New mix!: Live @ Odessa Amsterdam

Posted on by Frederik Petzoldt, Posted in DJ sets, gigs, new mix .

So here’s a fresh Socrates set… this is part of a live set I played at the funky dance ship known as Odessa in Amsterdam.. I’ve been playing there regularly lately, contributing to the Ecstatic Dance nights. I’ve been doing this in my own way and at the same time harmonizing with the concept of Ecstatic Dance. Seems to work out as the people there enjoy dancing to my sets so far and as long as I can stay true to my own Capricorn style I do too!

Socrates @ Bajes Radio

Posted on by Frederik Petzoldt, Posted in DJ sets, new mix, RADIO, video .

Radio at an unusual location: the infamous (former) Amsterdam prison “Bijlmer Bajes.”
When I was invited to come and play a set I was intrigued. When I arrived I was truly surprised.. The place still echoed the grim prison days but at the same time had evolved into a mini village, a square with high walls obviously harbouring a dark past now had people chilling in hammocks surrounded by tropical plants, a hip restaurant, art expositions in prison cells, a haman.. and a very nice radio & recording studio. This is where I was welcomed to play.. and it was a pleasure! My host a very cool friendly guy and a DJ himself.. the sound in the studio was excellent.. and the dimmed light made me feel in the mood right away… As an tribute to the Autumn days ahead I chose to go for a a sensual, trippy forest set.. click for the link

French Summer vibes

Posted on by Frederik Petzoldt, Posted in new mix .

After a visit to the colourful city Marseille I was inspired to make a fresh summer mix! Reflecting the lyrical spicy multicultural atmosphere of this wonderful city.. a city where people live outside, drink, cover the walls with art, dance in the dark by the sea, carry their instruments across town on their back to play a gig somewhere, get a slice of hot pizza on the way or stop for some wine at a bar where they meet an old friend. Raw, dark, sunny, messy and allive..

Lets get the party started

New Zealand Reggae vibes

Posted on by Frederik Petzoldt, Posted in new mix .

Yes! I’ve taken the time to delve deeply into the reggae scene of New Zealand. I have family there and I’ve travelled around the north and south for a couple of months when I was 18.. I quickly found out there was a lively reggae scene there but never really looked much further then the usual suspects, such as Fat Freddy’s Drop & the Black Seeds. Now that I have I’ve found a lot more pearls in a genre I already loved. So I made a mixtape celebrating the diverse kiwi reggae sound which includes spacey dub, rock, disco funk, mariachi style brass and some cripsy electronic vibes.
A feelgood mixtape for the summer days ahead! Enjoy 🙂 click for the link
