Yes yes, the garage mixtape series is back with it's 4th volume! The newest 'Bling' is a bit different, it's mostly UK Funky mixed up with some garage house tunes and other goodies. It's my first attempt to mix up some UK Funky tracks, so let me know what you think of the outcome. Enjoy it, and have a happy new year! ;)

New UKG set

After 3 volumes of the 'Bling' mix-series i'm back with a live uk garage set, which was recorded back in August, at Mokka Cuka (Sziget Festival). The mix consists mostly of 2-step tunes, no matter if it's cheesy vocal, or deep/dark stuff - i've tried to create a diverse thing here. People who checked out my previous garage mixes, will find lots of familiar tunes, also a dozen of the genre's classics, and some recent releases aswell. I hope you're gonna like this one! ;)

Back 2 back set with DJ Ren


About 2 weeks ago I was lucky enough to have a guest appearance in one of Hungary's oldest drum&bass show, called Dzsungel Konyve. We had a very nice back 2 back session with DJ Ren, we ran through lots of subgenres in dnb, from drumfunk to deep/liquid vibes. You can download or stream the 2 hours long show on these 4 links (4*30 minutes). Have fun, cause we had lots of it in the studio. :)

Podcast for mindennapi.hu

Hi all,

Lately I've been asked to do the very first episode of 'mindennapibetevo' blog's podcast. You should check the site to have an idea what it's about: http://mindennapibetevo.hu. There is also a short interview with me, but only in hungarian language. So if you are not a local soldier, i'm afraid you have to learn the language to learn more about me, hehe. The set is a mixture of liquid funk, deep stuff, bristol-sound, etc. I hope you're gonna' love it!

Reissue 04: Brazilian set!

In a few weeks I'm going to play on possibly the biggest party this year in Hungary, with artists like DJ Marky, Stamina MC and Total Science (last year's Marky gig was voted as the best party at drumandbass.hu). Thats why i decided to share my very own Brazilian Set as the 4th part of my reissue series. The set was aired originally in my radio show back in the summer of 2007. I hope it's going to bring back some good memories, and help you to warm up to Bladerunnaz's "The Brazilian Job" party, which is going to happen on the 17th of april! ;)

Bling, bling, bling

So my last garage mix was out back last summer, sorry for the delay. The idea of the 3rd part of Bling-series was born a few months ago, and finally i've managed to record it now. It's a bit different, the set contains mostly "deeper" kind of 2-step (the El-B style, you know), and some bumpyness, oldschool garage house and 4*4. Feedbacks are welcome - as always. :)
