Deep, hypnotic Techno at its best: “DJing is so much more than just swapping records. It is – and should be – a reflection of the person that’s mixing. Right now I like to do mixes as shapes or waves. Sort of like small sculptures of sound. This is also how it turned out this…
What Uone delivered at this year’s Rainbow Serpent Festival is so deep, trippy and melodic that it almost qualifies as some kind of Trance music. However, it’s something different, something very streamlined and clubby. The Australian artist describes his outstanding DJ set as ‘the debut of my new Serpent Charmer show’ – definitely something to…
Grooving somewhere between an afterhour dancefoor and the Chillout, Prado delivers a DJ mix that is wonderfully deep and trippy.
Nicolas Jaar delivers a new DJ mix for Resident Advisor and, no surprise here, it’s a class of its own. Excellent track selection from a multitude of genres, skilfully blended into one smooth listening experience. Download Link
There’s never been more good music out there than right now. Here’s 10 random examples. Scuba – Claustrophobia His early work on the field of Dubstep and Bass Music was and still is magnificent. Then Paul Rose took a musical detour to the shallows of hands-up-everybody land. Now he’s back with a…
This DJ mix by Mateo is just as much deep, ethereal World Music as it is slow, shuffling club groove.
Speaking loosely, Hodge’s music fits into that middle-ground between Dubstep’s weight and Techno’s fluidity that Bristol producers have a knack for doing so well. That’s what FACT mag says about its latest mix, and that’s a very accurate description of what you get to hear. Raw, bass-heavy and wonderfully tripped-out, yet with an uplifting twist.…
I said it before, and I’ll say it again: When it comes to deep, hypnotic Techno music for modern trance dance rituals – this is it. For the latest XLR8R podcast, Sebastian Mullaert presents a 90-minute segment of a liveset he played in Israel. The Swedish producer remains a class of his own.
Pinch’s new DJ mix for XLR8R is nothing for the faint-hearted. The head honcho of Tectonic and Cold Recordings delivers a fairly abstract collage of rhythm and sound that has a raw, delirious, industrial vibe to it, and that seems to be made for a big sound system. U.K. Bass driven sound at it’s best!
Fat square basses, tripped out delays, enigmatic build-ups, rich beat textures, dreamy melodies: Alex Banks delivers the goods. As he remarks quite appropriately in his interview with Groove magazine, this meticulously crafted studio mix is rather “[…] a sonic collage than a DJ mix and includes a lot of detail that would get lost in…
Heavily dope and jazzy Footwork mix by Bristol’s finest Addison Groove.
Four-time World DJ Champion Vekked performs his winning 2015 DMC Online routine.
Seventy-seven minutes of bass-heavy awesomeness, delivered by Griff, my favourite artist from the thriving Australian Glitch Hop scene. The warm and organic sound that is so typical for the Melbourne based artist has a very human, almost hand-played vibe to it. Also I love how it is deeply psychedelic in the most progressive, most forward-thinking…
Once again there’s been loads of great music at last weekend’s 3000° Festival, this one being my favourite from the umtsa-umtsa side of things: German producer Jonas Saalbach delivered a deeply hypnotic live set that could be labelled as Melodic Techno or Neo Trance.
A deep and melodic amalgamation of genres like Downbeat, Dub Techno, Break Beats and Electronica, creating a 72-minute musical journey.
It’s getting increasingly hard to get me excited about four-to-the-floor Electronic Dance Music. However, the Extrawelt guys never fail to do so. Arne, one half of the German duo formerly known as Spirallianz and Midimiliz, delivers a deeply hallucinogenic DJ mix that takes some pleasantly unexpected turns.
One hour of pure dopeness: DJ Nu-Mark of Jurassic 5 presents a wild mash-up of skits and samples, of old and new tunes – everything mixed, cutted and blended with deadly precision.
Deep, dark and trippy Drum’n’Bass sounds from UK’s finest Biome. Only 40 minutes, but still a great DJ mix.
To put it plain and simple, this is an absolutely stunning mix. Deep, melodic, full of changes in rhythm and texture, and last but not least extremely danceable: Alex Banks ticks all the boxes of what I consider to be good dance music, as a producer and as a DJ.
Toby Dreher is back with another DJ mix, and once again the likeable Berliner proves himself to be among Germany’s finest Dub Techno talents: Very deep, very trippy, very dubby, very good!
