Wolf Music & Mr. Fries: The Wednesday Alternative Mix


Now here is something set to brighten up a Wednesday afternoon for one and all – we have invited two of the most wonderful disc jockeys to play some music for you in the form of a mix. Yes! A Mix! 

WOLF Music is a longstanding imprint based out of London town which has amassed a reputation for it's deep rooted approach and consistent output – the likes of Casino Times, Frits Wentik, Medlar and many more have all appeared on the label. Mr. Fries is another to have graced the imprint with his distinguished take on house music… 

We think you might be able to guess what's coming next… 

Live and back to back from Mauke we have Mr. Fries and WOLF Music in session. Listen and read the interview below: 

Please introduce yourself… Who are you, where are you and what are you?

Stu, one half of WOLF Music, London, hungry

Mr. Fries, Dortmund, Producer, DJ & Junkfood-Connoisseur, 

What does your music sound like? Can you draw what you think it sounds like for us (an image from the old internet is acceptable)?

Where was the mix recorded? 

Stu: The mix was recorded two weekends ago at the small but perfectly formed Mauke in the western German city of Wuppertal. We hosted a WOLF Music party with Mr. Fries & Kandinsky at the club but my main reason for visiting the city was to observe the suspended monorail that opened in 1901. Though not the world's first single-track hanging rail system, it's the world's oldest monorail still in operation and Europe's only suspended railway.

What would be the ideal setting to listen to the mix?

What should we be wearing?

Stu: One of those trendy bucket hats

What would be your dream setting to record a mix: Location /system/ format? 

Stu: Somewhere with a few cold beers will do. 

Which track in the mix is your current favourite?

Stu: Medlar – Baby Gone Batshit

Mr. Fries – Scott Fergusson-Disco Dancing

What’s your favourite recorded mix of all time?

Stu: 1997 Daft Punk Essential Mix

Mr. Fries: Theo Parrish-Live in Detroit 1999

If you could go back to back with any DJ from throughout history, who would it be and why?

Stu: Francis Grasso sounded like a character.

Mr. Fries:  Watching Ron Hardy playing some records backwards at Muzic Box would be dope.

What was your first DJ set up at home and what is it now? 


Then: KAM GM25 mixer & KAM Studio turntables – MADE 2 FADE BABY!

Now: An old Allen & Grief Xone 62 & Technics 1210 turntables

Mr. Fries: 

Then: Reloop Turntables and a weird DJ-Controller

Now: 2x Technics 1210 and old Pioneer DJM-600

What’s more important, the track you start on or the track you end on? 

Stu: Good question. People only remember the track you end with though right?

If this mix was an edible thing, what would it taste like? 

Stu: Something bad for you

If it was an animal what would it be?

Mr. Fries – Koala

"They are predominantly active at night and spend most of their waking hours feeding."

One record in your collection that is impossible to mix into anything?

Stu: Where there’s a will, there’s a way. 

Upcoming in the world of…

Stu: WOLF, forthcoming releases from Frits Wentink, BRS, Gene Tellem.

Mr. Fries: Working on my first LP & finishing some Projects with friends ( s/o to Kandinsky).
