Tarantella Frenzy

I brew a special Tarantella only set for the illustrious Club AKB, organized by the Amsterdam Klezmer band at the Mezrab, Amsterdam. They were joined on stage by the tarantellaband Vincenzo AquAria Castellana from Sicily. Tarantella is the sole traditional trance type from Europe. It deserves a special. The set starts with more poppy and electronic adaptations/remixes etc and goes into the real stuff. Levitating pizzica’s and some deep electronic adaptations as well. Enjoy!

Sfinks Levitated

As I was going to play several sets at the world famous Sfinks Mixed Festival edition of 2013, the organisation asked me to reserve a more traditional set for their illustrous Cabana. And thats what I did. I decided to spin solely traditional trance music. Music, centuries old, intended for levitation… Going out of your mind… Old and pure.

The Cabana can hold 80 dancers to the max, was was steaming hot and we had one lamp only (we pulled that one out as well as this time the place was at its best being pitchdark… And we all went mad! For 2 hrs…So the whole experiment was a great surprise to me. It was just amazing to see how a young crowd go Wild at these traditional and very wild sounds..

The tunes come from places inbetween Kinshasa and Alger, Denpasar and Damascus. Enjoy, go wild and deep like we did. And spread the vibe.

Batida hitting the Boiler Room.

I love the sound of this guy Batida, and his live band btw. He’s a Uk based portugese producer spinning all kinds of new and older (kuduro) music from Angola. Here he’s doing a DJset at the Boiler Room, uk’s leading online DJset broadcaster. He’s using a midi controller hidden in an oil can. See him warm up the reluctant crowd!

OUT NOW: StreamerPilot
– White Sugar EP

Get ready for StreamerPilot’s 3rd Installment of their remix EP’s,
featuring some surprisingly diverse remixes spicing up your Djset. The
White Sugar EP will definitely attract your attention with first
of all their 96 Bpm booty shaking ragga remix of Miami’s only Locos Por
. It drives you on, makes you wanna shake and it will not
look out
of place on a hispanic community party somewhere on the US’ East
Coast. Furtheron its noteworthy to mention the crazy second
remix, a cocktail of distorted thumpiano’s on top of slamming dubstep
licks joining Dutch brasilectro trio Zuco
. Exciting, sinister and
sensual on 88Bpm. After hearing the rattling remix of a klezmer
lamentation song played by Merlin
you will certainly know how
to finalize a good night out early in the morning, rowing your boat
into the fog on 58 BPM only..

Again StreamerPilot is bringing you original state of the art
productions, a great follow up to their Black Pepper and Red Sea EP

1. Locos Por Juana – Armando (StreamerPilot’s Bomba remix)
