I-F

What more can be said about I-f? The veteran was the centerpiece of Den Haag’s scene in the 90s; he’s credited with pretty much spawning the electroclash genre with his 1997 track “Space Invaders Are Smoking Grass”, and headed one of the earliest and most influential internet radio stations, Cybernetic Broadcasting System. Is that enough? No. He’s also produced one of the finest ever DJ mixtapes – Mixed Up In The Hague Vol. 1.

I-f’s brand of dance music isn’t for the faint hearted. It’s burbling leftfield electro, wonky acid and raw glitchy techno which feels like Sonic the Hedgehog triple-boosted his way into a Dutch warehouse rave. You might hear some obscure italo-disco if around long enough, though.
