Get Spotify Playlist:


01. Roberto Clementi – Hardclass

Nice melodic Techno track from Roberto. Only for very serious underground dancefloors.

02. Jay Lumen – Horizon

I was happy to return for the 20 year anniversary special compilation of Adam Beyer’s Drumcode.
Basically I made this track just for myself to play, however as Adam loved the melodies and the general sound of it I’ve given to him exclusively for the compilation, of course.

03. Flug – Insects (Chord Mix)

A very big banger including a nice contrast in the break. I love to burn up the Techno dancefloors by this track from Flug.

04. Kerry Chandler – Turn Off The Lights (Satoshi Tomiie Remix)

This is a very simple and dry Tech House tune but it has a Techno taste  to it as well. I love to play in a special acapella version that I’ve put together.

05. Sidney Charles – Botafoch

Nice Techno track on Tech House basics. I love playing it when I’m leading my sets from Tech-House to Techno – fat groove and a massive dark aesthetic.

06. Jay Lumen – Old Machines

This is the first single track on my upcoming “Lost Tales” album. Chordy Techno stuff for main floors.

07. Franky Rizardo – Power Flanger

No more words needed. It’s a power flanger track. Nice tech house taste.

08: Joey Beltram – Energy Flash

One of my favourite real old school Techno tracks. The tune is 26 years old but I still love it.

09. Keith Carnal – Immer

Nowdays I play this track a lot. It’s a very nice choice for the darker period in my DJ sets at real warehouse parties.

10. Recondite – Nock

This one’s a very nice 80s new wave inspired track that takes you on a journey. It’s very melodic and a great choice to start or close a DJ set or simply just listening to when you are travelling.

11. Ingrid Lukas – We Are (Manuel Tur Remix 3)

This track is simply a feeling. It’s definitely not for my DJ sets unless I drop it at the very end but I just love the sound.
It’s a song not simply a track. I like it.
