Mentalien - Sunshine Selection at Friday, A38 - 5th June 2015

I had tons of fun yesterday afternoon at Friday, so I thought I'll share an hour of the recording and say thank you to everyone who joined us at A38 ship. :)
I did this live mix between 6 and 7pm, just when the first glass of Long Island (and Mojito) cocktail started to hit in and when the crowd started to get busy, while the sun was almost ready to hide behind the hills of Buda. The set is really not about the tight mixing, so you better focus on the selection and vibes. ;)

Bladerunnaz Tubecast 004 - Mentalien

The Bladerunnaz-guys asked me to record the next episode of their 'Tubecast', which is a mix-series published on youtube with great visuals to watch. It's not a new thing, but I love the idea, that a mix is accompanied with nice visuals, so I gladly accepted the "invitation". I wasn't really trying to select strictly fresh dnb releases, I just browsed through the music I purchased in the past one year and picked a few rollers that will make you wanna dance and mixed them up with some summery, vocal liquid funk tunes. I kinde like the flow and double-drops in the mix, but I'm really curious how you like it, so let me know! PS.: The visuals were created by Spec VJ Worx, thanks for that!

Here's my first mix in 2015, it's packed with nice drum&bass rollers made by great producers like Digital, Nu:Tone, Need For Mirrors, Skeptical, OM Unit or Calibre. This mix is also a kind of warm-up set for the Bladerunnaz Bday Bash, which is going to be held on the 7th of February at Tesla, with Marcus Intalex and DRS, plus DJ Ren and myself at the decks!

My gigs in 2014

We're almost at the end of January 2015, but for one more post I have get back to 2014 and all the great gigs I had through those 12 months. Two of my biggest music-related dreams came true in 2014: I had my debut-gig in the UK and I was invited to play at my favorite festival, Elevate. Both of them are huge milestones in my so-called carreer, but there were several amazing parties here in Hungary as well. I enjoyed playing alongside talented artists like Zed Bias, Breach, DJ Die, Calibre, DRS, Kingdom, Dbridge, Jubei, SP:MC, Halogenix, Kasra, Friction, Mefjus, Lakosa, Random Movement, Fracture, Tessela, Source Direct Blu Mar Ten, and of course the Hungarian massive. Big up and a huge THANK YOU to all who were involved!

UP Podcast #60 – Mentalien (Budapest Bass Music)

I forgot to share my latest uk garage and bassline mix here, but better late than never, right? Urbanplayer.hu asked me to record a mix, and I've decided to put a lot of nasty basslines in the selection and mix it up with some mellow 2-step vibes.
