We came across the People’s Higher Order of Royal Kinship or PHORK through his releases on Opal Tapes this year, a label that releases mostly on cassette and that has risen to one of very few labels which output is very hard to pin down to a certain genre.
This week’s Juxtape comes from Konduku. He comes from the same wave of young DJ’s like 751, Det and Mattikk but has been more under the radar than his peers.

Last week I saw a chart somewhere on the interwebs with the top 50 Aphex Twin tunes, and being the fanboy that I am, I saw some of his top productions not in there.
For juxtapose 31 we invited Amsterdam based Mark van de Maat. As we know Mark for quite a long time now, we always loved his wide (good) taste of music. He can talk hours about punk rock and metal but he was also present at the emergence of the minimal scene.
We’ve arrived at the 30th Juxtape with this recording by @751. He’s part of a new generation of young DJ’s that seem to have more knowledge about electronic dance music than most DJ’s that headline the clubs in the weekend.
A bit self-centered but we love our own juxtape series. There’s no point in knowing good music if you can’t share it.
The first Juxtape after a loooong summer break. We asked Emilio Bestevez a long time ago if he wanted to record a mix for us.
Eaglemen, or ‘Arendman’ as we like better, is in our hearts. Lovely selections and crafty mixes in the tradition of Aardvarck.
We asked young gun Shoq Du Mel to record something for us and he started where Mudde left off, grime.
We obviously have a big link with Arnhem. So obvious, that it isn’t worth mentioning. There’s only the fact that juxtape 26 is mixed by an Arnhem-corryfee.
