Raphael Grau maybe more known as Raph has been holding down the fort in Belgium together with the Forma.T crew when it comes to bringing that techhouse heat. He’s been featured here on Discobelle in the past with his Summer 2009 mix and his fine remix of the Steve Angello track “Tivoli”.
He just did this smashing mixtape for the Truants blog and it showcases both his selection and his skills.
“Raph playlisted everyoneâ€™s number one from the recent BNR sampler, “Tellyfoam” by Jan Driver and Yolanda Be Coolâ€™s “We No Speak Americano” next to Ben Clockâ€™s “Red Alert”, which is a crazy and loud track focusing on percussion, alongside the more old-school/big room vibes of Sebastien Leger. The â€˜instrumentalist German minimal technoâ€™ side that Raph digs is present in the track thatâ€™s done by Hanne & Lore and there are also a lot of guitars thrown in there to show his love for the more tech-y and gypsy side of the electronic spectrum.”
