Sum up this podcast in 10 words…
A mix of carefully curated techno bangers from well-known and upcoming producers.
What’s your personal favourite track on it?
Hard question, I like my track Ceremony which was released in 2020 by IAMT. Have played it in each one of my sets since then and it’s a crowd favorite. Also my tune Catharsis which will be released next month on Volta. From another artist, I”d have to say Abrakadabra by Cesar Almena and Mainterm.
What’s the special ingredient in this mix?
Haha, not sure about that. Just trying to mix tracks the way I like it. Finding tunes that mix well with each other while trying to keep an idea or message behind the mix.
Tell us about your next EP?
It’s two track ep coming out late October in Victor Ruiz’s Volta Records. Composed of two peak time techno tracks. I feel one is perfect for mid set action and the other for anywhere in a set, but I’ve been using it to close for a while and it kills it every time
What have you got coming up?
Excited about playing in the next Tribal Gathering fest in Panama mid-October, a week long festival which gathers Native Tribes from the Americas with a strong selection of electronic music artists with multiple stages. Really looking for that experience. I think the last one done was featured in the documentary the Last Festival on Earth, when it was interrupted by the 2020 Pandemic.
And finally, do you have a special message for our readers?
I want to thank everyone for taking the time to listen to my podcast. I hope you enjoy it and that we meet soon on the dancefloor.
