- Under Control


Under Control is a free-wheeling two hour mix of deep, dark, and moody house with more upbeat, punchy, and melodic progressive techno. After experimenting with a more house-oriented direction this performance represented a convergence of influences, reuniting this project with elements more typically associated with DJ Basilisk.
