In the meantime I've added the 2019 Alek Szahala set to SoundCloud, with some boosted audio:
I've been working on a set for the past few weeks that might be the most enjoyable ever. Still some way off, but it'll probably be the next live mix, as and when.
Recently found an old studio set from Cogi while looking through some CDRs. Probably recorded around 2009-2010, it's a really great set of almost-freeform and hardcore with some trademark Cogi mixing.
The tracklist's WIP but getting somewhere near.
The freeform release of the year, so far: https://exemia.bandcamp.com/album/retribution
The first recorded set of the year, some nostalgic NRG:
The Romancer set will start this evening at 20:00 JST.
In the meantime I recommend giving Jambato's Freeform Mix #4 some support. My favourite freeform set for quite some time, the highlights are as good as you'll have heard anywhere else this year.
No technical worries after all re. the next streamed set, but I'd like a little longer to prepare. Now scheduled for 5th June (Friday) at 20:00 JST instead. Practice so far has been very Romancer, hoping I can add a few more tracks in before next week.
Added to that are the security issues with TYFTH itself, which will be sorted asap. In the meantime I won't be posting on the site but will link a few things I was meaning to mention last week.
The death of a computer delayed the next stream, sorry about that - I'm trying to work out another option but can't say if things will be doable by this weekend. Planning to do some improvising over the next couple of days though, and will update here.
There should be some action on TYFTH this week when I get a chance, and another stream this weekend. Hoping to play an NRG set of the kind you'd have heard at Romancer back in the day, but there'll be plenty of older tracks that I'm using for the first time too.
This evening I had one more try at the set to tidy up some transitions, and it's now up on SC:
This was the stream tracklist:
01 Khetzal - Garden of Nyagrodha Trees
02 Mindsphere - Divine Intervention
03 Alienapia & Khetzal - Endless Glade
04 E-Mantra - Solomonar
05 Atlantis - Acid Mantra
06 Mindsphere - Visual Perception
07 Astrancer - Neighbor
08 Psy-H Project - Active Meditation
Active Meditation was unmixed, so it's been cut from the YT version.
Thanks again to everyone who caught the goa stream, it's now up on YouTube too:
Goa stream this Friday evening (JST). It'll be on the melodic side with a least a couple of very new tracks. Will update asap with the time, on twitch as usual:
It wasn't quite in time for April, but I'll be streaming a goa set in the near future. Another mostly-decided set will appear later in May, too.
There's still a slim chance of a stream before the end of the month, will have a run through this evening and see how it's looking. Bigger plans afoot for May, either way.
