Live @ Night Terrace, Aglomerat

I’ve been known for years as a connecting bridge between genres, and last Saturday at Aglomerat Club I was challenged to play one of such crazy sets, from 120 to 140 BPM. I wouldn’t agree to play a straight Psytrance set anymore as I’ve moved forward, but it was a challenge indeed for me as a DJ to guide the crowd through a few music genres throughout the set so the curiosity won.

Where I’m going to musically

Here’s my recorded live set for you, almost half an hour longer than planned. It’s one of those sets that may seem slow-paced at first, but by the end, people were screaming for more.

Artbat @ Bondinho Pão de Açúcar for Cercle

I like listening to DJ sets, and sometimes I like to watch live videos as well. I usually keep them in the background when doing things, dancing to the beat.

And when it comes to videos, no one can compete with Cercle. I’m sure you heard about them, but if you don’t — definitely scroll through their YouTube channel. These guys organise performances is breathtaking places of France (and more recently, outside of it too) and stream live videos with insane production quality.

Anyway, I’m going to put some of my such videos here, and maybe some of you gonna like it too.

Today’s — Artbat’s set on a mountain in Rio de Janeiro:

Favourite moments: 7:48, 16:40, 21:55, 33:54, 58:10, 1:03:30.

Rave Podcast 101

May 2019. Brand new format

Yes, I’m back with Rave Podcast from almost half a year break! It was a bit longer than I expected, but now I’m really pumped to be back and I hope it was worth waiting.

The show got quite a few changes: there will be no guest mixes anymore, so just a straight 1-hour mix from myself, broadcasted on Digitally Imported radio Progressive. And there’s a visual update to the podcast artwork, which I hope you like too.

Let me know what do you think about it!

Live @ Open To Close

Many asked if I recorded the set from my Open To Close last Saturday, and the answer is yes! The full set in high-quality streaming is up on SoundCloud now.

Due to some personal events, it was probably the most emotional set for me ever, and you can clearly see the reflection of this in the tracks I’ve played. Thank you everyone for staying with me all five hours long, from start to finish.

Listen to the first three hours especially closely as this is where I am musically at the moment for the most part, and you’ll see me doing more like this.

The Guest Mix @ Prostranstvo on Megapolis FM

Music genres often exist in parallel worlds. Ask psy-heads what they think of Progressive House and most say it’s pop and cheesy; for the Techno people ‘Psytrance’ is a bad word, and so on.

But I have a love and passion for all kind of underground music: from groovy and hypnotic to driving and heads-down. I believe that Progressive House, Trance, Techno, and Psytrance can be blended together within one DJ mix, or even within one event, ultimately creating a whole new level of the musical journey.

Yesterday I had a privilege to play my guest mix on a Russian nationwide radio Megapolis FM in Prostranstvo show, hosted by Michael Demos and Miss YoYo, and I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to showcase my vision.

You’ll see me doing more of this later this year at my 5-hours open-to-close set, but for now, enjoy a sort of ‘condensed’ version of Progressive-to-Psy in this 1-hour guest mix aired yesterday:

Live sets from Moscow

My two recorded live sets from the last weekend are up online on SoundCloud.

I rarely upload live sets as home listening never feels the same as when you experience this on the dancefloor, but this time I’ve decided to make an exception. The event production was so huge, so I wanted to share at least a piece of the vibe with the people that weren’t there.

And yes, as I played not one, but two sets on the same event, something that practically never happens.

Here’s a quick backstory.

Initially, I was booked as a closing DJ. Two days before the event I contacted the organisers saying that I would like to arrive at the venue in advance, before the doors open – I always do this when I can, to listen to the sound system, get familiar with the DJ booth and the crew. Everything was fine and agreed, and then the promoter said: “If you have enough strength and have a desire, you can also open it.” I didn’t think long and agreed.

On the one hand, playing two sets at the beginning and at the end of the event is difficult, but it was interesting to accept such a challenge to evaluate my own strength (especially considering that the opening set turned out to be an impromptu as I found out about it just two days before the event).

On the other hand, I wanted to show how to open a Trance event: not from the “140 BPM progressive,” as many Psytrance DJs think is right, but in a proper way — nice and deep, with music that greets guests and sets the mood for the rest of the night. I have already spoken about the role of the opening DJs and I will speak more for sure, I believe this is such an important topic.

Anyway, here’re my sets, I hope you enjoy. Feel free to drop a comment, what do you think?

The Guest Mix @ Digital Emotions with Fonarev — 2

Psytrance is the music that I love, but those listeners who have been following me for a long time probably also know about my love for deeper sound: progressive house, trance and even techno. In this guest mix for Vladimir Fonarev’s Digital Emotions, I decided to demonstrate this sound to new listeners.

His return back to Moscow was bright and necessary
