DJ Basilisk - Prototypes 3

dj-basilisk-prototypes-3

Prototypes 3 continues DJ Basilisk’s retrospective exploration of classic progressive house and trance from the early years of the new millennium. Originally recorded live in a club in October 2019, this raw and unscripted set features an enticing blend of well-known hits and hidden gems. Although the focus of this series is documenting the legacy of progressive house, plenty of other styles find their way into this recording, particularly in the opening sequence, which rapidly flashes through tribal beats, fidget house, and neotrance before settling into more progressive territory.

Notes

  • Recorded live at a small venue in Taipei in October 2019. Shared online for the first time in July 2021.
  • I wasn’t planning on playing a classics set so almost no prep went into this set, which may explain why the programming meanders back and forth.
  • I snuck in a few tunes that I just wanted to hear on a big system; Poor Leno is an old favorite of mine and I’ve never heard it that loud before!
  • RIP PQM.
  • Mixed with Traktor 3 and a Korg Nanokontrol 1.
  • Mastered in Ableton Live using TDR Nova and LoudMax.

Prototypes

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.
