I bet you didn’t know this but I’ve played digital sets and nothing sounds as good as a record coming through a sound system. Nothing! Music is a feeling and when you play vinyl, you’re relying on your senses far more intuitively to capture the audience in your narrative. When you’re not interfacing with an LCD display, you become literate in this specific music and that knowledge stays with you. This is a much more human experience. Just the physical nature of putting on a record requires you to move your body. I might break my back to put a show together for you, but I hope it was as pleasing for the 2000+ viewers tuning in this past Tuesday as it was for me mixing for you.
Records signify what’s in someone’s collection, therefore largely validating someone’s taste and identity. I know many of you think of faster, harder techno when you hear the DJ name Rouchos, but there’s more to my DJ Sets than simply that. Music wise, we kept it mostly techno, while breaking out some new tunes I am quite positive you may be hearing soon: Roman Lindau, Turbo Turbo, DJ Seinfeld, Paul Mac just to name a few. Special Thanks goes out to CTRLROOM’s new sponsor Junction Brewery.
If you got a few minutes I encourage you to follow them on their main channels. I have posted links to them below.
Enjoy the mix!
Be a Guest on the Show
If you play underground music, I want to hear from you. Send me a message including a link to your mixcloud or soundcloud and thoughts about your music convictions and if things work out I would be privileged to have you on the show in the future. Consider this: it’s all about the heart and soul so what I want to hear is a mix that you really feel and like, not just something to get more fans or gigs. It’s not about you – its about the music.
