ORKIST Live – A Journey of Frequency II

Hey there, it’s the next installment of our Journey of Frequency series recorded live on LondonPirateRadio.co.uk last week.

This mix starts off with some drum and bass before building into some breakbeat, tech house and progressive house.

We’re really enjoying producing these longer 4 hour sets. The additional length allows much more time to cross over between genres and see where the flow of the music takes us – we’d love to hear what you think too…

Cheers for stopping by and listening, Dan & Ben.

ORKIST Live – A Journey of Frequency

Our latest set on LondonPirateRadio.co.uk from the 26th April. We start out with some progressive and minimal house, then bring in some broken beats and bass music before finishing off with some old skool breakbeat.

Let us know what you think in the comments and as usual, thank you for listening and supporting us.

ORKIST Live – Techno, House & Breakbeat

Old Skool Drum & Bass, Breaks & Progressive House

Here’s our latest set from LondonPirateRadio.co.uk. We start out with some drum & bass classics, then bring in some breaks before heading off into progressive house and some electro.

Not had much time to keep up with sets from everyone else this week, so no recommendations for now. Lots of listening to do…

As ever, let us know what you think – cheers, Dan & Ben

Old Skool Techno & Breakbeat

Thanks for making your way over to our latest mix session, if you take the time to listen through the set please leave us a comment with what you thought.

This is a recording of our last show on LondonPirateRadio.co.uk which was only two hours – we’ll be back to four hour shows from next week.

The set starts with some old skool house/techno from the early 90s before some lumpy basslines and breakbeat and finishing off with some old UK hardcore.

This week we’ve loved the sounds from Jay (Renascence 001), Peter (Roundtrip: Amsterdam), Ivan (ϖ THE ARSONIST ϖ) and Sista-Matic (Sista-Matic – Old Skool Hardcore Show (92/93) – London Pirate Radio 2/4/2016). If you have a chance take a listen and leave a comment on their shows.

Limitless – Beats from the Underground

Arhh me hearties – here’s last week’s live set on LondonPirateRadio.co.uk which started out with some old skool techno trance before bouncing through some broken beats and off into tech house with some progressive sounds sneaking in here and there.

We really enjoyed putting together this mix as it encompases a lot of different genres and feels like a real rollercoaster of energy & mood throughout the 4 hour journey.

Recommended sets for you to listen to this week come from Marc (Smi043 – Artcore (Drum n Bass) Mix), Paul (The Light Reflected Mix 2016), Sean (DEEPDOM – Soul Sessions #11) and The Snooze on NSB Radio ([099] WallPlugTuna on NSB Radio)

Old Skool Hardcore Breakbeat – londonpirateradio.co.uk

Last week we covered another slot for londonpirateradio.co.uk on Friday evening which felt like the perfect time to dip into our old UK Hardcore and Breakbeat tunes.

This set sets a good pace from the start with plenty of classic tunes and a few jungle and remixes thrown in too.

It’s the first purely old skool mix we’ve released here so we’d love to hear whether you enjoyed it and any tunes which stand out for you. Cheers, Dan & Ben

Genreaction XXIV

Hey party people, thanks for stopping by to hear our latest set. This week the mix just happened without effort or disruption and as most of you know, there’s nothing like that feeling when you’re creating sounds and the life force is flowing through you – you feel on top of the world – or in layman’s terms ‘buzzin man’

This week’s mix starts with a little breaks, then journeys through progressive house, into minimal and back out to finish with a little more broken beats.

We’ve been loving the recent sets from https://www.mixcloud.com/TheSnooze/ and https://www.mixcloud.com/JayWoodward/ so if you get a chance, have a listen to these guys – great stuff!

Let us know your thoughts on this week’s set and any others you’ve liked recently so we can go and check them out too. Have a good week – Dan & Ben

BreakFeast – Nu Skool Breaks & Breakbeat

It’s the weekend and as promised here’s a little breaks mix to start your day off in the right mood. In our opinion you can’t beat a very good breakbeat track, you can include so many elements from different genres in breakbeat while still sounding completely unique and fresh.

Let us know whether this set hits the spot for you and whether you’d like us to post some more solely breakbeat mixes. We know there are a lot of new mixes which you’ve contacted us about and we have them scheduled to listen to, so will be commenting over the coming days. As ever, thanks for your support and positive energy – Dan & Ben

P.S. Let us know of any sets you’ve really enjoyed this week in the comments..

Genreaction XXIII

Welcome friends! After one of the best nights of music I can remember at Lowdown in Manchester (thanks Steve Thorpe) this weeks set is minimal and minor. We step out to some tech house and bring in a few melodic techno sounds but the vibe is definitely a little darker and harder than some of our recent mixes.

We’ve got a Lowdown inspired breaks set to come later this week, so keep your eyes open for that, but for now, thanks for checking us out, we hope you enjoy the set and please leave us a comment with your thoughts. Dan & Ben

Genreaction XXII

Back again, this time with the weekly Genreaction set. Thanks for stopping by, we hope to give your brain and ears something tasty to digest today 🙂

The set starts upbeat before delving into some darker minimal sounds and then coming out the other end with some progressive and deep house, and we struggle not to include some broken beats, so there’s a little older breakbeat creeping in at the end.

This week we really enjoyed the mixes by Beto (Beto Barreiro), David (Dalorex) and Peter (Peter Provics) – all really great sets to listen to.

As ever, thank you for listening and sharing your thoughts and recommendations. Dan & Ben.

Deep House Trip

Thanks for your continued support – a great community we have here, filled with some stunning talent! Oi Oi!

A bit more chilled, this set. A blend of Deep and Progressive House and some vocal tracks, tied together with nice prominent melodic basslines, to take you on a journey up, down, and up again.

At 120BPM it’s certainly the most down-tempo mix we’ve released, so we would love to hear your feedback – and if you want to hear more like it.

But don’t stress! We are continuing regardless with the Genreaction series, the sounds that you know us for – Tech, Progressive, Minimal and Breaks. Let us know if this more relaxed vibe pushes your buttons, and we may do some more in the future.

Peace and Love to you all

Ben and Dan

Breakbeat Classics, Old School Drum & Bass and Hardcore

Time for a bit of fun. This is a classic drum and bass/jungle and old school hardcore set. These are genres from our early 20’s when the rave scene was in full flow here in the UK. Parties were free and the atmosphere and music were the most important elements of the night.

The DJ’s travelled across the country throughout the night to play up to 5 venues in a single night and any promising DJ’s, sometimes as young as 14 or 15 were welcomed into the scene to play sets in front of hundreds of happy music lovers.

Let us know what you think in the comments – and thanks for listening! Dan & Ben.
