As an  early Christmas present, we would like to present to you guys two brand new exclusive mixtapes made by two friends of Phase02!

The first one was made by Berlin based Daniel Gorton a.k.a. Hog, who already passed here in november with his first EP called “Not quite an albatross” (check it again here). It’s a superb mix, partly because of the excellent track choice but also because of the way it was mixed together! This is how he describes the mix himself: “It’s quite eclectic and journeys through various styles of techno and house with a touch of electronica.” Hit the “read more” button below to see the playlist…

Then we got Thomas Neyens a.k.a. Kiani & his Legion. He was also featured here a while ago (right here) and now he delivers yet again a steamy 4 hour set which brings us a flood of deep house and techno! Here’s how he describes the result: “The mix includes old and new tracks, I didn’t really prepare it beforehand or edit it afterwards, I mixed it on low volume, so cut me some slack, don’t expect an ultrapolished ableton ‘whoop whoop’ sonic orgasm. It’s just simple house, reminiscent of the true culture of the night, when the DJ was still human…” From driving tech-housers and exotic grooves, to jackin’ stuff, but still with that deliciously deep, clubby vibe. If you would like to know a track ID, do leave a comment.

I highly recommend you both of these tapes, you simply gotta love them! Oh yes and before I forget, Merry Christmas to you all! Read more

in the mix 003: Thomas Dockx

It’s time for a new exclusive mix. This time from a local techno hero Thomas Dockx. He’s quite a young talent from around Antwerp deejaying his way to the top. Currently he’s very busy organizing his dance event project “Kazzino”. So I was lucky to get him to do an exclusive phase02 mix and make some time for a quick interview.

phase02: Hi Thomas! How are you doing? Tell a little more about yourself and how you started as a dj/producer?

Thomas: Hi Tim, I’m fine, just a little bit tired after a long weekend.. I am now seventeen years old and I’m playing music for almost six years. It all started very small at my room. I played a lot of different styles and there was no structure in my sets. A few months later I discovered the online music store Beatport. Thanks to beatport, I learned a lot of new dance music. My love for techno and minimal was born.

phase02: You’ve played at some quite amazing party events and clubnights. You’ve finished your 4th track. Ever considered to join a label?

Thomas: Maybe in the future .. Today I still prefer deejaying. The songs that I’ve made now are not finished yet. I have to add and modify details.

phase02: I’d describe your music choice and production as a subtle and simplistic part of the tech-house and techno genre? How would you describe your music?

Thomas: Yes indeed, I play deep house to techno, depending on my mood and the place where I’m playing. The search for new good music takes a lot of my time.

phase02: You’re also spinning with your friend Nicolas under the alias Flat Fish. How’s that project going? Do you prefer playing alone or with two? Is your track choice any different?

Thomas: The project is going well. Nicolas is one of my best friends, we’ve already been through a lot together. It’s fun playing together and have someone to fall back on. But I also enjoy playing alone. Usually I play slower and deeper.

phase02: Nice to hear that! How do you see yourself (or flat fish) as dj/producer in a couple years? Do you have any big plans?

Thomas: No big plans.. We are organizing parties in and around Antwerp. In a few weeks our concept Kazzino will take place in Cafe D’Anvers.

phase02: What’s your opinion on the today’s electronic music scene in general? Do you like the way the mainstream evolves?

Thomas: I don’t really know what to think about the music these days. Many people of my age listen to dubstep and electro. I don’t know why, but that music has never touched me.

Okay Thomas! Thanks a lot for this interview and most importantly the amazing dj set you’ve recorded for us.

Now enjoy Thomas Dockx’ exclusive phase02 mix presenting some of the best techno, minimal, tech and deep house in the scene. These 55minutes  is a must-have recording for everyone who appreciate some warm, deep and relaxing beats. Not to mention Thomas’ smooth mix style that finishing of this lovely mix.

I know! I don’t want to ruin our exclusive mix collection with putting my own mix in it. But I’m doing it anyway. Hopefully not ruining it though. Anyway I’m leaving for Spain for 10 days next Monday. Before I leave you guys with Tony and … who knows maybe a new writer, I just want to share my own phase02 mix. I’m not a super skilled mixer, but I hope my track selection can compensate that part. Just give it a shot. Who knows… you might discover some new names in there.

I added the download or purchase link with every track in case you really like it.

in the mix 001: darling farah.

We’ve got a special treat for our readers today. I’m happy to announce the re-launch of the ‘In the Mix’ series on phase02. These are exclusive mixes done for us by artists we’ve been closely corresponding with and have developed relationships with over time. The focus for this on-going series will be to give said artist’s an opportunity to share new materials, unreleased tracks, as well as their own selection of music mixed for our readers. This is a new project for us and some things may change in the future, but we would like to invite you along for the ride.

For our first installment we’ve curated a brilliant young star known as Darling Farah. His story is really interesting, being that he was born and raised in Detroit, later moved to the Arab Emirates, and currently resides in Abu Dhabi, where he has little to no exposure with techno. I asked him what he plan’s to do when he turns 18 to which he replied – “I’ve been trying to think of some of the things i can finally do in this country now that I’m gonn be 18 soon, but i’ts still not much.”

I think this boy is fascinating, and his story is really inspiring to anyone who’s felt like an outsider. The creative artist in my eyes are usually those peoples in situations where improvisation is the means for innovative thinking. The process in itself is all that matters, and to reach the end result the quickest, and easiest way, isn’t always the best. You know how that saying goes, “less is more” – Well I firmly believe in those values, and people like Kamau prove it to be true.

Phase02 In The Mix 001 – Darling Farah


01. Darling Farah – Excuse Girl (Unreleased)
02. M.A.N.D.Y vs Booka Shade – Donut
03. Edu K – Jumpin n Pumpin (Femme en Fourrure Remix)

12. Loko – Ass Play

Darling is currently working on an EP simply titled ‘Hell’ and he’s given us a couple promo tracks for the blog. No confirmation on when or who will be releasing this EP, but to my understanding he’s still making the necessary considerations for an appropriate platform. Good things come to those who wait, so hold tight this will be well worth it.
