Two drum&bass mixes from the vault

If you are a follower of my facebook and mixcloud pages, you could have seen already that I've uploaded two of my older drum&bass mixes in the past few weeks. One of them is full of male vocal music, while the other one is in a brazilian-mood. I received a lot of nice feedbacks on these mixes back in 2007, that's why I tought they're worth a re-upload. To be honest, the mixing doesn't sound very nice after so many years, but hopefully the selection of music will compensate for the dodgy transitions. ;)

Gigs archive and personal faves of 2013

Just like a year ago, and two years before, I'm putting a post here again, which sums up my previous year. Honestly, I didn't expect that 2013 will be as good as 2012 was... for example, not many experiences can top the awesome fact, that I had three great gigs in Germany. Despite my expectations, I had a LOT more gigs in the past twelve months than in any of the previous years, and I also re-started doing radio shows, which makes me feel quite happy. Thanks to all the promoters and DJs who were there to cause me unforgettable moments!

I've picked three mixes from the ones I did in the past year, to showcase what I was into in 2013, give them a listen if you haven't done like that so far!

Mix ’n match – No #2 Mentalien special mix for Rebellive

Wow, I've completely forgot to talk about this really interesting project on my blog... I was asked by the Hungarian fashion-blog, called Rebellive, to be a model for their next photo shooting! Sounds completely insane, right? But the concept behind this project is quite interesting and complex actually. They are trying to bring two different worlds closer to eachother, the music and the fashion scene. To reach their goal, Rebellive started a monthly coloumn, called Mix & Match. I had to record a podcast, while they asked famous Hungarian designers to provide some of their clothing in which I can pose for the Rebellive crew's camera-girl. I've tried to reflect on the style of the photos and on the clothes - especially on the Wonderground pieces - with my music, that's why I've recorded something more "edgy".
