February 14th 2021 CELEBRATING MY 53th BIRTHDAY not like i normally would with a gig or a dj-set somewhere. So i spinned a party for me myself and i, with a selection out of my personal favorite dancefloor classics you can traditionally find on MIXCLOUD !
But for the very first time, i filmed a part of the dj-set and spiced it up a bit, cuz normally i find dj streams and watching a dj in general rather boooring. But since these are exceptional times i made an exception. So you're all invited on my birthday party in my living room. Hope you enjoy !
February 11 2021 WHEN WORLDS COLLABORATE AND COLLIDE:
The new Psy'Aviah single got remixed by Butsenzeller and others, OUT NOW on the Alfa Matrix bandcamp, and every desired streaming platform !
