Mentalien - Garage set at Hi Hat Heat 04-02-2017

The last uk garage party in Instant, before its moving to a new address, surprised me: while I was playing moderate 4x4 garage beats from 10PM, the basement got packed with party people in just twenty minutes, it was a full house almost. It was an unusual, but quite a pleasant experience for such an early time of the night, I was very happy to see so many people enjoying my warm-up set. The Hi Hat Heat series will continue very soon, listen to this vinyl only mix a couple of times until then. ;)

Latest mixes plus the list of my gigs in 2016

Just trying to catch up here quick, so let me list the latest mixes and live recordings I've shared on other corners of the internet in the last couple of weeks.

Mentalien - Live at Bass Camp Pre-NYE - A38, 27-12-2016

I loved my last gig in 2016, it was a great closure of a year, which undoubtedly was one of the most difficult one, not only for me but for many others as well. Fortunately we had a lot of good music in 2016, which helped to forget the bad stuff. Mostly I've played vinyl releases from the last 12 months... dnb, jungle and halftime faves. This summer's Bass Camp festival was clearly one of the best musical experiences of 2016, so I was verry happy to have - almost - the same crew and same friends around for this stress-free pre-nye party, thank you everyone! No TL/DL, sorry.

Mentalien - Live at Hi Hat Heat - UK Garage Night 19-11-2016

In case you haven't heard of it, Hi Hat Heat is pretty much the only party-series in Budapest, Hungary, which focuses solely on UK Garage music. The series takes place in the basement of Instant and the residents besides myself are the biggest fans of the genre in this country: Waxman, Raw-Soul and Sirmo. I think we never had a night so far, where sooner or later the dancefloor didn't get packed with party people going crazy... the vibe of these events are just awesome! This time I've played at the peak of the night, between 2 and 4 AM, we had a full house and I didn't hold back anything. I've tried to move between sub-genres, but I played only dancefloor oriented stuff, and it was a lot of fun to do so! Enjoy! :)

Here is a one hour long slice of what I've played a couple of weeks ago at a new venue, called Kikoto. It's been ages since I've shared a mix, in which I'm focusing on house music, that's why I'm quite curious if you like the selection or not. Let me know! :)No TL/DL, sorry.

Mentalien - Dzsungel Könyve 2016.11.15

In the middle of November I was back on the radio airwaves again, as it was time for another Dzsungel Konyve show at Tilos Radio, accompanied by DJ Ren. During my one hour slot, I was focusing only my current drum&bass faves, fortunately there were a lot to show! :)
