TONIGHT (16th Nov)! Quexotic Adventures 4th Anniversary Special

16 November 2013

Join us tonight for a special show as we celebrate 4 years of Quexotic Adventures on nsbradio.co.uk. I’ll be trying to squeeze as many as possible of my favourite progressive and psychedelic breaks of the past year into 2 hours, and probably enjoying a little tipple and some cake. Come and join the party in the chatroom 🙂

Quextal presents Quexotic Adventures live on NSB Radio Sat 7pm (UK time) 4th Birthday Special Sat 16th Nov 7pm GMT

Special guest on QA this week:
Unconscious Mind(s)!

14 March 2013

This Saturday 16th March, very special guest Unconscious Mind(s) will be joining me live in the studio for Quexotic Adventures, kicking off from 7pm GMT on NSB Radio.

Darren has been pushing psybreaks forwards in his uniquely melodic yet hard-hitting style ever since his first tune, FD Psybreaks, which was signed to Ayra after they heard it on this very show, way back in 2009 🙂 A slew of originals and remixes have followed since, including the album Broken Dreams of Euphoria which he released for free on Psychoactive Records.

Don’t miss this live guest mix featuring exclusive new tracks…

Quexotic Adventures dates for July/Aug

6 July 2011

Just for this month (July 2011), my NSB Radio show Quexotic Adventures will be swapping places with the Yellowfinger Variety Show, ie it will be on the second and fourth Saturdays (at the usual time, 7pm BST), then revert to the first and third for August. I have a hectic gig schedule in September so there might be other changes then – follow me on Facebook or Twitter to keep up with the latest.

So the revised dates are: 9th July; 23rd July; 6th August; 20th August.

Mix: Quexotic Cover for Ben & Lex
live on NSB 5th Apr 2010

11 April 2010

Jumped on for a last-minute cover of the Beats & Bobz show for Ben & Lex. In deference to those legends of the Deep South West breaks scene, I aimed to replicate their show’s typical genre distribution (or my impression of it, anyway): roughly 65% breaks, 35% techno, and 110% megarave! There the similarities probably end… well, I just can’t do the West Country accent, moi lover 😉

(speechless!)

9 January 2010

NB: Because there’s no talking, I’ve filed this under Promo Mixes as well as Radio Archives – but unlike the other promo mixes, it won’t fit onto an audio CD.

An extra rare treat for the first show of 2010… I lost my voice on NYE, so there’s no mic/talkover, I just had to let the music speak for itself… 🙂 Also, as we were all still in the recovery zone from the New Year shenanigans, I pulled back the tempo and kept it deep, techy and rolling for the most part, gradually fattening up towards the end of course 8)

Mix: Quexotic Adventures #002:
live on NSB 5th Dec 2009

8 December 2009

Yes, my new show has a name! Thanks to everyone who sent in their suggestions, there were some great ones, couldn’t decide between them so went for something completely different 😉

This week’s show featured some proper tripped out nuskool and epic progressive breaks of the style that got me hooked on it in the first place about 9 or 10 years ago (though these tunes are more recent!), some pslinkin psexy psybreaks, and for the final half hour, something that I hope to be exploring more in future, some twisting mind-expanding leftfield neurofunk-esque drum’n’bass. Oh yes indeed. Word.
