Guests are encouraged to explore a bit further into their collections with an opportunity to step away from the dance floor if they desire.
Episode number thirteen in the podcast series is from 4NG3L4 a Brazilian DJ now based in Melbourne via Sydney where she started the Trench series of warehouse parties that expanded to include the annual Trench bush doof and also occasional club nights, south of Sydney and more recently outside of Melbourne..
This mix embraces the robotic funk and colder atmospheres of many excellent recent electro releases along with some classic tracks. I really enjoyed this mix and think that you will too.

What has been influential for you musically in the past, and also more recently?
That's a complex little question because i think music it's in everything.
So it might be just me but i feel influenced by everything, and i mean anything which it's embedded in nature.
Any sound is music so anything goes and is valid even the most rudimental instruments to the more modern ethnic base types. I don't take for granted the amount of musical baggage we carry on our genes, and that goes as long as life on earth, music goes side by side with life, that's what i think anyway.
With the Industrial revolution and urban landscapes, modern instruments came in and you had industrial and electronic sounds but you always had sounds of nature etc.. Sometimes you just want to listen to the rain!
Anyway.. I come from Brasilia, the capital of Brazil a city renowned for its modern architecture and unique arty urban planning. Not the worst place for creative types like me, a lot of good cultural phenomenons came from Brazil's new Capital, all that is very influential first.
In the past I was a resentful little kid so i was into Rock/Metal bands which i started to discover from radio and/or some from my Dad's CD's.
I was into a band called Religiāo Urbana from my Hometown (folk rock/new age) this was the first band I really fell in love with, but there was also Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Slipknot, Korn, RATM, Marilyn Manson etc, that was before i got into dance music in the late 90's : Eiffel 65 etc haha
Fast forward 20 years : Im still getting Influenced by many things, natural landscapes places, things.. and of course large numbers of musicians and bands i dig old and new. I’ve been digging real deep for a while now and there's just a lot of good stuff that i like.
Can you share your inspiration for the Trench parties?
My Inspiration comes from my own struggles and i'm trying to offer something a little bit different than usual to like minded people. The times we live now are pretty rough and music has kind lost it's meaning .. Pop Music just doesn't do it for me.
What are you listening to right now?
I just got a delivery from Lawrence English record "Cruel Optimism". Drone / Ambient ftw!
Who or what is inspiring you musically and otherwise at the moment?
All of the bastardry happening in the world right now .. local and international scenes and politics.. Im quite aware of all of it .. someone gotta push the envelope
What inspired your mix and where it was recorded?
It's inspired by friendship with a Electro lover and all around good guy DROX which was kind enough to ask me for a mix so that was made specially for him. Recorded at home in Melbourne ,
Any upcoming releases or gigs?
I have a small little gig coming up : Touch of at Loft at Club 77 in Sydney on the 13th of December and i'm likely to play a set sometime over New years at a friends private shindig near Melb.ourne.
Anything else you would like to share?
1 Hour DJ sets are an insult to the art form of DJing, it's impossible to offer any type of journey under 2-3hrs... Sadly i never played a long set at a club, except at the odd kick on.. the whole scene is broken in that sense. If you want a better party, DJs need length of set times ! :P
