Based in Dresden, Germany; Kern is a recent discovery of mine and I was really impressed with his liveset release for the Phonocake label. Things being as they are I asked him to provide a mix for the show.
He is a member of the collective Idealfun and alongside the Kern name has 2 other alias: dk69 and One Day in Metropia.
His list of influences goes a little bit like this: Aphex Twin, Autechre, Hia, Drexciya, Datatheif, Nautilis, The Orb, FSOL, Squarepusher, DMX Krew, b12, Biosphere, Massive Attack, Aux88, Venetian Snares, Dynamix II, Warp, Planet Mu, Underground Resistance, and more.
