D-Node 163: Israel Vines | Borrowed Language

Currently based in Los Angeles but a Midwesterner at heart, Borrowed Language label owner Israel Vines discovered techno music as so many growing up in Michigan did: via the sounds of the Belleville Three and Underground Resistance. He started DJing soon thereafter, and was later instrumental in throwing the ‘Real-ism’ event in Lansing, which would feature Jay Denham, Robert Hood, and Dan Bell. Moves between Chicago and Detroit followed, and included a three-year stint at Gramaphone Records, a Chicago institution where the likes of Derrick Carter and DJ Heather cut their teeth. Like Surgeon and Rob Hall before him, Israel’s approach to DJing is all-inclusive, incorporating classics, house, techno, and dubstep rhythms into the fold to create a sound that’s far from purist ― and Borrowed Language’s future releases look set to reflect this open-minded, eclectic aesthetic as well.

The bio gets realized in this mix for D-Node, where some of the best techno tracks from the past few years and a couple of classics are combined with a mastery of layering and timing. Hear what it means to mix a DJ set.
