Just one week today will see a mass of party goers and old skool ravers descending on Bath racecourse for the two day Retrotrax Festival. This event has been brought to fruition by hard working, visionary promoters, Ian Kenyon and Nick Sheldon, who have assembled one of the biggest line ups of ‘back in the day’ legends the UK has seen for a long time. Every musical genre of the the late 80s to late 90s is included, from House, Acid, Trance, Hardcore, Jungle, Techno to Progressive with all associated DJ’s representing their scene. In addition, upcoming PA’s for the event include Alison Limerick, Ce Ce Rogers, FPI Project, 2 Bad Mice, Sunscreem and more.

Denon + Dakeyne

I have the pleasure of DJ’ing at RetroTrax on the evening of Saturday the 12th in the House Arena. Not only for the music I’ll be playing (exclusively late 80s/early 90s house) and the no doubt up for it crowd I’ll be playing to, I’m also lucky enough to be premiering the all new Denon SC3900 decks during my full performance. The SC3900′s are digital-media turntable controllers, with the most awesome vinyl platter representation I’ve ever had my hands on. Denon themselves describe it as DJ’s now having..  ‘a choice between DJing with a turntable, a turntable and software, or a CDJ/Controller’. Capable then of playing CD’s, operating as a no limits DVS system with the likes of Serato Scratch, as a standard DJ controller or utilising Denon’s all new ‘Engine’ software. Engine is a music management solution enabling DJ’s the ultimate in set preparation, playback and control. I’ll actually be using the SC3900′s with the Engine software via an Apple iPad during my set so am very much looking forward to that.

Old Skool Download

So naturally, excitement is building for this massive event in Bath on the 12th~13th of May, so I’ve prepared a special one hour promo mix as a teaser to my own set I’ll be playing at the event. It’s available via the soundcloud link below as a free download for everyone reading this – stick it on your iPods, burn it onto CD for the car journey to RetroTrax, whatever you’d like, but be quick as the link for this mix will expire one week after the event. Right, I’m off to prepare my set with Denon’s Engine software and get busy using those SC3900′s too – see you guys at RetroTrax.
