Brandon Rosenbluth aka xorzyzt, a well-known and pervasive force in Berlin’s dark underworld, is a busy man —- producing events, djing and touring alongside BlackBlackGold and Tom Ass as UnReaL; playing in bands reliq and Shaddah Tuum; booking European tours for littlebig Agency; engaging in video and performance art of the ‘metaphysical, shamanistic thread’; all while launching two new labels: Portals Editions (with Niko Shaddah Lfo, Ketev, and Marijn Degenaar), and UnReaL Audio, which just saw its first release with Born in Flamez. During our stay in Berlin last year, we caught him djing Stattbad & playing with his band at Berghain within our first few nights, and he remained a constant presence from there, throwing parties featuring House of Ladosha, ITAL, Stellar Om Source, and Light Asylum, to name a few.
Hot on the heels of a US tour (including a stop at our beloved Bossa Nova), this is the set he put together and fine tuned on the road: “In my signature style, I’ve consistently layered a number of tracks on top of one another including layers of drones and ambience in order to create an impenetrable wall of body-obliterating techno bliss.” From the first whispers of “what am i doing here?” we knew we were in for a ride, and as expected, this mix perfectly demonstrates his ability to drag you through the darkest corners of hell and still leave you gasping for more.
