It’s been a while since I recorded a DJ mix, and even longer since it had a notable amount of four-to-the floor tracks in it. Go here to download the file,…
Adam Freeland. New DJ mix. Titled ‘From The Desert, For The Forests‘. Hashtag Psych Breakbeat. We’re in for a real treat.

Long gone are the days when terms like psychedelic or trance were reserved for the junkie space pirates inhabiting the subculture with this very name, and when these terms were used by outsiders with a somewhat derogatory connotation. While major Psytrance festivals have turned into a neo-spiritual version of EDM events, urban hippsters and other…

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 – 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 grand master of so-sweet-and-melodic-it’s-almost-kitsch-but-it’s-not Bass Music presents a beautiful mix of deep Ambient and Downbeat tunes for Ransom Note. „I’ve done chilled and ambient mixes in the past which covered my influences over the years, whereas this mix features a lot more recent material of mine and stuff I’d get on promo that I…
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…
