TJ Hertz, aka Objekt is not only the hottest DJ booking on the planet right now, but with his polyrhythmic mixing style he is a genuine innovator of the craft – who’s also not afraid to drop a banger when required. Objekt is our DJ of the year for 2018, and his impeccable Cover Mix is a shining testament as to why.

“For my Mixmag cover mix I just wanted to give readers an idea of some of the things I’ve been playing out in my sets recently. With only an hour or so to play with I decided not to go too crazy with the BPM ranges or polyrhythmic excursions of other recent mixes of mine, but I still wanted to thread together my usual broad range of styles while keeping it relatively accessible and party-friendly overall – at least by my standards.

"It’s mostly new(ish) material with a couple of older records thrown in, weaving its way through techno, breakbeat, electro, deconstructed club, garage and acid – a good example of what I might play in the first hour of a longer set, perhaps, before potentially venturing further into faster electro or IDM or jungle or slowing it way down later on.”
