Following on from my time in Berlin, came a number of conferences in Amsterdam. Between a number of excellent conferences, time in a theme park and lots of time on the Amsterdam metro system I caught Covid for the second time. Although not so bad as the first time, I isolated in a hotel room to avoid infecting others. I was very aware there was no need to self-isolate, I couldn't bring myself to infect a number of people. Hence this mix a late entry into the locked down mixing out era of my mixes.

In between working, sleeping and watching a lot of media, I was able to craft and record this mix then redo it on the aggressive hour plane back to Manchester. 

Recorded live and it leans on the Berlin Donnerwetter mix with another swift 136ish BPM plus a real interesting bag of old and new tunes. Originally longer but the hour flight set a better time of under a hour.

Digital Italic

Dj from Manchester UK playing Trance and Tech Trance using nothing more that a Pacemaker Device. He adores the Pacemaker device and does all his mixes with it while on his travels. The mixes take inspiration from the things around him and the mix style is different from what you usually hear. More in your face and more frantic that most mixes, it leads you on a journey somewhere else. He use to dj under the name of Adrenalin Rush in and around the South west of England and Wales on Vinyl believe it or not but gave it up when he moved to London. Djing on laptops was the name of the game then and he gained a regular spot on a Miami based internet radio station before it got shut down in 2005. Now in Manchester and available for small and large trance parties across the North and South, he hopes to push mixing to places where it was never possible using the Pacemaker device
