this release and will also deliver his mixing styles on the night alongside the other aforementioned residents.

More info will also be posted on the venues Facebook page

Skrufix Podcast 005 – Mixed by Shanghai Burton posted by on March 28, 2013

We’ve brought you a Crane, MightHor, an Alfa male and Things with Wings. Now it is the turn of Shanghai Burton to step up on Podcast duties, so here we are with the 5th in our series of mixes, including the now obligatory voice overs and shout outs. Another mammoth journey of a mix, traveling with one of our Skrufix party residents from mid 120 bpms to 140 plus. Hold on to your hats through beats of present, past and future (Garage), as well as a track from the up and coming April release on the label. Look out for that on all stores from April 29th and keep an eye out for details of a launch party with SB and friends on the 27th, at a secret location in Berlin!
