Damabiah – Irminsul, Le Pilier Du Monde [Natura Sonaris]
Antix – Manta [Iboga Records]
Extrawelt – Too Confuzzled [Ideal Audio]
Recorded live at the All Stars festival, an event held near Fenelon Falls, Ontario, on August 28th, 2011. The setting: a hazy Sunday afternoon beneath the outflow clouds of Hurricane Irene. Style: neotrance, dream techno, and progressive trance.
Recorded at Archi-Textures, a weekly pan-genre shindig at Augusta House in Kensington Market, Toronto. This is more of a free-ranging progressive techno set than what I am usually known for but it’s fun to play around and experiment with different styles now and then!
D-Nox & Beckers – Son Of A Pitch [Systematic Recordings]
This set was recorded live at the 2009 edition of Eclipse, an annual psytrance festival held at the Bonnet Rouge campground in Ste-Thérèse-de-la-Gatineau, Québec. My time slot was 9pm to 11pm on the opening night, Friday. Since people were just arriving I opted to play a deep and driving blend of techno and progressive psytrance to warm up the crowd and get everyone excited for the three days and nights of music to come. As with any live recording there are a few imperfections but I am mostly happy with how it all came out. Given how early I was on, many of my friends from Toronto were unable to catch it, so posting this set is also my way of saying “here’s what you missed!”

Behind Blue Eyes & Krusseldorf – The World Is Our Oyster (BBE Mix) [Iboga Records]
This set was recorded at the Om Reunion Project’s winter solstice celebration, Dreamcatcher, which was held on December 19th, 2008, in Toronto, Canada. The style is a frosty blend of minimal techno, progressive house, and deep psychedelic trance influences. The scope is somewhat limited as it is a relatively short set but it should make for good listening nonetheless. Enjoy!

D-Nox & Beckers – You’re A Star (Club Version) [Stargate]
Here is a live recording of my set at Harvest Festival 2006! Naturally it isn’t as polished as my studio mixes, but it sounds good enough to send around. As I was opening the trance tent at 9:00 PM, the intent behind this performance was to get the night started right, beginning with an old favourite from 1992. From there I dig into progressive trance and tribal house territory, keeping it all fairly low-key. The final half hour picks up the pace, taking the crowd on an electro-influenced rollercoaster ride designed to get everyone pumped and psyched for a full night of dancing and celebration. Enjoy!
