I wanted to wait a little bit before paying homage to Tim. 28 is way to young.

I want to dedicate this Finally Friday post to him. I hope his case creates awareness for the mental struggles people face.

As mainstream as he became and as underground as I like to believe I am, his track Levels was game changing to me.

Please enjoy this live set. It’s just one of so many out there to check out.

cheers and r.i.p.

Alright people, I am back from a long but not long enough trip from Berlin. It has been a crazy couple of last weeks and I’ve been looking for something different, a bit more chilled out. I stumbled over the Electro Swing Crew, hailing from Hamburg, Germany.

I’ve had the pleasure of being to a Parov Stelar live show once and it was totally awesome. Like listening to house music at a festival but everyone is swing dancing and dressed up. Super awesome! Anyways check out this live set and possibly allow a new genre into your repertoire if you aren’t aware of this, yet.

Curious to see what else they’ll release in the future.

cheers RDMN

 

Welcome to a very special Friday. I’m posting this from the road because I’m visiting my hometown Berlin and I’m celebrating this Friday with a set by Berlin local Boys Noize. I’m probably going to have to fix some of the formatting on this post. This is my first time posting something from mobile 😅😎

I’ll update the track list as well

Have an awesome weekend. I know I will.

Cheers RDMN

I’m so glad Lunar sent me this live mix today. I usually post videos of live mixes but this Techno mix is so much gold I just really had to post it because it literally is my party mix for this friday and the weekend.

John “Lunar Vision” and I met back during the time when I started playing in the Sacramento area from around 2009-2011. Always a stand up guy and a pleasure to be at shows with. I have mad respect for him and the people in the Sacramento scene from back then.

If you want to know what my favorite type of Techno is apparently you just need to ask Lunar Vision (on SoundCloud) and Nathan Garrett (on MixCloud), who go back to back in this deep techno set from an All Things Trance event in Sacramento, recorded on 2/27/18.

This set starts deep and goes dark and filthy towards the end. I would have loved to hear this in some of the Berlin Clubs. It would definitely fit.

Check out the tracklist and get your weekend started right.

I was lucky enough to have experienced one of the Justice sets around 2007 at Coachella. It turned my house music world upside down.. Funk plus attack style cuts and edits.. I didn’t know what hit me. Unfortunately I can’t find a recording of that set, but this is the closest to that style they played back then. Still, this mix is my anthem into the weekend 🙂

It also inspired me to do this mashup using Justice and Wolfgang Gartner tracks:

Thanks for checking out this post! cheers 🙂
