Almost 2 years ago we started the GH Podcast series, where we gathered along the way some of our favorite selectors. Rhadoo, Priku, Herodot, Cap, Sammy Dee, Mihigh or Arno are just a few who shared their mixes with us, from the desire to encapsulate the Zeitgeist of our dancefloor. Now, reaching the 15th podcasts, we’ve invited Dj Masda to join our musical library - a key player in the hypnotic minimal circle for almost three decades.
The Japanese DJ based in Berlin has deservedly garnered a reputation as a supremely cultured selector thanks to flawless sets and for being a curator of the Cabaret record label.
His guest podcast is powerful and functional, with a modern sound rooted in classicism. Masda masters the art of reduction: his sound stretches from deep house to tech and electro, but a thread of artful minimalism runs through - stripped-back, modern, free of big breakdowns or in-your-face melodies. Its sound is crisp, groovy and clean but packs a sense of warmth that often eludes such stripped-down tracks.
Progressively structured and surgically mixed, this podcast is a true representation of DJ Masda’s exciting, untouchable style.
