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.
Breakbeat Classics, Old School Drum & Bass and Hardcore by Orkist on Mixcloud
Hola amigos – we’ve had a great week being introduced to so many new and amazing DJ’s and tracks. Particularly enjoyed Nina Kravitz on BBC (http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b06vfz4p) if you missed it, it’s worth a listen if you love minimal and having just bought tickets to see Koma & Bones play for the frst time in many years we have to mention one of their best sets too (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hIma5Vho1gg).
This week’s set is a journey from breakbeat to minimal and back again, bringing in some tech house sounds here and there before some older breaks to round it all off.
Hope you enjoy – let us know if it works for you, Dan & Ben.
Genreaction XXI by Orkist on Mixcloud
The twentieth release in our Genreaction series of mixes – it feels good to have reached this milestone. We feel that this series is starting to mature and develop into a particular set of sounds which although ranging across multiple genres, work together to evoke memories and feelings and take you on a journey of emotions just like our favourite sets by other djs.
This set wasn’t planned in any way, we just picked a starting tune and let the mix flow from there. Loads of tracks we’ve not played before with some minimal, tech house, breaks and synth. We really had a lot of fun putting this together so hope it’s as good for you listening back as it was for us to make.
Leave a comment to let us know what you think – Ben & Dan
Genreaction XX by Orkist on Mixcloud
Hi, thanks for checking out our latest mix. This week’s set has a minimal feel starting off with breaks and then journeying through minimal techno, tech & deep house.
Hope you all enjoyed your Christmas festivities – thanks again for all your support and for taking the time to listen and comment.
Genreaction XIX by Orkist on Mixcloud
After a short break for a holiday away from the wind and rain, we’re back with a new mix.
This week was another completely unplanned mix which floated across house, deep house, electro, breaks and even a little trance. It’s a slower speed at 125bpm but the difference in music styles still provides the emotional journey which we aim for in a set.
So, how have you been? Got any new mixes you’d like to share with us? We love hearing your recommendations as much as the feedback on what you liked/disliked about this set. Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to listen – Dan & Ben
Genreaction XVIII by Orkist on Mixcloud
Greetings, salutations…and thanks for providing another week of support and encouragement. We really appreciate the community here and the dedication everyone keeps showing to produce sets which inspire and unearth new combinations of tunes which trigger such a wonderful range of feelings.
This week’s set is a journey with its heart rooted in all things minimal. We start out with pure unadulterated minimal techno and as the mix progresses gradually some tech house sounds raise the feeling before blending some rolling bass and on to our beloved breakbeat 🙂
Hope you enjoy – let us know if it hits the right spot for you, Dan & Ben.
Genreaction XVII by Orkist on Mixcloud
So it’s that time again. New week, new mix set. This week we’ve been thoroughly enjoying the latest grooves from Goingrey, seantonning and emiliano65 so if you have time go check them out, you won’t be disappointed.
This week’s set is more of a house vibe with plenty of deeper sounds brken up with a few breaks and higher tempo basslines to give some feeling and momentum to the mix.
We love hearing your feedback so leave us a comment and thanks for all your support!
Genreaction XVI by Orkist on Mixcloud
One of the big ones this week. The set starts off with a little retro wave and then journeys across breaks, electro, progressive and minimal mixing some recent releases with some classic underground sounds.
Hope you all enjoyed your Samhain weekend festivities – thanks again for all your support and for taking the time to listen and comment.
Genreaction XV by Orkist on Mixcloud
Hey everyone, thanks for stopping by. We’ve been enjoying so many of the recent mixes being posted on here, in particular Sean’s recent breaks mix was so so good (BRING THAT BREAK BACK!).
This set wasn’t planned in any way, we just picked a starting tune and let the mix flow from there. Loads of tracks we’ve not played before with plenty of broken beats and darker sounds. We really had a lot of fun putting this together so hope it’s as good for you listening back as it was for us to make.
Genreaction XIV by Orkist on Mixcloud
This set is mainly bass and beats driven but there’s maybe more of a house vibe going on this week. We start off on our 1.5 hour journey with some breaks and then flow through some tech house dropping in a little minimal and electro along the way.
We really appreciate you taking the time to check out our mixes and thanks for all the positive feedback!
Genreaction XIII by Orkist on Mixcloud
Putting together a mix that takes you on a journey is what we aim to create with the Genreaction series. Being able to blend together tunes from a range of genres feels like perfecting a recipe. Using slightly different ingredients can awaken senses and arouse memories and feelings which flow throughout your body.
This 1.5 hour adventure includes a few twists and turns but centres around strong basslines and minimal beats while providing glimpses of euphoria as we journey from valleys to peaks and back again.
We love sharing the pure joy we get from mixing with you all. Thanks for all your support and comments – enjoy the trip!
Genreaction XII by Orkist on Mixcloud
