Volume 17 – mixed by Ahu

Back in 2009, we actually wanted to launch this very podcast with a mix from a female producer, but after many delays it unfortunately never materialized. 17 episodes in and we are very proud to announce a mix from one of our favourites: Turkish singer, producer, DJ and radio presenter Ahu. She has worked with the likes of Flying Lotus (as Dolly), Grooveman Spot, Mr Beatnick or Emanative, in 2010 One-Handed Music released her wonderful solo debut, and next on the list will hopefully be her first long player. It was her Vida Ahu Nova! mixtape for Brainfeeder that made us become a fan of her musical selection and eventually lead to this new episode.
