4/4 special! prog/tech/psytrance
live on NSB 23rd Aug 2014

4 December 2014

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…

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!

Forthcoming Gig: Psysphere @ Union, Vauxhall
23rd Feb 2013

7 February 2013

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.

Union, 66 Albert Embankment, Vauxhall, London.

Re:Creation and
Unconscious Mind(s)

11 November 2011

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!

Unconscious Mind(s) – Broken Dreams of Euphoria [PSY007] Free Download by Psychoactive Records

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!

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!

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!) 🙂
