This week´s episode is the first hour of my set that I played for HYTE at Amnesia on August 24th. HYTE on Ibiza has been going strong in its second season and was loads of fun so far. Yet this night was for me one of the best ones. Maybe because Radio Slave and Henrik Schwarz laid down fantastic sets before me or the crowd was just totally into it…. or .. most likely both.
It is end of August and I guess you can ask any DJs out there if they start to musically repeat themselves during this month. August is usually not the time when loads of new stuff is released and promos are send out, as everyone has no time to check and listen anyways, cause you are either on holiday and partying or working and DJing 20-30 gigs per month, or all of it together. But I have to say, although I repeat myself here and there, there is always some new stuff that makes you play everything a little differently … especially with my Playdifferently Model One Mixer. Not only that. I used the beginning of last week to change my setup from ground up, from now on using my new Antelope Orion 32+ soundcard with only one computer, having less cables but still at least the same or even more possibilities than before. Already changing that is exciting. I played my first two gigs at the wonderful @Sonus Festival in Croatia and besides some minor mistakes, hitting the wrong knobs here and there, everything was very stable and sounded great. So Amnesia on Wednesday was my third gig with it and if you have been following my sets lately you might be able to hear the difference. Ok, enough for now, enjoy and listen and I will go record shopping, as it is September now :). If one of you have some set related or technical questions, ask, I will do my best to answer all of them in the comments.
