Dj Scm: The ‘Shine A Light On’ Mix
From the murky depths of Berlin comes a new beam of light complete with an emotional party orientated edge. DJ SCM first appeared on our radar back in 2015, since then he has formed his own record label under the name of Warm Tapes Adjustment which has released music from the likes of Gari Romalis and Jordan Fields. His music is playful, much like his persona and the labels visual aesthetic. When it comes to selection in the clubs his tastes are versatile and far reaching, this is certainly made clear through the diverse array of music present in this mix. There is a lot to be said about those who simply do it for the love, get on board. Listen and read the interview below:
You’re pretty new on our radar, fancy telling us a little bit about yourself?
I'm 28 years old, dj/ producer, vinyl collector and owner of Warm Tapes Adjustment
Who are you and where are you from?
I'm DJ SCM and I come from Italy
What does SCM stand for?
It's just an acronym…
How would you describe the music which you make?
The music I make is something like a compression of all the sounds, styles, genres, ideas in which I strongly believe during the period of production.
What’s the most emotional party you’ve ever attended?
There are a lot of party I still remember such as “Really Emotional” but I think I always have something to learn from who have been doing this job for much more time than me, that's why the best party I attended was at Prince Charles in Berlin with Specter, M. Pittman and R.Wilhite b2b. I've seen member of family, friends and guests dancing all together like never, and this gave me some special feelings about people and music that keep bangin into myself. Actually i felt the same last year in November at Paloma with Dj Fett Burger, Jayda G and Double Dancer…

So much record store.
