Mentalien - Live at Basshaze - Klub Dole, Bratislava 19-12-2015

My first gig in Bratislava will be a night I'll remember for a long time! This episode of Lixx's series, called Basshaze was one of those ideal drum&bass parties where everything goes smoothly and everything clicks. Klub Dole is a nice little club with a decent Funktion One soundsystem and a well-equipped DJ-booth which is not separated from the crowd more than it should be, so it's easy to get on their wavelength. Moreover, the Slovakian party people proved to be very open-minded about the music, it was refreshing to see all the positive reaction on the different sub-genres which were played during the night. First I was playing my current and all time faves by myself, but later we did a short back2back session with DJ Ren as well, during which we went a lot deeper and reached more experimental fields of dnb. You can listen to the recording of my solo mix from the night, enjoy! :)

Mentalien - 160170MIX Vol. 1.

With this new mix-series I just decided to start, I'll try to focus on the rather experimental side of drum&bass and jungle, you can expect all kinds of tunes around 160-170 BPM, which are influenced by juke, footwork, hip-hop, grime or something else. This mix features a lot of big favorite tunes of mine, from musicians like Ivy Lab, Sam Binga, Moresounds or Fixate, so if you're into what those guys are doing these days, you should give this set a listen or two. ;)
