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! ;)

Mentalien - Live at Sziget Festival, Colosseum stage - 18-08-2014

The final day of this year's Sziget Festival was definetely a milestone in the Hungarian drum&bass history... not because of my set, obviously. :) But there aren't many occasions when seven (!) international dnb acts (Black Sun Empire, Friction, Kasra, Mefjus, Ivy Lab, MC AD and Linguistics) are here in Hungary at the same time to play. It was a really exciting day, and since the guest DJs came from a wide range of dnb sub-genres, I tried to react on that during the afternoon with playing a little bit of everything, both old and new. Enjoy!

Mentalien - UKG set at Tilos Radio, 29-07-2014

I sat in with Shadam for DJ Ren in her radio show at Tilos Radio and decided to play a bunch of uk garage tunes I'm into these days. Expect some vocal 2-step, grimey basslines, a bit of house and amen breaks as well with some dodgy mixing, haha.
