Huge thanks to Shimotsukei and everyone who joined us for the Lucky Lotus broadcast of our b2b set. Hope to say more on the site soon but for now you can find the set on the FINRG soundcloud:

Here it is - a recording of my 2014 set at CODEX3. I reused parts of it in a Lucky Lotus mix the following year, but this version has a better tracklist overall, I think.

TYFTH is back in semi-hibernation at the moment, but I'm still working on a couple of things when time allows. Also, to make up for the lack of live sets lately there'll be an old event recording going online for the first time in the next day or two - keep an eye on youtube for that.

I have around half a set organised, but the next TYFTH Live isn't quite ready yet. Look out for it in March!

polaritia has posted an excellent, fairly beginner-friendly guide to freeform production, with some helpful visuals for non-Japanese readers:

Big thanks to everyone who joined me for the Alek-only set last night. It was really enjoyable as usual and it feels good to have managed a stream at shorter-than-usual notice. The video will be up on YouTube, with tracklist, asap.

After some more practice I've decided that this weekend's stream will be an Alek Szahala-only set. As well as working on transitions for the eventual, longer, Alek-only set, I'll be taking the chance to play some less-commonly heard tracks.

Already decided on the opening for next week's stream, as well as a couple of mid-set tracks.

Some older event videos are being reupped to the TYFTH YouTube over the next few days:

In the meantime, have been meaning to mention this excellent track from Khetzal. The other tracks on the comp are hit and miss, but this could be one of his best ever.

Mostly AFK until early next month, but will try to get a post up in the next day or so.

The original version of Distant Illusions started life as a possible Epyx & Cyrez and Betwixt & Between collaboration.

Haven't quite managed a TYFTH Live before the end of the month, but pencil in an NRG stream next weekend. Will update with day/time asap.

Semi-enforced silence so far this month, but there are some posts in the works that should appear soon.

Cyrez's multi-genre solo album was released yesterday and is a must-listen. Far from NRG but has some beautiful moments - and even a fabulous, relatively downtempo Distant Illusions remix for the freeform crowd.

Last night reminded me how useful streamed sets can be for practice, as well as how nice it is to spend some live time with the TYFTH crew. Thanks to everyone who stopped by, and plans are already afoot for at least one set next month.

TYFTH Live 002 will stream from 19:00 JST on 28th October (Sunday), with two shorter sets of and then .
