Mentalien - Conversion (drum & bass mix)

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!

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.

Mentalien - Liquid Oldies (3K Selection Vol. 4.)

Here is a heart-warming liquid funk mix for all the soulful drum & bass lovers. I recorded this set a few years ago, the speciality of this selection is that it contains only pre-2006 vinyl releases, so basically I was focusing on the golden-era of this genre. Enjoy! ;)
