New Year’s Day, 2016: I was celebrating the new year with my Floasis crew of downtempo musicians and DJs, as we had been invited to program 2 blocks of music in the mornings of a 4-day campout festival called Tropical Oasis. On the first morning of 2016, I opened for none other than Bluetech, one of my favorite artists and also a dear friend. I’d crafted this set to have a dubby psychill flow in order to warm people up for Bluetech’s amazing music – in more ways than one. Temperatures were below freezing in the dawn hours so it was only barely above freezing when I started playing. Thankfully I did have a dancefloor and kept people moving through the slow grooves as much as possible.
The cold weather played havoc with Bluetech’s equipment so I ended up playing longer than expected while things were sorted out, so there are some gaps toward the end of the mix when I kept thinking he was ready to play.
