Hypnotic quality as usual from Sebastian Mullaert. But what really hits the mark is the vocal sample in this Wa We Wu track, taking you on a meditation on the willingness to give up hope.
Gotta love industrial sounds in modern dance music. Gourski & Appel take an old idea to the next level and present a 7-minute track made exclusively from sounds sampled in a dock setting. The result is intriguingly catchy, and the music video that comes with it intriguingly hypnotic.
“I recorded a mix for Resident Advisor stringing together an hour of danceable club tracks without any kick drums. I’ve been playing a lot of this stuff in my sets over the last few years and have been meaning to record a mix like this for a while.” Quite an exciting approach. Even more so…

Jon Hopkins’ last album would have been the perfect terminus for a musical career that burns out rather than fading away.

Ecstasy and…
Adam Freeland – a man who needs no further introduction to readers of this blog. He just dropped a brand new DJ mix for Solid Steel Radio and, no big surprise here, it’s pretty damn eclectic, diverse and catchy. Also he told some words about his life in the desert and his most recent creative…

While the Psytrance scene seems to be stuck in an endless loop of the same artists playing the same sound for many years already, other electronic music genres are getting deeper, more ethereal and even psychedelic in very fresh and innovative ways. What happens at the Ranch-o-Relaxo gatherings in Australia is a perfect example for…

Uone did it again and proved himself to be what his fellow country men refer to as a mad cunt behind the decks. His DJ set at Rainbow Serpent’s Sunset Stage is a bold mix of trippy House tunes, and of course it comes with the signature bawl-along factor of the Australian DJ. Quite some…
