Taken from a recent set at Villa, where Øyvind Morken warmed up for Ron Morelli, this mix made it on to the Dimensions podcast series, where Morken is due to make a return appearance this year. An opener set playing in lower BPMs and picking at fringes of electronic music through ambient, synth wave, and dub before moving into a familiar House beat right at the end when he hands things over to Ron Morelli. “Øyvind Morken’s unique style is obvious… moving with ease between genres and tempos without losing contact with the dance floor”, says Dimensions of this mix. Polyphonic rhythms roll over each other in Øyvind Morken’s scattered assemblage, with the DJ moving effortlessly between styles and genres, continually building the tension as he prepares the floor for the ensuing night.
*Øyvind Morken plays our lounge every Wednesday for Untzdag and is in our basement, all night long tonight.
