I just had an absolutely smashing weekend with two gigs: Galway, Ireland and Antwerp, Belgium. Both gigs were so dope that I was so full of musical energy when I got back home that once I had got some well-deserved sleep, I woke up and felt that today would be perfect for recording a new episode.
The main theme for this one is music by great, talented guys you probably haven’t heard that much of. Being a DJ, I’m in a privileged position, since I constantly get sent music by both established artists and labels as well as those who haven’t released much music or/and who are spending their first years with music production.

I’m eager to continue the series, so here we go! (also don’t miss the little merch giveaway this time, which is at the bottom of the post)
As I said, the main focus will be on drum and bass as that is my main love, but there will be other stuff coming, and the next episode or two will be about downtempo and hiphop.
