With Budakid’s ‘Reflection EP’ out this week on Manual Music, we take a look at his favourite tracks of the moment in the latest edition of What’s In Your Box?


1. Cubicolor – Falling (Robag’s Uppa Baash Remix) | Fayer

I’m always surprised when I’m listening to Robert Wruhme’s tracks – it always feels like a story for me. But his interpretation of Cubicolors “Falling” is one of my favorites at the moment. A lovely blend of atmosphere, sound-design and energy. I can’t stop listening.

2. Joop Junior – Sofie Lucie | Bedrock

Joop is actually a techno guy – signed on labels like Minus – that shows his wide spectrum with this amazing track, signed on John’s Bedrock recordings. A simple beat with some dreamy and powerful synths – both together in a great mixage. The arrangement is really nice and interesting.

3. Rafael Da Cruz – Rex (Andre Lodemann) | Compost Black Label

Following Andre for a while now and I started my first DJ shows with playing his tracks. Already liked his sound, but the last few years he’s in beast mode. This remix from Rafael’s track for example – it’s great, fresh and good for the hips.

4. Lindstrøm – Rà-àkõ-st | Smalltown Supersound

The moment when I discovered this guy from the North – it felt like seeing the Northern lights. Solid disco grooves with beautiful and thoughtful melodies.

5. Jeremy Olander – Falls | Vivrant

Jeremy took my attention with his release on Suara. A few months later his EP on Vivrant came – imprint by Jeremy himself. Clean and atmospheric in a way how I like progressive house. 

6. Jonas Saalbach & BOg – Indie Rubels | Bedrock

Jonas is one of the guys who is getting a lot of attention the last couple of days – and it’s well deserved. This track – together with BOg – is one of his diamonds for me, hypnotic, strong and groovy.

7. Heiko Laux – Shimmer | Kanzleramt

No beat, no clap and 2:10 long. A short album (story) track from Heiko, I felt in love with this piece. Sometimes, when I’m listening to a song like this it’s not only the music that grabs me but it also affects my visual imagination.

8. Dave DK – Nueva Cancion | Kompakt

Nueva Cancion by Dave DK is a piece that directly goes into my soul. Fine textures, dreamy atmosphere and perfect details. The perfect recipe for my daily dreams.

9. Isolee – Allowance | Pampa Records

Brilliant track by Isolee on Pampa Records. After a while I’m still very impressed by this piece. Discovered it a few years ago and it still works for me. Every time I’m listening to it, it feels like the time stops for a few minutes.

10. Baths – Miasma Sky | Anticon

And sometimes a song stands for a certain period in my life.
