Mentalien - Guestmix at MKFM 31-10-2013

I was asked recently to record a mix for the UK-based radio station, called MKFM, which is a pretty awesome! The radio show from Milton Keynes aired my mix yesterday evening and it was quite amazing to hear my own set playing from England. There is no deep concept behind the mix, I just wanted to grab a bunch of tunes and creat a one hour garage / house set for the dancing feet. I hope you'll like it, oh, and big ups to Kenty for making this happen!

Mentalien - Subba Podcast

I'm sure I don't have to introduce Subba blog to any Hungarian visitors, it's the legendary "trash" site where you can always find some hillarious content. The roots of this blog are going back to 1995, read about that a little here. Recently the blog started it's own podcast series, and I was asked to do the second part. I thought some nasty basslines and cheesy vocals would fit very well to the blog's profile, so I've recorded a 2-step / uk garage / uk funky set, let me know how you like it. :)

Mentalien - North Pole (new bass music mix up!)

To be honest with you, the garage-inspired house sound, which is dominating the bass music scene nowadays, is a bit too much for me. There are many great productions, obviously, but there are way too much cheap copies as well. Don't get me wrong, I love this sound, but if you eat the same thing every day, after a time you get sick of it, so it's better to give it a little pause and go other directions. Yesterday I did a one hour ustream-session and mixed up some great tunes, which are mostly, influenced by techno, and/or have a heavy drum programming. It was really liberating to mix these raw beats instead of the warm basslines, nice vocals and melodies. So at the end of the mixing session I thought this is something I should share, just to show something different, something I rarely do nowadays. Some mixings are just as raw as the tunes themselves, sorry for that, let's concentrate on the flow of the mix instead, hehe. Enjoy!

Back on the radio!

As some of you might remember, once I was running a show called 3K in my hometown's FM station, called Trio Radio, which I decided to end in february 2008. After a 5 year long pause I was asked to run a radio show at RCKO.FM, a new station which is available to listen online. The show is kind of a special one, because it's basically the home of the mighty Bladerunnaz crew, that's why one of the fixed features will be some free tickets to win for the next BLZ parties. You can check out the very first show here! I'm still trying to figure out how to build up the whole thing, so you shouldn't have big expectations while listening to it. :) Oh and don't forget to tune in live every second monday evening between 21 and 23pm!


BBM pres. Dusky warm-up at Together!

The warm-up for this saturday's Dusky party continued last night at Together, where I've played an hour of bass music, house and garage. Enjoy! ;)

It's 2013 already, but for one more post I will have another look on 2012, if you don't mind. Below you can check the list of my gigs from the whole year... it's a bit unbelievable to see how long this list is! I owe a big thank you to everyone who kept me busy through the year, special shouts are going out to the Bladerunnaz crew, DJ Ren and the Bonn massive for bringing unforgettable moments in my life! I also picked three of my mixes from the past twelve months, which I find the most special ones. If you want to know what kind of music kept me excited in 2012, make sure to check these mixes out!
