George Solar - Comfy Dub Mix #13, IbizaSonic Radio

Sometimes its good to kick back and enjoy this beautiful life and all the sounds and energy that swirl around us. I like to do so with some COMFY DUB - a chilled theme that George Solar has been offering through his original tracks, DJ sets and radio show for several years now. Though, I hadn't heard a Comfy Dub mix from George for a bit, so when he posted his latest COMFY DUB radio mix I instantly listened...and haven't stopped. It's so chill, perfect for mornings or anytime when you need a bit of atmospheric dub to lighten and tap the brakes a bit, sometimes we need to slow down and appreciate the joy and energy that is inherent in BEING. Now, I'm gonna go dub out with some COMFY DUB...

Monday Mix: DJ EROK - NattSpil Tripnotic Live Set

Here's my latest mix - a live set I performed at Natt Spil Lounge in Madison, WI a few weeks ago. I love DJing at Natt Spil - it's a true DJ's venue, where DJs experiment with new songs, techniques and combinations 7 nights a week. Its a great venue for me, as I can mix a range of downtempo and uptempo styles over the course of 4 hours. This live set starts with some atmospheric downtempo dub, a quick transition into chilled out trip hop, then into a mix of international fusion and electronic genres of varied tempo, and the last 45 minutes is the cool down, very chilled.

I like to plan the first 30-45 minutes of a set because it gets me into a rhythm, and I can test what is working with the audience. I am very happy with how this set turned out, but I don't quite get into my flow until 20 minutes in. So be patient with this set - it is nearly 4 hours and you will be rewarded with the entire journey. The set list is below - enjoy!
