TOTD // 05/12 // DJ Seinfeld

Published: December 5, 2016, words by Mitchell Green

For those who aren’t aware, DJ Seinfeld is an individual who has recently taken the low-fidelity house scene by storm. Only bursting onto the scene this year, Seinfeld boasts no more than ten tracks on his Soundcloud, however,  the quality of his productions remain to be the sole factor that is separating him from his peers within the scene. With his tracks featuring in mixes from the likes of Courtesy and Rudolf C, DJ Seinfeld is making serious movements as of late. His sound is rough, distorted and heavenly all at the same time, with his spectacular use and selection of samples shining through his rugged kick drums and crisp hi-hats. We thoroughly recommend that you find yourself on DJ Seinfeld’s Soundcloud with the aim of engulfing yourself in his tracks. If you’re a fan of luscious vocals, gleaming pads and drawn-out chords placed as a backdrop behind thumping percussion, DJ Seinfeld may just tick all of your boxes.

This past few weeks has seen DJ Seinfeld’s career elevate to the next level, with an EP lined up to come out on both Lobster Theremin and the R&S Records sub-label Meda Fury. The EP, titled Season 1 was released last week and it takes a step back from the dominance of sampling, focusing more on presenting five techno-oriented rhythms that are as hard hitting as they are groove-inspired. A definite evolution in DJ Seinfeld’s sound is noticed with this EP, and as it stands alone as his debut record, we are all very excited to hear what 2017 is going to hold for the producer.

Unfortunately, last week there was some negative press directed at the lo-fi scene and producers such as DJ Seinfeld using humourous names that, in the eyes of critics, devalue their work. We feel humour in artists’ monikers is refreshing to see amongst the seriousness normally linked within underground electronic music, and personally, it’s about the end product, the music they deliver. With that said, today we have invited DJ Seinfeld to showcase his skill and professional attitude as an artist. Orchestrated by DJ Seinfeld himself, Tracks Of The Day includes four beautiful tracks that are on heavy rotation in his DJ sets right now, featuring heat from KHALK, Hymns and The Abstract Eye.
