#vinyloftheday: Friday Selekts with Danny Scrilla (Cosmic Bridge, GER)

Every fortnight we invite a guest musician to share with us their favourite albums or tracks that inspires them in their music making. Joining us for this week’s Friday Selekts is Danny Scrilla, known for his work on Om Unit’s Cosmic Bridge imprint, and also for his release “Fluxus” in 2013 with Civil Music. His exceptional taste that is seen through his DJ sets – exploiting slow and halftime tempos, with a sweet combination of the deep and dark dubstep sounds.

Previously based in Berlin and London, he now resides in Munich. With his background deeply embedded and heavily influenced by soundsystem culture, it is unsurprising that that his music embodies the sounds of dub and roots. His upcoming album “Ancient Musical Box” however, is a very personal piece and collection of ideas, much different from his previous work – available for listening and pre-order here: https://dannyscrilla.bandcamp.com/album/ancient-musical-box

Check his selection here from his varied collection:

6) Tangerine Dream – Quantum Key
