For the past couple of years my interested in electronic music fell to almost zero. A couple of artists like John 00 Fleming, Max Cooper and Sasha kept it from reaching the singularity and if it wasn't for them this new series might as well wouldn't happen.
We all know electronic music have changed and evolved (perhaps even devolved) and because of that our taste in music might change as well. My first experience with electronic music was back in 1995/6 when my dad put on Oxygene by Jean Michel Jarre. Since then I've followed labels like Anjunabeats from early 2000 and Enhanced Recordings with artists like Ferry Tayle, Temple One and many others. Later on it shifted to psy- and progressive trance. My taste went deeper and darker and it wasn't anymore about the "happy" melodies and 2-minute-long breakdowns, but instead the generel build-up to the climax. I even started my own show on Afterhours.FM (Cosmological Constant), but sooner or later I felt trapped. I didn't feel free to explore various new genres or artists and I had to stop.
6 months ago something happened - I listened to some older sets of mine and for some reason it did something to me. The reason I stopped was because I felt trapped in one genre, but I didn't want to experience that anymore, so I started to expand my search for genres and labels and here, almost 7 months later I've started a new series called Singularity. In this series I don't want to follow just one genre or a handfull of artists, so you never know what the next episode will focus on. It can be breaks, psy-trance, progressive trance, techno, deep house, electronics and so on.
My first episode focuses on Deep House and I absolutely love this genre! I hope you'll enjoy this set as much as me and hopefully you'll get back later on when a new episode is finished.
