Mix: xtalline sunshine ~
spring-loaded progressive & psytrance

21 February 2013

IMG_5728_square_med 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!

Mix: Tales Of The Interstitial episode XIII:
live on PsyMusic 17th Aug 2010
with special guest Fat Mandy / Mr Faster

20 August 2010

TOTI is one year old! To celebrate, I was delighted to welcome Jon Ward, in his Fat Mandy and Mr Faster guises, to join me in the studio for both live PA and DJ sets.

After a brief intro from yours truly, Fat Mandy kicked off the show in future-retro style with an Ableton set of electro-swing. I spun a set of progressive and psybreaks after that, then it was the mighty Fat Mandy Live PA, lush evolving breakbeat squelch, interstitially poised somewhere between breaks, dnb and chill. Then Jon switched hats to his Mr Faster persona and we went back to back for nearly three hours of psytrance, rolling, dark, forest, bouncy, you name it. Wicked fun times!

Thanks to Jon for coming along (he’ll be back!), and for all the shoutbox crew for keeping us company!

Mix: iSpyBreaks

12 October 2009

I was asked to do a guest mix by Dead Famous Records (home of Robosapiens et al) label manager Daniella Downs for the “Dead Radio” show on iBreaks Radio. The deal is I get one in return at some point, so watch out for that… Anyway, I’d intended to do about 45 mins but it came out a shade under 80 and went out on iBreaks in full last Saturday, so I now offer it here as an all too rare burn-to-CD promo mix 🙂

The name, iSpyBreaks, is a pun on iBreaks of course, and a recognition that while most of the tunes here are not exactly what most people would call psybreaks, they are varied representatives of the kind of epic, progressive breaks with tech edges and psy twists that has always been my main squeeze for the past 2 years. Some tunes are new, some are old but were so ahead of their time that they still fit. Hope you enjoy it.

Psychedelic Saturday @ The Hobbit 31st Jan 2009

19 January 2009

If you’re in the Southampton area get yourselves down to The Hobbit on Saturday 31st January where I’m playing at a night called Psychedelic Saturday. All psy-styles are represented from the 60s to now, but with an emphasis on the more modern and danceable stuff 🙂 I’ll be playing…well…the psy edge of what I normally play, ie psy-breaks, psy-trance, psy-techno, psy-wonk, psy-dnb… you get the picture… should be an awesome party 🙂 Music runs 8pm – 1am, it’s free entry before 10pm, £2 after, and the bar stays open until 3. See you there!
