Happy New Year! Well, what a strange trail it has been! After a somewhat more substantial break than I have taken in the past, I am finally coming out of my covid haze and getting back to work. As the title might suggest I may also be traveling again in the near future though with the omicron variant in full swing who knows what the next few weeks …
 
Happy New Year All! For the first mix of the year I wanted to continue working through a bit of a tangent I started in December incorporating a wide range of tempos into the set. In addition to that it has been a long while since I have had an opportunity to put an all breaks mix together. So Voila! This one starts out in the 90 BPM range and build…
 
Merry Christmas folks! I ended up taking November off and didn't put out an episode and I imagine some of you were wondering if that was it for the year. Luckily I have found some time while on vacation over the holidays to put out another set. This is a bit more artistic than I have done over the past several episodes and I got a chance to really …
 
This month I had the pleasure of doing opening duties for a true legend in the industry. Mr. Nick Muir has been the man behind the curtain on all the Bedrock releases going back 20 years. He is one of the few people who can truly say he had a hand in the genesis of progressive house music. I have been following this guy's music for years and to hav…
 
So I'm hanging in Lafayette Louisianna with my good friend getting some good ol' creole culture. Tomorrow we're doing a crawfish boil which is something I haven't had for about 20 years. I put this mix together on the plane ride down and I have to say that it turned out better than I could have hoped. Great summer sounds for a hot part of the world…
 
The name of this game this month is moody, which probably is somewhat influenced by how I've been feeling lately. I have just come through a couple of months of very intensive work as well as a lot of stress. I think this month's mix reflects that. Lots of dark and subby basslines and sparsely melodic hooks. Feels good to go a bit dark for a change…
 
This mix turned out to be a bit more introspective than I anticipated. I think one of the reasons for this was the serrendipity of the whole thing. I had not left myself enough time to really think the mix through so i just winged it and I must say I'm very happy with the result. I don't think I would have selected this set of tracks to play but as…
 
I had a conversation with an old friend over the holidays and we were talking about getting back to our roots musically. From that conversation I began to pull out some tracks that I had recently bought that I felt really laid out the roots of the kind of music that I love and enjoy to this day. These are new records, but they embody the spirit of …
 
As the holiday season kicks into high gear, I am preparing for a show that is taking place on December 8th with a good friend Chad Hardcastle to celebrate his Label Vivid North's 5th anniversary. This month's podcast is the output of several days spent pouring over my music collection to find great tracks for this show specifically. I have some old…
 
For many years I spent a lot of time and effort planning out my sets for the podcast. Meticulously going over every mix to ensure they were emaculate. Well i'm getting old and I just don't have time for that $h!t anymore. :) Well actually, I've found over the past year or so that I really enjoy just setting up the decks, hitting record and seeing w…
 
Prism! I have had the great pleasure to work closely with this collective since their inception. Over the past year they have carved their way into the Calgary music scene playing a multitude of shows that have captured the spirit of what is going on here in the electronic music community. Seamlessly mixing the styles of 2 DJs can be challenging. A…
 
I put this mix together for my good friend Wes Straub's 100th radio show for which he took over Digitally Imported's progressive channel for a whopping 12 hours of music. This mix is also special as it is one hour of all original production work from your's truly. This spans a number of tracks that I have produced over the past year along with a fe…
 
Following up Part 1 from last month here is Part 2 of the Impromptu mix laid down by Magnus and myself in January. More gritty dark and moody themes with some compelling melodies to keep things from brooding too much. There will likely be more music from Magnus and myself in coming months as we seem to have hit a stride recently where some great mi…
 
It's a rare pleasure when you can put a mix down like this off the cuff. I feel that there are only a few individuals that I could engage in an effort like this and have it come off this clean. I have several hours of this mix that I will be releasing over the course of the next couple months but for now enjoy this first hour of a very impromptu mi…
 
Part one of a new mini series! Yay! Galvanize is a mini-series that I have begun to work on bringing together the elements of what people are calling deep house these days with the more technical elements of tech house. This intersection has become a cornerstone of the sound that I love to play out at the club these days. Parts 1 & 2 of this series…
 
We all have them, those friends that just don't get it. I've lived my adult life loving Techno in almost all its forms. I have also lived with the knowledge that we have historically been a counter culture to the mainstream. That was one of the reasons I got into this music to begin with. Man do I ever hate Pop music. That's not to say I don't have…
 
What a great night this was! Such a great crowd and we managed to put together what I consider a top notch opening set for Chymera. There was a great vibe in the room that night and this set just seemed to sparkle as a result. As it turns out I couldn't get the whole thing into one podcast so look for part two in the early days of July! As always, …
 
If you have been listening to this podcast for any length of time, you've certainly heard me use the words Tech House before. However, you have probably never heard me call one of my sets a Tech House set. Throughout my career making this podcast i've used many tech house tracks and blended them in with more traditional deep house or progressive. I…
 
I had been contemplating this mix for a long time waiting until I had a critical mass of the right kinds of tracks to put it together. I have loved the sound of what I consider melodic techno for a while now. Usually you will hear this kind of music at the beginning of a set by DJs like Hernan Cattaneo. Rarely do you get a full set of this very mel…
 
A note from Magnus about the mix: The meeting of two minds can be a stimulating and productive endeavor, but having a mutual love of underground house and techno is no guarantee of a successful collaboration. Rob and I have wanted to do a mix like this for some time now, and finally, after a few months of jamming and curating, we’re ready to unleas…
 
This is a special episode for me, a milestone really. 2013 marked the 10th year since my very first release was published. To commemorate the occaision I have put together the first podcast I have ever done that features a tracklist comprised entirely of tracks by yours truly. Original tracks, remixes I have done as well as a couple of choice remix…
 
Part 5 rounds out this mini series which I have been working on all year. Five parts later and I have come back to a nice cross section of deep house, minimal tech house some housey progressive stuff and a bit of just good old fashioned good vibes music. It has been a really incredible journey putting these mixes together this year and if there is …
 
Continuing to roll through more good music. I'm constantly impressed with how much of it is out there these days. Many of you out there have heard me remarking on all the good music I have been able to pick up this year and the trend doesn't seem to be ending. I have hit a milestone in my efforts to find more good music to present to you all here, …
 
Part 2 of the Realizations series is one of my personal favorites from this year. The music on this mix drew me much further down the rabbit hole and on the other side I discovered a host of new artists and labels that have been pumping out some amazing music over the past year. Much more to come from this series as I continue to investigate these …
 
The Realizations series is part exploration and part self discovery. I took about a two year break from putting podcast episodes together. For a long time I just didn't feel the draw to it anymore. I had largely stopped DJ'ing in clubs and stopped buying new music. Part of this was just because I couldn't find anything worthwhile out there and part…
 
The Cornice & Couloir Project is something that I started last year about this time and have been hoarding for a year. I wasn't really sure what I was up to until I had recorded over 2 hours of the mix and pieced together another 2 hours of ideas for a follow up. What this ended up being was a four part mini series of mellow trance tunes that makes…
 
It has been quiet the past few months in the TEXTURES camp as we have mainly been focusing on writing a new album, building a new rehearsal room and preparing for a few summer festivals with our new singer Daniel de Jongh. We shot our new podcast during our rehearsals with Daniel and the large amount of hours it took building a new rehearsal room.…
