Exploited compilation teaser


One of LIAS’ favorite DJs (and producers and label heads), Berlin’s very own Shir Khan, has dropped a Clash Magazine mixtape in preparation for an upcoming Exploited Records double-disc compilation (Exploited, released on 14 September). The mix features both brand new and classic material, and some exclusive preview tracks from the upcoming comp.

“A born and bred Berliner, Shir Khan started Exploited Records in his home city in 2007, and has since remixed the likes of Evil Nine and Bonde do Role as well as producing his own material. Exploited Records now plays host to some wide-ranging and innovative electronic talent – including Adam Sky and Mowgli – and its artists have been receiving numerous supportive spins from the likes of 2ManyDJs, Boys Noize, Erol Alkan and Diplo. Accordingly, Khan’s mix for Clash – as well as the upcoming ‘Exploited’ compilation itself – is a seamless melting pot of electro-disco-krunk-tech-glitch-basement-funk that simply can’t fail to please even the most discerning ears.Highlights here are plentiful, but include a typically superb bleep-hop Modeselektor remix of a track by fellow Berliner and Boys Noize artist Siriusmo, and some ‘proper’ house (IE of the dirty, acidic variety), courtesy of innovative production/DJ duo Zoo Brazil. Not to be missed, at any cost.”

Shir Khan is a true aural epicurean, never relying on the tested club bangers but instead always seeking out the unknown tunes, or the freshest remixes of better known tracks. In a city where 85% of the population refers to themselves as “DJ”, Shir Khan is arguably the city’s top dog. (His upcoming  Exploited was already voted Compilation of the Month in DJ-Mag, Mixmag and Clashmagazine.)
