Monika Kruse @ Montparnasse Tower Observation Deck for Cercle

I continue to share my favourite videos (see the previous note about it).

This time it’s a techno set on the Montparnasse tower from the owner of Terminal M – Monica Cruz. I don’t even remember when I would have been so enjoying a techno set; This is exactly the kind of techno that I really like right now.

Take a look and listen:

Favourite moments: 7:32, 13:50 (a terrific track and later on the eighteenth minute), 42:08 (Victor Ruiz, and then another stellar track from him along with Thomas Schumacher). Then everything is fine too, so I don’t even write timing.

I’ll leave the audio version here too, I will listen in on my runs:

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.

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.

Live @ Psyler Room

Last Saturday I played a 1-hour set at Psyler Room — it’s a DJ live stream similar to Boiler Room, but with no people dancing around.

It turned out as a quite intense mix of Progressive, Techno, and Psytrance by the end, and this a glimpse of what you can expect from my Open-To-Close set next week on April 20th.

Listen to the set on SoundCloud:

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:

Rave Podcast 098

Special guest of the month: Datacult

July’s show is quite unusual: as you know I’m a Psytrance music producer, but I also have a love and passion for a deeper side of music which I would like to showcase for you today. I like how the Psytrance labels now embrace that deeper sound as well, as we see more of such music coming out from the names like Nano Records, Iono Music, JOOF, Iboga etcetera, they all seem to realise how fresh it now.

And for the second hour, we have a guest mix from Datacult, a very talented German producer and sound designer.

Special guest of the month: Ekahal

June’s podcast starts with some kind of a Techno’ish psytrance, which I believe we’ll hear more in the future as these two genres will emerge into something new and underground. Also, this episode featuring some well-known artists as well as some very new producers who just made their first track, it really warms my heart when I find such amazing talents.

And for the second hour, we have a really psychedelic guest mix from a Greece artist Ekahal. He just released his debut album on Digital Nature Records, and this guest mix is his album presentation.
