Summer is hands-down my favourite season. Negating the fact my apartment has no AC, I pretty much love everything about it. The seasonal-shift coming out of the colder months is easily the best part. The injection of vitamin D is cleansing. Everyone starts to smile, outside activities become the norm, beer gardens pack out, the […]

Music from the likes of Burial, Boards Of Canada, DJ Shadow, Alix Perez, Bibio, Lapalux, Mister Lies, Tensnake, The XX, Matthew Dear and a whole heap more.

Put together a one hour promo mix for the upcoming White Noise event on May 6th at First Floor. It’s a combination of all things breaks with both old and new tracks throughout. Due to the nature of the event and the fact that the White Noise krew are more known for their dark 4/4 genres, the idea was to cover as much Breakbeat related scope as possible whilst not going too underground. Starting out on a banger to grab some attention, the first half is funky and upbeat with some more commercial tracks thrown in – the last half covers the Progressive side of things.

Been a while since my last post, so thought it was about time I got some new music flowing. Been hard at work on the decks lately and put together this mix. Clocks in at just under 80 mins. Combination of all things house; Progressive, Techno and everything in between. It’s relatively laid-back, but still with a funky vibe. Starts off with some Tech-House related tunes, later moving into some deep Prog.

Warning! Shameless self promotion contained within. 😉 Few weeks back I was booked for a down tempo hip-hop and trip-hop set. Genre’s Id never previously had the opportunity to play to a live crowd, and with being such a huge lover of hip-hop, trip-hop and all the beats genres (as you’ll probably notice from trawling […]

Iv been on a massive Tech-house and Minimal binge as of late. There’s something that I find extremely rewarding when mixing with said genres. Those slight adjustments and little tweaks that can totally change a track. The way the tracks are used as building blocks, enabling you to create and structure a musical journey.

Up until now I haven’t bothered using the blog for self-promotion – aimed to mainly concentrate on solid music related content that’s applicable to all. However, with the majority of readers mainly based in and around Melb, Aust, I thought there could be a chance that some might be interested. I know it may come off as a bit wankerish, all this self-promo biz, but if it’s any constellation I promise to keep event posting to a minimum. So when I do post about events, you can be guaranteed that they’ll only be of the highest standard and quality. After all, I’d feel embarrassed if people came along to a gig that wasn’t worth their time and effort.

To help celebrate the launch of the blog, I decided to make available a mash I did a while ago.

Recorded one hungover sunday morning, i never intended on putting this online. Starting out with liquid, moving into more percussive heavier sounds and ending on a high ‘hands in the air’ tip. Pretty much just a compilation of some awesome DnB tunes that have been rocking my box.
