ERACAST006 curated by Helmut J & Ryan Sullivan, now available on Mixcloud.

Thrum Room founder Helmut J and resident Ryan Sullivan come together to display their love for dub techno by regularly showcasing this sound when they dj back to back. Helmut J’s personally curated Thrum Room podcast series is a highly respected brand, upholding the genre in Southern Africa.

From the Thrum Room website :

The idea behind Thrum Room was conceived and executed in December 2012 by Helmut J & Robin Would who decided to make something corporeal of their love and passion for the dubbier side of House and Techno. Thus the Dub Techno concept night (Thrum Room) and podcast series (Thrumcast) was born.

Live recording from the Main Room, opening for Efdemin on the 24 October 2015.

My set for Rocking the Daisies on 4 October 2014. I was booked to open the Beach Bar floor with a downtempo set. I don’t get booked for chill out sets often, so I was more than excited to do it.

I’ve included all my favourite types of downtempo, including ambient, chill dub techno, trip hop and ends off with some super chilled deep house.

The set was compiled and recording as an Ableton Live DJ set.

“Johannesburg born and now Cape Town based Dj Helmut J joins us in studio for this weeks instalment. As co-founder of the highly acclaimed Thrum Room podcast series, we expected nothing less than the highest quality from this Dj.

He kicks of the mix in true Thrum Room style with quirky dub techno taking the journey towards deep tech house. The transitions are smooth and slick.

The long history of always pushing sounds lesser known to the masses, expresses the love Helmut J has for his music and the belief he has in what he does.

Thank you to Helmut and much respect for joining us in studio.”

In July 2013 I was asked to perform a dj set for the legendary D-Rail brand, in the form of their 10th reunion event. Taking into consideration the gravity of what this event represented to so many people I decided to include some old and some new progressive, tech house and techno. The older progressive tracks are a few of the many that shaped me going forward as a DJ, especially those from Chab, Chris Fortier and MV. I also decided to begin the mix with a more recent breakbeat release, a ritual synonymous with the Global Underground brand in their earlier releases.
