Playing tracks by

Breakage, Nucleus & Paradox, ICR, Seba & paradox, Dom & Roland and more.

One of my first drum'n'bass dj-sets.
The idea with this one was not to merge only a few cool tracks but to tell a kind of story at the same time. This set is about a split personality, whose diabolic ego pushes itself after disappointments, refusal and mourning more and more into the foreground. An internal conflict begins, the outward initial peace is increasingly replaced by sudden outbreaks . Helplessness and melancholy transform into rage, rise up, aggression. Attempts of reflection are broken through again and again, until there is no turning back. The question arises: " What happens with me? Who am I? Which am I?! Human? Machine? ". Finally the inevitable is bound to occur: collapse, exitus.
In this way I tried to construct the set. It begins quietly, nearly comfortably. However the mood and the sounds change, become more melancholy and darker. The peace before the storm is increasingly replaced by drum and snare attacks. Gentle sounds yield to a metallic, irascible scenery.
