Jon Hopkins – Singularity

Jon Hopkins’ last album would have been the perfect terminus for a musical career that burns out rather than fading away. However, he faced the extremely high anticipations and released another album. Singularity might not be quite as groundbreaking and innovative as the last album – but it surely is a worthy successor. Ecstasy and…

Adam Freeland – Solid Steel Mix 2018

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…

The Oddness – Live at Ranch-o-Relaxo

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 – Sunset Stage at Rainbow Serpent 2017

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…

Stephan Zovsky – Live @ Fusion Festival 2016

The fluffy chord sounds at the very beginning are somewhat reminescent of Peter Gun’s sunshine sound from around 2004. Then there’s passionate and rejoicing vocals. And at the very end, Dr. Hofmann drives by on his bicycle. During his set at Fusion Festival’s Tanzwüste, Stephan Zovsky delivered a really fresh, energetic and multi-facetted take on…

Ulf Eriksson – Boiler Room Upfront 060

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…

Uone – Rainbow Serpent 2016 DJ set

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…
