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?

Track of the week: Shiva Sunrise (Djantrix Remix)

Laughing Buddha is a master of Psychedelic sound, but things get even better when Djantrix is on the remix duty. This is the kind of uptempo Psytrance I like a lot for its crazy energy, cutting edge sound design, and melodic components. And of course uncompromising quality, as always from Digital Om Productions.
