Thrilling blends from Melbourne’s finest club export.

Melbourne’s Oliver van der Lugt is one of experimental club music’s most prolific artists. Over the past five years, van der Lugt has stitched grime, Jersey club and other hyper-localized genres into a dense collage he’s previously called “oblique club trax”, appearing  on Liminal Sounds, NLV Records, Sound Pellegrino and his own DECISIONS label.

June 1 sees the release of van der Lugt’s debut album, Nacre. Written between Melbourne and Berlin and mixed in Mexico City, where he spent the second half of 2017, the album is said to be a reflection of his globetrotting lifestyle over the past few years, showcasing “a broader spectrum of Air Max ’97 sonics than ever before.”

Having been fans of Air Max ’97 for several years, we thought it was high time to get a FACT mix from the producer and DJ. It doesn’t disappoint: as well as tracks from contemporaries Aïsha Devi, LOFT and Abyss X, it’s packed with blends, bootlegs and edits of favorites from Cardi B, Ariana Grande and even Mel C. Just make sure to stick around for the t.A.T.u. remix.
