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!
