FACT mix 553: Serge

Even if you’ve never heard him DJ, you’ll know Serge’s selections.

The Dutchman’s ear for the very best house, techno and electro has helped him build Clone Records, the DIY label he founded in 1992, into a veritable empire, including a distribution company and record store in Rotterdam and a dizzying network of sublabels (Clone Jack For Daze, Clone Aqualung Series, Clone Basement Series and Royal Oak, to name a few you’ll have come across in tracklists for your fave mixes). Two decades on and the quality continues to peak, with the likes of Legowelt, DJ Haus, Randomer and A Made Up Sound gracing the roster recently.

We’ve been after a mix from the boss for years, so when he told us what he was cooking up we dropped everything to hear it. “Since I never record mixes, ’cause I never felt the urge, I remembered I always used to make tapes for friends back in the days, including my girlfriend,” he said about his “springtime” mix. “So I wanted to do some kind of ‘girlfriend mixtape’, with tunes that have that spring mixtape vibe, rather than a mix with only rare obscure stuff or own productions, or whatever is the thing to do with podcasts these days that helps your DJ profile or whatever.

“So it’s a mix with classic house tracks, some unreleased tunes and some new bits, with the vocal tracks that add that special girlfriend feel – tunes that could have a little special meaning instead of just cool dancefloor bangers or obscure trainspotter stuff.”

It’s a perfect fit for the bank holiday wind-down, with tons of jackin’ diva house and sun-baked grooves.
