Lossless’ Neil Flynn Shares 5 Essentials from His Record Crate

Sitting on the forefront of techno progress in vinyl form, Lossless Records’ Neil Flynn is an Irish export with a Berlin sound. Building a catalog of wax distributed by Dixon’s own Muting The Noise, Flynn has a slew of support from German house and techno elite. Having shared the decks with Innervision’s power trio of Ame, Mano Le Tough, and boss Steffen himself it’s safe to say Neil Flynn has a stacked resume.
Despite his techy yet powerful sound in the studio, Neil’s DJ crate shows another side of the Berlin-based artist. We asked Neil to share 5 records that remain in rotation for his sets. As one of the few out there keeping 12″ in constant (and traveling) rotation, it’s no surprise that we found some classic groove in Neil’s crate.

NRK – Blackjoy, Moustache

Through his journey to disco, Parisian producer Blackjoy has hosted French Touch radio, worked for Bob Sinclair, and launch his own label. He has all the right tones plus a swagger that only the French can emit. If you can hold down this smooth vibe, the record is sexy.

Compost – Wei Chi , Faces And Places

The B-side is a future classic in the rinsed remix by Henrik Schwarz. Not much more can be said about that one except… it may change your life. Wei Chi is said to compose all of his tunes on a piano and is shows, very trippy jazz right here.

Imperial Dub Recordings – DSP , Sins Ive Lost EP

Deep from DSP, a house set doesn’t count without a couple of dreamy house records. The vocal single on ‘Sins I’ve Lost’ is a refreshing reminder of funk from the San Francisco-based label.

Lossless – Various Artists , Outbound 1

Outbound is the very first VA on vinyl breakouts Mathias Schober and Thomas Herb’s German label. The record features the self-dubbed Lossless ‘inner circle’ Anthony George Patrice, SBTH, and Neil himself. Always keep some of your own weapons handy I guess, nice one Neil.

Alleviated Records – Larry Heard Presents: Mr. White* ‎– You Rock Me / The Sun Can’t Compare

Classic vibes lead this decade-old Memphis track. Somewhere between house and a ballad of tribal, this percussive dance tune is subtly euphoric. Rounding off the stack in a borderline Balearic manner, I’ll have this one on repeat for some time.

Keep watch for Neil, Djing on the road and releasing recordings for the racks. Strapped with these five records, it’s just a taste of his sets’ dancey vibe. Keep watch and catch him in your town.
