Vinyl-only label Perlon has defined the sound of electronic dance music over the last decade with a roster including Matthew Dear, Ricardo Villalobos, Cassy, Stefan Goldmann, Tobias Freund, Daniel Bell, Baby Ford and, more recently, Shackleton, Portable, or San Proper. Expansive sets from Get Perlonized’s two residents, Zip and Sammy Dee, and their rotating roster of special guests, have made the monthly Perlon night at Panorama Bar a Berlin institution since the early 00s. Mara Trax’s focus is a very special groove of old-school house, which they mix in their back-to-back sets with modern vinyl stripped-down to the essentials. Brit-born Baby Ford, a musical brother-in-spirit and long-time associate of Perlon, likewise remains averse to any hint of superfluity and pares his minimal funk down to the core.
