So again it’s Friday and we made it another week. High five yourself for that one.
Since we’re all high fiving ourselves already I decided to celebrate this Friday with a little bit of mixing fun of my own. Still working on the setup and what angle to use bla bla bla, but the sound is kickin and that’s what counts.
Thanks for joining me in my personal space.

I’m really curious about something I’m about to test out. It’s this new streaming portal for musicians called choon. Designed to have its own payment ecosystem the entire thing is powered by the Etherium blockchain. Check out their website if you haven’t googles it already:
Some familiar faces are involved: Gareth Emery, Ashley Wallbridge and Bjorn Niklas, who I still remember from the Torque days at Ruby Skye in San Francisco.
This is one of the most interesting things in digital music distribution and streaming I’ve heard of in a long time and I can’t wait to see its mechanics work in a live environment.
So when I received a beta invite I just had to upload a couple of tracks to try it out. They had to be brand new, since nothing published or under contract is eligible. So I hurried and polished up my two latest projects.
The first one called “Stranger” is sort of a downtempo breaks track that I made recently. I like to make all kinds of music and enjoy each break away from house music 🙂
The second track called “Neon Dark” sounds more like something people may be used to hearing from me. It’s been in the works for a while and after adding a punch of different things I decided to strip it back down to the current version. It’s my personal underground party soundtrack 🙂
For now I have to say that choon came along at a very convenient time, because I was looking for a solid outlet and got a bit tired of the entire label scene. I have high hopes for this platform and I’m keeping a close eye on its development. It could possibly become the kind of outlet for my music I’ve been looking for lately!
If you haven’t heard of Roger Sanchez yet, it’s certainly something to check out. He rocks 2 to 4 decks seamlessly and his house music track selection is nostalgic but fresh. He creates his own effects and cuts using only CDJs.
If this doesn’t want to make you move, I can’t help you 🙂

Let’s celebrate with a personal idol, Stephan Bodzin! This dude makes the kind of dirty techno electro sounds I strive for when I happen to feel dirty, techno and electro. He has the most iconic “bass face” in the scene and is a constant reminder of how dope it is to be able to make music yourself… and in this case play it completely live.
He even plays my absolute Bodzin-favorite “Tron” at around 51:38… so much filth in those basslines 🙂
Check out the tracklist below, cheers!

If you want to recommend a kick ass set for me to feature just get in touch. I’m always looking for new sets!
I know, I know… this may not be as “techy” as some of you like, but Erick Morillo is an idol and just an all around fun DJ to jam out to. If you’ve ever had the pleasure of attending one of his shows you know what I’m talking about.
Thanks, MixMag for bringing him out and now go get ’em, Erick.. I’m gonna shut up and dance through the office 😉
