Last weekend, Nathan Micay opened up Saturday night of Telekom Electronic Beats Festival Budapest. Starting out with lush ambient and balearic vibes, he worked his way into progressive house and trance territory—effectively packing the dance floor in a matter of minutes.
Riding on the same vibe a couple of days later, Micay recorded a guest mix at Tim Sweeney’s illustrious Beats in Space radio show in New York. His set is an hour’s worth of raved-up, early ’90s-referencing tunage with an explicitly progressive and trancey feel. Starting with trippy balearic, he moves into more eclectic territory as the mix goes on, blending warped trance and breaks before delivering a very special R&B moment at the end. The mix is also stacked with a couple of unreleased gems coming out on his two new labels, Original Schvitz and Eternal Schvitz.
On another note, the producer and DJ has recently gone blonde, so we attribute his recent dancefloor-destroying mixes to the possibility he may have just gone super saiyan (see below).
