Prolific São Paulo-based DJ/producer/Fullmix TV host Nuta Cookier has evolved his sound over the course of 150+ releases. During this time he’s navigated his way through a sea of musical styles — house, techno, breaks and beyond — working with fellow dance floor influencers including Axel Karakasis, Oliver Lieb, M.I.K.E Push, and Talla 2XLC.
After releasing the Crystal Empire EP in January and Medusa EP in March, the Future Scope Recordings boss is ready to unveil the Blazing EP on March 23.
Ahead of the four-tracker’s release, the Brazilian mixmaster takes control of the latest Big Shot Guest Mix. He presents a sprawling 11-track journey, featuring three of his own productions and cuts by Amelie Lens, Danny Tenaglia & Layton Giordani and Axel Karakasis.
Says Nuta Cookier of his mix: “When I play a mix or a live performance, what always inspires me is the idea of creating something that makes people happy and sends them to another reality, to a place where all is good and peaceful.”
Chicago/Detroit DJ/producer duo Gettoblaster — Paul Anthony and Zach Bletz — take control of the latest Big Shot Guest Mix and deliver a full-throttle session.

From his days attending drum ‘n’ bass parties in Los Angeles to gravitating toward industrial music, Ashes eventually found his true musical calling — techno — and hasn’t looked back. Elements of the genres he’s explored on his artistic journey continue to influence his evolving sound, and that’s the secret sauce behind his productions.
In October the Berlin-based technocrat released his debut Angel of Dissolution EP on his Nox Recordings. It’s a hard-hitting four-track effort that wraps its arms around all of the previously mentioned styles (and more). It arrives after the previously released Dream Pusher and Relic EP on Volute Records.
Ashes takes the helm of the final Big Shot Guest Mix of 2017. It’s a 16-track session featuring dark, unrelenting tracks by Dustmite, Regal, Kryptic Minds & Sleeper and The Scientifics.
He says of the mix: “The focus of this particular mix was to create a narrative around the Angel of Dissolution EP and to set the tone for my label, Nox, by pulling inspiration from the past and present; hinting at what can be expected in the near future.”
Limitations often spawn creativity. When we caught wind that The Umbrella co-founder Robert Picciotto (a.k.a Blacky II) was getting ready to release his Point of Light debut EP under his Material Witness moniker, we threw down the gauntlet and asked if he could craft an all-Brooklyn DJ mix. Picciotto accepted the challenge but took the necessary time to orchestrate it.
A few weeks later he emerged from the lab with an absolutely incredible 10-track session boasting dark, electro-fied techno cuts by Umfang, Beta Librae, Ciarra Black, The Creatrix, Via App and Kedr Livanskiy. He also includedthreeselections from his aforementioned EP.
Says Picciotto, who is also half of the borough’s Rinsed party crew, of his Big Shot Guest Mix: “All tracks were either written, produced, released, or set to be released by Brooklyn residents, Brooklyn-based labels and/or artists and labels integral to the Brooklyn electronic music scene by request of Big Shot Magazine.
“As a third generation Brooklynite, I’ve valued the underground sub and counter cultures surrounding nightlife, dancing, music, and art from a very young age. Included in the mix is only a small slice of the immense diversity available to the lucky residents with whom I share a home.”
