Aksat Josh, Indian, is an 89’s, composer and DJ. Started his official career in the 2013, he is already one of Media Records new talents, joining Underground Records. Waving between house and techno he has his own sound and style easily recognisable due to his Indian culture inferring the production. “Mirage” is hypnotic rhythm and harmonious synths that mix reality with trance.

About Underground (Media Records)
Created in 1989, the ‘Underground’ label reached the top of the charts with artists such as Anticappella. They were also responsible for licensing globally successful acts like 2 Unlimited for the Italian territory. In 1996 the label was rebranded, with the musical sound changing from ‘progressive trance’ to ‘techno’, thus becoming more of a ’sister’ label to BXR. Underground became an imprint for experimental music, emerging producers and well known artists releasing under different aliases, in order to test out fresh new sounds and styles. Underground will now relaunch in 2017 in association with Media Records.

Mat Zo announces genre-specific “Self Disassemble Tour” + 2011 Club Mix of “Hurricane”

A constant force of innovation in the dance music scene, Mat Zo has announced that throughout 2017, he will embark on what he’s referring to as the “Self Disassemble Tour.” Last year, Mat released an album titled “Self Assemble,” which was an assemblage of the various influences he has had since childhood. His DJ sets last year likewise drew from many styles of music. In contrast, this year will be the opposite: It’s about breaking out the individual genres of music he loves, and playing special sets to honor several of those in a purest fashion. Over the course of 2017 he’ll be playing DnB, house, and Classic Anjuna progressive/trance sets in various cities.

For the first round of announced dates, Mat will be playing “Anjunabeats classics sets” at four stops of the Anjunabeats North American Tour. These special performances will be in Brooklyn, Washington DC, San Jose and Ottawa, bringing fans nostalgic performances brimming with older tracks from Above and Beyond’s iconic trance label. The next batch of dates are still to be announced, which will be billed according to genre and scattered around the rest of the year.

To get people warmed up for the Anjunabeats classics set, today Mat unveiled a previously unreleased trance version of “Hurricane ft. Eyes That Lie.” Mat explains:

“This is actually the original version of Hurricane. I didn’t put it on the album because it was at a time where I wanted to move away from trance, so I remade it into the version that’s on Damage Control. I played it once on a live broadcast and ever since people have been asking for it. Luckily I found a copy on my old HD. It’s terribly mixed and partly unfinished, but I figured since people still ask about it to this day, why not just give it away.”

Quincy Weigert – Opiates In The Opera / La Casa Blanca

Quincy Weigert continues his story with us, this time on Create Strobe and it seems we can always rely on him to deliver melodies that truly resonate with your soul! This two-tracker starts with the pensive ‘Opiates In The Opera’ which features Quincy’s signature melodic scale, initially on Guitar. The beats drop out leaving a synth break full of atmosphere for a relatively short time and then track bursts back in again with excitement after a siren calls time on the breakdown. ‘La Casa Blanca’ is similarly dark but not as urgent. Nonetheless, there’s a message in there you need to hear. An EP for those who like their trance both dark and driving!
