Prototypes 1 is a retrospective journey into classic progressive house and trance from the early years of the new millennium. DJ Basilisk is more widely known for mixing various forms of psytrance but also enjoys sharing diverse selections from many other styles of electronic dance music. Here he is also indulging in an abiding interest in shining a light on music history, sourcing sounds not commonly heard on the dance floors of 2017.
These recordings were taken at Korner, the best underground club in Taipei, which closed in 2017.
This is a series of live recordings exploring the classic sound of progressive house in a modern setting. Each mix is raw and unscripted, which introduces some looseness into the selections.
