Tangerine Dream reLOADED

simon-iddolFree Music Friday: DJ and music blogger Simon Iddol shared this mix, a hybrid DJ set / live show, that he says is ‘created as a tribute to timeless electronica’.

The mix, which premiered on Radio FM4’s Liquid Radio, pairs classic Tangerine Dream tracks with contemporary tracks.

Here’s what Iddol has to say about the mix:

this is a mixtape. Tangerine Dream tracks back to back with contemporary modern tunes. Balearic, hip hop, deep house or even techno tracks slowed down, chopped and layered with classic Tangerine Dream songs.

the story started on my 10th anniversary party when I invited friends to DJ with me. GG, my ex-manager and the biggest Tangerine Deam fan I know, did ta classic electronica warmup, but he is not a DJ so I promised to be in the booth with him and I started to put beats under the the Tangerine Dream songs he played. It sounded wicked so I decided to do it properly.

This mix was aired on Radio FM4’s Liquid Radio show and now I uploaded it to the world, who had no chance to listen it live on FM4.

I also made a live act dj set hybrid out of this, the samples and loops are lined up in my Ableton, I mix them with a Roland MX-1 and I put extra drums into the mix from a Roland TR-8. It gets a deeper, more improvisative and experimental vibe when I play this live. A live video stream will happen soon.

  1. I have had an on and off love relationship with TD over the last 38yrs since I first heard them. The Froese/Franke/Baumann lineup WAS TD for me, closely followed by Froese/Franke/Schmoelling. The introduction of Ulrich more recently seems to be bearing interesting fruit. Im sitting here now, listening to Encore from 1977 and marvelling at the music. The dynamic sequences and the beautiful melodies are simply stunning. I (we) have a lot to thank TD for.

  2. Already listened to the mix yesterday. I enjoyed it. Seemed to capture a certain era of TD pretty well while highlighting similarities with music by other artists. As I am not very familiar with the stuff TD put of since the 80s this was educational to me on multiple levels. Thanks!
