Warming up for Jamie Woon

People are extremely hyped about tomorrow's Jamie Woon concert, where I'm going to play some bass music as well. That's why I was back in Tilos Radio's Dzsungel Konyve show on tuesday, and dropped a few tunes I like these days to get in the mood. See you tomorrow at A38! ;) (My set starts around 8 mins in the 1st part and ends at the same time in part 3)

Budapest Bass Music podcast

A few months ago I've been asked to record a mix for Budapest Bass Music's brand new podcast series, finally I've managed to do it! BBM is a blog and a party series in Budapest, where all kind of bass-driven urban music goes, from hip-hop through all the mid-tempo stuff, what we call bass music nowadays, till' drum&bass. Since BBM represents so many styles, I've tried to put this approach into my mix as well. The set starts off with some oldschool and fresh 2-step / garage beats, continues with house and easy uk funky and ends up with some crazy sounds. Let me know how you like it!

Mentalien & MC Blend @ Budapest Jungle

The Budapest Jungle night with DJ Flight was definetely one of the higlights in 2011 for me, mostly because of Flighty's great dnb-selection and the nice crowd. I've played quite a varied set before her, dropped lots of classics, all time faves, and some of the tunes which I really like these days. While I was mixing, MC Blend was on the mic to hype the party-people. Actually this is the very first time I'm sharing a set which is featuring an MC, exciting! :)

Warming up for BBM pres. Roska - Part 2

Unexpectedly I was back again in Tilos Radio / Dzsungel Konyve last night, to continue the warm-up session for the Roska event.

Just click on the link below, the mix will start at 7:15 in the first part, and ends around the same time in part 3 (sorry for the shitty house tune in the beginning, it wasn't me, promise :) ).

UK Funky guestmix at Tilos

Yesterday I did another guest mix after last week's Flipside, this time at the legendary Tilos Radio's 'Dzsungel Konyve' show. In the one hour set i was focusing on the more "adult" (haha) side of uk funky, I played some tunes released by such labels as 3024, Night Slugs, Hotflush or Numbers. So if you like this sound, press play or download right now, and don't forget to mark the 23rd of June in your calendar, because I'm going to drop something similar at A38, next to Girl Unit and Mosca. ;)

Guestmix at Flipside, w00t.

Yesterday I've been playing a fun set at Fuzio Radio's one and only Flipside show, I played 2-step and uk funky mostly. Instead of being artsy, I just tried to drop some proper cheesy or less sophisticated tunes, so be careful if you're not into such stuff. ;) No download link this time, check my shiny head under the Ustream link!

3K Selection volume seven


Earlier this month I've announced on Facebook, that I'm planning to record another 'liquid oldies' set, but a few days ago I've changed my plans. It would have been a mistake to miss out a bunch of actual faves plus other goodies, and play the pre-2005 liquid funk music only. This is why the new chapter of 3K Selection podcast series consists both new and old drum&bass, mainly amen-driven liquid funk, and a bit of bristol and ruff headz sounds aswell. Many tunes are inspired by the early rave/hardcore era (and the last pick IS actually from that era - 1994), so putting smileys on the artwork was obligatory. :)

Bling Vol. 5.!

My first mix of the new year is all about heavy basslines, tribal drums and catchy vocals. In this uk funky and garage set I'm showcasing many great tunes made by some of my favourite artists.
