The thirteenth edition of the microcastle podcast welcomes Petros Manganaris aka Echonomist. Drawing early inspiration from Maurizio, Carl Craig, Black Dog and Echocord, the Greek artist found a unique sonic space, eventually leading to releases on Aeon, Connaisseur Recordings, Moodmusic, Rotary Cocktail and Upon You. Now driven by his boundless creativity, Petros continues to evolve, tweaking his edgy and raw yet musical, timeless sound.
A friend of the label for some time, Echonomist now crafts the thirteenth edition of the podcast with an exclusive studio mix. In a journey spread across sixty magical minutes, Petros showcases his impeccable taste and superb programming skills, intertwining deep, techno and afro sensibilities. It’s an uncanny scope and one which gets wrapped up in an unforgettable cosmic storyboard. Enjoy.

3 QUESTIONS to RON FLATTER:
Q: Your mix is full of storytellers. Do you still remember the first records you bought once?
A: Unfortunately I don´t remember the name of my first record but it was from the record story called Bongofishrecordstore in my hometown Halle and I bought 2 Acid Techno vinyls.
Q: You´re in the business about 20 years yet. What do you think did change most during this time?
A: Hair and clothes changed the most. Only Techno stayed the same. Nowadays everything feels so much faster but that isn´t bad at all. I´m not the „everything was better before“ guy. I´m happy to see things developing and I´m always curious what´s happening next.
Q: We´ve heard there is a new album coming next year. Are there any more details to talk about yet?
A: I really can´t wait to have this one out. The name of the album will be „Muscle Of Synths“ and will contain 10 tracks. It´s a dancefloor album. I just received the mastered files, so I´m really looking forward to March/April 2018.

New Ron Flatter on Katermukke comes with that crystal clear for-to-floor sound which have been developed as some kind of signature tune by the Berlin label. Ron himself is back after we haven’t heard of him releasing any sounds for a lone time. Much appreciated to let the fresh tune drop into our ears.
