i set you up
serious stuff boys and girls... it has been a while since i've posted some fresh sets. there are heaps i could/should post, but these will have to do:
i have a steffi for klock, or, i want to klock steffi
ben klock, steffi & sissi @ ostgut labelnacht, harry klein 17.09.2009
huge. almost 8 hours worth. and soooo good. go to the 3 hour mark and let your brain melt. klock's definitely got the touch. i remember dave saying it seems like klock and dettmann are in a friendly, ongoing battle to one-up each other. i tend to agree. you listen to this and dettmann's RA'cast is a long lost memory. there are some truly mind altering moments in this set. so marcel, your turn.
shaped to perfection
redshape livepa @ rote sonne 4.10.08
this has gone straight on repeat since i downloaded it. it took me a while to warm up to redshape, but there is no mistaking, he makes some great sounds. the last part of this performance is especially good. the final 20 minutes is old school perfection, which may bring about plenty of fist pumping. and it is one of those sets that after it finishes you have no idea what to put on next, what can capture that same feeling?
trox rocks x2
seth troxler @ fiction 9.5.08
seth troxler @ rex
this guy really has something. he just feels the music. i know this is a big call, but i think there is potential for him to become a figure like ricky v. obviously not in the same way, but comparable in terms of depth and ability as both a producer and dj. troxler is already next level and he is like 23 or 24. if he doesnt succumb to the superstar bullshit, he could be really special. i know everyone is currently losing their shit over his ibizavoice podcast, but i much prefer both of these sets. check 'em.
take this for a walk
stewart walker @ fricoti 2008
i used to love walker. he has such a distinctive, deep sound. then i kind of stopped listening to him. i am not sure why exactly. he kept on making quality music. i've tried coming back to him a couple of times, but i've had trouble reconnecting with his sound. until i put this on today and it all clicked again. this is a 2 hour livepa and what is so impressive is how coherent and well paced it is. the whole thing just fits together so well and the tempo is right on. i normally don't post a set after only listening to it once, but i have a feeling i'll have this on a fair bit in the coming days, so i wanted to make sure you guys gave it a run, or walk, too.
one for the late nights
natural / electronic.system. hypnos mix 30.12.08
further proof that there is some seriously quality coming out of italy these days. this mix is real deep. bit more slowed down, but still has a nice beat to keep things ticking over. it has done a great job of keeping me company in the office later on in the nights. not enough people make mixes like this. pitch the bpms and go under.
cio d'or @ klickklackklub 15.08.2008
cio has rightly been getting plenty of love for some of her sets we've posted here, so i figured you'd be keen for more. this one is a bit different because it is a live recording. as such, it doesn't have quite the same level of tight-ness as her other mixes, which is more than understandable. the records and sounds are the same though - dark, driving, hypnotic, reduced. and quality all the way, of course.
the others will have to wait. i have to work! enjoy...
