Danny Berman (Red Rack'em/Hot Coins) Live Mix @ Nash Party.


Danny Berman aka Red Rack'em is well known for his naughty pirate soul remixes and disco edits which have been supported by the Unabombers, Todd Terje, Swag, Yam Who, Prins Thomas as well as institutions such as Fat City and Piccadilly Records. But this is only one small part of Danny's musical cannon. As a DJ he is known for his actual genre busting eclectic sets alongside nu-school house DJ's like The Revenge and Mark E.
From cutting edge Detroit 2 step to wonky disco, beatdown house and glitchy hip hop, his production work too has recently been repped by luminaries such as Carl Craig, the Idjut Boys, the Rush Hour crew and Domu.
Danny recently returned to his 'Hot Coins' disco project with the 'Laissez Faire EP' which was well supported by the likes of Prins Thomas, Chris Duckenfield, Soul Mekanik and Bill Brewster and the lead track, 'Norway Man' was licenced to Fred Deakins 'Nu Balearica' comp. Danny is also releasing some fresh beatdown house on Atlantic Conveyors label 'Untracked' and is in demand as a remixer. He has recently been hard at work on the Hot Coins album and the follow up EP.
With this recent live mix from the Love Unlimited Sound System/Nash party in Nottingham back in October wearing it's techno and disco influences casually, but assuredly, like a Gareth Hunt lookalike in a 1979 C + A ad, laughing and pointing at some unseen object in the distance, Mr Berman drops 2 hours of brilliant future deepness and wild pitch style house. A proper treat of a mix and one of my favourites from last year. I'm definitely marking Berman out as one of the main 'ones to watch' for the next 12 months. I'm predicting a big year for him.
Get on it quick time!!
