DJ Basilisk – Live at Re:Generate 2011

dj-basilisk-live-at-re-generate-2011

This set was recorded live at Re:Generate, the name chosen by the Om Reunion Project to set the mood for their summer solstice gathering in 2011. I was scheduled to play on Sunday morning at the Moon Bass stage, a great little setup in a forest clearing on a beautiful piece of land in Southern Ontario. It felt like the right space and time to take a trip into the history of the psychedelic trance subculture so I mixed up a diverse assortment of old school Goa trance classics after sunrise. As always, this set was completely improvised; absolutely nothing was planned prior to stepping on stage to ready my equipment. This musical experience was co-created with a fantastic crowd of people who emerged from the woods to dance with enthusiasm to these old school gems.

Notes

  • The cover photo features geometric designs by Cosmo Guffa. If you look closely you might be able to see my name on the schedule in the background.
  • Even I am a little amazed at how well this set came together given how unplanned it was. All I had to work with was a playlist of about 500 tracks and deep familiarity with the material.
  • The opening sample is from Jim Morrison’s An American Prayer. Pleiadians AKA Etnica loved to sprinkle samples from this album into their work so I riffed on that, manipulating sounds with Traktor’s built-in effects to make it sound like part of the introductory track.
  • 22,000 downloads and 3,000 listens as of March 2019.
