It’s finally time for another Finally Friday. I could bore you with the reasons of why I took such a long break, but let’s just look into the future. This time around I’m not going to force myself to post every single Friday. I realized that I ended up putting pressure on myself when there was absolutely no reason to do so.
So this will be a fresh start for this format. I will post about music and musicians that I fell like featuring. Pretty simple, right?
Dariio is starting off the Finally Friday reboot with these two promo mixes really showing off his range in track selection and electronic genres. Dariio and I go way back and I’m stoked he’s still dropping heat like this:
Check out Dariio on Mixcloud and give him a follow while you’re at it.
Stay up to date by subscribing to my posts or find me on social media if you want to connect or if you have a mix you want me to check out.
2020 started off good and is going pretty strong after my 2019 was a year full of trials, injuries and chronic pain. All this is behind me and although the world is flipping out over the Corona Virus, I am here to update you on the musical aspects of my life.
First of all, I reanimated Tiefhaus Records with its first release in a while by Raw Mean called “Sunrise”
I also have a new song coming out on March 20th. When John Beaver and I met up in Berlin on his European vacation we got inspired and wrote this monster in the hotel room after a club night. I spent the last year fine tuning the track while John tested it in countles sets. As of this writing the track isn’t released yet but you can check it out on soundcloud and actually pre-order it on Beatport! 🙂
Everyone has already heard the news. The festival has been postponed because of the Virus. John and I are going to continue working on the mixes as scheduled but will probably release them right before the new festival dates. As this caught us by suprise as well, we’re still deciding on how exactly to go about it.
At this point I just want to take the chance and thank everyone for their continued support! Cheers! RDMN.

Welcome to the weekend.
It seems a bit weird to mention myself in the title by name. I decided to go with it for SEO reasons. Otherwise feel free to read it as
“Finally Friday Tech House with myself” 😀
I’m still stuck in a slight one-week nostalgia. Last weekend I spent my birthday in Berlin. I met up with lots of old friends and hit up a couple of late night spots. The harder techno still isn’t really my cup of tea but I found my musical oasis in the tech house scene and I needed to represent with one of my own mixes. Inspired by the first party I went to I called this mix Basement Party… no frills or ethereal names 😀
Have a listen and groove on through the weekend. Cheers RDMN.

Friday is here! The word Friday is synonymous to the word Freedom to me, say it isn’t so!
It’s a very late Friday night here in Berlin… well for Berlin standards it’s actually time to start going out. But I just finished an 8 hour drive, which I can cross off my list of fun things to do this weekend, so I’ll be going out for my birthday tomorrow.
Tonight I want to get into the Berlin mood and I’m going to do this with Marc Eisenberg, who I met on Instagram, as a matter of fact. He DJs and promotes and organizes events. He’s a resident at Feier Bekenntnis Berlin and if I read it right he actually runs that show. I truly hope we can network further in the future to help me on my road back to my hometown Berlin.
The mix I’m going to feature is great driving music and it’s not mindless techno.. this mix is full of intelligent track selection and he blows through a variety of techno sub genres. It’s definitely a cool listen!
It is Coachella weekend #2 and I’m gonna keep it going with the Coachella themed mixes. This time I want to feature a mix by Michael Milano. This is his 6th annual Coachella mix. His mix is pretty much 100% full of mashups and also only includes tracks and samples from the Coachella 2019 lineup. I’ve done sample and mashup mixes before and I know it takes a ton of effort, patience and time to get it right. I’m happy to have come across Michael’s mixes. He’s been nothing but a supporter of ours in the past and I really appreciate that.
And to those asking me why I would promote other Coachella Mixes I can only say this:
The Coachella experience to me was always about connecting with people who are also on a Coachella journey. Even if that journey is an inherently different one for each of us, it does bring us together and gives us the ability to share these experiences with each other and grow. That’s why I felt like sharing Michael’s Coachella Mix journey today. I think artists grow faster when they grow together. Please show his mix, which peaked at the friggin 18th spot on the global Pop charts on Mixcloud, some love:
To everyone at Coachella and everyone wishing they could attend, I’m super excited to be part of this group of people who create these mixes for your trips to and from Coachella.. or just for listening at home or in the car to anywhere.. This is my 15th year producing these and it’s been a fun challenge each year and I really hope to see all of you and people like Michael next year again, bringing the same heat!
