Full Moon Festival

I have some very exciting news! I’ve been booked to close out Full Moon Festival this month. This is easily our biggest recurring local-fueled music festival, and I’ve been dying to play on Timothy Heights fantastic PA. Timothy is a very talented audio engineer, and he has arguably the best sounding system in the state. This will be a fantastic opportunity for me to give downtown Phoenix a taste of what I consider to be some of the hottest techno out, on one of the hardest hitting systems we have to offer. 50,000 watts of BASS!

We’ve been hosting a stage at this festival for quite a while now, and previous dates have seen us bring the likes of Dustin Zahn, Developer, and a booking for Ø [Phase] that sadly fell through due to travel delays. Needless to say, this is going to be an extremely fun night and I cannot wait to give those subwoofers a nice workout.

Rewindit.FM 2 Hour D&B Set

I have put together a two hour drum and bass special for the London (UK) based internet radio station http://www.rewindit.fm. Initially our plan was to air a techno set, however after reviewing my stuff on soundcloud they requested that I put together a two hour drum and bass set instead. Naturally I was happy to oblige, as drum and bass is the reason I discovered most of the electronic music that I currently enjoy.

My pallete of drum and bass music is absolutely massive, so it was a little difficult to choose tracks for this mix simply because there were so many that I wanted to include. I played it through a few times to get the energy just right, fine tuning the track selection after each session. I settled on an arrangement that let me exercise a few different styles of mixing, and one that exudes quite a varied spectrum of emotion.

Expect this mix to start off slow with cuts from Metalheadz and similar labels, with a gradual increase of energy taking you to some heavier stuff off of MethLab, eventually moving into festival grade double drops and bangers, and ending with liquid Lenzman style rollers and eventually a few sentimental Offworld tracks to close it off properly.

Track list will be posted here tomorrow as well as the soundcloud link with download enabled. The set will be live at this time tomorrow, and you can stream it via mobile app on either Android or iOS. Links are available for both on their website. Enjoy!

6AM Global Vibe Radio Contest

Recently, www.6am-group.com hosted a mix contest. The rules were simple – limit of 60 minutes, must be a fresh set, and must be techno. I love a challenge, so naturally I took it on and submitted a mix. My rough objective when assembling this set was to see how high i could push the energy with only 60 minutes, while also keeping the mixing as tight as possible. I’m fairly happy with the outcome, there is only one spot i would re-assess if I were to do the whole adventure again (see kas:st to fautzi).

I picked songs from some of my favorite labels at the moment, and included a throwback from my hardcore days in 2007 to finish it off at a high energy point. Labels included:

ARTS
Affin
Bpitch Control
Children of Tomorrow
Counterweight
Delsin Records
Edit Select
FLASH Recordings
Mary Go Wild Black
Mord
Perc Trax
Phantasy Sound
Planet Rythm
Polegroup
Soma Records
Sonic Groove

The mix wasn’t chosen as a contest winner, but I’m happy with the result regardless. Enjoy!
