Andrei Nechifor aka Batz started to develop his vinyl addiction years ago, supporting MCs and B-boys with his scratching and beatjuggling skills.
The RotoPerCutoR project became his means of expressing the passion for quality electronic music, alongside his good old friend Borac. Their truly unique sound made up of scratches, synths and live improvisations put RotoPerCutoR in the same booth with artists like Jazzanova, Bonobo, DJ Cam, Herbaliser, John Talabot, Modeselektor, Jeremy Underground Paris. Not to mention their production skills, expressed in sound design for movies and theatre plays.
As we are aware of his massive records collection (after all they hosted a vinyl only radio show at Grooveon back in 2014), we hit Batz with a pretty hard challenge: to choose 5 of his favourite deep house records, overplayed in 2015, and name his reasons for this selection
Big Moses – The Brighter Days Ep (King Street Sounds 1996)
This record is a must have for those o.g. house heads, real good party starter (A2 Party Time).
The Deep – The Earth Ep (Basenotic Records 1997)
Another classic old school deep house tune, this one is even high on the resellers market. I got mine for way less than what it goes for nowadays
Takeshi Kouzuki – The House Of The Rising Sun Ep (Mathematics Records 2011)
This is a really good ep, I mostly use this record when switching from deep house to a more contemporary techno vibe in my sets, via liquid flavoured acid.
Mandar – Peace Force (Lazare Hoche Records 2015)
By far one of the grooviest records to come out this year, make sure to keep an eye our for these 3 guys behind Mandar.
Brawther – Endless (Balance 2015)
Needless to say more about Brawther, but I got really excited when this release came out, I finally had my favourite songs from Brawther on the same record :))
