Facta & K-LONE – Azure Ultra

Fantastic mix, wonderfully quirky cover art and just the right words by Mixtape Club and the artists themselves: Across 22 tracks of nearly meditative house and techno, Facta & K-LONE inject some unmistakeable Bristol pressure and swing into the Ibiza chill-out mix format – perfectly paced dance music for a hot summer’s day. In their…

Roberdo Raval – Sea Spirits Calling

A concoction of inebriating electronics, originally recorded for my brother from another mother Sam@chaishop.com’s virtual bday gathering in May 2021. Matching the occasion, it became a rather trancy and oldschoolish affair. There’s new tunes, there’s a classic banger from 2004, and there’s plenty of melodic vibes to get lost in between. Download link and tracklist…

Pugilist – Dimensions Mix 237

There’s really only one downside to this beautiful DJ mix by Pugilist: It calls for a big, gnarly sound system in a club or, even better, on a nocturnal festival dancefloor – and those remain few and little. Techno and Breaks throbbing along a metaphysical backbone of Bass music. Dimensions Festival · DIM237 – Pugilist

Sam Goku: The ‘Shine A Light’ On Mix

Melodically uplifting, sometimes even ecstatic – and then again deep and heady. Highly versatile and multi-layered. Rhythmically unorthodox for the prevailing 4-to-the-floor sound of his home country: Sam Goku is arguably one of the most interesting producers from Germany at the moment. That said, it’s exciting news to know that his debut album East Dimensional…

Calibre – RA.765

“Invent yourself and then reinvent yourself“. As beautiful and inspiring as this line from good, old Charles Bukowski might be, only very few musicians manage to successfully do so. The great majority of bands and producers invent themselves, with varying degrees of originality, but then fail to reinvent themselves, instead swimming in the same slough…

Illuvia – Isolatedmix 107

A beautiful selection of liquid Drum’n’Bass tunes, including many classics from the golden age of the genre. Illuvia, who’s responsible for this mix, just released his new album Iridescence Of Clouds on quality Ambient imprint A Strangely Isolated Place. A wonderful title that comes with an equally wonderful artwork, and the actual music is wonderfully…

Mesh Mix Series 009: Reid Willis

Max Cooper has been talking a lot about this guy recently. Which speaks for itself – just like the fact that he signed him on his Mesh imprint. First for the 2nd part of the 3D Reworks series, then for Mother Of, the second Reid Willis album which was released yesterday. Max found just the…

FWD144 – KiloWatts Live Set

Halfway through this 2-hour live set you might well start wondering if all these tunes were really produced by only one person, and one person alone. Transitioning effortlessly from ambientesque soundscapes to mellow Downtempo grooves and trippy Breaks, from glitchy rhythms to dope beats, leading us through deeply psychedelic patches just to soar up into…

Roberdo Raval / 11-2020

Ambient House, Breaks, Acid, Tech. Uplifting, mellow, ecstatic, inebriating, hallucinogenic. Bright and sunny at the beginning, turning rather dark and nocturnal towards the end. 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 Pits – HAWSMIX036

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…

Max Cooper – 3D Reworks 001

“Headphones on (it only works with headphones), eyes close, and you’ll be somewhere entirely different!” A truly great electronic music producers of our time goes 3D. The sound of Max Cooper has been pushing boundaries for quite some time already, his albums and live mixes are highly immersive listening experiences. Now he takes us one…

Addison Groove – Ilian Tape Podcast 049

A brand new Addision Groove DJ mix. Spells out to: We’re in for almost 2 hours of bass-heavy goodness from one of Bristol’s finest. “It’s a bit of an epic one for these epic times we are living in”, he says in the complimentary interview over at Ilian Tape.

Self-Portrait: Adam Pits
