Something a bit different… an entire show dedicated to 4-to-the-floor music, no breakbeats at all! Certainly the first time I’ve done this on NSB, but it went down rather well 🙂 Starting in the mid-130s with chunky techy and progressive stuff, and building up to full-on psytrance by the end. Judging by the reaction I ought to do this more often… Download (218.2MB 192kbps MP3 158’54”)397 downloads
Bouncy progressive trance and psytrance to put a spring in your step and sunshine in your soul… Gradually evolving from 135 to 145 bpm, taking you from morning to evening in one CD-length mix 🙂
Sorry it’s been so long since my last promo mix. I actually did this one almost exactly a year ago, but for various reasons (not very good ones) it’s been languishing on my hard disk since then. But as the sun re-emerges from its winter hibernation, it’s time to let it loose. I find it’s particularly good for driving on a sunny day, but I’m sure you’ll find other uses for it… enjoy!
I’m delighted to be making a return visit to Psysphere – the last one was a stellar night with great music, mind-blowing decor and a super-friendly crowd.
This time the main room plays host to a variety of psytrance, including the London debut of awesome Goa-Psy producer Lunar Seed, along with LIVE sets from Prognosis, Continuum, and Sprocket, and DJ support from Razzek, Zarvox, Fordy and Thall Om.
Meanwhile Room 2 provides the alternative psychedelic grooves, from psybreaks to progressive to glitch-hop, with Quextal, Spindrift, Andrew Rushton, Miff, Amethyst and Azuhax23.
With visuals from VJ Kaz, decor from Jumbo Arts and In Orbit, plus Mess Tent’s Chai Café and more.
The night runs from 10pm to 8am and it’s only £10 on the door – get down early as capacity is limited.
Those lovely chaps over at Psychoactive Records have been busy bees lately. As well as furnishing us with some mighty fine psytrance and psybreaks EPs recently, label head honchos Re:Creation and Unconscious Mind(s) have both now released full-length LPs on the label for free on Soundcloud!
The Unconscious Mind(s) album Broken Dreams Of Euphoria [PSY007] is a 10-track tour-de-force of psychedelic breaks and tech-funk. It’s full of great grooves, chunky rolling basslines, powerful acid lines, and squelches galore!
Hot off the presses today, 11/11/11, at precisely 11:11:11, the long-awaited debut album from Re:Creation was released to an unsuspecting world. Entitled Infinite Expansion, it offers up a smorgasbord of psychedelic sensory delights, from the convention-defying 5/4-signature 100bpm psystep of the opening track, to rolling and melodic soundscapes of full-on psytrance, to blistering high-octane psybreaks and more, this is a truly epic journey of the imagination!
It’s been a while but TOTI returns with a bang, joined in the studio by the dudes that are Unconscious Mind(s) and Re:Creation for an epic 4-hour b2b2b session of mind-bending psybreaks and psytrance, including many exclusive tracks forthcoming on their label Psychoactive Records. Huge thanks to them for coming along, and to everyone who tuned in live and got busy in the chatroom.
TOTI is a moveable feast at the moment, ie I don’t yet know when the next one will be, but more fabulous guests are in the pipeline… follow Quextal on Facebook or Twitter to be notified about the next show!

Another chapter of Tales… this week featuring chunky rolling techno, blissed progressive, epic psybreaks and twisted psytrance in a slightly more compact show than has become typical for Tales, only slightly over 2 hours 🙂 Download (186.5MB 192kbps MP3 135’48”)537 downloads
Hey all. Sorry this has taken a while to upload – I had the small matter of moving house to attend to! Anyway, I hope you enjoy this epic show. It’s almost entirely 4/4s, from progressive gradually accelerating to banging psytrance with just a couple of psybreaks tracks to keep you on your toes – including the exclusive forthcoming psybreaks monster from Re:Creation (big ups Adam!) 🙂
Keep an eye on my Twitter or Facebook page for news of the next episode of Tales Of The Interstitial…
Watch out Northerners… Quextal is playing the main room at the Beaver Works in Leeds on Fri 4th Feb 2011 as new label Psychoactive Records showcase their killer sounds with LIVE PAs from Re:Creation (A/V set), Unconscious Mind(s) and more, across two rooms of sheer psybreaks, psytrance, techno and electro awesomeness, plus the Killertrax boys and girls doing their hard dance thing in the basement.
Chunky progressive, psybreaks, dnb, and plenty of psytrance in this month’s trippy hop round the genres. Going out to everyone who caught my set at Waveform on the Kaplick Solar Stage… see you again next year! Download (250.2MB 192kbps MP3 182’11”)772 downloads
