Stephan Bodzin Boiler Room Berlin Live Set
One word: EPIC. Stephan Bodzin is an absolute synth sorcerer, weaving unexpectedly gorgeous, chill-inducing melodies from raw, analoguey growls in a way that no one else has done, bursting with powerful emotion. Every time I listen to this set I am flooded with goosebumps and left speechless. He is a musical genius and this is a very special, incredible set.
Alex Niggemann Boiler Room Berlin DJ Set
The epitome of the dark, melodic vibe, Alex Niggemann is one of those rarities whose productions are equally as brilliant as his sets. This is full of spectacularly moody picks, including his jaw-dropping techno bomb “Divergent” featuring busy percussion and cinematic flourishes of drama, and Tale of Us’s fire “North Star”, among others.

Nico Sun | Live @ Garbicz Festival 2015
EDIT: Accidentally posted the wrong set, but I’ve been rinsing it so obsessively that I absolutely had to include it here. No laptop speakers allowed, for that is a sin; a subwoofer is a must when listening to this hypnotic, ketahousey live set characterized by great tribal-ish percussion and deep, mesmerizing melodies. This set of all his own unique material is absolute perfection.
Mezcla 22 / Nico Sun / Andante
This is the one from October.
Katermukke Live Set by Canson
Lovely, lovely Canson gorgeousness, with some familiar and some newish, but sadly only 30 minutes. It’s okay, just repeat it twice.
Bedouin live @ the Mixmag Lab NYC – October 2015
Incredible, incredible Bedouin set with deep, rich melodies. “A one hour set of all brand new and existing Bedouin original productions, remixes and edits recording at the Mixmag Lab in Brooklyn on October 9th, 2015.” Definitely give this a listen before it gets pulled from Soundcloud, it’s just breathtaking.
The Anjunadeep Edition 70 with 16 Bit Lolitas
This started playing in my feed by accident and I had never heard 16 Bit Lolitas before. This set is stunning, gorgeous, and uplifting, with a lot of really pretty melodies, vocals, and sounds. I have to be brutally honest, my only complaint with this is the second to last track does not fit the vibe of the rest of the mix at all- a random dark, loopy, and overtly boring tech house track that utterly decimates the lovely mood that had been cultivated for the last hour or so. But the rest of the mix is so gorgeous that I listened to it at least a dozen or two times that I had to include it here.
Oona Dahl – Robot Heart – Burning Man 2015
Incredible set of deep, melodic, lovely jewels from Robot Heart. It was a freezing night on the playa with everyone bundled in thick furs, dancing to stay warm, and I am happy to be able to enjoy it at a more comfortable temperature. It’s a really great set I’ve rinsed quite a bit this past month.
Travel Diary (Part 1) – Javid *Liveset*
Whoa. Stumbled upon this ethnic-vibed ketahousey journey, and it’s pretty amazing. Hypnotic, with nice percussion, ethnic instruments and vocal bits. The track at 24:00 especially shines, a goosebumper for sure. Really looking forward to hearing more from this mysterious Facebook-less producer.
Hernan Cattaneo – White Ocean – Burning Man 2015 (Sunrise set)
White Ocean was epic this year, incredible lineup of great artists playing at one of the most incredibly produced stages I have ever experienced. Now throw in maestro Hernan Cattaneo for a beautiful set, and you have the recipe for an incredible and memorable playa moment. Over 100k plays on this 2.5 hr set says a lot.
Mashk Live @Parquet Recordings / La Reve ADE showcase 2015
Mashk’s debut live set in his unique melodic style, with “special versions of my tracks and one original which’ll be released soon on Parquet Recordings.” Also check out Mashk’s DeeplyMixed podcast and interview he did for us.
Nico Stojan – Robot Heart – Burning Man 2015
This is the first Robot Heart set I’ve posted that I missed in person. Who knows where I was… only the playa remembers, because I sure as hell don’t. Lovely deep vibes on this very nice set.
Luca Bacchetti at The Gärten, Beirut 19.09.2015 (part.1)
Luca Bacchetti always nails it with the track selection and keeps the dancefloor moving with interesting selections, and brilliant new productions as well. So many gems in here.

Amentia Live @ ADE Festival 2015 / CFA / Amsterdam
I’m a big fan of live sets, I think it’s great to hear a showcase of one specific artist’s works and hear lots of unheard material. Here is a liveset by Amentia at ADE, “A one hour performance by Amentia using a Nord Lead 2x, Elektron Analog Rytm, Nord Drum and Roland keyboard.”
DUBELU – OOWLS PODCAST 013
Quite a few favourite tracks in this very nice ketahousey desert vibes mix by fellow Miamian Dubelu.
#SlamRadio – 158 – Efdemin
Darkish techno set on Soma’s SlamRadio.
Smoke Machine Podcast 093 Etapp Kyle
This mix was from 2013, but I make the rules here, and occasionally break them. I want to share it anyway. >:) Deep, atmospheric, moody, slow techno-electronica, Very interesting. I love Etapp Kyle and this is a little different from what I’m used to hearing from him.
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE! 100+ mixes from October for you to poke through:
