Noorden Mixtape 53: Panta Rex
As usual, we are introducing our new artists with a mixtape – so we do with @panta-rex, whose mini-album »Antennen« will be released on June 19th.
For the 53rd edition of our mixtape series, Panta Rex opened the studio’s window wide, invited the sun and the warm breeze to come in and let things flow while recording the mix with vinyl only. Including tracks by the likes of Levon Vincent, Lowtec, Move D, or Break SL, he takes us on a journey to the places his artistic visions are rooted.
Noorden Mixtape 50: Phil Latch
Those who have been following our mixtape series for some time should have noticed that an important number is missing: the mighty fifty. So here it is – mixed by @noorden_llm chief operator @phil-latch.
After five years without a solo mixtape, Phil shares an intimate live recording of his closing set at Museumsnacht Cologne 2019 at Museum Schnütgen.

Noorden Mixtape 52: Martin Schmitz
We kick off the new year with the 52nd edition of our mixtape series.
Partner in crime and beloved buddy Martin Schmitz (@martinschmitz) and his signature silk scarf are back at the booth with a nice glass of sparkling wine and a box of no-filler-wax melting the genres between classic house, dubby techno and broken beats.
A perfect mix to start the weekend and get into the groove. »Only vinyl – only music – only love!«
Noorden Mixtape 51: Nikita von Tiraspol
We love to introduce our new artists with a mixtape – so we do with @nikitavontiraspol, who released Noorden’s latest cassette »Was Lucifer more beautiful than Adonis?« (https://soundcloud.com/noorden/ltd34) back in August.
In the 51th edition of our mixtape series, Nikita blends his favourite records of 2019’s into something that can best be described as pop. The mix including tracks by Donato Dozzy, Agoria, Jeigo, Vince Watson, &ME, S.A.M., Tim Jackiw, Dusky, Interviews, Kink, Dispo 5000, Zombies in Miami, and Statue was compiled on a warm and sunny day in the garden just before sunset – though it also works on cloudy and rainy days.
Noorden Mixtape 49: Wiebke
Clocking in at number 49 in our podcast series, Hamburg based selector Wiebke (@wiebkes) serves up a vibrant hour of her favourite groovers.
She is one of the faces growing out of the vital environment of Münster’s legendary – now closed – nightclub Der Stur. As resident and part of the Atopie collective (@atopiemusic) she can be seen and heard regularly in Leipzig.
On May 4th she shares the decks with her partner in crime Malaka at IfZ in Leipzig.
