Dj Xol - Promomix 04/2011

Xol - promomix april 2011

I started dj'ing acid techno and 'industrial' hardcore back in '95 while living in Rotterdam (Netherlands), heavily influenced by the massive free party scene of that very special time and place. I got into dnb a couple of years later and for a while I played both 4/4 and drum&bass, until I grew bored of techno and gave it up to fully concentrate on jungle music. In the year 2000 I moved to Madrid (Spain), where the dnb scene was still at an embryonic stage; this allowed me to start playing out a lot and play a very active part in its development through dj'ing and promoting nights. 10 years down the line, I've become a 'household name' here, regularly playing out at clubs and festivals all over Spain (not to mention the odd gig abroad, so far in another 10 European countries!). I jumped on the Jungletrain wagon in 2009, which is for me a great opportunity to showcase my most 'serious' side (indeed, playing in Spanish clubs involves a much more 'mainstream' and dancefloor-orientated approach to drum&bass which doesn't fully do me justice as a dj).

The promomix I've put together truly represents what the 'Jungletrain sound' means to me: a dark and moody vibe with a slight old school flavour, keeping it bass-heavy all the way! As any regular listener of my show will tell, I'm a very diverse dj able to play solid sets across the full spectrum; the common denominator though is that I always focus on the logical progression of my sets and instead of cramming a bunch of dubplates and the latest releases with easy mixes, I like digging into the crates to tell an elaborate story, using the most appropriate tunes and creative mixing to embark the dedicated listener onto a sonic journey. I hope you will enjoy it... All aboard!
