Thisispaper Mix 013 was recorded by Rafał Grobel, a DJ, promoter, record collector, S1 Warsaw and MOST record labels co-owner. Being deeply connected to the electronic music scene in Poland, Rafał is the one behind the unprecedented SIDE ONE TEN compilation, containing 12 new tracks of Polish electronic music artists.
The mix was given a title "Mokotów Nights", which became a little tribute to the charming vibe of Mokotow, a neighbourhood in Warsaw where both Rafał and Thisispaper Studio reside. All vinyl tracks have been recorded through the analogue rotary mixer to gain warmer sound, making it a perfect soundtrack for the long spring evening walks. The mix includes two jams from Grobel’s labels S1 Warsaw and MOST Records. First one - Umba 'Ramię Oriona' is already out as part of SIDE ONE TEN box set and 'Jegiel' by Botanica is coming soon on Prosto's new electronic imprint.
“I've had an idea for a deeper, stretched out mix for quite a time and a bunch of tracks that didn't fit anywhere else. The last missing puzzle comes from Prins Thomas latest ambient-disco album 'Principe De Norte'. It lasts over thirteen minutes and extends the regular one-hour podcast timing to bring an epic final. It somehow influenced the whole recording to sound a bit Scandinavian which I believe meets Thisispaper aesthetics,” said Rafal.
