Seth recently put together a 300-hour archive of DJ mixes that reminded us of the length of his career, from booking Magda for a party in Detroit aged 15 to becoming the underground’s biggest crossover success, playing everywhere from EDM festival stages to the throbbing rooms of the world’s best clubs and, most recently, a 20-metre art installation in a train station.

Known for his charisma and love of the party, he’s never lost sight of the fact that a DJ is only as good as the record bag they bring with them. We’ve chosen 12 of his best mixes and put them in chronological order to tell the story of a DJ who can bang a party but is intent on showing that there’s more to music than peak-time club sets.

2006 JOHN CLEES VS SETH TROXLER – TESH CLUB ISLAND

Known for his charisma and love of the party, he’s never lost sight of the fact that a DJ is only as good as the record bag they bring with them. We’ve chosen 12 of his best mixes and put them in chronological order to tell the story of a DJ who can bang a party but is intent on showing that there’s more to music than peak-time club sets.

This three-hour session is the sound of Troxler and Clees weaving their way through propulsive minimalism and micro grooves when all anyone had to do was get high and burrow deep into record collecting, production (check the ‘Lost & Found’ EP for experiments from this time) and throwing damn good parties. The pair go further and further and you can practically taste the atmosphere in the room, no doubt summoned by the psychedelics and dissociatives that would make tracks like Matt John’s ‘Daktari’ remix and ‘Hot Sugar Candy Apple Taffy’ all the more stimulating. It’s Seth at his wiggliest, as yet unconstrained by the International Deejay lifestyle.
