ORKIST Live – A Journey of Frequency III

In preparation for our show tonight on LondonPirateRadio.co.uk (from 8m UK time), here’s the recording of last week’s set. It’s a non-stop bouncing set incorporating some older classic techno tracks, broken beats and rolling basslines.

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.

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

ORKIST live on LondonPirateRadio.co.uk

Last week’s set on www.londonpirateradio.co.uk – starting out with some full on breaks, then dipping into some progressive and tech house before more breakbeat throught to the end of the mix.

It was our first show on LPR – we really enjoyed and you can catch us live every week from 10pm-12am Tuesday evenings (UK time).

Thanks for listening and as always, we’d love to hear what you think of the set – cheers, Dan & Ben

Genreaction XXV

We’ve had a fantastic week speaking to producers and dj’s about their recent releases – there’s so much great music to discover and of course share with you all. Also there’s a possibility of a future radio slot which we’re really trying to organise into somewhere in our busy schedules, if you’d like to be kept up to date with notification of any new releases or shows, jump over to our website and sign up for our email newsletter: http://orkist.uk

This week’s set takes in a wide range of genres from deep and progressive house to electro and breaks. It’s upbeat and full of positive energy to keep you motivated so we want to hear where you’re listening, how you like the mix and also what you are doing while listening – it’s always interesting to learn a little more about all of you lovely listeners.

As always, thanks for stopping by and taking the time to listen, have a good week! 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

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

Genreaction XXI

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 XX

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 XVIII

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 XV

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.
