The first official Morphinauts djset happened in January 2013 – a live performance at Forward, a monthly event in Madrid dedicated to electronic underground sound and visual experiments. More info at the Forward’s event page on Facebook.
At first I wanted to keep it more on the ambient side but, since the crowd was in the mood for a beat, I aimed towards creating a trippy, spaced out dancefloor since the kick-off of the DJset, on a crescendo escalation into a rave dimension. That’s how I like it! I enjoyed playing it a lot, and the Forward crowd enjoyed dancing to it! Now it’s time for you to enjoy it!
Please note that as I use always several channels on at the same time, sometimes there are no boundaries among tracks, and often 2, 3 and even 4 tracks merge into one single output (plus all the loops coming from other dj gear) – so, also consider the timestamp on the Mixcloud file as approximative. Nevertheless, let’s say that the general order I had in mind when loading tracks on the decks goes in the following order:
:: Entropy – Etienne Jaumet
:: Desperate Hours – Quiet Village feat. Godsy
:: Blade Runner Blues (Zev’s Rework) – Vangelis
:: Even Though (Slow Magic Remix) – Giraffage
:: Hyperlove – Audionite
:: Sci-Fidelity – Free the Robots
:: Swimmer(Morphinauts Trippy Speedup) – Four Tet
:: Playground Altona – Coma
:: At the Gate (Burningmax Remix) – Ada
:: I’m in – The Infiltrator
:: Happy Hardcore Still Works – 16 Bit Lolitas
:: Don’t Go – Justus Köhncke
:: Free Of Life – Mi Ami
:: Magnet – Oliver Huntemann
:: Echoes – Arnaud Rebotini
:: Kiwi (Tony Senghore Remix) – Para One
:: 1881 (Sinteza Remix) – Nivanoise
:: The Sound of the Big Babou – Laurent Garnier
:: Set Phazer To Stun (Burningmax Overdrive) – The Time and Space Machine
:: Helter Skelter Sian + Ingo Boss + Mark Reeve
The DJset wouldn’t have been the same without the precious, sometime decisive, sometimes even subliminal incusion of several sound loops and sound textures / soundscapes. Besides of my own banks of sounds loops that go from strong industrial beats to nature sounds, even if just for a single beat, sound or longer selection, I also loaded on my Traktor decks the following tracks:
:: Deer People – Overcast Sound
:: Blue Schwinn – Yppah
:: Approaching Skyline – Outputmessage
:: Midnight City (Man Without Country Remix) – M83
:: Dark Side of My Room – Extrawelt
:: Secondary Fauna – 1000names
:: Emphathy – Crystal Castles
:: Nature sounds: a few little birds here and there, occasional wind.
