Analogue Is... Optimo

Optimo Espacio translates as “optimal space” in Spanish. It’s a fairly fitting name for two DJs who began their career as a duo trying to turn a dance floor into just that…

Analogue Is... Felix Dickinson

Most conversations about Felix Dickinson’s life as a DJ tend to get tangled among the rigs of the UK’s free party scene of the early-1990s. As a 20-year-old he was throwing raves and running from the police, under the tutelage of Brighton’s Tonka Sound System…

Analogue Is... Markus Lindner

Markus Linder’s story in Berlin reads like a down-to-earth fairytale for aspiring DJs. Arriving in the city in 2001, nights of carefree partying gave way to days hanging around the Oye Records store in Prenzlaeur Berg; a then-fledgling outlet for music that, matching Linder’s own taste, deviated from the typical techno obsession that continued to dominate the scene...

Analogue Is... Intakt!

You won’t easily find Berlin’s first pressing plant in years, Intakt, if you can find it at all. Nestled deep and rather idyllically in the city’s Southernmost suburbs, it’s neighbours are not record stores, clubs or bustling label offices, but vast storage units, and more unusually, a large indoor volleyball centre...

The course of  Maryama Luccioni’s life has lead her ever further North. From a sun-kissed childhood in Corsica, to her teens and early twenties spent in bustling Paris, and for the past six years, settled in Berlin. But as she has traversed Europe, her taste has consistently gravitated to the African roots of her parents. Under the pseudonym of ‘MaryisonAcid’, she is...
