  • Funk D'Void has been announced as the latest DJ for the long-running Balance mix series. Lars Sandberg has been a staple of Slam's Soma Recordings since the raucous techno of his debut EP, Jack Me Off, dropped back in 1995. 2001's soaring "Diabla" is the track for which he is best known, with disparate DJs making it one of that year's biggest. His house and techno transmissions have been mostly put-out from his own Outpost Recordings since 2010, with something like a dozen 12-inches released under his name since. Balance 22 is Sandberg's third commercial mix (after previous efforts for Cocoon and Soma) and follows on from Balance mixes by Nic Fanciulli, Deetron and Henry Saiz. "My inspiration for Balance 22 stems from listening to the Back To Mine compilation series of the previous decade," says Sandberg. "A particular memory was imprinted on me from a long car journey back from the beach with friends when we listened to one of the releases without speaking for two hours, completely lost in the whole magic of the day together." The two-disc mix features a number of exclusives: Arkist's "Effingham PL," Guy Andrews' "Confuted" and an unreleased Psycatron remix of "Diabla" appear on disc one, while disc two has Lee Webster and Joris Voorn nestling in among 22 other selections.
