Autumn Arena 2011 (as it should have sounded)

God I’ve been busy lately.

Over the Easter period I was heavily involved in the organisation of two festivals.  Was pretty happy with how both of those panned out, but not so much with my DJing.  In both cases I completely mashed a set that was well within my capabilities due to my amateur equipment.  Frustrating!  I’ve decided to step out of DJing until such a time as I have a workable setup.

I’ve also decided to re-record both of these sets & post them here, to soothe my battered ego.  😉

Here’s the first set- played at Autumn Arena 2011

Autumn Arena 2011 (as it should have sounded)

The extended version (192 kbps – 143Mb).

The short (hi-res) version (320 kbps -167Mb).

Tracklist

I hope to get the second (mangled at Samhain) up pretty soon, but am stoopidly busy with my work at the moment.  😦

Elemental

This year’s Autumn Arena was a very special wee party.  This mix went down on Saturday night as people stomped around a huge fire, rain fell, and embers flew through the air.  Nice.

Here’s an mp3 recording of the mix (145Mb @ 320 kb).

Keinzweiter (day 3)

Where to start?

Keinzweiter (Tobias Lorsbach) has been releasing albums since 2001.  He’s very well known for his intelligent, funky, glitchy micro-house and minimal techno, also releasing tunes as Elco Park (with Maximilian Wendling), Superlauncher, Antiga Prime, The Desktop Discoballs, The Postman (not to be confused with another artist with a similar name),  & T Byron.

He’s also the man behind Spontan records, one of my favorite netlabels.

Recommended albums (get some glitch in ya!)
