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.
After years of relentless experimentation Ben Rama makes his formal debut with The Invisible Kingdom, a 4-track EP released on Drumlore, a Canadian techno netlabel. Originally from the East Coast, Ben Rama recently moved to the electronic music mecca of Montreal to further dedicate himself to his craft. Drawing upon the finest elements of techno, minimal, and progressive, this release is a precision-crafted gem loaded with heavy grooves, intricate rhythms, and nuanced melodies.
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!”
