There are two things you can’t avoid in life… one is taxes and the other is absolutely thumping mixes from internationals playing festivals across Australia it seems!
The mix from Dutch giant is yet more A++ quality curation following the Patrick Topping set we also posted recently from Rainbow Serpent.
Patrice certainly has a soft spot for the festival saying it is “…an anomaly on the rave map” in it’s nature to Berlin adding that “Simply standing on the dancefloor and experience this incredible sound system is one of life’s finer pleasures.” – huge!
The mix bounces through rare and obscure cuts along with clangers from Otto, &ME, Audiofly and many, many more.
“Ahead of my GU42 Berlin album release on March 29th, I wanted to share a very special live set from the other side of the planet. Like Berlin, Rainbow Serpent is an anomaly on the rave map. This mix will be online for a very limited period only:
The best dance floor in the world. That’s the Market Stage of Rainbow Serpent Festival to me. The energy of the Rainbow tribe, the rabid vibe and feeling of unity are difficult to describe to anyone who has not been here. Simply standing on the dancefloor and experience this incredible sound system is one of life’s finer pleasures. I felt absolutely honoured to be trusted with the task to close the festival. Looking onto the dancefloor from the dj booth, the Market Stage painted a beautiful picture. The atmosphere was electric and love-drunk all day, Nick Warren and D-Nox brought their A-game.
This is my third year in a row playing here and the absolute highlight on my yearly calendar. In these years my wife and I have made friends for life here, which is why we release this mix with our beloved Wildwood crew. We have grown extremely fond of Australia as a country. This place has received us with open arms from day one and never fails to blow our minds in many different ways. It has become our second home.
I want to thank the entire Rainbow crew for creating a place of artistic expression, of self-discovery, education and togetherness. This is much more than a festival, it’s a template of how to build a community.” – Patrice Baumel
