The outstanding show in August for me was Daan Rood. He played a set packed with various unheard of gems straight from the second hand crates of various record shops in Holland as well as ridiculously good Discogs bargains. Ambient driven, jazzy breakbeats were mixed with electro and house into a set that felt raw but playful with a sweet touch at the same time! For 2 hours Daan not only presented creative mixing but also showcased his talent for digging up great records from the past that deserve more recognition. As well as being a pleasant home listening experience this mix is a heads up to everyone striving to pick up the craft of mixing records and investing time and effort into finding tunes at affordable prices.
