GENREACTION – House & Breakbeat

This is a recording from our live show on LondonPirateRadio.co.uk on the 2nd May.

We start off with house and journey through some minimal, tech house and melodic techno, dipping briefly into some 90’s house classics before we move into some nu skool breaks and breakbeat.

Thanks for listening – leave a comment with your feedback and or requests 🙂

Nu Skool Breaks & Melodic Techno

This is the set from our first show in 2017 on londonpirateradio.co.uk. We start out with 2 solid hours of up-front nu stool breaks and then cross over to some techno keeping the pace but bringing in some more melodic sounds over the heavy bass lines.

As ever – thanks for listening and we’d love to hear your feedback on this mix.
Cheers, Dan & Ben

GENREACTION – Techno House & Breakbeat

Hey, we’re back and we think you’ll love what we have here for you. It’s a live show from last month on londonpirateradio.co.uk. This set starts with some lovely synth house before taking you on a journey that ebbs and flows through tech house, minimal, deep house, nu skool breaks and even a little hardcore breakbeat.

There’s lots more in the pipeline to come from us over the coming weeks, so make sure to check back or follow us on Facebook or our website.

As always, thanks for listening and leave us a comment with your thoughts feelings from this set.

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.

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.

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 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 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 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 XVII

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.

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 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.

Genreaction XIV

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 XIII

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 XII

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!
