Logeshen Moorgan aka Fourmï Rouz is a Mauritian globetrotter who unveils a psychedelic mix that makes us drift between tropical and tribal world, lounge eroticism and sharp breakbeat. Trax wanted to have a better understanding of his very dense and unexpectedly wide universe, so we asked him a few questions about the podcast, his background and the state of the Mauritian scene.

Londoner Ali Wells aka Perc remains a key figure in the UK's industrial techno resurgence, the worthy heir to Surgeon's pre-British Murder Boys throne. Since his label Perc Trax's first release in 2004, the warehouse king has been leading the cavalry of artists making techno that is as brutal as it is cathartic, including Truss, Sawf, Salmon & Gonno, Go Hiyama and more recently Ansome and AnD. Ahead of the Possession x Perc Trax label night in Paris on 18th November, where he's billed alongside Randomer, Ansome (live), Truss, Bleaching Agent and Possession resident Parfait, we asked Perc to make us a playlist of 10 highlights from his label's back catalogue. However, it was simply "impossible to choose", so he decided instead to give us 10 tracks to sum up the label's current direction. No prisoners taken.
The thermometer soars in Ibiza where the season has kicked off with great pomp : Paradise, the concept of parties created by Jamie Jones in the legendary DC10 club, had its traditional opening ceremony on June 12 with the influential artists of the Techno scene. The concept is held over seventeen weeks every Wednesday, for the pleasure of the successive waves of "globe-clubbers" who land under the Spanish sun. The British DJ gives us an overview of the location, with his vision of the mixing and of what, according to him, makes the success of a great club.
