Melt v2.9 – Gigantor (Evol Intent)

The boys over at the Melt crew have formally invited me to jump on board as part of the team, and as my first resident booking I will be closing out a warehouse with Gigantor (remember Evol Intent?)! I’ve traditionally been wary of jumping in with a crew for various reasons, but everyone involved seems to have a burning passion and good balance between party and professional. As a bonus, every DJ in the group is very experienced and skilled. This is a great environment to exist in from an artistic standpoint – there is nothing more beneficial than having people around you pushing you to improve.

Evol Intent was one of the most influential musical forces that I discovered as a teenager when first getting familiar with electronic music. Not only being able to see one of the founding members in 2019, but also being a part of the party (AND throwing it in a WAREHOUSE) is a massive massive massive move for me personally. I could not be more excited for this event.

We’ve all been working hard to make sure this one is a big success, from promotion, to performance, to production. All angles have been covered and we are ecstatic to make this happen for Phoenix. We’ve had a large void when it comes to drum and bass in warehouses, so this will definitely be a step in the right direction again for phoenix.

Tickets are available for $10 via bandcamp, grab a presale now and save some money at the door:

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!
